Now, let me admit somethings to you….I LOVE BREAKFAST!
It’s my favourite meal of the day, if I could I would probably have it all day. Of course, I’m always keen to try new and healthier ideas when it comes to food and breakfast was no exception.
I’ve put here my four favourite healthy breakfasts. I’ve included weekend options and cheaper options for those of you on a budget so hopefully there should be something to suit everyone.
One healthy breakfast that I’m absolutely loving at the moment is Avocado on Toast. Oh my goodness, I could talk for days on Avocado (it’s my new favourite addiction).
It’s both filling and tasty which is a major thumbs up in my books! I usually flavour mine by sprinkling some black pepper and chilli flakes over the top. However if you prefer it plain then suit yourself! If you have a bit more time in the morning you can also add a poached egg on top.
Another breakfast which I guess probably more of a weekend treat is Eggs Florentine. I first came across this beauty in Patisserie Valerie but found it can easily be replicated at home. Alls you need is some brioche bread, spinach, two eggs and hollandaise sauce. For a healthy option you could try whole meal bread instead of the brioche. To put together is pretty simple, toast your brioche, Gently boil your spinach, drain and then place on top of your brioche. Next poach two large eggs (enough so they’re still runny) and place on top of your spinach to finish smoother the whole thing in the hollandaise sauce, sprinkle a little pepper and there you go!
For easier and less costly healthy breakfast options I’ve got two classics that just can’t go wrong. First up, Old fashioned fruity porridge! You can’t beat porridge (well you actually can’t, you have to stir). To make it extra healthy instead of using cows milk I usually use almond milk which you can get for around £1 from most supermarkets. Of course, try to stay away from packet porridge and just buy a bag of oats instead. A bag usually only costs about 30p (waah?!!)
A box of Granola can be pretty cheap if you buy a supermarket’s own one, a branded one will probs be around £2 upwards. I tend to have mine with some berries, chia seeds and almond milk but that’s just my preference.
Until next time!
