Ever since doing the Gut Makeover, I’ve been really into keeping my breakfast grain free 5 days a week. This isn’t because there’s anything wrong with grains – I love grains and eat them all the time. It’s more about giving me space in my diet to make sure I’m including a wide variety of other foods, especially fruit and vegetables. This little collection of recipes are my regular go to breakfasts.
Carrots for breakfast woman? Are you mad? I hear someone say. For sure. But no, I’m not (well not unusually so) and this combination makes for a delicious vegetable loaded breakfast that will keep you full for hours. So ditch the cereal and start getting a little more creative at the beginning of the day.
How great is carrot cake? And how good is chia pudding? Why haven’t I tried to combine the two before? I mean, it’s also a brilliant way of including an extra serve of vegetables at breakfast. Plus it’s filled with warm spices and makes your kitchen smell amazing.
A super simple make ahead breakfast that will put a smile on your face in the morning. I love peanut butter in both sweet and savoury dishes, and this slightly sweet dessert is given a nutty protein kick with a good dollop of roasted peanut butter.
Going out for brunch is great, but making it at home is better (sometimes). Primarily because you don’t have to get dressed. And if you’re feeling super indulgent you can just go right back to bed after. What could be better? Okay, someone else in your house hold making these. Email them the list. Go on, ain’t got no time to be subtle.
Vegemite on toast is delicious it’s true, as is peanut butter, but having the same thing all the time can get seriously boring. Here’s some nutrient dense, refined sugar free ways to start your morning with a bang. And I promise it’s not just avocado toast 7 ways 😉
An easy to make ahead recipe for those mornings when you’re going to have to eat on the go. These muffins are full of protein, fibre and antioxidants thanks to the key ingredients, making them a great start to your day.
This muesli is light, crunchy and great for anyone who wants something for breakfast that is a little lower in fat and sugar than muesli loaded with nuts and dried fruit. It’s also a great muesli if you can’t eat nuts or dried fruit which sums up my new housemate and I perfectly. Instead of nuts the crunch comes from toasted seeds, coconut and puffed grains, the flavours are warm and lightly spiced and served with some fresh fruit (hey berries, so glad you’re fructose content is so friendly to me) and yoghurt/milk it makes for a quick and easy breakfast.
There’s a lot of things other than food that I think about. Well not a lot of things but some, really. And some of them are even interesting and worth sharing. With that in mind I’ve decided to start a ‘Friday Finds’ series of posts where I can blab about other things that I’m excited about/ obsessing over. To be honest this is still going to include food. Just not my own recipes, so totally different right?
