Personally I like eating healthily all year round but I pay special attention to what I eat a few weeks before going on holiday as I know I will be indulging myself during the trip! One of the things that I noticed is that if I start the day eating a croissant for example I will let myself go for the rest of the day and indulge until the evening. On the contrary if I start the day by consciously choosing good foods for my body I will have more chance of eating healthily throughout the day. Try this trick and let me know if it works for you too!

One of my issues is that I have a sweet tooth and so I tend to snack all day long. For me breakfast needs to be filling and tasty at the same time as being healthy. So I wanted to share with you three recipes that I’ve been enjoying lately before my summer holidays. Why do I like them?

  • They are easy to make and can be prepared in advanced so you can either have them at home or place them in a tupperware and eat them at work.
  • They keep me fuller for longer and therefore I snack less.
  • They are super tasty and healthy so I start the day with a positive mindset.

1) Tasty Oats

Thank you-2

As summer approaches I don’t fancy hot porridge anymore. So this is a fantastic alternative. It’s the summer-version of porridge!

Oats are still the founation of this bowl but instead of cooking them you just soak them in the fridge over night. This is still a very filling and tasty way to start the day. Give it a try!

Thank you

2) Coconut Yogurt & Smoothie

Thank you

It doesn’t always need to be complicated. Simply top the yoghurt with some granola, berries or nuts and dig in! In this case I used coconut and vanilla flavoured yoghurt which is my new thing. It’s very thick and satisfying. Try new things and you might discover new and yummy textures and flavours!

I also like to have smoothies in the morning. This one I call strawberry delight. See below for the instructions.

Thank you

3) Protein Chocolate Cake

Thank you-3

I love chocolate so this a great excuse to have in the morning without feeling guilty! Also, it contains protein that helps me feel fuller for longer and I can cut a few slices to take  with me as a snack for later on in the day. It’s one of those cakes that it does not last long at home. Give it a try!
