EASY, ENERGY-PACKED DELICIOUS BREAKFAST IDEAS
In my last article, I explained why breakfast is so important for preventing chronic illnesses, helping with weight issues and boosting mental and physical alertness.
To feel fuller for longer and really improve focus, energy and general sense of wellbeing, always include a wholegrain, good fats and some protein in your breakfast feast.
Here are some easy and delicious recipes to kick start a healthy energy-packed day:
Super-rich muesli: oats (or other gluten-free flakes: quinoa, millet, buckwheat, rice) + 1 tbsp raw unsalted nuts + 1 tbsp seeds (chia, linseeds, sunflower, pumpkin, sesame..) + 1 tbsp dessicated coconut + 1 tbsp goji berries – eat with your favourite milk or plain yogurt – add a cut up date or fresh blueberries or 1 tsp of raw honey (optional).
Go go smoothie: ½ glass of almond/rice/coconut milk (or plain live organic yogurt) + 1 handful of kale + 1 handful of fresh berries + 1 tbsp seeds + 1 tbsp dessicated coconut. Blend thoroughly.
Energy-rich scramble: Eggs + kale + fresh/dried herbs scrambled on top of almond- buttered wholemeal wheat/rye toast.
Quinoa porridge: substitute oats with quinoa |(always rinsed) and cook with your favourite milk. Add a tsp of cinnamon, a handful of raw unsalted nuts, seeds and blueberries and a tsp of raw unpasteurized honey (optional).
