For the Savour Kilkenny Food Festival I wanted to concentrate on the very easy breakfast recipes that can be made quickly the night before or in the morning. I will follow on from this with some nice warm winter breakfast as I know many prefer a warm bowl in the winter mornings.
Bang for your Buck
So called because of the great nutrition you get from Buckwheat and all the extras you can add to this recipe.
Ingredients: Serves 2
Buck & Yogurt (Natural, Greek or Soy)
More digestible and the nutrients are more easily available and absorbed. Saves time too! This is a new recipe and I am loving it !
Ingredients: Serves 2 - 3
Chia Flax Pud
Chia seeds - a complete protein and great source of Omega 3. Takes 5 mins to whip up before bed and off you go in the morning.
Ingredients: Serves 2
Mix everything together - make sure and give it a good stir so the seeds are well mixed. Refrigerate in a sealed jar.
To serve I generally add a teaspoon of Camu or Maca (but not essential), add fresh fruit, seeds, nut butter - really up to your what you like to add. This will last for 2 days in the fridge.
Super Green to Go
Ingredients: Serves 1
Place all the ingredients in your blender or Nutri bullet - whizz it for a few minutes to get it nice and smooth.
Top Tip to avoid the afternoon slump - this is a wee gem to add to you daily habits.
Hard working little seeds that are energizing, filling and great for digestion. Soaking they begin to sprout and makes their nutrients more ‘bioavailable’.
Simple & ready to go:
450ml / 2 cups water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Optional: ½ tablespoon maple syrup
Give the ingredients a really good stir with a fork so the seeds mix well. When you see the seeds starting to float your boost is ready. I'll put up some photos of this over the next few days.
Store in airtight jar in the fridge for up to a week.
Similar to this you can make a great filling drink using the Sylliflor mentioned earlier and mix it into water and drink in the afternoon.
Any questions on any of the recipes just add a comment below.
