I don’t know about you, but breakfast is definitely my favourite meal of the day! With so many delicious options to choose from, I’ve narrowed it down to my top 3 breakfasts which I tend to have on repeat during the week. On weekends I like to enjoy slower more indulgent breakfasts, liked pancake stacks, baked oats or avocado toast or shakshuka.
One of my favourite breakfasts, especially on a cold winter morning, is a big bowl of warming porridge. It’s cosy, filling and one of the healthiest ways to start your day.
Protein: My top tip for getting it super thick and creamy is to use a scoop of protein powder! I alternate between chocolate and vanilla protein depending on my mood that morning!
2. Smoothie Bowl
Smoothies are a great way to hit your five-a-day, sneak in loads of vitamins and antioxidants, and kickstart your morning with a mega dose of nutrition. I’m definitely more or a smoothie-in-a-bowl type of person and I’m all about the toppings!
Protein: As with my porridge, I love adding a scoop of protein powder as it thickens the shake while adding a healthy boost of protein and nutrients!
I’ve written a whole Smoothie Cheat Sheet where I share all my favourite hacks, so give that a read!

3. Eli’s Granola
If I’m looking for a super speedy (yet obviously delicious) breakfast my go-to is a bowl of this Peanut Butter Granola with some dairy-free yoghurt and a handful of fresh berries – quick, nutritious and minimal washing up!
This is also great as a topping over either of the breakfasts above (porridge/smoothie) as it adds a delicious crunch!
