A tasty, protein-packed breakfast you will want to make every day!

Home, My life, Breakfast


When I shared my post about the vegan savoury breakfast sandwich, a lot of people asked me to share my favourite sweet breakfast too. I sometimes vary in what I'm craving, but lately, I have been making some vegan protein oats with blueberries, chia seeds, and either oats or some sugar-free granola or cereal. One of my favourite granolas is Lizzy's granola. This granola is high in fibre, vegan-friendly and very low in sugars. I usually buy it from Asda or Tesco, but I'm almost certain that Morrisons also sells it.

If you don't want to waste time in the morning making breakfasts, then overnight protein oats might be the best option for you. What I usually do is mix 1 tablespoon of oats with 1 scoop of protein powder. I also add some cinnamon, and chia seeds. Chia seeds are a super seed! They give you a massive amount of nutrients for very few calories. But most important is the fibre content. Just one serving of chia seeds comes with over 10 grams of dietary fibre. They also contain a decent amount of zinc, vitamin B3, potassium, vitamin B1 and vitamin B2. Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants and they are high in quality protein. Not to mention, of course, the omega-3 fatty acids. Once you mix all dry ingredients, then add some plant milk (I usually go for almond) and mix in any fruit you want: bananas, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries...literally anything you want.

I have recently been testing out a new protein powder concept and incorporating it in my daily meals, including breakfast. I will make a separate post reviewing the brand and flavours I tried so far, so stay tuned for that post, which will be live very soon.

I hope you enjoyed these tips and that you try some of these yummy breakfasts. Let me know if you make any of these recipes.

Simply,

Mariana
