29. Comforting Cooked Breakfast

🍁🍂 Weekend breakfasts are really good when they’re greasy and cooked. Blogtober day 29 has an oil-free alternative that won’t feel like your missing out and will still give you that hangover cure feeling.

What you will need:
– 2 hash browns yes they are vegan, just check the packet to make sure
– 1 large tomato
– 1 handful of mushrooms
– 1/2 tin of bakes beans
– 1/2 tsp smoked paprika or cayenne pepper optional

Directions:
Pop the hash browns, sliced mushrooms and halved tomato on a baking tray with parchment paper. Season with salt and pepper. Leave in the oven for 20 minutes at 200c fan/220c convection oven.

Heat up your beans on the hob for 3-4 minutes. Add some spice if you wish (I think it tastes extra good with it).

Serve up and possible garnish with basil, it looks pretty and actually tastes awesome in this breakfast.

* The ingredients in this meal have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
Tomatoes are packed with vitamins. They are great for your skin, your heart and your eyes. They also help to repair damaged cells from smoking so put your cigarette out and eat some tomatoes.
Beans are amazing. Everyone should incorporate more of these into their weekly diet. Cannelini beans help with collagen production, vision and nervous system function and are also great for appetite regulation.
Mushrooms are known to help with metabolism and energy usage.

Cinnamon. What can I say? It’s one of those things that makes food taste like a treat and looks after you without you even realising it. It is a powerful antioxidant and anti inflammatory, great for protection against disease as well as painful conditions such as arthritis. It also has beneficial effect on neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s by protecting neurons and normalising neurotransmitter levels.
– Look up to cinnamon for the benefits nutmeg has to offer as they are very similar. It helps to improve cognitive function whilst simultaneously reducing insomnia and helping with immune function.
Apples are also quite impressive when it comes to the prevention and the fight against disease. Reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer with their antioxidants and flavonoids, apples are always a good idea.

6. Overnight Oats

🍁🍂 Day six of Blogtober brings you a hearty breakfast of good old fashioned oats. So simple yet so filling. These are great to prepare the night before so you don’t have to think about making breakfast as soon as you wake up. As the mornings are getting colder, you may want to skip the overnight part and just chuck all of the ingredients in the microwave for a nice warm start to the day, it’s up to you.

What you will need –
– 1 mug of oats
– 250ml soy yoghurt (coconut or vanilla flavour works really well)
– 100ml almond milk
– 1 tsp cinnamon
– 1/2 tsp ginger
– 2 tbsp maple syrup
– 1 banana
– 1 handful of blueberries (I buy frozen blueberries as they are cheaper and last longer)
– desiccated coconut to sprinkle on top (optional)

Directions
Add the ingredients to a mason jar or and stir well. Sprinkle over the dedicated coconut if you have any. Most recipes will tell you to layer the ingredients but I find that it is much tastier when they are mixed together. It won’t look so Instagram worthy though so beware 😉 Leave in the fridge overnight for an easy grab and go breakfast.

*The ingredients in this recipe have many health benefits and I will list just a few:
Blueberries are pretty much one of the most super of foods. They have a higher antioxidant content than any other fruit or vegetable and are packed full of vitamins. These berries take care of you very well indeed.
Ginger is a member of the curcumin family which is a great anti inflammatory and also helps with age related cognitive decline.
Maple syrup is my favourite sweetener and it is unrefined and natural so far better for you than sugar or ‘stevia.’ It’s great for skin and digestive function and you maybe surprised to find that it is actually relatively high in calcium – amazing!
