My simple, nutritive & simple breaky recipes!

No doubt breakfast is the meal of the day that makes me so happy. I love food & I love to eat well and eating in the morning with my warm cashew latte brings me an incredible joy. Trying to not skip breaky, with healthy food and make it fast is not always easy but within the years, I founded some nutritive recipes that taste SO GOOD that it makes me wanna breakfast all day! 

I am gonna share with you those 2 recipes I daily cook in the morning. They’re very easy to carry to work or to eat in the car on the go. I will also give you some personal tips for the ones who eat home for week days or simply to use it in the week-end. 

Chocolate oatmeal in a jar

In my memories, oatmeal was limited to Quaker, milk and sugar. BUT, in 2017, there’s so much more options to cheer up this nutritive meal. I agree, there is so many kind that it can be hard to know which one to choose. I tried a lot of oatmeal brands and flavours and my favorite one is «Qïa» made from gluten free rolled oats, chia and more. Here is the recipe I make the night before to make sure it’s ready to go the next morning:

  • 1 Qïa Chia oatmeal portion
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder 
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar 
  • ½ cup unsweetened cashew milk 
  • 2-3 dates or few raspberries  *optional
  • 1 expresso shot

Mix all the ingredients in a mason jar and let it rest overnight in the fridge. Let the magic happen during you sleep and you have a tasty and nutritive breakfast the next morning.  
*You can also double or triple the preparation for more than one morning. You can easily store it in the fridge for 2 or 3 days. 

 

 

Green smoothie (That dosen't tastes green)

My second breakfast recipe is a smoothie, but not a random one! You can make it in 2 minutes and definitely keep you feeling full. After years of practice (LOL), here are the best ingredients : 

  • ½ cup of water
  • ½ banana
  • ½ avocado
  • 5 pineapple cubes 
  • 1 tbsp of white chia
  • 1 tbsp of flax seeds
  • 1 handful spinach portion 
  • 3 tbsp Lactose free plain greek yogourt 

*You can also double or triple the preparation for more than one morning. You can easily store it in the fridge for 2 or 3 days.

Blend all the ingredients together and there you go! 

*When I know I won’t have time to eat a snack between my meals, I add vanilla protein powder. 

2 healthy and wise morning choices

When I eat my breakfast at home, I always choose nutritive and tasty ingredients. I recently discovered the cocoa & coconut Qi’a cereals, and I totally love it! It’s nutritive and poor in sugar, perfect for the ones who only eat cereals in the morning. 

If you feel more like a slice of bread in the morning, you probably are like me and feel a bit lost with the endless brand choices. Every brand pretend they have THE healthy bread for your mornings but be aware that most of the time, they hide a lot of sugar or salt amount so you better read the nutritional values. If you want to save time, you can trust me and choose a bread made from spelt flour. This kind of flour is high in protein and fiber while being low in fat and sugar. It’s an excellent choice of bread for your morning toasties with a delicious taste.  

I hope I gave you some breakfast ideas & inspire you to try out some of my favorite ingredients and brands. Keep in mind that you don’t need to eat perfectly, but to cook with ingredients you like. Be wild and don’t be scared to taste new flavours & way to cook! 

I’m already on my way to prepare my smoothie. See you soon Unicorns☺.
