Ahhhh breakfast. The meal that trips me up so much it’s infuriating. I can whip up a healthy dinner easily and lunch is often just leftovers of said healthy dinner. But breakfast is usually a last-minute consideration in amongst the school bag preparation and ushering of kids out to school. After having Finn, I found myself in a terrible rut of just making a cup of tea and scoffing hobnobs from the cupboard amidst the chaos.
After coming to the realisation that breakfast was, in fact, the cornerstone of my diet and that said hobnob scoffing often resulted in a day laden with poor food choices, I decided that enough was enough. I started making a concerted effort to have a healthy breakfast, which, for me, usually means low carb, high in protein and healthy fats. I was a bit late to the comments on my mental health routine post, where a few of you requested the vanilla and banana smoothie recipe. So rather than a tardy reply buried in comments, I thought it best to place it in this post.
