Five easy plant based breakfast ideas
1. Classic Oatmeal
Oats are packed with iron, fibre and protein. In fact, 1 cup of oatmeal provides 11 grams of protein and a whopping 19% of your daily iron needs. Oats are also a slow release carbohydrate, which means you will stay full and energized for hours after. If you're looking for that extra protein kick, stir in one of our delicious plant protein powders. Our top pick is Prana Salted Caramel!
Tip - Pair your oats with vitamin rich fruits like kiwi, strawberries and orange. Consuming iron rich foods with vitamin C enhances your iron absorption!
2. Avocado Toast
Whole grain toast topped with creamy avocado, you can't beat it! Avocado is a monounsaturated omega 3 fat. The benefits of Omega 3's are endless - they decrease rick factors for cardiovascular disease, cancer and dementia, assist with neurological development and cognitive function and help to lower inflammation in the body. Plus, because fat takes longer to make it's way through our digestive tract, it leaves us feeling fuller for longer (just fill up on the right kind).
Tip - Top your avo toast with hemp seeds, flaxseeds or chia seeds to really pump up your omega 3 intake!
3. Green Smoothie
We are busy, there's no doubt about it. Often cooking a delicious recipe from scratch with a million ingredients, bowls and pans is not realistic. We tend to opt for the easy way out, which usually means processed, harmful and nutritionally poor food choices.
A green smoothie for breakfast can ensure you get your days worth of goodness all in one cup. Pack in fibre, mineral and vitamin rich rich greens like kale and spinach, banana, flaxseed, your choice of plant milk along with Nutra Organics Clean Greens powder.
Tip - To make a more filling and carb dense smoothie, try adding 1/2 cup oatmeal!
4. Protein Pancakes
Just because you're aiming to be healthy, doesn't mean you need to miss out on favourites like pancakes drizzled with syrup! Check our one our favourite no fuss pancake recipes;
5. Chia Pudding
Chia seeds provide a massive amount of nutrients, fibre, protein and contain omega 3 fats to make your skin glow. Paired with a plant based milk, natural granola, pumpkin seeds and fruit, you have a mouth watering dessert for breakfast.
