If you’re familiar with the JSHealth philosophy, you’ll know that I’m a big believer in quick, easy and delicious meals that provide a balanced form of nourishment. I also believe that what we eat in the morning sets out tone for the day, which is why it’s important to eat a balanced, nutritious breakfast. Here are some of my favourite options for a morning meal.
Protein Power Smoothie
This is such a protein-rich breakfast option and it combines healthy fats and fibre which will energise you all morning. I love it topped with crushed nuts, seeds or my sugar-free granola. Find the smoothie recipe here.
Gut-loving Green Breakfast Bowl
This dish provides a hit of antioxidants, protein and healthy fats to jump-start your day. Mix and match your toppings – the combinations are endless! Find the recipe here.
Protein Chia Oats
On the stovetop, bring 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup milk of choice to boil, then add 1/3 cup oats and 1-2 tbsp chia seeds. Reduce the heat and simmer until the oats are cooked. To serve, add a handful of raw nuts, fresh berries and a sprinkle of cinnamon. You can also turn this into overnight oats by soaking the oats and chia seeds the night before and leaving it in the fridge to set overnight.
In a saucepan over medium heat, sauté 1 cup of mixed greens in olive oil until they’re slightly wilted. Plate the greens with add two eggs (poached, fried or soft-boiled), 1/4 of an avocado and a sprinkle of almonds. Enjoy with a slice of my signature gluten-free bread or 1/2 cup roasted sweet potato.
Combine 150-200g of Greek yoghurt with 1/2 cup JSHealth sugar-free granola, 1/2 cup of berries, 1 tbsp chia seeds and 1 tsp ground cinnamon.
Include 2 organic eggs or 1 egg with 2 egg whites for your protein hit, and throw in a handful of seasonal greens such as spinach and zucchini. Top your omelette with 1/4 avocado, along with 1 slice of my signature gluten-free bread or a wholesome alternative.
