Weekly Breakfast Ideas│Healthy Recipes


S o you know breakfast is important, right? Everyone agrees is the most important meal of the day. And in fact, it is true. I find myself making wiser choices for the rest of the day when I get a nutritious breakfast and I'm not starved by lunch time! But sometimes I just don't have the time to prepare a cooked meal like oatmeal or other porridge variation, so I often pack yogurt parfaits with fresh or frozen fruit or blend smoothies. I have a few recipes for you from this week and last week's breakfasts. I hope you get some ideas, and remember: don't skip breakfast! :) 


Blueberry Banana Yogurt Parfait - Serves 1

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup whole grain rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp (15 gr) goji berries
Place all in ingredients in any order and enjoy!


Kiwi Banana Granola - Serves 1

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup whole grain rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plain yogurt
  • 1 kiwi fruit
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp (15 gr) goji berries
  • 2 tbsp cranberries or any dried fruit
Arrange all ingredients in a plate and dig in! 


Chia Seed Breakfast Porridge - Serves 1

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1-2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 tbsp organic cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp (15 gr) goji berries
  • 8-10 raw almonds
In a small saucepan add water and bring to boil, add the quick cooking oats and reduce heat to low. Simmer until oats are cooked (don't worry if the consistency is too runny, it will thicken as it cools) Add vanilla and chia seeds and stir. Serve immediately and add the rest of the ingredients. 


Green Smoothie - Serves 1

Ingredients
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup fresh spinach
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 cup zucchini
  • 1 kiwi fruit
Blend almond milk and spinach first, then add strawberries, kiwi, zucchini and banana. Enjoy! You could also add 1 tbsp chia seeds or ground flaxseed for extra yumminess! 

Let me know what you think of these and do share if you will try any :)
