FFF Breakfast

I love breakfast, morning time brings hope and new possibilities, so with this in mind let’s start our days the way we mean to go on. You may wonder why a FFF Breakfast? Well it's super simple to prepare, and despite it’s name, not a repetition of expletives, no, no, no, it's more of a Yes, yes, yes start. Mornings are ideally a time of calm, for sure that is the dream scenario, though often not the reality. In fact, if there’s one meal that is skipped throughout the day, breakfast wins every time. An FFF breakfast offers a deliciously fresh beginning to our day, so say goodbye to chaos and hello to calm. 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you've heard it before and you'll hear it again, because its absolutely true. Breakfast sustains us and it's as though we're eating a bowl full of clarity, and that’s one thing you’ll be missing if you skip it. Breakfast is the key building block of our day, without it shaky foundations take root and our blood sugars nose dive. A great beginning needs a splendid breakfast; the old adage goes, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper.” By eating breakfast you'll be kick-starting your metabolism and giving your body the grace it naturally deserves.

A Feeling Food Fast Breakfast is fit for a King and offers a nutritious and simple breakfast boost, which will add an extra bounce to your step. After a good nights sleep, our tanks are low and need replenishing. Monday mornings often jump us into a frenzy, the gentle lulling of Sunday a distant past, so reach for the blender and give yourself a fantastic start to the week. It’s a deeply delicious combination of fruit and dairy. Please don’t be perturbed by the raw egg, though make sure that you use fresh free-range ones and that there are no cracks in sight. The mango mellows the yolkiness and is a high in iron and a powerful antioxidant. Cashews keep hunger at bay and cinnamon helps prevent colds and eases PMT. I love to sprinkle some Linwood Ground flaxseed and nuts for extra goodness and texture. Lovelylicious. All good then!

I love this quote –

“The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours.  No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen.  And the fact that it practically always doesn’t matters not a jot.  The possibility is always there.”  ~Monica Baldwin

Happy Monday to you! FFX
