Berry Breakfast Ideas

20:21

We all know and have probably grown up to our parents telling us that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I couldn't agree more. But what about those days where we're in a rush and don't have time to stand around and make ourselves a nice toast and a hot cup of tea. Well, I have you sorted. These breakfast ideas are so easy to prepare and can be done the night before and kept in the fridge. What's better than waking up and finding your breakfast ready to eat? And to make things even better, they're also healthy too! No more rushing around and shoving a chocolate bar or biscuits into your mouths during your morning rush.

I want to sort out my diet and start "Clean Eating" because everyone who knows me knows that I love my food and I eat almost anything. I have so many "Clean Eating meal ideas, that I've decided to slowly start incorporating these meals into my daily life and of course I decided to start off with breakfast, as breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Whilst searching for different "Clean Eating" meal ideas, I came across something which to be honest I never really knew about. It was something quite small but it was that, to ensure a healthy metabolism, breakfast should be eaten within the first hour after awakening, so of course this made me want to jump out of bed as soon as soon and get my breakfast in my belly.



These recipes all contain different berries. Not only do berries taste absolutely delicious but the health benefits behind berries are absolutely amazing. It wasn't until I started researching into healthy foods and recipes that I came across benefits of these berries, one of the many being that it slows down the aging process. Who doesn't want to look and feel younger for longer? 

So before diving into the recipes, let me share with you what I've learnt about these berries

Strawberries:- bursting with fiber and lots of Vitamin C. It may help to regulate your bloods sugar levels
Raspberries:- like strawberries are bursting with Vitamin C and also antioxidants.
Blueberries:- these help to protect your skin from premature aging, they also reduce the risk of urine infection and it also helps improve your vision 

I'm sure that's enough information to get you to want to eat more berries.

Without further ado, I give you my first Breakfast Recipe:

Granola, Greek Yogurt and Berries
Ingredients
1 cup of Greek Yogurt
1/2 a cup of Granola
1 handful of sliced Strawberries
1 handful of Raspberries
1 handful of Blueberries
1 teaspoon honey for added sweetness (optional)

Method
The method is pretty straight forward, in your bowl or mason jar, throw all your ingredients in and tadaa. You're sorted. It's quick, easy, and very tasty. It is also very very filling. 


Very Berry Overnight Oats 

As a child I was that person that absolutely did not like porridge of any sort. Until recently when I came across this recipe to help kick-start my journey into "clean eating". Overnight oats has got to be my most recent favorite breakfast. I saw different recipes for this over on Pinterest and made my own little concoction. And as the title states overnight oats, it is prepped and stored the night before in the fridge. Once again, it is easy, yet tasty and very filling.

Ingredients
1 cup of Rolled Oats
1 cup of unsweetened Almond Milk 
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon of Chia Seeds
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 cup sliced raspberries
A handful of blueberries

Method
In your mason jar, add the Oats, Milk, Greek Yogurt, Chia Seeds and honey. 
Give it a good stir.
 The berries can be added in now or on the morning of when you want to eat it.
 And there we have it. A Very Berry Breakfast. 

And the best thing about Overnight Oats, you can use whatever flavoring you want. Switch up the berries with cocoa powder and peanut butter, or whatever you wish. It's so flexible, yet so easy and tastes absolutely delicious. It can be heated up or eaten cold, it is totally your choice. 


And last but not least, I give you my Triple Berry Smoothie. Totally healthy and yet so tasty at the same time. 

Triple Berry Smoothie

cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 cup Greek Yogurt
1 teaspoon honey
1 cup sliced strawberries
