Another delicious breakfast!

Standard

Every evening before I go to sleep I start thinking about what to have for breakfast.

Ever since I started really taking time to have breakfast, and putting some effort in making my breakfast taste and look delicious, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!

This morning I didn’t have anything in the fridge like overnight oats or buckwheat, so I made some yofu with granola and fruit! This week I bought some fruit i don’t eat often, so I put some of that fruit in my breakfast bowl!

Yofu combined with my homemade strawberrie granola, with blueberrie, persimmon, banana and blueberries and topped with some puffed quinoa…. And there’s my breakfast! Great start of my day I must say!

Overnight Oats – Endless Possibilities!!

Standard

Oatmeal has become increasingly popular recently.

As I am a person that never ate porridge like food when I was little, I have discovered oatmeal, buckwheat and other things lately and I love it!!

You can eat it warm, cold, with fruit or with (pea)nutbutter, whatever you like! Just put 1/3 cup of oats or buckwheat in fridge overnight with 2/3 cup of (nut)milk, or yoghurt, put a topping on and enjoy!

Some pics of what I have eaten recently:

Recipe: Buckwheat Breakfast

Standard

Yesterday’s breakfast was another winner: I made myself a buckwheat / fruit / tahini breakfast. YUM!

This breakfast I look forward to the day before, when I put the buckwheat flowers in the fridge to soak overnight in water.

Yesterday, after I brought the two eldest children to school, and I had some time for myself, I made this lovely breakfast!

I drained and rinced the soaked buckwheat and put it in the foodprocessor, together with 6 tbsp of oatmilk, pineapple, banana, a tbsp of tahini and a tbsp of maple sirup. Then I made a cream of everything and topped it off with fresh pineapple, blueberries, banana, raspberries and some cinnamon. Perfect!!

Tastes great!

The recipe: 1/2 cup of oats, 1 cup of coconut milk, 1 frozen banana (in slices) and some cinnamon. In the blender, and done!

My first poached egg!

Standard

In all the cooking shows I watch, regularly poached eggs are on the menu.

As the kids and I were up at 6.30 this sunday morning (it was my husbands turn to sleep in) I was thinking about what to make for a nice sundaymorning breakfast.

And then I thought of one of the cooking techniques I haven’t tried before; making poached eggs!

And I did it! 4 minutes in boiling water, with a little vinegar and “bob’s your uncle”! A real smooth egg, yolk exactly how I like it.

Next project: Eggs Benedict!

Breakfast – most important meal of the day!

Image

Since I have started eating consiously and healthy, a world of new ingredients, combinations and flavors has revealed itself to me!

Take mulberries for example! How delicious are those! Who needs sugar when you can have ultra-sweet mulberries! In the Netherlands mulberries are sold dried. They taste like candy!!

My breakfast today was yoghurt made of soy, with my homemade Granola, blackberries, mulberries, pommegranate seeds and chiaseeds. A soy latte to go with that and my day started of just fine!
