Easy everyday food // My go-to super simple breakfast
Hi lovelies, I am stopping by to share another post in my “Easy everyday food” series, where I share some of my go-to easy meals that I usually find too simple to share here on the blog. It is these kinds of meals that usually ends up saving the day when I am stressed, tired and strapped for time, so I hope you might find some inspiration in them for those kind of days as well ❤︎
First I want to share my easy little morning routine. I always try to start the day with a big glass of water as well as a cup of warm water with lemon juice, lemon slices, ginger slices and a little bit of raw honey. It is the perfect way to start the day as it helps you re-hydrate, which is incredibly important for your health as your body becomes dehydrated while you sleep and dehydration has such a negative impact on your body and health. Drinking water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach also helps flush out toxins and it can furthermore help stimulate bowel movements as well promoting a regular morning toilet visit ;)
I have written much more about lemon water and it’s benefits right here!
I have recently become really fond of eating organic brown rice cakes topped with peanut butter, banana slices, a drizzle of raw honey and a pinch of cinnamon, it is so delicious, healthy and super easy to put together when I am in a hurry. Sometimes I have a handfuld of fresh berries or grapes as well on the side, it all depends on what I have in my fridge.
My obsession with this breakfast combo started a while back when I received a package from Urtekram with organic chia rice cakes and organic chia butter spread (as well as a whole bunch of other goodies) – I of course had to try the two products together and I have been hooked ever since! I am especially fond of their peanut butter with chia seeds, it is incredibly flavorful (some peanut butters are a bit meh flavorwise) and you already know how much I love chia seeds in everything ;)
After posting this spread on snapchat some of you have asked me for recommendations on rice cake brands, I don’t really know much about it to be honest, but I really enjoy the ones from Urtekram and Clearspring organic brown rice cakes without added salt as well, they are cheap and quite thin, which is perfect since I am all about the toppings anyways. I usually just go for the organic brands and I prefer the ones without added salt as well. I hope this helps :)
