5 Healthy Breakfast Recipes

Good Morning from the breakfast table! A long lazy weekend feast or a quickie before you rush out and seize the day. Breakfast really sets you up for the day. I have to admit I’m not a big breakfast eater unless I’m in a hotel or later in the day,  so it has to taste good and it has to be nutritious.
With kids in school I’m obsessed with giving them a healthy start as I have no idea what they will be eating during the day.
Below are a few of my favorite breakfast recipes. They work equally well for a long lazy weekend feast as a quick breakfast on the go (with some prep).


My first tip because the kids love it is SPROUTED & DEHYDRATED GRANOLA. Gluten and nut free and vegan. A refreshing start to the day! You’ll find the recipe here (click!)

Raw Vegan Raspberry and Vanilla Yoghurt

20141228171044(1)

Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
This raw vegan yoghurt recipe is totally yum!
It needs a bit of preparation as you have to soak your nuts and then the mixture needs to ferment overnight, but I promise you it’s all worth it!
Now I’m off to help Santa with his purchases in The Chelsea FC Megastore.
I love it that my 8 year old still believes in Father Christmas and his little helpers and I’m more than happy to get him all that he wants, like the soft bearded Diego Costa (a player in Chelsea) so not yum… but I like that it’s not all tech on his list.

Raw Choco Smoothie Bowl

20141003202118(2)

As I did the school run this morning some beautiful red and orange leaves dropped down on my head reminding me that even though it’s warm and a long time until I have to get out the cashmere, autumn is here.
I have to say I love it!
Autumn in London is gentle and gorgeous, and soon it’s Halloween which is so much fun in my neighbourhood!
This weeks recipe is a chocolate smoothie bowl full of goodness and beautifying avocado and acai powder.
Great as a filling breakfast or healthy pudding.
It’s also perfect for hiding avocado from picky eaters!
Hope you like it!

Breakfast: Nut-Free Overnight Strawberry Bircher (vegan)

20140615193100(2)

There’s nothing better than to start the day with something super delicious and filling that is also hugely healthy!
My morning are always frantic with trying to get the kids ready for school and this bircher works really well for time-strapped mornings, as I just mix it all together the night before, put it in the fridge and dish out in the morning.
(Bish bash bosh! And it gives me time to shower/brush my hair, yay!)
This bircher is nut-free as one of my kids, together with so many others nowadays, are allergic to certain nuts, and because I use sunflower seeds it’s still crunchy and lovely.
I hope you like it!
