So, recently I've been on a massive health kick. (it will not last)
I never normally eat breakfast unless its been made/given to me. So this week I decided I wanted to make up some healthy fun dishes that would ensure I have a sufficient amount of energy throughout the day.
Breakfast in a jar!
- 1 cup of plain yogurt
- 2/4 cup of granola
- Handful of blueberries
- 9 grapes
This is relatively easy to make and tastes delicouis!
1: Get a jar or cup
2: Put half of the yogurt into the jar
3: Put the majority of the granola on top of the yogurt
4: Then put add half of the left over yogurt on top of the granola
5: Then put all of the blueberries on that
6: Then put the rest of the yogurt on top
7: Get the grapes and put them along the edge of the jar
8: Sprinkle the remaining granola into the middle of the yogurt.
9: Refrigerate over night and enjoy in the morning!
The point is to make sure the layers don't mix with each together so I suggest putting the jar in the fridge for a few minutes during the process.
- 1/2 cup of oats
- 1 cup of almond milk
- 1 handful of blueberries (About 11)
1: Put a saucepan on a low heat on the hob
2: Put the oats into the saucepan
3: Then add the milk and mix
4: Leave to simmer for a minute
5: Mix for a further 2 minutes
6: Once you are happy with the constancy put into a bowl
7: Sprinkle the blueberries onto the porridge
You can also sprinkle cinnamon on top for an extra twang.
- 4 strawberries
- A handful of raspberries ( About 7-8)
- A handful of blueberries ( About 9-11)
- Apple juice
1: Cut the strawberries in half
2: Put all the fruit into a blender
3: Add the ice
4: Add the juice
6: Put the smoothie into a glass and add a cute straw!
This smoothie is good when you just want something light but also something that will fill you up and keep you going till lunch time.
- 1/2 cup of plain fat free yogurt
- Half a peach
- Handful of blueberries (About 9)
- 1/3 cup of granola
1: Grab a bowl
2: Put the yogurt in first
3: Then cut half a peach into pieces
4: Put the peach on top of the yogurt
5: Do the same with the blueberries and granola
6: Get a spoon and eat!
This is so so simple, yet delicious. All of the different flavours and textures counteract with each other and it feels like a bomb of flavour has gone of in your mouth.
- Handful of grapes (About 9)
- 1 banana
- Half of an apple
1: Cut the banana and apple into pieces
2: Put on a plate with the grapes
Its quick, on the go and taste great. Its also good when you've not got much in and you just need to eat. You can also switch up the fruit to best suit you.
All of the recipes above are flexible, you can change the fruit/granola/yogurt as much as you like. They are also low in fat and will keep you energised!
I can't stress how important eating breakfast is for you, it helps your brain get prepared for the day and it also keeps your energy levels up!
I hope you try out these recipes and love them as much as I do!
Bye for now..J x
