Healthy breakfast to kickstart your morning

healthy breakfast

What is healthy breakfast? I know that a lot of people have made it their New Year’s resolution to lead healthier lifestyles. I also know that keeping that promise can be difficult. A healthier you is a happier you. What I mean by that is that is that you have decide for yourself what a healthy life is. What do you like eating?

I like a healthy breakfast. Healthy breakfast to me is a balanced start of the day. I want to fuel my body with what gives me energy and lasts until lunch. Because if I don’t that’s when I make really unhealthy choices. Like a little chocolate bar or a little candy to keep my energy levels up. Then I’ll crash a little later. Now, this is of course not doing my body any favours in any area.

This will affect my mood more than anything else. You know the t-shirt, “I’m sorry for what I said when I was hungry.” That’s me! I’m not a nice person when I’m hungry.

I started to cut some dairy products out of my life during this past year. One reason is that I really love the Swedish company Oatly and their products. Since I tried their barista “milk” I can’t drink anything else. Another is that my stomach feels a lot more balanced since cutting out some dairy products.

I know I should eat healthy breakfast every day, however, I’m also not that hungry in the morning. Because I have the luxury of working at home I can eat a little later. I also know that this is not the case for a lot of people. Therefore all of these recipes are created with that in mind. You can easily prepare it the night before and then to take with you in the morning. Wherever you need to go in the morning.

Of course, you can use dairy products if you like.

Today I’m sharing three of my favourite recipes to make your mornings easier and healthier.

Tip: Put fruits and nuts in a different container and assemble it at work.
