The best breakfast in the world


The best thing about early mornings is knowing that you're going to eat something amazing.

My breakfast bowls vary depending on what fruits and nuts I have in store, but it usually runs along similar lines. Sweet and tangy fruits, and protein filled nuts. Sometimes I add fresh or frozen fruits for a zap of tartness, but recently I've been sticking to dried fruits as their earthy flavours combine so well.

Once I'm out of bed I like to firstly rehydrate. When I was living alone I normally started my day with water; however I've switched back to my warm Earl Grey mornings now that I'm back living in the Northern part of England.

And after I've had something to drink this is the breakfast I typically prepare...




Cornflakes
Cornflakes are the base of my amazing breakfast bowl. They're filling and have added vitamins and minerals (and they don't have overt amounts of sugar and salt). I also love branflakes but I don't have them too frequently as I don't like to over-fibre my body!

Oats
Porridge is typically ranked as the healthiest breakfast in the world and I love oats, even in my cold breakfast bowls. Oats are even more filling than cornflakes and have a deliciously rich and luxurious texture. They are wholegrains, and eating them can help lower cholesterol if you eat more than 3g daily.

Blended almonds
I like to then shake on a few teaspoons of home-blended almonds, adding to the richness of my breakfast bowl. Almonds are full of healthy fats which are good for your heart, and they are also a great source of fibre and protein (which is always good if you aren't a meat-eater).

Cinnamon

A sprinkle of ground cinnamon adds a touch of magical Christmassy spice to all of my mornings! I read that cinnamon has been frequently used in Chinese herbal medicines and it isn't surprising considering that it is full of antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties (improving gut health).



Extra bits
The toppings vary day by day but I usually have most of the following:
- Pecan nuts: their healthy fats help lower the risk of heart disease
- Dried apricots: high in potassium (potassium helps reduce the risk of overall mortality) and boosts skin health
- Crystallised ginger: relieves indigestion and nausea
- Dried papaya and pineapple: they're sugary but I believe that restrictive fad diets are unhealthy; dried fruits like dried pineapple also help reduce the risk of developing Age Related Macular Degeneration which is the biggest cause of sight-loss in older adults
- Tahini: full of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals

Milk of choice
I vary my milk, most times opting for vegan options. As I did this morning I most typically use almond milk.
