healthy living

This is a delicious new recipe that serves as a healthy snack but also as a hack for your ordinary apple crumble. It’s dairy, vegan, and gluten free, but the best part is that it’s really easy to make. I tried this when I was craving a midnight snack, so here it is;

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 tsp any liquid sweetener (agave syrup/ honey for a non vegan option)
  • 1/2tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 2tbsp granola (you can find a recipe here)

STEPS

  1. Dice the apple, mix in the syrup and cinnamon in a mug.
  2. Microwave it for 3-4 mins or until the apples turn soft.
  3. Add in the almond milk and top with granola.

This was a quick one, hope you try it out and thank you for reading! Like and follow for more easy and healthy recipes, xoxo.

#1. Avocado Toast

I’m sure you’ve seen this meal a few times on instagram and from health influencers and that’s because it’s a quick and wholesome option, providing essential healthy fats, protein and carbs. I find this one to be a great pre-workout meal as well and the method is pretty straightforward so here’s what you need.

INGREDIENTS

  • Gluten Free bread (or any healthy alternative of choice)
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 2 Eggs/ turkey slices/ salmon
  • S+P / chilli flakes

#2. Healthy Pancakes

You might think healthy pancakes can’t be real but they are. After making this recipe a couple of times, regular pancakes just don’t do it for me anymore. These ones are gluten, dairy and sugar free and they contain healthy fats, complex carbs and protein. Here’s the recipe. You can make them high protein if you’s like.

#3. Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie Bowls have been the trend of healthy breakfasts right along with avocado toast, as they should be. You can basically fit any fruit and even some vegetables into a smoothie bowl, plus it’s a great alternative to simply drinking a smoothie and you get your serving of micronutrients in. This is also a great vegan option; my latest addiction has been coffee smoothie bowls but you can make any variation you’s like.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2-1 cup Frozen banana chunks
  • 1/2 cup Frozen fruit (berries/mango/pineapple)
  • 3-4 tbsp plant-based milk
  • Nut/seeds (chia, pumkin, cacao nibs, almond butter)

Hopefully these have given you some new inspiration for your breakfasts and let me know what your go to breakfast is. Thank you so much for reading, please follow and like for more, xoxo.
