Kimba Likes Mindful Living | Breakfast

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.


Introducing my breakfast of choice – Freedom Foods Maple Crunch with zapped frozen raspberries, coconut flakes and Barambah Organics Greek yoghurt with active cultures.

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.

    I am not a good breakfaster either but I do try to eat it every day, if I don;t I don’t take my supplements and then everything starts to unravel a bit. If you eat well at the beginning of the day you are off to a good start, Yoghurt with berries, coconut oil, chia seeds (or LSA) and a bit of maca powder seems to be my go-to. Like you I find bread based meals bloating (and sometimes painful to digest!), I know I ought to be more mindful with it though (and many things!)ReplyCancel

    I like this post Kimba I am very guilty of not having breakfast,most days I am just not hungry! I will try though and eat something!ReplyCancel

      I found that I wasn’t hungry first thing but was then starving and craving sugar a few hours later. This still probably isn’t the best for me, as it does have the sweetened coconut and rice cereal flavoured by maple syrup, but I think my fruit and organic active yoghurt makes up for that! I couldn’t eat yoghurt a few years ago and now I love it!ReplyCancel

    I love your mindful living posts Kimba! I’m actually shocking with having breakfast. Most mornings I don’t have breakfast until I’ve been up for 3 or 4 hours but I usually have a smoothie or a fresh juice after my morning coffee so that counts for something, right? xxReplyCancel

      Oh, that’s lovely to hear, Melinda! I’m just trying to make little changes to live a better life and this breakfast is a pretty good start!ReplyCancel
