Let’s explore the different types of hunger we may experience so that we can better understand our motivations for eating throughout the day, what we are feeling, and how to truly give our bodies what they need.
Porridge or oatmeal is one of the most common breakfast dishes and for good reason. What better way to start the day than with a warm comforting bowl of oats with delicious toppings. Oatmeal can be made into a sweet or savoury dish.
This is a delicious way to incorporate more vegetables at breakfast, or any meal of the day. Zucchinis have quite a mild taste and pair well with the creamy and salty cheese in this recipe. You can top these fritters with plain Greek yogurt or use them as a base for your favorite protein!
These are quite different from the traditional American-style pancakes or French crepes. This is a take on a popular crepe-like dish from Russia, called blini. They are much thinner and wider, with many tiny holes that make them soft and chewy.
This chia seed jam is a quick and easy homemade substitute for store-bought jam, and is packed with health-promoting nutrients. Chia seeds have an incredible ability to absorb liquid and form a gel, which allows us to achieve that yummy jam-like texture.
Ever feel like breakfast is too rushed or there’s not enough time to make something before you have to head out the door? These vegetable frittata muffins are one of my favourite to-go breakfasts. They can be made ahead of time and are easy to reheat and take with you, or reheat once at work.
Fibre is a highly underrated nutrient. There is a wealth of evidence supporting the tremendous health benefits of eating more fibre, including the prevention of many chronic diseases. Unfortunately, many people fall short of consuming enough of this important nutrient.
