Breakfast, in my opinion is the most important meal of the day. It can either fuel you or set you up for a blood-sugar disaster! Whilst, I indulge on rounds of sourdough toast on the weekends, I like to keep my weekday breakfasts healthy, protein-packed and nutritious. Below are a few of my most common go-to breakfasts and their recipes to go with them. Enjoy!
1. Smoothie Bowl
This is my favourite in warmer weather and I because I know that I’m getting my daily dose of fruit in early. The added protein makes sure that I am full for the whole morning and fuels me up for the day.
Smoothie Bowl Recipe
1 frozen banana
A handful of frozen blueberries/raspberries
1 handful of spinach
3/4 cup water/coconut milk
1 serving of Form Nutrition Vanilla Protein
On days where I don’t need as much ‘fuel’ I opt for a light breakfast, packed with probiotics from yoghurt, fibre from the granola and antioxidant-rich fruits. I sometimes add a spoon of almond butter for an added dose of healthy fat and protein.
In this bowl: CoYo Coconut Yoghurt, chopped strawberries, Eat Natural Granola, Pip n nut smooth almond butter.
This is my go-to breakfast for when I have a workout or a run planned later on that day. The oats help to keep your blood sugar stable, as they are high in fibre. I top my porridge with fruit and chopped nuts and have perfected my recipe for basic oats! Find it below:
Add 1/2 cup rolled oats and 3/4 cup coconut milk into a pan and cook on a medium heat for 3 minutes, add in 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla extract and half a chopped banana. Stir and cook until banana is soft. Serve with the rest of the chopped banana and a handful of blueberries.
One for the weekend, or a treat for mid-week if you have the time to cook it! I love a poached egg on sourdough toast with the added protein of some Linda McCartney sausages.
