Most people know that skipping breakfast is not such a good idea.
When you start your day with an empty stomach, your blood-sugar levels drop and at some time, before lunch, you’ll be craving for an instant sugar fix.
Which usually means chocolate, more coffee, or some other interesting choice…
But what if you’re not a morning person, not hungry in the morning or not into bread for whatever reason and want to eat ‘something’ before “warrioring” into your day?
Herewith some ideas for you; easy and above all, tasty!
1. Budwig inspired brewery
Dr. Johanna Budwig is a German Biochemist and blood specialist who’s been treating cancer of all kinds with cottage cheese and flaxseed oil recipes for over 16 years.
The original recipe can be found online, this is my own version and it can be made the night before in about 7 minutes (depending on how easy it is to clean your blender :))
1 cup raw linseed
2/3 cup raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup raw almonds
100 gr low fat (soy) yoghurt
1 banana, 2 apples (or whatever fruit is in your fruit basket)
Handful of nuts, some raisins, some Goyi berries
Some sweetener like Ahorn syrup, coconut, cinnamon, preferably not sugar.
Add some water, otherwise it becomes cement overnight…, and blend it all with a mixer. Put it in the fridge to rest and you have a great breakfast in the morning!
The mix of Linseed, Sunflower and Almond is easy to make upfront as well, or bought even as LSA in some shops.
For fun, I usually pour my Budwig into a beer glass!
2. Crackers with interesting toppings
Slice 1 avocado, 1 tomato, some pepper and salt and put it all on two crackers.
Hummus, egg plant spread, all options too: yummie!
Egg whites are healthier than whole eggs but the options are endless.
Add some tomatoes, peppers, onions, salad, …
Really no time? Why not boil some eggs the night before and take them with you?
4. Fresh fruit salad
Cut up some apples, bananas, berries, oranges, pears, or whatever your favorite fruits are. You can even add some yoghurt et violà, a perfect start!
5. Banana smoothie
125gm (1/2 cup) natural yoghurt
some honey or other sweetener
1 cup of LSA (Linseed-Sunflower-Almond)
3 drops vanilla
½ cup fruit juice of your choice (or soy milk)
Place all ingredients in your blender and process on high until smooth.
I learned to make these pancakes during a retreat in Sulawesi and I’ve kept on making them. These are not your ordinary pancakes, these are Tasikoki pancakes!
½ cup of buckwheat flower
½ half a cup of LSA (Linseed-Sunflower-Almond)
some raisins and cinnamon
1 teaspoon of baking powder
2 eggs, get your first exercise of the day with the egg white J
3 cups of soy milk
2 spoons of Rapadura or any other sweetener, and … happy bakings!

Rice? In the morning? Yes! Warm food is a joy for our stomach in the morning. Ever noticed that in Asia it’s very common to have a warm breakfast? It may take you a while to get used to it but why not give it a try?
Just mix some warm veggies into a bowl of rice and enjoy.
I know it’s not always easy to start with a good breakfast but I hope these ideas will give you some inspiration and a way to maybe break with the pattern of not eating at all in the morning.
I invite you to share your thoughts here below.
Do you have any breakfast ideas of your own?
And, let me know when you’ve tried one of the ideas I mentioned!
Just drop your comment here below, and share this blog post if you like it!
Budwig doe ik al jaren! Ik houd het zelf wel bij het originele recept maar dit receptje ga ik ook zeker eens proberen! Is er een reden waarom je de lijnzaadolie er uit laat?
De afwisseling in wat je eet in het algemeen, dus ook ‘s morgens is vooral belangijk dus leuk blog met enkele nieuwe ideeën. De rijst lijkt me echt niet zo lekker ‘s morgens maar ik ga het wél proberen!
Klopt, in Azië zitten ze allemaal aan de rijst of noedels ‘s morgens!
Great comment as linseed oil is definitely in the original recipe!
I left it out because the linseeds itself are enough for my digestion (if you know what I mean…) and in general, I don’t handle oils that well.
Good luck on trying out the rice in the morning!
In de zomer maak ik bijna iedere ochtend variaties op bananensmoothies, maar ik doe er havermout en spinazie bij, met soya of amandelmelk en ander fruit waar ik die dag zin in heb. Het enige ontbijt dat me met gemak tot ‘s middags verzadigd doet voelen!
Thanks for the comment Patricia.
Spinach and bananas? Mmm, got to try that one out!
I would like to know what is the difference beweten Asda gluten free white rolls and Asda gluten free brown rolls. Our grandaughter can only tolerate the brown ones and we are wondering if it is something in the white rolls or the flour processing which she has an intolerance to. Also can we obtain these rolls on prescription? It is a very expensive business living on gluten free. There are lots of gluten/wheat free products on prescription but many of them have the same nasty effects as products containing wheat/gluten. Please can you help?
Thank you for your message Ari,
