Breakfast

Green Smoothie

This is my favourite way to start the day! Usually I am in a rush in the morning and this only takes 2 minutes to whip up and put in a flask to take with me so it is perfect. It is low carb and it gives you a good dose of greens and the vitamins and minerals your body needs to kickstart the day (and Omega 3 & 6 if you use hemp milk!). If you are working out late morning or in the afternoon add 30g wholegrain oats for an energy boost.

Ingredients:

300ml unsweetened almond / hemp milk

50g frozen spinach

50g frozen blueberries

1 scoop Vanilla WPI

10 almonds

Method:

Simply pop all ingredients in a blender and blend. Add ice if preferred.

 

Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats take 2 minutes to prepare the night before & can be grabbed straight out of the fridge in the morning & taken with you to work, or can be popped in the microwave for a minute or so if you want a warm breakfast.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup unsweetened almond / hemp milk
1/3 cup oats

Toppings:
Dried fruit / Fresh Fruit / Nuts / Seeds / Nut Butter / Protein Powder / Cacao Powder

Method

Mix all the ingredients together and leave in the fridge overnight. If the mixture is too thick in the morning add a spoonful of yogurt or a dash of milk and mix through until it reaches a consistency you like.

My favourite ways to have overnight oats are either to add a small handful of dried cranberries or half a scoop of chocolate protein or cacao powder. The flavours from dried fruit infuse into the oats better than fresh fruit so if you have a sweet tooth in the morning it's a perfect substitute for a sugary cereal.
