Breakfast is the number one meal to help you breeze the day everyday but sometimes we get in a brekkie rut and end up eating the same old stuff day after day. So this autumn we’re mixing it up by sharing some creative inspo recipes to bring back the love for the meal that sets your day off just right.
We’ve mixed up savoury and sweet with healthy and indulgent, because we like life being a teensy bit naughty and a whole lot nice!
1. Pancakes with Caramel Sauce and Fresh Berries
HERO INGREDIENT: Shredded coconut
Shredded coconut is high in fibre, vitamin E and polyphenols, and is packed with iron and potassium. Because coconut contains lauric acid – the saturated fatty acid that doesn’t get stored in the body – and research findings suggest coconut lowers low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, the bad cholesterol, then a little bit of coconut everyday is beneficial to the body.
2. Peach Almond Cooler
HERO INGREDIENT: Peaches
3. Kale Frittata
Sometime it’s not the sweet spot you want to hit, it’s savoury all the way. And this eggy veggie delight is sure to please.
HERO INGREDIENT: Kale
Kale really is all that! As one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, you’ll want to incorporate kale in every meal. It’s super high in vitamin C to help you maintain that youthful glow. Research shows it being linked to lowering cholesterol, plus the antioxidants – quercetin and kaempferol – are beneficial to health cell renewal and reversing free radical damage. It also contains lots of your daily average of nutrients in just one handful – from vitamin K: 684% of your daily average, to 6% of your magnesium daily average, and everything in between, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, calcium, copper and potassium.
4. Apple and Cinnamon Porridge
When the cooler weather hits then porridge is always the answer. We love ours drizzled with maple syrup topped with Almond Breeze (obvs!), how do you like yours?
HERO INGREDIENT: Apple
Apples are in season (WOOP!) and what a way to celebrate both autumn and apples than with this sweet treat to start a busy day? Apples are contained vital the antioxidants flavanoids as well as phytonutrients. Like peaches, apples are high in dietary fibre. Add these ingredients together and you’re going to aid in good gut health, plus reduce risk of inflammation diseases such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes and heart disease.
5. Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins
There’s nothing quite like muffins fresh out of the oven to work up an appetite and these banana oatmeal brekkie muffins are heavenly. Perfect to devour at home or to take to morning tea,
HERO INGREDIENT: Banana
It’s likely that bananas are a star ingredient in your life already and it makes perfect sense! They’re loaded with fibre to keep you regular, slow down digestion and are great for the heart. Plus bananas are packed with vitamins and minerals that keep your bod running like a mean, lean fighting machine. These include calcium, potassium, iron, manganese, magnesium, folate, niacin, riboflavin, and B6. It really is the food all-rounder!
