Maca powder is known for its hormone balancing properties and is said to help increase endurance when you’re working out, so you can work up a sweat for longer. I love it because it tastes like caramel, and what better way to pair that than with waffles that taste like banana bread?! Save yourself the hefty cafe prices and whip these up in your pyjamas this weekend.
Savoury, or sweet? I debate it every damn morning. It’s like Sophie’s choice, right?! When you’re short on time, this dish is always a crowd pleaser. Utilising classic strawberry and balsamic pairing, this dish gives you a little of both savoury and sweet, do you don’t have to choose.
Every morning I have the same debate at breakfast – sweet or savoury. It’s always a tough call right? This recipe ticks the pancake box, while being all kinds of deliciously savoury. It’s a win-win.
One of my all-time favourite flavour combos, chocolate and peanut butter. These pancakes are gluten, dairy and sugar free, which means I can enjoy them a little more regularly.
One of my favourite ways to start the day, spirulina makes it into may of my smoothie bowls. This blue-green algae is extremely nutritious and acts as a powerful antioxidant. If you’re not ready to try it alone, peppermint covers up the taste perfectly!
If you’ve never tried a black sapote, you’re missing out. A relative of the persimmon fruit, they are also known as chocolate pudding fruit, and don’t disappoint! They have four times as much vitamin C than an orange – great immune boosters when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Chocolate is just what the doctor ordered.
I love to start my day with a cup of matcha green tea. Giving you a morning boost with the rollercoaster of coffee, its an awesome way to get your energy and concentration levels up. Being a little bit obsessed with all matcha-related things, I whipped up these delish greenola these bars – a great morning or 3pm pick-me-up!
Acai berries are said to be amazing for your ticker, improve weight loss, promote pretty skin, boost digestion and more. Pretty special for a tiny berry! Acai is not only hailed as a superfood for it’s antioxidant benefits, but it also makes one amazing smoothie bowl for morning when you need something quick and nourishing. Throw it all in a blender, whizz, top, done. It doesn’t get much simpler (or tastier!) than that.
Admittedly jumping on the turmeric bandwagon, golden milk is such a delish snack on its own. This is one of my favourite time-saving recipes – just double the golden milk recipe and stir in some chia seeds – BOOM. Instant nourishing brekkie for the week ahead. Healthy fast and protein from chia seeds make for an awesome start to your day. They’re also packed with fibre to keep your tummy happy too. Win win.
Just when you thought smoothie-bowls were so 2016, you get hit with this bowl-o-rama that tastes like cupcakes. Not just any cupcake, RED VELVET ones. Uh huh. It’s packed with protein for muscle recovery, along with beet powder that is said to increase endurance. The cacao (aside from being insanely delicious) is a super source of anti-oxidants and also helps you body to produce happy chemicals. What’s not to love?!
