Three Easy Breakfast

Hi guys

Here are three of my favorite breakfasts that you can prepare in few minutes and are good for busy days.

1- The first one is the easiest one, all you need is:

-one tbs maple syrup

-hand full of blueberries

-one cup of roasted spelt

Just mix everything and you’re good to go. It’s delicious, crunchy and contains high amounts of protein and fiber. Caution: spelt is not a gluten-free grain, actually it’s high in gluten.

2-The second one is my favorite; avocado toast

– three pieces of toast (I prefer whole grain)

-one avocado

-salt & pepper

-olive oil (a few drops)

-two small tomatoes

Smash the avocado in a small bowl using a fork. Mix in pepper, salt and olive oil. Spread it in on the breads. Slice tomatoes in small pieces and put it on the top. Enjoy.

3- The last one is for coffee lovers:

-one cup of coffee

-two ripe bananas

-handful of Chia seed

-handful of flaxseed

-few ice cubes

Threw everything in a mixture and mix. What I like about this one is that you can put it a mason jar, put the lead on and eat your breakfast on the way to work or school.

What is your “breakfast on the run”? Please share them in the comments.

Put the pot on high heat until it starts boiling. Turn the heat down and put on the lead. cooking time depends on what kind of barley you are using. Since I’m using organic barley it takes 50 minutes. If you don’t know how long to wait, check the barley time to time, when it looks like the barleys in the picture, you can take next step.
