MY TOP 5 HEALTHY BREAKFAST MEALS!

My moto when it comes to food is pretty simple :
As long as its GOOD TO YOU (tastes amazing!) and is GOOD FOR YOU ( healthy) then I’m always down to try it!

As part of a lifestyle change I had to make, I have recently created a new food menu to help me stay full of healthy meal ideas and pay more attention to what I eat!

Here are just a few of my current favourite breakfast dishes!

1. AVOCADO TOAST WITH EGG

Ok so besides the fact that I just generally love Avocados, they are actually super good for you as they contain:
– Potassium: which helps control blood pressure
– Lutein: good for your eyes & minimizes damage from ultraviolet light
– Folate: crucial for cell repair and lowers the risk of stomach/colon cancer
– Digestion: The natural fibres can help prevent constipation
Eggs are also a great source of protein that raise the “good” cholesterol in your body as well as promote heart health as the contain choline.

I’m typically a brown seeded bread kind of girl, though lately Ive started to try it with Rye bread which tastes equally as good and is even better for you

HOW TO MAKE IT:
Just cut an avocado in half, scoop out the goodness and spread it onto some toast, add either scrambles, poached, fried or boiled egg and any additional toppings of your choice and Voila ! p.s. always add a little salt and pepper

2. OATMEAL BREAKFAST BOWL

Which one would you prefer?

Oats are a gluten-free whole grain that contain tons of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants. The beauty about this dish is that there are so many variations to how you can make it.
With Either Natural Yoghurt, Granola, Oats or Quinoa as your base, you can add any and every topping from berries, nuts, bananas, granola, cinnamon, honey etc

HOW TO MAKE IT:
My go to (bottom right pic) is Oats with lacto-free or almond milk topped with bananas, strawberries and chia seeds with a little cinnamon or honey on top, only because I almost always have bananas at home so I just use whatever I have at the time.

TOP TIP: Have the toppings you desire ready the night before so in the morning you can quickly just grab a bowl throw in a base, throw them on top and you’re good to go- solid breakfast before work or before a workout! It’s not everyday Starbucks and Pret!

3. OATMEAL PANCAKES

Ok these are lowkey becoming my fave! I have started to make these on the weekends or whenever I have a bit more time on my hands and I can’t lie it tastes amazing!

HOW TO MAKE IT:
  – blend 100g of oats, 2 egg yolks, 1 banana, 125ml almond milk, vanilla extract 2 tsp baking powder until its a smooth texture
  – Hand Whisk/ fold in the 2 egg whites
  – place vegetable or coconut oil in non stick pan and use 2 tablespoons of the batter per pancake until the base sets and you have some bubbles on top
– Flip and cook the other side
  – add bananas, nuts and/or strawberries and syrup as you desire!



4. NUT BUTTER, BANANA AND CHIA SEED TOAST

I love a good PB & J (peanut butter and jelly/jam sandwich) but I wanted to try a slightly healthier alternative for breakfast and recently discovered this

Nut Butter makes you feel full longer, contains the antioxidant vitamin E, bone-building magnesium, muscle-friendly potassium, immune system boosting vitamin B6 and is also high with monounsatu-rated fat, which is good for the heart. Plus the crunchy kind tastes great in sandwiches!



HOW TO MAKE IT:
– Spread two pieces of toast with almond or peanut butter.
– Sprinkle with chia seeds and top with several slices of banana.
– Add cinnamon or honey if you want extra sweetness.


5. SPINACH TOMATO OMELETTE

HOW TO MAKE IT:
– Whisk 2 eggs, salt and pepper and any additional seasoning in a bowl
– Pour the egg mixture into the heated frying pan containing a little oil
– As it starts to cook Arrange spinach, tomatoes, onions (cheese is also optional) in the middle of the eggs.
– Once bottom side is cooked, use a spatula to loosen omelet from the pan flip it until other side is cooked then serve up and enjoy
(add cheese or small sweet potato chunks for other variations)


TOP TIPS:
1. DO NOT SKIP BREAKFAST!
– especially if you work out or are going to work in the morning, your body needs adequate fuel to start the day!
I’ve gotten so used to having breakfast that I actually cant bare the feeling of a rumbling stomach in the morning anymore so if I’m fasting I drink loads of water !
2. MAKE TIME TO EAT RIGHT– Waking up just 15 mins earlier means you have time to whip up a quick oatmeal bowl and have a glass of juice before you head out the door which means you save the £4-6 you would have spent getting breakfast in Pret that morning! #WordToTheWiseLol
3. ENJOY WHAT YOU EAT – Find what works for you and is good for you and enjoy it.
