Since I was little, I had trouble eating breakfast. I always got nauseous after eating my breakfast which made my avoid this part of the day. Ending up extremely hungry before lunchtime. Now I have found a new morning ritual which makes me even happy to get up and eat breakfast.
I know that I am not the only one having trouble eating breakfast. So here is a post about what I eat, and a few tips that can help you.
First of all, I try to skip most of the unnatural sugars. So I don’t eat cereals with a lot of (mostly hidden) sugar in it. It maybe tastes good, but after kicking your body with this bowl of sugar, you will get a sugar rush and after one hour or so you will get hungry again and feel tired. So please try to avoid this!
You have to eat things that will give you a lot of energy and won’t make you feel hungry after one hour. Bread for instance is ok, but it still has not enough fibers to fuel you up. (I am not a big fan of bread anyway)
I usually eat oats! The thing about oats is that they have a very subtle taste, so you can add anything to it. I throw everything in my oats. Cinnamon, coconut, hemphearts, chiaseeds, lineseeds peanutbutter, raisins, cranberries, all sorts of fruit actually as well as the dried versions. Most of this you can buy at your local grocery store, and others in organic/biologic grocery stores, or at the market. Where I usually buy mine.
These seeds are very healthy and have al sorts of positive effects on your body and brains! Look them up if you are interested.
Since I enjoy cooking and baking so much,for me making a breakfast is sort of a ritual. I want to put everything in the right place, make sure that I cut my banana straight and serve it nice and clean. In this way I appreciate it more because I put time and effort in it. (Even if you don’t have time, preparing oats takes only 5 minutes and you can even prepare them the day before and put them in de fridge.)
I can go on and on about this, but will save it for another day. Here are some photo’s from my instagram account that I made for inspiration!
