Start Your Day Right: My Personal Breakfast Recipe for Sustained Energy!

Breakfast…it’s a bugger when you’re eating healthy.

  • Cereals…gone
  • Toast and jam…gone
  • Fry up…gone

So what on earth are you supposed to eat?

In line with the principle of embracing a diverse diet (to eat as full a spectrum of nutrients as possible), personally I like to keep things interesting and switch up my meals.

However, I do have a few favourites that I regularly return to.

Why do I love this recipe?

It’s quick to whip up (because who wants to start cooking at 6am).

It’s also light and easy to digest, packs a punch with polyphenols (your gut will thank you!), and it’s kind to your blood sugar levels. This means no mid-morning crashes, just sustained, clean energy and minimal hunger all the way to lunch.

The Morning Berry Bowl

* 45 grams of pearl barley (soaked overnight in 150 ml of unsweetened hazelnut milk)
* 2 tbsp of chia seeds (also soaked overnight with the barley)
* 300g of organic raspberries (frozen works great)
* 3 organic cherries
* A handful of hazelnuts
* A handful of pistachio nuts
* A handful of ground flax or linseed
* 2 Brazil nuts
* 1 medium greenish banana
* 2 tsp of organic, flavourless whey protein
* 100ml of organic, flavourless kefir
* 1 tsp of organic pomegranate powder
* 1 tsp of organic sunflower lecithin


Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. If you’re using frozen berries, give it a quick blend for that creamy, ice-cream-like texture. On chilly mornings, I pair it with a warm cup of tea to balance the temperature.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on this recipe. And if you’re up for it, why not share your own breakfast favourite? Let’s inspire each other with delicious, healthy starts to our day!
