As you can probably tell from the recipes on this blog, I love colorful food and experimenting with colors. This passion was fueled even more when I received the book Unicorn Food, in which Kat Odell put together healthy and colorful recipes, including her beautiful ‘unicorn milks’.
If you’re also in lockdown, and it’s winter where you are, chances are you spend a lot of weekend mornings inside. The days blend into one another and it can easily feel like groundhog day every morning you wake up. To help you tell the days apart, how about mixing up your breakfast routine with some new ideas? I’ve compiled my favorite breakfast recipes for you to give you some inspiration.
I feel pretty lucky that when I was little, my mom was cooking healthy, homemade food for me. Even though I wasn’t the biggest fan of veggies, there was one dish my mom made that I loved: spinach lasagne!
The only thing I hate about waffles is how much work they are to make. I’m a minimalist, and also a lazy chef, so storing an extra kitchen appliance that has only one purpose and is also a pain to clean, just doesn’t really appeal to me. That’s why I usually opt for pancakes when I’m feeling extra on the weekends (instead of waffles).
What I love about fall are not only the beautiful colors of the trees on a crisp and sunny fall afternoon, but also the fact that pumpkin and gingerbread are being added to menus again.
After having overnight oats for breakfast every day of the week for a few years (and pancakes or oatmeal on the weekends), I’m now experimenting more with different foods for breakfast. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorites because they’re naturally lightly sweet and easy to combine with other breakfast foods, like coconut yogurt and granola.
I’ve been working from home for 2 months now, and my eating habits are quite different than they were in the office. I still have breakfast between 8 and 9, lunch around 12 and dinner around 6 or 7, but the meals themselves and the snacks in between are different.
I love having smoothie bowls for breakfast! Especially when they’re made with a high speed blender, so they are actually as smooth as their name suggests. Smoothies make it easy to sneak in all important nutrients, they are creamy, versatile and delicious. This one contains more vegetables than fruits, but you can’t even taste them!
While it can make you feel amazing to eat healthy, and there are plenty of healthy AND delicious dishes, sometimes you are just craving something sweet or any kind of comfort food. If you still want to make it yourself, instead of just ordering a pizza, I have got you covered with these recipes!
In my opinion, nothing (apart from the smell of freshly brewed coffee) is more pleasant to wake up to than a house smelling of warm cinnamon and toasted nuts. This is exactly what you will get when you make a batch of this vegan granola.
