You will also find a recipe for Chia Preserves and a recipe for Nut Milk.
The recipes included range from meals you can prepare in advance (overnight oats),
for when you have a little extra time to make breakfast (corn and chickpea fritters), for when you need to take your breakfast with you on the go (look for the “Good to Go” symbol throughout the book – some examples are smoothies and breakfast bars) and there are even recipes for the pickiest of eaters (young children) – who could say ‘no’ to a smoothie bowl? It is a healthier version of an ice cream sundae!
Each recipe includes per serving calorie information, step by step written instructions and an ingredient list. Super Tips are included throughout the book in colorful little boxes. They include information about how long and how to properly store your granola, simple ideas to change up the ingredients included in a recipe and how to easily prepare items you need to add to a dish.
Superfood Breakfasts also teaches us Why Breakfast is Good For Us (p 8),
Top Superfoods : fruits (p 26),
Top Superfoods: Grains and Seeds (p 34), Top Superfoods: Vegetables (p 46) and Nutri-boosting powders (p 60).
The recipes I am going to try first are the Smoothies to Go: Papaya & Carrot, Berry & Beet and Watermelon and Fennel; Overnight Oats: Mixed Berries & Flaxseeds, Peanut Buter & Maple Syrup & Banana and Apple, Cardamom & Pomegranate; Sweet Coconut Loaf and Corn and Chickpea Fritters.
My children want to try the smoothies and (of course) the Smoothie Bowls!
I love how the recipes included are quick and simple but also practical. They can be made with ingredients which can be found easily at the grocery store. Adding proper nutrition to our day is becoming more and more important, especially as our lives become busier. Superfood Breakfasts includes 25 recipes we can include easily for breakfast, or even as healthy snack options throughout the day.
