If you have been following me for a while, you are probably very well aware of my love for food. Starting the day with a delicious breakfast is very important to me, it sets my mood and intentions for the day.
This week I wanted to share with you some of my favourite breakfasts. I’ve outlined below what my week of breakfasts can look like. Although, it is always changing for me. I go from eating the same thing every day to changing my breakfast on a daily basis too. If I’m loving a particular food I’ll eat it loads, but sometimes all I want is a bit of variety. Usually, I go for a healthier, easier but filling option during the week, anything that doesn’t involve cooking and I can eat on the go (pre-lockdown). During the weekends, I tend to have cooked breakfasts, eggs or pancakes are my go-to options.
I love this one, it is so quick and easy to do in the morning, it takes me about a grand total of 3 minutes (if that!). Which is why is my most popular choice when going into the office. For this one all you’ll need:
- Yoghurt of choice – I used the
- Granola or muesli
- Fruit of choice, I like to use berries or banana.
- Fruit jam (optional)
- Coconut milk (optional)
I like to layer my yoghurt and only mixing it as I’m eating. So I start with the jam, either store-bought or blend frozen berries, a splash of coconut milk and honey together. Then add the yoghurt, followed by some granola or muesli. Lastly, add your fruit on top and you are good to go. If you’re not adding fruit or jam I advice adding a bit of honey in-between the yoghurt and the granola.
Chia Seed Puddin
This is one I have been trying for a while, it’s quite simple once you get the right measurements and consistency. You’ll need:
- 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
- Coconut milk
- A teaspoon of honey
- Peanut butter
Start by putting your seeds in a container and cover them in milk, mix well with honey. Then set overnight or longer. For flavour, I added a spoonful of peanut butter and chopped banana. You can also add jam, berries or any other flavour combinations.
For days I’m not as hungry I’ll make a quick tropical smoothie at home with:
- 2 bananas
- A handful of tropical fruit mix
- Coconut Milk
Blend it all and enjoy!
My absolute favourite. Would honestly eat this every day if I wasn’t so lazy. You’ll need:
- Sliced bread toasted
- 1 or half an avocado
- Chilli flakes
- Pinch of salt
- A teaspoon of olive oil
- Black pepper
- Egg (optional)
I mash my avocado with some chilli flakes, salt, olive oil, black pepper and lemon. I then spread it on toast, if I’ve got the time or it is the weekend I fry or poach an egg and add it on top. My best tip for avocado toast is to always add lemon and don’t mash it too much, leave some chunks in (don’t know why but it does make it better).
If it’s looking gloomy out there you’ll find me eating a big old bowl of porridge. It just makes me feel so cosy… I can’t explain it. You’ll need:
- Milk of choice
- Peanut butter
I cook my porridge in oat milk and a bit of water, with a teaspoon of honey. I then add some peanut butter and banana on top.
This is one of my latest favourite discoveries to make at home. It is so simple but so, so tasty. I use:
- Chilli sauce (optional)
I mash the avocado’s as explained above and fry the chorizo until cooked. I then remove the chorizo from the pan and fry the eggs in the same oil (for extra tastiness). Lastly layer the avocado, chorizo and eggs with a touch of chilli sauce, wrap them up and grill for a couple of minutes.
I hope this has inspired your next breakfast! Let me know in the comments below what are your go-to breakfast ideas.
