It's even harder to make something tasty, nutritious and relatively low cost. Well, keep reading this article for ideas to spruce up your breakfast with seasonal changes that can make any of the options easy, tasty, and done in under 10 minutes!
1. Savoury Oatmeal
Okay. This sounds kind of weird, right? Everyone's used to putting fruits and brown sugar in oatmeal, but the idea of salty oatmeal doesn't seem to sit right. Right? Well, don't knock it until you try it. All you need is some salt, oil, garlic and spices. Throw in your leftover veggies and top with an egg if you have that extra time!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
2. Open Faced Toast
Now, something I love to have for breakfast is toast spread with spoons of hummus. It's not something commonly done, but it's delicious! Depending on the season and what vegetables are in season, I like to add slices of tomatoes, cucumber or avocado and it's such a versatile recipe.
3. Banana Date Smoothies
A delicious combination that's not well known is bananas and dates. The combination can be so versatile as a spread, granola bar, bread or smoothie.I usually use a ratio of 7 dates per medium banana and add soy milk and blend. However, here's a more detailed recipe for those who like to start with some instruction. It's delicious, tastes like a milkshake but with none of the guilt.
If you love the combination, then it's worth it to take the extra time and make this date sweetened banana bread recipe. I've never been so in love with anything that wasn't pumpkin spice.
