Breakfast has got to be my favourite meal of the day! While smoothies are my go-to because they’re quick and easy to blend up, I also love toast, yoghurt bowls and a few other things in the morning.
These are my six favourite foods to eat at breakfast (plus how you can use them in a tasty morning meal). Enjoy!
Six foods that are great in breakfasts
#1: Almond butter
You’re already familiar with my love of almond butter, right? Thought so! Almond butter is delicious on toast (especially when topped with banana and chia seeds – yum!), blended into smoothies (try it with banana and raw cacao), dolloped into smoothie bowls or smothered onto slices of green apple.
You simply can’t go wrong with yoghurt in the morning. Yoghurt is a great base for any creamy smoothie (is there any combination better than honey, banana, yoghurt and nuts?), and is also delicious in a simple yoghurt bowl with summer berries or chopped fruit. For some cool ways to jazz up your yoghurt, read this.
Banana is the ultimate breakfast fruit, am I right? The soft, sweet fruit is fantastic in yoghurt bowls, smoothies and smoothie bowls. I also enjoy it sliced into a warm bowl of oatmeal drizzled with raw honey and chopped with chia seeds. If you’re using banana in a smoothie, try freezing the fruit before adding it to your blender for a lovely chilled morning drink.
#4: Raw honey
Who doesn’t love honey? Whether stirred into a cup of tea, blended into a smoothie, swirled into yoghurt or oatmeal, or spread onto toast, honey is one of my favourite morning foods! I just take care not to overdo it because as you know, although a natural sweetener it’s still loaded with sugar. I stick to one tablespoon per day.
Blueberries are little nutritional powerhouses! Packed with antioxidants, they’re delicious on their own, as a toast topper, blended into a yoghurt smoothie or in a yoghurt bowl. I love both fresh and frozen blueberries for snacking and blending!
High in protein, nuts are filling and tasty – perfect for starting the day! I love all kind of nuts, but in the mornings I most enjoy almonds and walnuts. They’re great blended into a creamy smoothie or mixed into a bowl of yoghurt and fruit for a great crunch. I also enjoy nuts in the form of nut butters and nut milks at breakfast. Yum!
