Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You should aim to eat no later than 30 minutes after rising and pack your breakfast full of protein and good fats. This ensures stable blood sugar levels and helps keep you feeling full until morning tea. Here are my favourite breakfast ideas if you’re after a little inspiration:
Smoothie bowl – I get addicted to smoothie bowls over summer. Think super cold, super think, super tasty and packed full of superfoods for extra energy. You can check out my favourite smoothie bowl recipe here.
Smoothie – great option when you’re short on time. They’re easy to make the night before, store in the fridge and drink on the run. My fave breakfast smoothie recipe is here.
Eggs – eggs are probably my favourite way to start the day because they’re packed with protein and good fats. I love poached eggs, omelettes and mini frittatas for breakfast. If you know you have a big day ahead of you, choose eggs.
Granola – I make a batch of granola on the weekend and enjoy throughout the week with yoghurt, fruit and/or almond milk. My chocolate granola recipe is here. Your granola will keep for a couple of weeks in an airtight container so it’s a great option to have in the pantry.
Porridge – a great winter warming breakfast. I make mine with rolled oats or quinoa flakes and top with heaps of extras for added flavour. My two favourite recipes are here and here. If you’re short on time make a big batch of the dry porridge ingredients and store in a container. Then all you have to do is add milk and stir for a few minutes on the stove.
Pancakes – the perfect weekend treat. Pancakes are a favourite of mine. I make mine using a base of almond meal, cinnamon, banana, eggs and almond milk. My recipe is here.
Breakfast bowl – this is my go-to breakfast because it’s super easy and I always have the ingredients lying around. It basically contains fruit, superfoods and yoghurt. My favourite recipe is here.
Chia pudding – these puddings can be made the night before and kept in the fridge. You might like to top it with yoghurt, fruit and superfoods. If you’re likely to be eating on the run, make it in a jar or container so you can grab it and go. My recipe is here.
