3 HEALTHY BREAKFAST IDEAS - Summer 2016

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hello everyone, I hope you're enjoying the hot summer we are getting right now :-) It has been so nice that it's inspired me to try a few new breakfast ideas. These are nice to eat on a summers morning and really refreshing, I would even have them as snacks too :) I love each one and so excited to share them!

First up is overnight oats;


These are amazing, I only recently tried these and i'm in love 💗 They are so refreshing to have on a warm summers morning. I wasn't sure if I would like cold oats but they are so nice and this breakfast is really easy and quick to make. You might have seen photo's of people making theres in jars, which is great if your rushing out the door in the morning, you can just grab it from the fridge and go :) I don't have any pretty little jars tho so I just made mine in a normal bowl.

To make mine;

I first added oats and then topped it up with what I fancied. I added sunflower seeds, raisins, blueberries, raspberries and unsweetened almond milk. You then simply pop it in the fridge overnight and it's ready to eat in the morning, before I ate mine I also added some Rowse Honey on top. You can add any nuts, seeds, fruit that you like. Below is another bowl I made, that one I made with strawberries and I didn't add any honey.


Next up is Protein Pancake;


This is so quick and easy to make and smells AMAZING, it smell actually reminds me of Brighton Pier Doughnuts! The good thing with this is you can have it hot or cold, protein pancakes can also be a great snack or if your rushing out in the morning. Just make the pancake the night before and stick in the fridge. Take it out in the morning, put it in some tupperware and add your choice of toppings.

To make mine;

All I do is add some oats in a bowl which I don't measure out, I would guess it would be around 30g. Then I add some of my protein powder, one scoop which is about 25g. I use my vanilla whey and I think thats why it smells so much like doughnuts :) You can get 15% off protein whey with my code: CCXX15 just click here to pick your flavour, you can use my code for anything on the website, they have great deals and i've used My Protein for years, definitely reccommend! :-)
I then just add some unsweetened almond milk and stir until I get the right consistency. I add coconut oil to the pan and fry it for maybe 3-5 minutes on each side, I don't time it but it doesn't take very long. Did you know how many ways you can actually use coconut oil, see the post here if you missed it.
Anyway you can then add the toppings of your choice. I always like peanut butter with mine, one day I added some honey and then I always put some fruit with it depending what I have in the fridge at the time. Below is another photo of one I made.


The final breakfast is Healthy Cereal; 


I actually just made this one today and OMG, I LOVE IT! I use to love cereal years ago, back in the day before I became healthier, it was all I use to eat for breakfast. Most cereals do have a lot of added ingredients and sugar that isn't great for you so it's better to make your own and it's actually so easy to do.

To make mine;

I broke one weetabix into small chunks, it's 100% wholegrain, high in fibre and low in sugar, salt and fat. I then added some of my homemade granola, you can see my blog post here on how I made it, I sometimes look back to remind myself :-)
Below is a picture of my current batch of granola I have, it's great to make a batch so you add add it here and there when you like and it lasts ages!
I also added some raisins to my bowl, sunflower seeds and I went for raspberries as these were the only fruit I have in the fridge at the moment. I bet this would taste great with banana's, added honey, strawberries or even small small bits of dark chocolate..not all together..but as different options, you can add whatever you fancy. I can't wait to make this again and try it with different things, i'm definitely adding dark chocolate and strawberries soon! Oh and then to finish off you add milk on top, obviously :-)

  1. I always whizz up a green smoothie for breakfast, I include kale, cucumber, celery, protein powder, ice, almond milk and a tiny bit of xantham gum to make it thicker so it feels more like a meal than a drink- SO good!
