Breakfast challenge – week 6

This is a bitter – sweet week as this is the last week of the challenge. As much fun as it was, t’s time to move on, which doesn’t mean going back to having porridge for breakfast every morning. I don’t think I would be able to do this ever again. I have come up with 41 different breakfasts! Impressive, even if I say so myself. And to think…

Breakfast challenge – week 5

Week five… I am a little proud of myself for going this far, I have to say. I’ve never knew there are so many possibilities that open up as soon as I step out of the box.

Here are the stars of this week:

  • Coconut milk yogurt with baked figs and toasted almonds
  • Raw bread with humus and tempeh
  • Egg fried millet
  • Quinoa porridge with cooked apples
  • Rice porridge with coconut milk, vanilla and strawberries
  • Chickpea…

Breakfast challenge – week 4

Week four and still going strong. Interestingly I am having more and more ideas so rather than counting down the days to finish I am actually adding more and more options to my breakfast menu.

I am just looking through my list from this week and trying to decide on the favourite. And hands down it needs to be the hot water oats topped with a fried egg, tomatoes and…

Breakfast challenge – week 3

This is now getting really interesting and difficult. I still have some “easy wins” planned – easy breakfasts that I sometimes eat anyway but I am quickly running out of my options. I have a list of “planned breakfasts” and I am now around no 25 and really don’t know where I am going to find an inspiration to find another 5-7 different ideas.

Encouraged by my success with egg…

Breakfast challenge – week 2

Week two was exciting. I run out of all the easy choices (and my rolled oats) so had to look for some new ideas and recipes. Like with most of the meals it is challenging to eat vegetarian and diary free diet, AND avoiding wheat as well. I am happy to report that it is completely manageable, but I do admit it requires planning and some cooking. Most cooking…

Breakfast challenge – week 1

So I have managed to eat a different breakfast for a week now:) It actually is a lot of fun and it pushes my creativity.

You all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and sets us up nicely for the whole day. Yet, most of the time we are all guilty of eating the same thing every day, maybe with a slight variation at the…

Breakfast challenge

So I woke up last week, got ready and went to my kitchen to make breakfast. I took out my oats and nuts, looked at them and wept. I realize there was no way I could have the same breakfast again. And so the challenge was born – eat a different breakfast every single day and that doesn’t mean adding different toppings to my oats.

The first couple of days…

Best time to start…

… is now. It is my third blog and it still feels exciting. The very first one, I started 10 years ago, when I first arrived in the UK. It was very personal and a way to keep friends and family updated. It still exist, but I don’t post there anymore.

My second blog, ChilledOnions, I started in 2013, around the time I was seriously evaluating my options. I kind…
