This is the perfect pick-me-up for breakfast, morning tea or afternoon tea! The banana and coffee gives you a great energy boost. You also receive a good dose of protein from the protein powder to keep you feeling full for longer. The cinnamon will help stabilise your blood sugar levels and the chia seeds and greek yoghurt give you a nice healthy serve of good fats.

Cafe-Style Breakfast

smashed avocado and poached eggs on toast

I absolutely love eating breakfast out at different cafes. I think breakfast foods are the tastiest! Having them cooked for you and served with a lovely flat white is such an indulgent way to start the weekend. It’s hard to not have a bad day after a start like that; however, I often think, ‘I could easily recreate something like this at home for a quarter of the price’. If you’re like me and have found yourself thinking the same thing, here’s a recipe I created

3 Sides For Your Bacon and Eggs

2015-07-09T12:00:38+00:00 9 July 2015|Categories: EAT|Tags: , , , , |

My hubby and I love our tradition of bacon and eggs every weekend. It’s such a satisfying filling breakfast. We usually have our bacon and eggs with one of these sides, plus sometimes a green smoothie. These sides are way more nutrient-packed than a slice of bread and a lot tastier too!

Side 1) Kale torn into small pieces, sliced mushrooms and cherry tomatoes sautéed for 5 minutes over medium heat in butter. Top with himalayan salt.

homemade healthy granola

Every healthy foodie has got their signature way of doing homemade granola, so I thought it was about time I shared mine! I love to eat granola with Greek yoghurt and either a grated apple, sliced banana or berries. I tend to find it’s not as filling as having eggs for breakfast but it’s a nice change when you feel like something different, and fantastic to bring when going on holidays where you won’t have the facilities to make a cooked breakfast.

proats

If you still haven’t heard of ‘proats’, let me fill you in. Basically, proats are where you combine oats with protein powder and an endless combination of other delicious and nutrient-packed goodies. Instead of cooking your oats like you would in making porridge, you just soak them in the fridge for at least an hour, or overnight, hence the name! There’s
