Mango and raspberry yogurt with musli and seeds! Happy Breakfast
Some healthy food inspo for today!
Breakfast – Oatmeal with a small spoon of honey + apple and cinnamon. Top with some pecan nuts. Very easy to prepare and keeps you alert for quite some time.
Lunch – Salad with whatever you find available in the fridge and cupboard
I like to add cashew nuts, dried cranberries, avocado, beets and sweet potato cubes.
Drizzle some lemon olive oil on top and sprinkle some sea salt to add flavor.
Try to mix and match from these different options, one day this and one day that, so that it doesn’t become boring and you end up going back to the sugary cereals or a quick cheesy toast.
Choosing a healthy portion by mixing for example greek yogurt with mixed seeds and some banana slices, or a slice of salmon on a wholemeal bread will keep you on the right track for the rest of the day. Ok sure, eating a nice croissant in the morning with your coffee will probably come off during the day if you move around, but it sort of sets the tone for the entire day and I know, personally, that I feel slightly guilty on days when that happens. So, I try to be good and actually I tend to continue on the same healthy track when I start with a better breakfast.
This will give you a good mix of proteins, carbs and good fat.
Slice of salmon, almonds, eggs, greek yogurt, banana, fresh berries, oats/porridge, slice of wholemeal bread, avocado, mixed seeds (sunflower, pumpkin etc), coconut butter, grapefruit.
Whenever you have some extra time in the morning, maybe during the weekends, try a smoothie with berries, fruit, small amount of oats and add some almond milk.
I know that salmon sounds a bit much for breakfast but since I really love smoked salmon it’s really no big deal, and more than anything; it’s the best thing you can do for your hair and skin, especially together with avocado. It’s loaded with omega-3 fatty acids vitamin B-12 and iron which support scalp health and keeps it nice and shiny.
