I don't believe in resolutions but every year I tell myself I will cook more and put my learnt skills to practice instead of letting them go to waste.
I studied Professional Cookery for 3 years and though I am nowhere near a professional I'd like to think I know more than the basics.
This year, I decided to add a new section to this blog full of recipes and other things to do with health. They aren't going to be always healthy, just recipes I'll be trying here and there.
So I hope they become of use to you and at the end of the year, I'd like to see how much of that 'cook more' I've actually put into action.
To start in this section, I thought I'd do a very simple one: breakfast.
I know some people skip breakfast and don't really bother with them on some days, I'd know because I used to do it a lot but like every breakfast fanatic and health enthusiast will tell you, breakfast is a very important part of the day.
It really does affect your mood for the day especially if you have a good one.
This spring/summer has really inspired me to eat more fruits especially berries since they're in season.
Here's a recipe that is not only delicious but also healthy (with at least 4 of your 5 a day) and most importantly it's super quick and easy so there's no excuse at all to skip breakfast anymore.
5 Fruits and Granola Breakfast
•Blend 1 banana and 1 avocado together. Add a little bit of milk if the consistency is too thick. Sprinkle with Aduna Baobab powder* (optional).
•Top with your chosen berries and granola.
•Enjoy with a good fruit shake or hot fruit tea.
*A review of this coming soon
Let me know if you try out the recipe, I'd love to know what you guys think and if you take pictures I'd love to see them so tag me in '@marieljanina' :) Have a good week ahead lovelies xo
