Whether you are a person who loves long and big breakfest or someone who rather skip it, my suggestion is - pack it with healthy nutrients. We DO need to fill in our energy sources, prepare our bodies - and minds - for a succesfull day! I wrote mind, because our brains are totally dependent on glykogen. Glykogen is a stored form of glukos, which we get from carbohydrates. It is the most effectfull and fast source of energy - both for muscles and brain. But when we hear carbohydrates uuurgghh, most of you might think of white bread and rice. Carbohydrates come from yes - starches but also from fruits and vegetables.
I give you few different kind of nutritious breakfest ideas, pick your favourite or alternate between them!
1. Classic porridge
I remember a time in my life when i was seriously addicted to oat porridge. Nowadays i have it at least once a week.
Recipe for 1 person
1 dl oats
2 dl soy milk ( any milk of your choice)
pinch of salt
pinch of cinnamon
1 tbs granola ( pick the one full of nuts and seeds)
alternatively add some other fruits like apples, berries or maple sirup
Cook oats with milk and spices on medium heat until whole liquid is absorbed. You can always add more milk or water if you wish. Thats it! tops with granola, fruit, sirup ( if you are using one). You can get really creative here!
Tip: if you are the one who is busy in the mornings make overnightoats. Just mix oats and spices with milk in a jar and place it in your fridge. Top with your choice of ingredients in the morning.
2. Avocado sandwich
You will need organic, sourdough bread and a half ripe avocado. There is no need to use butter, but it's up to you! Transfer avocado on to your bread and mash it with a fork. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chilli flakes. I love to have it with poached egg en top. Vegan option is obviously without any butter and egg :)
3. Protein pancakes
Yesss brunch favourite on your weekday! Here not a classical way, but way more nutritious! Packed with protein and delicious.
Recipe for 4 servings
100 g oats
2 large free range eggs
100 g cottage cheese
1 ripe banana
Pinch of baking powder
Splash of almond milk
oli for the pan ( coconut works great)
Fresh strawberries, strawberries jam, greek youghurt or soya youghurt
Add all the ingredients in a blender and mix. If the mixture is too fick add a splash of almond milk. Heat a frying pan and spread some oil. Pour big tablespoons of batter on the pan, flip after 3 minutes or when bubbles appear.
Finish up with the toppings. Easy, right?!
