Healthy (and not healthy as well...) breakfast

In search of the ideal breakfast buckwheat pudding with almonds and banana

As the Chinese proverb goes: "Eat breakfast alone, share lunch with your friends and give dinner to your enemy". There is something to it, because according to dietitians, it is the most important meal of the day, because it should supply you with energy after the night's rest. Apart from weekends and holidays we rarely have enough time to prepare and eat breakfast. I am searching for the kind of breakfast which will supply a lot of nutrients and let us start our day pleasantly.

Today for the first time I used buckwheat groats for preparing breakfast. I know that not everyone likes them because of their heavy "smoky" taste and smell. For breakfast I recommend using unroasted buckwheat groats. They are light and in my opinion have a slightly nutty taste, and if we only scour and soak them, the groats don't lose their fibre and valuable vitamins.

I found the recipe for this breakfast in the book "Zielone koktajle. 365 przepisw" ("Green cocktails. 365 recipes" ).

Ingredients:
60g of unroasted buckwheat groats
1 banana
3 dates
150ml of almond milk
half a teaspoon of cinnamon
fruit and almonds for decoration

the complete recipe is here

Halo Helen.

It is just one possible variation - you may try to do it i.e. with millet groats as well.

My yummy breakfast - reward for morning wake-up call

I hate getting up in the morning. Every day, the morning alarm at 6 o'clock is difficult for me. My first thought after awakening every day is the same: "I'll go to bed earlier this evening". Usually, everything finishes with these wishes, because "early" in the evening doesn't exist. When I don't have to get up early, I wake up at 8 o'clock. Then, regardless of the weather outside, my day looks different.

Today I decided to prepare a reward for myself. For these awful mornings. I prepared a breakfast which was so yummy only common sense stopped me from eating a second helping. Buckwheat flakes with almond milk, fruit and some drops of maple syrup. Ok, there were more than several drops of maple syrup, but it was a reward, wasn't it?

Ingredients:
250ml of almond milk
5 tablespoons of buckwheat flakes
a pinch of salt
fruit (figs, grapes, banana, blueberries)
nuts (cashews, almonds)
3 tablespoons of maple syrup

the complete recipe is here
