QUICK HEALTHY BREAKFAST FIX || HOW TO HAVE THE PERFECT BREAKFAST – FRUIT AND NUT PARFAIT THE PERFECT BREAKFAST YOU WOULDN’T SKIP.

Be sure to add this perfect breakfast fix – fruit and nut parfait to your meal list.

One of my goals for this year is to make sure I eat healthy and try as much as possible to not skip breakfast. To carry out daily activities effectively, we all need to make sure we do not skip having breakfast – the most important meal to stay healthy. I did a little research on healthy breakfast, and I love trying out the fruit and nut parfait.

FRUIT AND NUT PARFAIT

Wondering what parfait is?…

Parfait is the French word for perfect, and when you add whole grains and fruit to yogurt to create a delicious breakfast or snack treat, you are perfecting yogurt’s already considerable health benefits. Typically, a yogurt parfait consists of layers of yogurt, grains such as granola or crushed gram crackers and fruit. When the fat and calories are low, it can be a healthful choice at fast-food restaurants and coffeehouses.

How do you know if your parfait is healthy?

if you look at the Nutrition Facts Panel, you would find out some yoghurt has as much sugar content as ice cream. Choose a low-sugar or a plain yogurt.  Now, I know what you are thinking, plain yogurt just is not sweet enough!  I agree. In most cases, you might find that after adding some fruit and granola the plain yogurt tastes sweet enough anyway. Regular, Greek yoghurt, the list goes on – the best option of yoghurt will depend on individual protein goals and the other foods you consume throughout the day.  If you are making a yogurt parfait for breakfast and yogurt ends up being your main source of protein. Choosing a higher protein yogurt, like Greek, may be a better option for you.  If yogurt is a side dish along with your scrambled eggs and bacon, on the other hand, you could stick with regular yogurt. Ultimately, it all depends on your individual goals and taste preferences. From berries to bananas you can create limitless fruit combinations, make sure to choose fresh fruit. Take one look at the Nutrition Facts Panel and the sugar content will surprise you!  A good rule of thumb is to choose a granola with less than 10g of sugar per serving or as low as you can find.

Benefits of Fruit and Nut Parfait

  1. Greek yoghurt is a fat free versions of yoghurt are an excellent source of protein, calcium, and microorganism that help keep the digestive system working properly.
  2. Diets rich in fruits and vegetables lower blood pressure and reduce risks of heart disease.
  3. The healthiest grains to use are oatmeal, low-fat granola or crushed crackers because they are rich in complex carbohydrates that regulate your digestive system and blood sugar level.

 

How to create a healthy Parfait

You are better off making your own parfait than purchasing one. Although the ingredients contained in a yogurt parfait are essentially healthy, many unnecessary sugars are usually found in this food. Restaurants can add sugar to a parfait to enhance the flavour. It is fine to purchase a store bought yogurt parfait now and then, as there are several worse breakfast choices you could make. Make sure you read the nutrition label and examine the parfait to guarantee you’re making the right decision and not gearing up for a sugar high.

It is simple to create your own healthy nutritious parfait. All you need to make your own healthy and nutritious parfait are some fresh fruits – you be creative with your preference on fruit choice, fat free yoghurt and dry, plain oatmeal or mixed nuts or granola. Simply layer your ingredients in a tall glass with yoghurt at the bottom of the glass, and top it with granola and fruits until you reach the top of the glass. Viola, you just created a breakfast full of vitamins and saved yourself unnecessary calories gain.

FRUIT AND NUT PARFAIT

I chose to lay my ingredients in a bowl by creating a bed of Greek yoghurt, and laying mixed granola with raisins and almond nuts, grapefruit, sliced strawberries, kiwi and banana side by side on the Greek yoghurt.

FRUIT AND NUT PARFAIT

Now you know essential food stuffs to add to your grocery list so you don’t miss out on great nutrients values well as keeping you active at work .

So when I saw this red stripped puff sleeve, I knew I had to have it. I love this red stripped shirt for several reasons, for one thing the puff sleeves, the high and low hems(this could pass off as a structured shirt), and the neck area and the fact that it also comes with a loop belt. I also like that I can dress it up and down by simply wearing the belt for a more refined look and taking off the belt for a more casual look.

I chose to style it with a red pants, leopard print shoes and a strucutured brown bag, plus pairing such a fun shirt with my diy sunglasses just felt right for a Thursday or Friday work look!

DIY ATHLEISURE PANTS – THE RED TREND

2017 Athleisure pants – A versatile and wardrobe staple so its very appropriate that the red trend thriving from the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan, designers featuring the red hue.

No doubt red is the my colour for this year, not only is it appropriate colour during  Christmas and Valentine period it is also as a versatile and wardrobe staple so its very appropriate that the red trend thriving from the runways of New York, London, Paris and Milan, designers featuring the red hue last year – Max Mara embodies this trend giving us some power looks in fabrics like cashmere, sheepskin, velvets etc. Fendi flirting red with sheer in flowy fabric to Victoria Bechkam in a more subte simple styles to Balenciga knitted wears to Jill Sanders, Valentino, Prabal Gurung , Roksanda – the list goes on. You can agree with me that these designers had got together to remind us that the red is the colour for the season, ladylike and daring and powerful look – making a strong impact in power red.

As a fan of this trend, I embraced the cherry red taking cue from the runway shows by making my own athleisure red pants. I started off by downloading a template for pants, taking my measurements and eventually making this pants from start to finish with needle and thread. The process/steps of making this pants turned out to be very long and might get confusing if you don’t have the knowledge of cutting and sewing fabrics.

So today’s post I saved you the stress of making a pants from start to finish (let me know in the comment box, if you would like to see a detailed post on making your own pants) and showing your the finishing touch of the pants which is adding black ribbon to the sides of the pants to give the athletic wear look.

What you’ll need:

  • a pair of red trousers
  • black ribbon
  • scissors
  • thread
  • needle
  • pins

Here’s a video on how to make your own athleisure pant.

HOW TO WEAR THE RED TREND

  1. Matchy red: Go all out by picking your preferable red. Now is the time for daring and bold fashionistas to go all-in wearing red-to-toe.
  2. Wear red top: Red top has always been a wardrobe staple and anyone can style a red top
  3. Wear red bottom: opt for a pair of athletic red pants or red patent skirt to create a statement style. Something as simple as a red skirt, black band t-shirt and white sneakers can look very chic or red pant paired with white buttoned down shirt and black stilettos heels for a boss lady look
  4. Make a statement with your red accessories: Not leaving the minimalist out of the trend, bold hue accessories like the berets, fanny pack, boots can make a statement without appearing too intense.

‘NEW YEAR NEW ME’ SYNDROME

Rebuke the ‘New Year New Me status and start something new; New Year Better Me!

Happy New Year friends! Yassss, we made it to 2018, I am so excited and thankful – It is the dreaded time of the year, where every social media feeds and post are filled ‘New Year New Me’ captions. If not all but most of us already have New Year Resolutions, some of them pretty serious, some certainly achievable, others don’t even stand the test of time. Although I’m also guilty – diagnosed with the New Year New Me Syndrome in the past years but as I get older and face real life challenges I realize life is more serious than making resolutions and not working towards achieving them.

After having the worst year 2015 and a struggling 2016 and evaluating that year, I decided I was going to have a good 2017 by focusing on the things that matter most to me – myself – snapping out of depression. I decided to make myself happy and better in 2017 because a happy you is happiness for everyone. There many ways to be a better version of you.

Instead of solely focusing on things that don’t really matter, look deeper and discover what really important to you, something you want and something you want to do that would make your life better – as many resolution go down the drain, seek to be in right frame of mind – emotionally, mentally, physically stable first. To make resolutions work, we need to evaluate the resolutions made in the previous year, identify which resolution did not pull through, the reason why these resolutions were not met and establish a viable solution, make goals that are specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, time-based and challenging. Write down your goals, break big and scary goals into doable monthly, weekly and daily tasks, and create action plans that are realistic for your lifestyle, track progress and accomplishments to know when milestones are reached.

NEW YEAR NEW ME SYNDROME

Make this year the best version of yourself so that at the end of this year, rebuke the ‘New Year New Me status and start something new; New Year Better Me! You would be more than fulfilled how your goals come to existence and proud of yourself and not just dwelling in the new year new me syndrome and in few weeks tired of resolutions we made and nothing is achieved.

ANNOUNCEMENT!!!

This is year is going to be amazing for us all, and I cannot wait for you guys to see all I have in store for you in addition I have planned to give you guys 2 post weekly – Every Mondays and Thursdays for this year. I promise to inspire and motivate you friends at all times. 2018 is a year for more growth and greatness, so let us all step into greatness together.

Did you love this post? What do you expect to see from this blog this year? Have any something to say?

STYLING CO-ORDS – WHY YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE CO-ORDS?

Co-ordinates also known as matchy-matchy, two-piece sets, co-ords have seriously taken the fashion world by storm owing a fashion statement piece is very essential and must have wardrobe staple.

When I think of co-ords, I probably think back to when I was a kid and my mum made me these colourful floral pattern sets – a short and a peter pan collar shirt – a style many people did not like back then, I remember how much I loved those sets. The memories of those matchy sets made me to purchase these ones but this time around, I had some pointers to consider.
Co-ordinates also known as matchy-matchy, two-piece sets, co-ords have seriously taken the fashion world by storm and as a stylista owing a fashion statement piece is essential. Co-ords are match made in heaven; they are versatile and can be styled differently.

STYLING CO-ORDS - WHY YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE CO-ORDSSTYLING CO-ORDS - WHY YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE CO-ORDSSTYLING CO-ORDS - WHY YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE CO-ORDSSTYLING CO-ORDS - WHY YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE CO-ORDS

Why you are going to love co-ords?
1. The price of 1 for 3 – you have the bottom, top as 2 separate pieces and combination of both for a complete look.
2. They make life easier. Co-ords are lifesavers for day s when there nothing to wear.
3. There are different options of co-ords style, fabric and pattern from plaid to floral to mesh, knit, lace, faux leather, almost in any fabric you can think of – you have a wide option to choose from!
4. You can buy co-ords for different occasions and weather, so come rain, come shine; you have tonnes of go-to outfits to suit every occasion.

STYLING CO-ORDS - WHY YOU'RE GOING TO LOVE CO-ORDS (1)

POINTERS:
“Styling co-ords can get a little tricky. It all about finding the right balance and silhouette”.
– Find out the co-ords in fabric and pattern that works for your body type: As I stated earlier, I had few pointers to consider, my body type, the pattern and type of fabric aside knowing that I needed co-ords with shorts.
– Considering my body type – top heavy and petite, I opted for a low v-cut sleeveless peplum top and shorts in contrasting stripes. The top in horizontal stripes which is not suitable for top heavy but the presence of a peplum serves to slim the waist creating an illusion of an hour glass figured when paired with the shorts which were loose-fitted came in vertical stripes that tend to elongate the legs and illusion of a bigger bottom.

I love that this co-ords can be styled up or down, I had styled the two-piece set with a tie strap heels appropriate for a date night.

LAYERING BLACK TURTLENECK

Black turtlenecks, versatile and perfect on their own tucked into a skirt or jeans and also work beautifully when layered as I styled giving that swan-like effect.

Black turtlenecks, versatile and perfect on their own tucked into a skirt or jeans and also work beautifully when layered as I styled giving that swan-like effect.

I tucked a black fitted turtleneck into my black pallazo for an easy black base layered the low v-cut  sleeveless peplum on top and finished the outfit with my go-to sunglasses, and  faux fur pom pom heels makes it perfect for a night out or a meeting during the day.

LAYERING BLACK TURTLENECK

  • Choosing the appropriate turtleneck for the weather.

The lightweight turtlenecks are ideal for layering – works for those of us in Nigeria with somewhat hot or cold especially during the harmattan season and rainy season.

LAYERING BLACK TURTLENECK

  • Embrace a monochromatic look.

No one ever goes wrong in a monochromatic look. These elevates the look from a nothing-to-wear matching pieces of same colour to form a viable outfits. All in black – pair of turtleneck and a high waist pallazo, heels, sunglasses without the sleeveless shirt would makes a good monochromatic look.

LAYERING BLACK TURTLENECK

  • Mixing up minimalist look with stripes.

Style you hair into a sleek bun –  this slims out and makes the neck appear longer and keeps away from discomfort – with stud earrings for a classic minimalist look. To complete the look layered with a stripe sleeveless that makes its way to the minimalist wardrobe.

LAYERING BLACK TURTLENECK

  • Ditch the blazer or jacket

When wearing sleeveless isn’t quite possible, turtleneck allows you to wear your sleeveless clothing without replacing the use of a jacket. Considering the sleeveless without the turtleneck, the turtleneck elevates the whole outfit by providing coverage to the low v-cut sleeveless top allowing this outfit appropriate for work or church.

I can assume you’ve been wondering why I haven’t posted in a long time. What happened?! – I moved to a new website. I moved from styledbytonye.com to bytonye.com. I felt the name StyledbyTonye was to cliche to fashion and being that I do mostly diys (do-it-yourself), an urgent need to change the name and transition to grow was needed. Its been 4 months now since the move and great changes and oppurtunity has crossed my path. So do I regret the change? Absolutely not!
