QUICK & EASY BREAKFASTS

This year I am going to listen to my followers and write blog posts that have been requested. Recently it's come to my attention that some of you want to know what sort of food I eat in a day, so to start off the What I Eat In A Day blogs I thought there is no better place to begin than with Breakfast.

My breakfasts very much depend on how much time I have in the morning. If I am rushing out the door to the office, I will either prepare my breakfasts, have something quick or that I can eat at my desk or where ever I may be heading off to.



B R E A K F A S T 

Let's start with my absolutely no time, I am a whirlwind and usually running out of the door kinda breakfasts.

S M O O T H I E S

It's a fail-safe breakfast on the go and I very much chuck whatever I have in my freezer, fridge or fruit bowl into the blender and hope for the best. I do have some absolute favourite flavour combinations that I tend to go back to because one I love the taste and two they always fill me up.


Option 1: P R O T E I N  B E R R I E S

1 Banana
1/2 Cup Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup Frozen Raspberries
1tsp MyProtein Organic Maca Powder
1tsp MyProtein Organic Maqui Berry Powder 
1/2 Scoop of Vegan MyProtein Blend Chocolate Smooth Flavour
1 Cup of Plant-based Yoghurt - I love any Coconut ones
1/2 Cup of Coconut Milk











Option 2: B E R R Y  O A T S

1 Cup of Mixed Frozen Berries
1/2 Cup of Organic Spinach
1 Banana
1/2 Cup of MyProtein Rolled Oats
1 Heaped Teaspoon of MyProtein Organic Maca Powder 
1/2 Cup of Water
1/2 Cup of Dairy Free Milk - I love Coconut based ones


Option 3: O V E R  N I G H T  O A T S

2 Large Scoops of MyProtein Rolled Oats 
Handfull of Blueberries
1/2 Cup Almond Milk
1/2 Cup Water
1tsp of MyProtein Organic Coconut Sugar 
1tsp MyProtein Organic Maca Powder

- Prepare this just before you go to sleep, cover and leave in the fridge. When you wake in the morning get it out of the fridge and topped with a chopped banana. If you're really stuck for time, put it all in a container that you can take away with you.

- Also if you don't fancy this cold and have more time to spare, try heating it up on the hob and try adding a drizzle of MyProtein Organic Agave Syrup.


Option 4: G R A N O L A  B O W L

Yoghurt of your choice - I always love a Vegan yoghurt
Homemade Granola (which has been pre-made) See Recipe Below
1/2 Sliced Mango
Handful of Blueberries
Drizzle with MyProtein Organic Agave Syrup 



H O M E M A D E  G R A N O L A 

I N G E D I E N T S 

Flax
Pumpkin
Brown Linseed
Golden Linseed
Whole Nuts - roughly chopped:
Hazel Nuts
Spices:
Ginger
Nutmeg
Cinnamon 
1tbsp Olive Oil

With this recipe, you don’t really need to measure the ingredients, just chuck it all in a mixing bowl and give it a good stir. Making sure the granola is well mixed and completely coated in all the delicious spices. 

Once the mix is complete, it’s time to spread the mixture out onto a baking tray. We ended up using two trays for this mix because we made so much. Gently roast the granola on a low heat between 80 - 100 degrees should be sufficient for about 10-15 minutes. Regular checking the mixture and tossing it so every last oat and nut turns into a beautiful autumnal golden brown. Regular checking and roasting on a low heat for longer will avoid burning. 

As soon as the granola is completely golden (not burnt) remove from the oven and leave to cool. 

Once cooled chuck it in a glass jar and you’re done! 

It’s a great snack by itself, so why not chuck some in a pot to snack on whilst at work.
