friendbananabreakfast2 A close up shot of my coconut oil fried banana + cinnamon apple breakfast.  It was amazing! I whipped this up in a jiffy as I had a really busy day yesterday and just wanted something sweet to quickly enjoy.  This breakfast recipe works great as a snack (how I ate it yesterday) and can easily be doubled or tripled to please the whole family. I used gluten free oats, no sugar or dairy.  The sweetness comes from the banana and I added poms for that added crunch! This dish really reminds me of the beginning of the year. My sister, Dena, lived in our flat at the beginning of the year and most mornings we would enjoy breakfast like this, talk about our goals and then go our separate ways to get on with our busy day. Needless to say this dish really symbolizes a calm place and a sense of relaxation - something I really need!

chia1 A few weeks I told you about the Benefits of Chia Seeds - today I used Salba Chia Seeds - so this week I think it is best I tell you how to make a delicious Cacao Chia Pudding? Did I mention it is good for you, easy to make, and leaves no mess in kitchen? Ya, I bet I have your attention now.  We all love chocolate so there is not excuse here... this recipe is a must and can be eaten for breakfast or as a snack.  Either way it is delicious..

overnightoats2 Hello all, and happy day! I have curated a blog post dedicated to my favourite meal of the day, and I have even included a new Overnight Oat recipe!  Breakfast! Seriously, we all need breakfast, and there are so many reasons why! There is no reason why we should not be eating breakfast, but there is certainly no good excuse as to why you are still having cereal! Generic store bought cereals are filled with unnecessary sugars, additives and are overly processed! So since I understand the need for quick and easy meals to help you get in that important meal I have decided to show you all five of my favourite breakfasts that take little time, some prep, and are delicious! Lets start with these overnight oats- photo above.
wafflean3 Hey all! Hope everyone is well... and if you were not then I know you are now because waffles make everyone happy! I do not know if it has something to do with Shrek, and Donkey and the fact that they literally turnt up WAFFLES IN THE MORNING, or if they just remind us of our child hood.  Just looking at waffles really brings me peace, I know it is not possible to fall in love with food, but the emotions and feelings that food bring me are enough to tell me that there is certainly a connection between my youth, and waffles.... even if they were the store bough toaster ones.
matcha1 Hey all!! Hope everyone is well. I am back with another really quick and simple nutritious recipe for all of you to try! Super great paired with an overnight oat jar, or enjoyed on its own. What are overnight oats you ask? Well overnight oats are super easy to prepare; you simply add around 1/2 a cup of oats to a jar with around 1 cup of water or plant based milk and a tbsp of your sweetener of choice and stir it around! I also like too add flax seeds, and hemp seeds to get in my fibre and extra plant-based protein. I let it sit in the fridge overnight and I eat it in the morning! The smartest way to go about making this is by making it right before bed, and you can make loads so you and your family can enjoy, just stick to the half-and-half ratio and you are sure to succeed! I really enjoy making breakfasts like these because they are super simple, raw, and delicious.  Involves next-to-no-effort, and you can amp up with extra nutrition by simply adding your choice of fruit- berries are awesome with this! I assembled the bowl by layering the oats between dollops of Chia Pudding, raspberries and banana, YUM!
