Today I want to share with you my quick breakfast ideas. This is the one meal in my family that during school months has to happen against the clock.
We always start the day with a smoothie. I prefer to use fruit and veggies that are in season.
I use the large container from NutriBullet which yields just enough for my three kids.
The base is always a banana and cucumber to which I add whatever fruit I have in the house: papaya, pineapple, watermelon, strawberries, grapes, apples. Everything goes. I top it up with water.
As for the food, here is what goes on rotation:
On Saturday, during my food prep time, I make a jar of chia gel. 1 part chia seeds to 3 parts water, mixed in a jar with lid. It keeps in the fridge for a week.
With a fork, mash a ripe banana until it becomes creamy.
Mix with chia gel and serve with or without slivered almonds.
1 part oats to 2 parts water. Boil until creamy. Mix in chia seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, seeds or nuts.
Yogurt and chia
Mix chia gel with natural plain greek yogurt.
Sprinkle seeds, nuts or dried fruits.
Warm corn cakes with butter
Buy sugar-free corn cakes.
Put butter on top.
Toast and avocado
Mash a ripe avocado.
Place avocado on top.
On the weekends I get more creative and embrace lengthier preparations and make eggs or more elaborate dishes.
In the week though, the principle of daily life rests on the question that changed my entire life:
“How would this look like if it were easy?”
So this is how breakfast looks like for me when it is easy. How about you?
