I am on a sustainable living journey, trying to cut back waste as much as I can. With this comes a lot more homemade items and bulk buying food.
I came across a recipe to create your own coconut yoghurt and thought why not give it a go.
It is so easy, full of probiotics, is way cheaper and tastes better than the store bought alternative. So why wouldn't you make it yourself?!
A tip that I came across was to make sure your probiotic capsule only has 'probiotics' in it and not "prebiotics' as the pre can make the coconut milk go mouldy which isn't what we want. We want it to ferment with good bacteria.
How good are pancakes?
I saw Rachael Finch on Instagram add greens powder to her pancake mixture to make them colourful for her kids. I thought this was genius!
I decided to try the same with my own pancake recipe, and it worked a treat. The girls think they are great because they are green, little do they know they are full of goodness #mumwin.
There are so many powders and supplements on the market that I think we have forgotten a bit about the humble fruit and vegge.
When this thought came to me I decided to muck around with a little wellness shot to take each morning to help me get enough fruit and veggie in my day, because let's be real, some days are better than others when it comes to what I eat.
I love playing around with different combos and I found this to be a winner, plus it is full of the goodness.
Smoothies are my go to breakfast when I don't know what to have or don't have the time to prepare anything else. You chuck everything into your blender, and there you have it, a nutritious tasty brekkie.
The thing to make sure you have in your smoothies is healthy fats and protein to help keep you fuller for longer. And this one has a good dose of antioxidants with the berries.
Smoothie bowls are the best! They are colourful, healthy and filling. Plus you can get creative and turn it into a piece of art.
I cam across this smoothie bowl idea a few months ago and it is my go to when I feel like one for breakfast or lunch. I was a bit uncertain about how peanut butter would go with acai, but it works.
I have made little tweaks to the recipe to make it my own.
I love overnight oats, they are so simple, healthy and as a mum of two, it is a brekkie I can make the night before. Win win!
Oats are so good for you, they are full of fibre, can help lower bad cholesterol, control blood pressure and keep you feeling fuller for longer. And that is just the benefits of the oats, not to mention the benefits of the nuts and seeds you can add to your overnight oats.
So needless to say, overnight oats are a great healthy breakfast option that even kids love.
This is definitely one of my favourite breakfasts, and like most things is usually full of refined sugar and white bread, so I have done a healthy twist on this classic breakfast dish.
You can get creative with your toppings or you can go the old favourites of strawberries and maple syrup like I have here.
I love my bread maker and last week I put a bit of this and that into it to make my own version of a fruit loaf. Store bought fruit loaf is full of sugar and definitely isn't the ideal breakfast item, so I made a healthy version with no refined sugar what so ever.
