I won’t lie, I eat with my eyes almost as much as I eat with my actual mouth. If it looks pretty I bet it tastes even better. I’m not the best at eating breakfast because I’m silly and would much rather have an extra fifteen minutes in bed or spend a bit longer trying to figure what to wear or struggling to do my eyeliner. I know it’s really bad and means you’re starving at about 10 am and end up gorging on half a palette of mars bars but one day maybe I’ll be one of those organised people that will have completed their spinning class, drank a pint of wheatgrass juice and spruced up the place with a spring clean. For my Blogtober day six I thought I’d share with you one of my healthier breakfast ideas, when I do have the time and fancy something a bit healthier I love making a little pretty smoothie bowl. I have a major sweet tooth and this berry protein bowl is so simple and one of my favourites. It’s so easy to do and to be honest the bit that takes the longest is the prepping of the fruit and presenting it in a nice way. If you weren’t planning on showing off to your Instagram pals with this one then skip the last step cos who really cares what it’ll look like!?
To make this small bowl I put a frozen banana, some coconut milk, a handful of oats, a handful of raspberries and strawberries and some ice into a blender, blending it until smooth. I’ve been vegetarian for almost a year now and find myself feeling quite tired and lethargic often so try and add more protein and vitamin B into my meals. I did actually add in a scoop of plain protein powder and lucuma powder for an extra hit of energy. This type of breakfast left me feeling pleasantly full and wasn’t reaching for a snack mid morning too. The best thing about this is that you can prep it in advance and store it in the freezer, or even buy pre prepared frozen bags in most supermarkets so all you’d need to do is pop it in your blender add in some sort of liquid like water, milk or alternatives, yoghurt or even cold brewed green tea.
Much love. x
