Whether you’re a morning person or not, I’m sure you’ll agree that every now and then you get a little tired of having the same breakfast over and over again. If you’re like me, often the days I decide to switch things up and have something different are the days I am short of time and cannot spend hours perfecting pancakes.
By providing your body with a nutritious, nutrient-dense breakfast in the morning you’ll help ensure that you keep your body fuelled for the day ahead. Here are a few ideas you can use to mix up your mornings:
Porridge topped with fresh fruit, seeds and nut butter
Simply add 3/4 of a cup of oats (I used Delicious Alchemy) with 250ml milk and a splash of water into a pan and simmer until you reach your desired consistency. Pour into a bowl and top with fresh berries, chia seeds and nut butter!
Toast with scrambled eggs, mushrooms and dwarf beans
Add a spoon of coconut oil into a frying pan and gently fry the mushrooms and beans until lightly cooked. Toast the bread and slice in half. Place the bread and vegetables on a plate and then crack 2 eggs into the frying pan. Avoiding too much stirring, cook the eggs until lightly done. Pour the eggs onto the plate and top with fresh chives.
Fluffy Protein Pancakes
For the perfect pancake recipe, check out @hannaheats_’s recipe on her website here. Fill with nut butter, banana, a cheeky spread of Nutella and seeds.
Greek yoghurt topped with Granola, frozen berries and coconut flakes
Place 200-300g of yoghurt (greek or natural) into a bowl – I often stir in a scoop of protein powder depending on how I feel. Top with frozen berries, granola, nuts, seeds and coconut flakes!
