Ok, so here’s how things stand: I either hear my alarm at 5:15 in the morning and I can spare 10 minutes in the morning for a nourishing and complete breakfast, or I take my coffee on the go because I hit snooze one too many times. Recently, I’ve mostly had time for my 10 min breakfast, so I thought I’d share my ‘super-bowl’ recipe.
What you need:
- A nicely coloured bowl (mine is blue and reminds me of beaches and crystal clear skies)
- A spoon (no fun options there!)
- A nice pot of plain natural yoghurt
- One scoop of Protein World Slender Blender protein powder (I use the chocolate flavoured in the morning)
- One teaspoon of acai powder (packed with antioxidants)
- Dried goji berries (these are the only dried fruits I could find that didn’t contain sugar)
- One teaspoon of canah fiber powder (tastes like dirt, but you won’t feel it, and it’s great for digestion)
- One tablespoon of chia seeds (gives great texture and they are considered a super food)
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder (amazing taste and very healthy)
- 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder (makes the whole combo taste like gingerbread on a Christmas morning)
All you have to do is mix everything together with a spoon (no fancy mixer needed) and VOILÀ! you got yourself a nice breakfast super-bowl!!
The great thing about this bowl of goodness is that it provides you with everything you need first thing in the morning, from protein to fiber for around 300 kcal, as well as some unsaturated fats (the good type of fats), while giving you only 7g of sugar and 54 mg of sodium. It tastes great, you can adjust the flavour by using different types of protein powder, and it keeps me full until lunch-time, which for me is about 6 hours later.
Unlike D (lucky bastard!!!!), who has the time to actually have a warm cooked breakfast in bed every morning (later post on that), this is all I have time to get as a daily meal to start my day.
P.S: D says that I’m doing this post the wrong way as according to him, the end result pic should look better than the ingredient photos, weathers my end result looks more like a bowl of purple-puke not superfood-bowl. In spite of his opinion, I hope you’ll give it a try.
