Berry Orange Protein Muffins

I’ve come to accept that (for the most part) ain’t nobody got time to make eggs in the morning. What other high protein breakfast options are there? Greek yogurt…this is great but it can get old. Okay…chia seed pudding? Also great but unless it’s smothered in nuts, it’s not really too high in protein. Eggs? Oh wait, we’re too busy for eggs.

The Battle of the Milks

The interest in non-dairy milks has sky rocketed. This is for a variety of reasons. Choosing the best milk or plant-based milk can be challenging, with the wide variety of options on the market. While all types of milk are equivalent when it comes to calcium and vitamin D, let me help you compare their nutritional content and outline their respective controversies.

Overnight Chocolate Chia Pudding

Overnight chia puddings offer a hearty breakfast with optimal convenience. Try this delicious chocolate version! Chia seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and calcium – this recipe offers a total of 507 mg of calcium, which is 50% of your daily value if you are a female or male between the ages of 19 and 50. I like to enjoy my chia seed puddings for breakfast in my backyard while catching up on news and social media happenings 🙂

Barley Lentil Apple Salad

A omnivore-approved!! My boyfriend (who enjoys both meat and vegetarian meals) states that this salad is a favourite of his – not only for it’s delicious taste but for how hearty it is! Let’s give thanks to the satiating power of a few nutrient-rich vegetarian ingredients – lentils, barley, almonds, apples and leafy greens! I love how simple and easy this is to make. A summer must-try!

Super Seed Smoothie Bowl

A smoothie is a typical breakfast for me. However sometimes I find that I need a small mid-morning snack to tie me over until lunch, after a breakfast smoothie. If you are finding a smoothie doesn’t quite tie you over until lunch, you definitely should try out this smoothie bowl – a smoothie with a hearty kick! The addition of nuts and seeds add fibre, fat and PROTEIN to your typical smoothie. The smoothie itself is thicker than your typical smoothie that you’d drink through a straw. It’s also vegan and gluten-free. Give it a try!
