I am at home for the holidays and am enjoying the slow mornings and late breakfasts here at my mom’s house. One of these grey and gloomy mornings, I got up and felt like having a warm and indulgent breakfast, so I gathered a few ingredients and whipped up this gooey warm and creamy porridge.
It’s been a while since I published the last recipe for energy bites/bliss balls on this blog and I figured gingerbread flavor would be appropriate right now. These bites are packed with protein and perfect for a pre- or post-workout snack, or an afternoon bite with a cup of coffee.
If you’re still looking for a breakfast for Christmas, I have the perfect suggestion for you. These gingerbread pancakes are based on the first gingerbread pancake recipe I posted, but I topped them off with some fried cinnamon apples & pieces of gingerbread. They taste like Christmas on a plate! 🙂
This post is a little summary of what I eat on a weekend day at home. I don’t like spending most of my time in the kitchen, so everything is super simple & easy to make! Generally, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so I put the most effort into it. 🙂 Lunch & dinner on the weekends are usually salads or veggies.
When it comes to cooking, I’m lazy. If there is any way to avoid a pile of dishes to clean up after, I will choose it. So naturally, I gravitate towards one-dish meals and shortcuts like this mugcake. You can whip it up in one mug and eat it straight out of there!
If you are anything like me, you could eat oats every morning without getting tired of them. I don’t even need much variation – I am just looking forward to my chocolate oats from the moment I wake up.
As soon as the leaves start falling and the air is getting crisp, I start looking forward to pumpkin soup, mulled wine & gingerbread and cuddled up mornings with warm oatmeal in bed. Good thing I have the perfect recipe for that. 🙂
When first going vegan, it might be hard to find yummy and healthy vegan options for lunch at work or school, especially if you’re not privileged to have a big variety of options. I felt the same way again when I decided to go gluten-free for a few weeks, so meal prepping for work became a weekly ritual.
Sooo….pancakes. 🙂 If you have been following me on Instagram, you have had the pleasure of enjoying my pancake spam in the past few weeks. I basically use every free morning I get to make pancakes and have tried different variations every time!
Yup, this is basically a mini cake for one. Or baked oatmeal in a mug. Whatever you want to see it as, mugcakes are the perfect dessert or afternoon snack – easy and quick to make and super indulgent!
