Do you eat breakfast daily? By breakfast, we do not mean a cup of coffee and a toast, but a filling, nutritious morning meal.
If your answer is ‘No’ or ‘Not always,’ consider that the morning meal is often regarded as the most important part of your daily intake and may influence your food habits. You can read more about it here.
In 2000, the Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA) launched a Farmhouse Breakfast Week ‘to highlight the importance of breakfast’ and acknowledge the work of several growers producing breakfast staples.
‘The campaign serves a dual purpose. First, it showcases the variety of breakfast produce grown across the country. Secondly, it encourages everyone to get ready for their day with a hearty meal.’ (Farmhouse Breakfast Week)
So, why don’t we start the year switching to healthy habits and use this week as a perfect opportunity to do it? Here are five healthy breakfast ideas to fuel your day.
1. Farm-Fresh Omelette🍳
Use locally sourced eggs, vibrant veggies, and a sprinkle of farm-fresh herbs. A protein-packed delight to kick off your day with energy and flavour.
2. Hearty Avocado Toast 🥑
Spread creamy avocado on wholegrain toast and top it with sliced tomatoes, a dash of olive oil, and a sprinkle of seeds. A delicious blend of healthy fats and fibre.
3. Greek Yogurt Parfait 🍇
Layer Greek yogurt with seasonal fruits, granola, and a drizzle of honey. Packed with probiotics, vitamins, and antioxidants, this parfait is as good for your taste buds as it is for your health.
4. Quinoa Breakfast Bowl 🍲
Swap oats for quinoa! Cook quinoa with your favourite plant-based milk, add nuts, berries, and a hint of cinnamon. A nutrient-rich alternative for a hearty morning bowl.
5. Farmhouse Smoothie 🍓
Blend together fresh berries, a banana, a handful of spinach, and a dollop of Greek yogurt. A refreshing smoothie loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
Let's savour the flavours of the farm and nourish our bodies with these wholesome breakfast ideas during Farmhouse Breakfast Week, and beyond! 🌞🌿
