Berry & Toasted Nut Porridge

Come rain or shine, porridge will always be my favourite go-to breakfast. Not only are oats such a versatile ingredient, they are a great source of protein and fibre that keep you fuller for longer.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of rolled oats

1 cup of dairy-free milk (hemp, almond, rice or soya)

1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1 tsp of maple syrup

toasted nuts and seeds

chopped fruit and berries

Add the oats, milk and cinnamon to a non-stick saucepan and begin to heat. Stir until the consistency thickens and it begins to bubble. Serve in a bowl and top with fresh fruit, nuts and a drizzle of maple syrup.

Tofu & Spinach Scramble on Wholewheat Toast 

Pre or post-gym, this breakfast is packed full of protein and fibre. With over 12g of plant-based protein in the tofu alone, this will give you that energy boost that you need!

Ingredients:

1/3 block of Cauldron Firm Tofu (pressed)

2 cups of spinach

1 slice of wholewheat toast

1 tsp of dairy-free spread

1 tsp of turmeric

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

1 tsp of garlic powder

1 tsp olive oil

Crumble the pressed tofu into a bowl and mix in the dry spices and seasoning. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add the tofu. Cook for 5-10 minutes until piping hot and pieces begin the brown. Add the spinach and stir through until wilted. Serve on a slice of wholemeal toast with dairy-free spread.

Green Smoothie Bowl

I don’t know about you, but somedays I wake up craving anything and everything green! I feel as if I could eat bowls of spinach or devour buckets of kale. Alas, a green smoothie bowl is a more delicious choice and one that caters to the sweet tooth also. With essential vitamins and nutrients, this smoothie bowl will leave you feeling radiant.

Ingredients:

1 ripe banana

1 cup of dairy-free milk

2 cups of spinach

1 tsp of spirulina

1 tsp of wheatgrass powder

1 tbsp of chia seeds

1 tsp of maple syrup

cacao nibs (optional)

Add all ingredient to a blender and blitz until a smooth consistency is formed. Serve in a bowl and top with cacao nibs for an extra nutritional boost.

Protein Mango & Banana Smoothie

For a more fruity start to the day, mango and banana are the perfect combo. This smoothie packs over 100% of your daily vitamin C intake as well as essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium and many healthy fats. To keep you full until lunchtime, add 3/4 of a cup of rolled oats to up your carbohydrate intake. 

Ingredients:

1 ripe banana

1/2 mango

2 tbsp of vegan protein powder (Pulsin Rice Protein)

2 tbsp of chia seeds

1 1/2 cups of dairy-free milk

Transport yourself to Sunday brunch with smashed avocado on toast. Here I serve one half with marmite as it is rich in vitamin B12 and the other with a sprinkle of sun-dried tomatoes for iron.

Ingredients:

1 ripe medium avocado

chilli and garlic flakes

salt and pepper

squeeze of lemon juice

1 wholewheat ciabatta

Optional

1 tsp of marmite

sun-dried tomatoes

Mash the avocado, chilli and garlic flakes, seasoning and squeeze of lemon juice into a bowl. Serve on wholewheat bread or a toasted ciabatta.
