Kate and I recently hosted the VEGAN WHOLEFOOD NUTRITION workshop where we shared this delicious recipe. One thing we both often hear in the clinic, is that there is no time to create something healthy for breakfast – cue easy and nutritious recipes that take a second to make and even can even do one better … get packed into a jar and made at work to enjoy during that morning meeting.
Breakfasts should start your body for the day ahead. We need good fats, protein, fibre and a variety of phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals to nourish, nurture and satisfy for the many MANY tasks we try and pump into the day.
This recipe hits all those boxes, and when you add in some seasonal fruit it helps go even further.
