It’s all to easy to get stuck in a rut with breakfasts and it deserves a little love and attention being the most important meal of the day. Whilst you sleep your body carries out myriad detoxification and organising processes; your liver works steadily to filter toxins and assimilate nutrients and your brain is sorting through all the information you’ve gathered during the day, so by morning you are very much in need of an energy boost!
Liven up your breakfast options with these tasty ideas, all of which have gluten, egg and dairy free options:
Fresh Vegetable Juices
A concentrated way to get easy to digest nutrients, juices are ideal for breakfast. Try apple, spinach and parsley; carrot orange and ginger or beetroot, apple and mint for a zingy start to your day!
Great for when you’re short of time or can’t face food. Blend fruit, dairy or non-dairy milk and ground seeds for a filling fruity drink.
Whisk together 2-3 tablespoons buckwheat flour with 1 egg (or egg replacer) and 3 tablespoons dairy or non-dairy milk to make a batter mixture (add more or less milk as needed). Heat 1/2 a teaspoon of coconut oil or butter in a skillet. Add spoonfuls of the mixture to form small blinis and cook until golden brown. Enjoy with yoghurt and fresh blueberries.
Debs Morning Millety Glow
This recipe for a gluten-free Ready Brek alternative is from a culinary-inspiring client; gently cook 2-3 tablespoons of millet flakes in water or non-dairy milk. Add dessicated coconut, a teaspoon of cacao powder and a drizzle of agave nectar to taste. Delicious!
Spread oatcakes, rice cakes or gluten-free toast with a nut butter of your choice; almond, cashew, hazel, brazil nut or plain peanut butter. Top with sliced avocado and raspberries.
