As I generally avoid coffee, I need something else to give me a morning boost. My ideal morning routine is yoga, a “power breakfast” and tea (earl grey, matcha, green tea with mint, or lemongrass & cinnamon).
And I don't necessarily eat my breakfast early in the morning. Breakfast is literally the meal you break your fast with, so it's your first meal of the day. This is why it's the most important meal. If you find you're not very hungry in the morning, a smoothie is a great way to start your day.
Here are some of my Power Breakfasts guaranteed to give me an energy boost.
Berry & Banana Bowl
3 tbsp oats, 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1 banana, 1 tbsp dried goji berries, 1 tbsp dried mulberries, 1 tsp peanut butter, 200 ml unsweetened almond milk.
Cocoa & Banana Bowl
3 tbsp oats, 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1 banana, 1 tbsp pure cocoa powder, 200 ml unsweetened almond milk.
2 eggs, 1 banana, 3 tsp coconut oil (for frying), 1 tbsp cocoa powder.
1 banana, half an apple, a bit of spinach (fresh or frozen) a handful red berries (fresh or frozen), a splash of water.
How do you start your day off right?
