In my blogpost “I am a Foodie Pilot” I told you a little bit of my special diet. As many of you have wondered how I prepare my daily breakfast after seeing it on my Instagram and snapchat account I decided to reveal my self created recipe.
My healthy breakfast recipe
Over the years I have changed the ingredients many times to develop the best breakfast I can imagine. I only use organic products.
I would call it the ultimative breakfast bowl consisting of cereals, fruits, toppings, powders and almond milk.
- Rich in fiber
- Good carbohydrates
- Rich in vitamins
- Rich in protein
- Dairy free
- Sugar free
- Good fats
Positive side effects of the ingredients:
- Easy to digest
- Cholesterol lowering
- Energy boost
- Helps the immune system
- An much more…
For my breakfast I produce almond milk myself. It is not a mystery and you will be surprised how easy it is to prepare. Disadvantages of buying almond milk in the supermarket are the added sugar and the low percentage of almonds used.
For about one liter of almond you need:
- one hand full of almonds (non roasted)
- dried coconut flakes (non roasted)
- 8 dates (non sugared)
- 1 liter of cold water
- strong blender like this one
First blend the almonds and coconut very WELL then pour slowly the cold water into the blender. Blend well until it reaches a milk like consistency. Now add the dates. This will add some sweetness. Depending on your taste you decide the amount of them. Blend it again. DONE! One liter of almond milk lasts about 2-3 days depending on the size of the bowl.
You can choose all different kinds of fruit to add. I start out with a banana and a small apple. Depending on the the season I add berries, peaches, pineapple, mangos, etc.
Here is the list of cereal I add to my breakfast bowl. Of course you can add and leave out ingredients.
- Oatmeal (as base)
- Buckwheat flakes
- Amaranth (popped)
- Kamut flakes (rich in protein)
- Wheat bran
- Flax seeds
Additionally I had two kinds of powder:
- 1 x small spoon of wheatgrass powder
- 1 x big spoon of hemp powder
Those are the toppings I use:
- Chia seeds
- 2 dates
- Sunflower seeds
- Pumpkin seeds
- Goji berries
- Chocolate drops by XUCKER (healthy chocolate but not organic)
Put all ingredients in a big bowl and add the almond milk. Now enjoy your super healthy breakfast bowl which gives you energy to start the day.
My tip: Buy the ingredients in big seizes this saves money. Fill them in glas jars which makes the preparation easier.
In the morning I usually drink a green tea. My favorite is “Morgentau” of Ronnefeldt and a glas of grapefruit juice.
