Truthfully, I’m not a breakfast person, maybe more of a big snacker late in the morning. Getting up earlier just so I can make myself a meal is not an option, so most of the time I end up in the local grocery shop getting a pastry or something equally bad. Lately I’ve been trying to avoid those trips and think about healthier alternatives.
Overnight Porridge (quinoa + oats + buckwheat + toppings)
Incredibly easy to make and what’s even better, you can make a batch to last you for entire week. Just mix buckwheat, with some quinoa and regular oats with some water or non-dairy milk and leave it overnight. Next day take a portion and add your preferred toppings. I added dried bananas, almonds, flaxseed, agave syrup, coconut and some soya yoghurt. Perfect to take with me to work, since I don’t take time to eat it at home.
Smoothies (banana + avocado + berries + proteins)
Everything you need to do, is throw some stuff in the blender. Stock on loads of different fruit and veggies, so you have options. I went for bananas, avocado and frozen forest berries. Added a spoon of hemp proteins and some cocoa for better taste. Also opted for some yoghurt this time, but you can go with just non-dairy milk. When you’re happy with the mix, blend away!
