They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I know I’m guilty of sometimes forgetting to feed myself in the morning, or eating a piece of toast whilst I’m busy being a domestic goddess / bunny wrangler / homework supervisor / lunch maker / all round superstar. Eating that piece of toast mindlessly, if I do remember to eat it. I don’t sit down. I don’t savour the flavour. I don’t enjoy it. Eating breakfast had become another morning chore rather than a mindful ritual to start off my day the right way.
I’m trying so hard to eat mindfully, more healthily as part of my Mindful Living personal campaign. I regularly crash and burn but I do try to get my day off to a good start!
I’m not gluten intolerant, but I do find that if I eat too much bread and gluten, I get bloated and uncomfortable. I’m totally in love with my new breakfast combo. I didn’t set out to intentionally find a gluten free cereal but I am really noticing a difference now that I’ve cut a a bread-based meal out of my daily routine.
I’d love to eat fresh raspberries every day but the price is prohibitive, even in season, so I find the frozen raspberries are a great solution. Just chuck a handful into a breakfast bowl, give them a quick zap in the microwave for a minute or so. Tip in as much Maple Crunch as you like, depending on how hungry you are! Sprinkle a handful of coconut in, and add a generous couple of spoonfuls of yoghurt. Add a cup of tea and enjoy!
It sets me up for the day, adds some healthy yoghurt cultures to my tummy, and means that I’m not bloated nor starving again after a quick slice of toast on the run.
Having a decent breakfast under my belt is all part of my Mindful Living ethos – a set of rules I try to apply to my life and the way I’m living my life.
