They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it certainly is if you're looking to start 2018 the right way and keep your gut healthy. Perhaps the most effective way to maintain a strong, robust gut is to enjoy a regular intake of yoghurt.
This popular dairy product, made by the bacterial fermentation of milk, has a plethora of nutritional benefits, not least for your stomach. Many yoghurts have probiotics, which are 'good' bugs that live and thrive in your digestive tract and help mitigate the number of potentially harmful bacteria inside your gut, which can lead to unwanted intestinal infections. It's not just good for your gut either; yoghurt is also jam-packed with vitamins that improve bone strength, maintain red blood cells and keep your nervous system functioning as it should.
If you're looking for some nutritious breakfast snacks available for delivery across London and many other major UK towns and cities, check out these four yoghurt-based dishes that will curb your appetite and keep you going for longer.
1. Smoked Salmon & Egg Muffin with Spinach and Dill Yoghurt
LEON is a chain that focuses firmly on delivering fast food that makes a difference to your everyday life. It has many cafes in and around London, with the Bankside restaurant focusing firmly on breakfast snacks that are the perfect morning pick-me-up. If you enjoy a spot of eggs royale, you'll love their smoked salmon and egg muffin, topped with a tangy spinach and dill yoghurt that's packed with vitamins and probiotics that help lower cholesterol and improve immunity.
2. Coconut Yoghurt and Compote Pot
A quintessential English-style delicatessen with fresh produce sourced daily from a farm in rural Gloucestershire.
