A nutritious breakfast is what sets the tone for success every day. Your morning ritual harmonises your metabolism, boosts your energy and productivity, and ensures focus and concentration for facing daily challenges. We know that in the morning you are often in a hurry, so we’ve prepared some great breakfast ideas just for you! These will get you out of the rut and help you enhance your potential every day!
The importance of gluten-free products
Gluten intolerance has only relatively recently been categorised as a medical condition. Still, at least 1% of the globe’s population experiences this condition. This is why we are looking for healthy food options that are good for everyone, including people who are gluten-intolerant.
Consuming gluten-containing food harms the intestines, which prevents the body from absorbing several minerals, including iron. By removing gluten from your diet, you may increase your energy levels, encourage healthy weight growth, get rid of bloating, ease joint discomfort, lessen headache frequency, and feel less depressed.
The good news is that high-quality gluten-free products are now available, and you don’t have to compromise on taste either. Your morning cereals can be replaced with quick, delicious gluten-free options – here are our suggestions:
Rolled Oats are rich in fibres, vitamins, and minerals
Oats are a source of numerous nutrients and health benefits, including:
∙ soluble fibre
∙ energy boosting carbs
∙ vitamins and minerals
All of which can help with weight loss; improved digestive health; decreased cholesterol, blood sugar, and insulin levels; and, better heart health. In comparison to most other grains, pure oats are also gluten-free.
Thanks to their mild taste, they can be easily combined with other ingredients. Furthermore, they are great for a quick breakfast as they don’t require any preparation. You can simply add them to a plant-based milk of your choice or even smoothies. How about using them to top fruit salads, baked goods, or even making your own granola bars? We love the Organic Terrasana Rolled Oats because they are also gluten-free, which makes them suitable for people with celiac disease and gluten intolerance as well.
Porridge is a quick and nutritious warm breakfast
A study published by BBC shows that warm meals tend to keep us full for longer. Just a few extra minutes and you transform your oats into a warm, filling porridge.
To make porridge, oats are simply cooked with water or milk and a pinch of salt. You can add your favourite toppings, such as:
∙ fresh or dehydrated fruits
∙ healthy sweeteners like raw honey or maple syrup
Different grains, such as buckwheat, quinoa, brown rice, spelt, or amaranth can be used to make porridge.
Who said porridge should be plain and boring? Turn your breakfast into a whole new culinary experience with organic, gluten-free porridge – add crunchy nuts, dried fruit, or coconut flakes for extra flavour.
And if you are running out of time, we recommend the Express Porridge from Lima – ready to serve in only 3 minutes!
Rice cakes are a perfect light snack and bread replacement
As they are nutritious, but at the same time relatively low in calories and carbs, rice cakes are the perfect snack – especially if you are trying to maintain a healthy weight. They also contain manganese, a mineral that promotes collagen formation, immune system health, and healthy bones. Niacin, a B vitamin which aids in the body’s conversion of food into energy, is also present in trace levels in rice cakes.
If you want to cut down on bread, you can have your favourite spreads on rice cakes instead of bread slices. If you are looking for some inspiration, have a look at our spreads recipes in the most surprising combinations:
You can opt for simple rice cakes, but we also love rice cakes with salt, buckwheat, or cereals for a more intense flavour – like the 3-cereal Rice Cakes from Lima.
Rice cakes are also an option if you are craving something sweet! You can top them with home-made jams and preserves.
Opt for healthier coffee replacements
Even though coffee gives a certain energy boost for a while, unfortunately it also comes with disadvantages – such as anxiety, increased blood pressure, addiction, and a poor quality of sleep. If you are experiencing any of these, you can try to replace it with healthier options, like herbal tea, chicory, or mushroom powders.
We also recommend Yannoh – a delectable beverage prepared from roasted grains (barley and rye), chicory, and acorns.
Yannoh is 100% organic, gluten-free, and roasted at a low temperature, so it has a very mellow taste. It provides energy without anxiety or sleep-related issues and is a good source of fibre, making it the perfect replacement for coffee.
Gluten-free food may also have other health benefits, such as reducing the risk of chronic diseases, promoting weight loss, as well as boosting energy and immunity. However, these benefits depend on the quality and variety of the gluten-free foods consumed, which is why we only recommend the cleanest and purest products.
