Breakfast smoothies have become part of my staples. They’re quick and easy to make in a blender and don’t need a lot of ingredients. Plus, they’re deliciously yummy and satisfying.
So I thought I’d share three of the ones I do most, depending on what I feel like having in the morning.
When living in Qatar, I had no idea how easy it would be to make my own hummus. Granted, it is never going to be as good as some of the hummus I had over there, but it is still pretty great. I couldn’t imagine living without it and it has become somewhat of a weekly staple for us.
Disclaimer, I like mine with a garlic and lemon taste, so if you want to be a bit cautious, add less of them to begin with and taste test.
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about our weekly veg and fruit boxes and how we survive on that. One of the staple breakfast options I make almost on a weekly basis is a chocolate granola.
It is quick, easy and dangerously delicious!
I love a good curry from time to time, especially since some of our spices are still from Doha, which I bought in bagful before we left. It just makes cooking them that much more special. I use the term curry loosely; pretty sure the types of curries I do are very westernised, but still very tasty.
This one only takes about 20 minutes, so it’s brilliant if you don’t have a lot of time.
I’ve shifted my eating habits to being more plant-based over the past year and a half and have enjoyed discovering more variety of food and cooking. Sometimes, it is certainly a challenge, but I love the creativity that comes with having to come up with meals based on only a few items in the fridge. It reminds me of that UK TV show, way back when, where the audience brought items for 10£ and 2 chefs had to compete and cook something in 15 minutes (green tomatoes vs red tomatoes?).
My husband wrote a post about what a plant-based lifestyle is, if you fancy more of a read on that. I thought I’d take you on a bit of a different journey.
