As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but some of us don’t bother with it. How you start your day can determine how the rest of your day is going to go, so start it well! Below are some very exciting breakfast ideas, a far cry from a bowl of corn flakes and a lot more nutritious and healthy than a plain old slice of toast! These breakfast creations will have you hopping out of bed in the morning and will even get you motivated to try out a few breakfast experiments of your own!
Porridge with a twist
Porridge is a fantastic low GI breakfast option, that will keep you going right through the morning, and will keep your blood sugar good and stable. But let’s be honest is a little on the boring side when eaten plain! There is any number of amazing things that can be done and amazing ingredients that can be used to jazz up this healthy breakfast. Firstly make an addition when cooking the porridge, add berries, apples, cinnamon or gojis to the raw oats and milk of your choice, almond or coconut give a yum flavour! Then once cooked top in the prettiest fashion with seeds, nuts, chia, gojis, dried fruit, fresh fruit, berries, whatever! Check out our inspiring creations below….And take a look at breakfast_inspo and fooducationirel on Instagram for some amazing ideas!
