Send your loved ones off with a good start to the day
On most working days, breakfast can be rather rushed and stressful—more a chore than a pleasure. But a good breakfast can boost your energy levels, set the mood for a successful day, and give you that extra bit of quality time with your family in the morning.
There are plenty of options to change up you breakfast routine and introduce new choices that are healthy and not very time-consuming to prepare. Think of cute fruit platters, refreshing juices, a packed bread basket with a selection of spreads. And of course, there are many tasty ways to change up your pancake recipe.
If you are looking for yet more inspiration, or you’re planning something different for the weekend to come, below are some of our favorite recipes for a varied breakfast. Whatever you choose, we wish you a good morning and happy cooking!
Those who hate getting out of bed or find it hard to stomach anything early in the day will gain energy from an invigorating smoothie. Simply chuck all ingredients into a blender, whizz for a couple of minutes, and ready! Packed full of healthy fruits and veggies, smoothies are something wholesome for the entire family.
Porridge is versatile, and so quick and easy to make. Simply heat up milk or water, stir in the oats, soak, and garnish. And what’s best—you can make a big pot and then dish it out all at once so that everyone can enjoy breakfast together. Instead of ordinary rolled oats, try millet or spelt variations, and different types of milk, like almond and oat milk. Sweeten to preference with fruit, honey, or other natural syrups.
