Coconut kefir muesli (My Fav)
- Can easily be taken on-the-go, simply make it in a jar instead of a bowl!
- Bran granola is an excellent source of fibre, with up to 10 grams per ½ cup
- Nuts and seeds add plenty of natural protein to the meal
- ½ cup of granola or bran cereal (I prefer ones that have nuts and dried fruits, I find those more filling)
- ½ cup of Revitasize coconut kefir (unsweetened is my favourite; also available in chocolate or vanilla)
- Handful of blackberries (or any berries of your choice)
- 1 tbsp raw, hulled pepita seeds (also known as pumpkin seeds)
- 1 diced dried fig
- Hanful of nuts
Compile and enjoy!
The Peanut-Hemp protein puck
Here’s the thing with these pucks: They are incredible, delicious, and very easy on-the-go.
The peanut hemp puck contains 17 grams of protein! Perfect as a workout snack
A great pairing to the puck is a nut-mylk latte or a chai!
This one is for you cereal lovers. That feeling of fresh, cold milk and chewy grains simply cannot be replaced, and it doesn’t have to be.
- ⅔ cup rolled oats (gluten-free if necessary)
- ½ - ¾ cup fresh nut mylk
- Handful of berries and nuts
It’s easy as oats, mylk, berries, nuts!
Apple-cinnamon oatmeal with peanut butter
- Oats are very high in dietary fibre and even higher in natural, vegan protein, making oatmeal a super filling breakfast!
- ½ cup large flake oats (gluten-free if necessary)
- ¼ cashew mylk (or any nut mylk of your choice)
- ¼ cup applesauce
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ granny smith apple, diced
- Splash of maple syrup
- Handful of nuts and seeds
- Mix mylk, applesauce, and cinnamon in a blender or well-blend manually in a bowl.
- In a small pot, combine the liquid mixture and oats on medium heat.
- Mix gently and cover for 1-2 minutes, mixing with a wooden spoon every 25-30 seconds.
- If dry, add 1-2 tbsp of mylk and keep mixing for another 30 seconds.
- Pour the oatmeal into a bowl and top with diced apple, nuts and seeds of your choice.
- Add a few splashes of maple syrup and top with powdered cinnamon!
Enjoy alongside a vegan latte or tea!
