Yay for summery long weekends!! 3 whole days of perfect weather. And we spent it inside painting our lounge. But it was perfect painting weather – we could have all the doors and windows open and there was a little breeze so it doesn’t smell like the inside of a paint can. Phew. So clearly as a result of the spending the entire weekend painting, I have no actual new recipes for you so I thought I would share my favourite breakfast in the world, the one that I eat every single day in summer pluuuus sometimes for lunch. It’s that good. It’s all you need for a bit of breakfast inspiration. Greek yoghurt, honey & granola breakfast bowls with all sorts of extra goodies….it’s the only way to start the day!
Ask anyone I work with…I get kinda mad when people don’t eat breakfast. I just think it’s so important to start the day with a food in your belly. Which might just be because I get mad if I don’t eat breakfast, but actual hangry mad so I assume other people must too. Ask my husband, 30 minutes is about all I have before the hangry takes effect. So lucky for everyone, I make time to get a good breakfast bowl in my belly before I go anywhere. And this is the breakfast that makes getting out of bed worth it!
At any time of year I will have homemade granola of some description lying around. It’s a bit of an obsession. But at this time of year I stick with the regular version and dress it up in the form of super fancy breakfast bowls.
Start with Greek yoghurt. I like the plain unsweetened version and then sometimes I’ll even add a bit of vanilla extract and honey to make it super special. Next up is all the summer fruit. Peaches, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple. Pretty, healthy and so delicious. Finally the granola and extras like coconut flakes, slivered almonds and chia seeds because we are so healthy. Omg, I could actually eat this for every meal. Also, does anyone else eat their weight in blueberries at this time of year? I can’t stop.
And add a drizzle of honey for good measure.
You will want to make time for breakfast if you have all the ingredients for this amazing breakfast bowl around. It only takes a few minutes to put together and is worth getting up a little earlier. You can even skip the bowl, put everything in a jar and take it on the run.
Either way, once you start getting involved in these bowls, you’ll thank me for it. Trust me.
Happy breakfast eating!
