Healthier Alternatives to Cereal to Kick Start Your Day On the Right Foot!

Did you know that sitting down for a bowl of breakfast cereal could be just as bad as going without breakfast altogether? Research shows that eating all-carbs breakfast will create cereal cravings in the afternoon. It’s also likely to make you eat more later in the day. This is what I experience as well.

While breakfast cereal might seem like an easy go to option for it’s quick and easy…

The Six Benefits of Eating Oatmeal

I didn’t grow up eating oatmeal for breakfast, because we’re “savoury family”, and only discovered it few years ago, and instantly fell in love.

Eating a bowl of oatmeal each morning is the perfect way to start your day off right. Let me just clarify that the oatmeal discussed here is not the instant kind that comes in the different flavours- these are full of sugar. The real stuff is…

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 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…
