My favourite meal of the day is breakfast, after 12 hours of no food my tummy is ready for a good meal. We can often get very stuck in our ways with breakfast even with the huge range of options that are available. In store you’ll find all sorts of delicious goodies to tempt your taste buds and help inspire you to create a nourishing breakfast.
Top your favourite muesli (I like the Ceres Organics and Little Bird ranges) with Sujon blackcurrant powder, chia seeds, Lifefoods raw cacao powder, toasted coconut chips, a dollop of Raglan Coconut yogurt and Ceres coco-almond butter. These are also all great mixed into a smoothie.
Toast toppers – I like Dovedale Rice Chia or Breadman rye bread with Chantal unhulled tahini or Pic’s Almond butter and banana. For a savoury option I love Urban Hippie misomite with avocado.
I often make a bircher muesli by combining wholegrain oats or an alternative such as Lotus rice flakes or Ceres quinoa flakes with whole almonds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, goji berries, cinnamon and coconut flakes and soaking them overnight in water or your favourite milk. In the morning you can add your favourite fruit or toppings such as half a grated apple or yoghurt. For a warm breakfast add a little extra milk and heat gently for a creamy porridge.
Another interesting product on the shelves is Ceres steel cut oats, they take slightly longer to cook than rolled oats but create a beautiful nutty porridge. You can even soak them overnight to speed up the cooking process.
For a fabulous savoury breakfast try loads of fresh greens like kale, silverbeet and spinach steamed with ginger and garlic and topped with a poached egg or scrambled tofu.
With so many more options in store you will never be short of inspiration come breakfast time.
