Aug – Family Breakfast Ideas

We are still in August but to be honest it feels more like September with the colder temperatures and rain we have been having. Below you will find my ‘week of breakfasts’ video which I created from our weekly breakfast meal plan.

We decide on 5 breakfasts for Monday to Friday and repeat those throughout the month. This way I find we eat more variety (yes more!) and we are prepared for breakfast in the morning. Meal planning also helps a lot with budgeting and meal planning and has helped us stick within our budget and even save money from it too.

Click the video below to watch our week of breakfasts in August, I hope you find some ideas for your own family:

Monday – Peanut butter bagels with bananas

Tuesday – French toast sticks with berry topping

Wednesday – Granola and yogurt bowls with fresh fruit

Thursday – Omlette with spinach and cheese

Friday – Granola with almond milk and fruit

With Love

Carrot Cake Overnight Oats

My kids absolutely love a warm breakfast when the weather is getting colder and it doesn’t really take that much longer to prepare, especially if you soak and prepare all the ingredients overnight!  I love to serve mine with a nutritious super-foods smoothie packed with greens or berries! 😉

We’ve been lucky to have a sunny spell the last few days but its been a bit cold and wet the last few weeks and its definitely felt like Autumn was well on her way!  I welcome with open arms of course because I absolutely love Autumn and everything that comes along with this beautiful season! 🙂

Try this recipe and variations for a warming breakfast that will fill you right up until lunchtime.

Carrot Cake Overnight Cakes_pin

Ingredients

1 cup of Porridge Oats

1 Cup of Quinoa Flakes

1 tbsp of Cinnamon (or quantity to taste)

1 Tbsp of Mixed Seeds

1 Finely Grated Carrot

Handful of Raisins (optional)

Chopped Walnuts (optional)

Almond Milk to cover and more to cook

I added all of the ingredients to a large bowl or other container, pour in enough milk to cover the mixture and stir.

Leave the mixture in a bowl in the fridge overnight and pop in a pan in the morning, add in some further milk or water to cook through and serve with maple syrup or honey and some additional chopped fruit if you desire.

I’ve added in a link to some quinoa flakes from Amazon if you can’t find them in your local shops.  They can be tricky to find at times.

Green Smoothie Matcha Bowl

Approx calories: 335

I made an awesome green smoothie bowl this morning with several superfoods such as Green Matcha, Cacao Nibs and a sprinkle of Goji berries.  These foods are positively awesome and I felt so much energy after eating this bowl of colourful foods this morning.  I’ve provided some info at the bottom of this post about these superfoods and where you can purchase them.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, you can mix it up a bit with the greens and different plant milks etc.  Any questions drop me a line 😀

Ingredients:

2 Bananas

2 Tbsp of Coconut Yoghurt

A handful of spinach leaves

1 Tsp of Matcha

Almond milk – just enough to create a soup like consistency

Goji Berries

Cacao Nibs (Raw chocolate pieces)

Chia Seeds

Sliced fruit of choice

greensmoothiebowl

Blend all of the ingredients together adding the almond milk in slowly so you create a soup like texture.  Sprinkle the Goji berries, Cacao Nibs and Chia seeds on the top and add some sliced fruit of choice.  Enjoy!

Goji Berries

Goji berries come in dried format in this part of the world and they are packed full of nutrients.  You can actually also grow the plants yourself if your feeling adventurous.  Check out the link below for further information:

You can buy Goji berries in most supermarkets, I personally buy this brand as it is organic and you tend to get more for your money if you buy in bulk!  You can click on the image to order. Pipkin 100% Raw Organic Goji Berries 500g, All-Natural Non-GMO Large Whole Sun Dried Tibetan Plateau Wolfberry, Certified by The Soil Association, Vegan and Vegetarian Friendly, Gluten Free

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are fairly easy to come by these days in most supermarkets and I even purchased some from Lidl recently which is a discount supermarket.  If you want to buy them in bulk I personally use this brand, they are of excellent quality.

Matcha Powder

Matcha powder is one of my favourite superfoods and is apparently one of the most powerful antioxidants on the planet.  It is thought that 1 serving of matcha tea is equivalent to 10 cups of green tea.

This needs to be purchased in high quality for best results, I have personally bought this brand in the past and it is really high quality and I would recommend it.

This is a really high quality matcha and is very expensive for the size of the tin but you really do get what you pay for when it comes to matcha, and this goes for green tea also.  This one is actually very reasonably priced for the size, I have paid much more for this brand before.

Love and green smoothies!
