I’d fallen into a bit of a breakfast rut, so I thought if I shared my week of breakfasts, it would give me motivation to try some different things.
I was inspired by Lil’ Miss Fitness Freak to return to my zoats (or zucchini oats) for breakfast. Topped with a teaspoon of no added sugar blueberry jam and a drizzle of Carnation light condensed milk it felt very decadent!
On Tuesday I wanted something a little different, so I used the persimmon I had in the fridge to make a protein hot chocolate – I think I like the persimmon better than the banana, it’s not so overpowering. I removed the flesh from the hard skin, and at that separately, which gave me something to chew – definitley increases satiety!
Wednesday’s breakfast was inspired by KERF. I wanted to try sunflower butter, (sugar free blueberry) jam and egg on a roll, but I avoid bread. I decided to break this rule because everyone was saying how good it was! I chose a granary roll from our local Real Food Store so I knew it had been properly made and not mass produced.
On Thursday I returned to oats, but this time I made banana oats with cottage cheese (my milk had turned sour) and topped with more jam. You can see my herbal tea, and vitamin tablet on the side 🙂 As it was a fairly small bowl of porridge, I crumbled a little bit of homemade oat cookie on the top – yum!
On Friday I had porridge again, but this time I had Bench Pressed Oats. I’ve been wanting to share these with you for a couple of weeks now, I won’t say much but I have a review and a recipe coming up!
And what did I buy at the Farmers’ Market this week?
I thought this might be my last trip to the Farmers’ Market this year, so I stocked up on some squashes. We have: uchiki kuri, delicata, harlequin, crown prince. I also bought a couple of parsnips, and some kale. I acutally bought two bags of kale – one curly, and I think the other is hunger gap kale. I gave half away to my boss after he was telling me about making kale chips in the microwave – I’ve previously used my dehydrator. Bless him, I don’t think he really wanted it but was far to polite to say anything – hope he enjoys it!
