Our number one favourite!!
#1. The Breakfast Smoothie!
A breakfast smoothie should contain more than JUST fruit in order to create a fullness that will last you until your next meal. Fruit is incredible however it is fast digesting and usually very low in calories. Adding some more satiating and slower digesting foods such as oats, protein power, peanut butter or almond butter etc will keep your body satisfied for longer and reduce cravings later in the morning.
We love this Peach & Oat Smoothie from Minimalist Baker! Not only does it look refreshing and zesty but the addition of oats will keep you fuller for longer and the chia seeds are an excellent source of omega 3s, which are great for heart health!
This smoothie contains a healthy balance of food groups and a good variety of plant proteins!

We are also in love with these beautiful breakfast smoothies from Peaceful Dumpling (cute name right!)
Not only are these smoothies wonderfully presented.. they're also a simple combination of powerhouse ingredients! She uses superfoods such as maca and turmeric to add more variety and nutrition along side inclusion of healthy fats to make the smoothies more satisfying.

We also make oatmeal ALL THE TIME!
Making overnight oats is our favourite way to create an incredible nutritious breakfast that requires barely any prep time! Oats are a great source of zinc (great for healing and for a immune system) as well as being great support for the digestive system due to their unique fibre content.

Over the colder, darker days or rainy mornings. A nice hot oatmeal breakfast hits the spot! It takes a little more prep time, but not by much!
Oats are heated so easily on the stove and take around 10 minutes to heat and cook through. Heres a yummy, super easy recipe from Simple Vegan Blog

A few of our favourites include>>
Organic Brazil nuts!
Great breakfast addition as they contain more than your daily needs for selenium which is a powerful anti-oxidant associated with reduced risk of cancers.
Cacao Nibs! Rich in calcium and magnesium. This is a yummy way to get your fix of important nutrients.
Almond Milk by the Case! Stay stocked up with your favourite organic plant-milk at a discount price.
Our third and final favourite, easy vegan breakfast..
#3 Avocado on toast!!
This is our favourite, simple breakfast for days craving something wholesome and savoury to start the day. Of course we always use whole-grain breads, you can find out more on the importance of whole-grains HERE.
You can absolutely just wack some avocado on to some bread and chow down! However, if you're fancying some extra tasty goodness.. here's our favourite avo-toast from Simple Vegan Blog
