This is another simple breakfast idea that will kick-start your day. I have used the Organic burst powders; maca, spirulina, chlorella and wheatgrass, which gives it a rich green colour and amazing health benefits.
The Maca is great for endurance, stamina and hormonal balance and recent studies show that it acts as a caffeine-free energiser.
The Spirulina is a blue-green microscopic algae. It is high in vitamin B6 and iron, which supports the immune system and is good for a healthy brain. It is great for weight management because it naturally promotes the feeling of fullness. The thiamine in spirulina contributes to healthy heart function. The best thing about spirulina is that it’s very rich in protein (60-70%), containing 18 amino acids including all essential amino acids. The protein in spirulina is four times more absorbable than protein in beef making it a great alternative for vegetarians and people who want an extra protein boost.
The Chlorella is an algae that contains the highest amount of chlorophyll per gram than any other plant on Earth. It is a rich source of folic acid, Vitamin D and iron, which help form new cells, meaning it is wonderfully renewing. It promotes detoxification and supports the gallbladder and kidneys and boosts the immune system. Chlorella contributes to a healthy nervous system, healthy digestive system and healthy thyroid. The zinc and vitamin B2 promotes beautiful healthy skin that glows and the selenium and zinc strengthen the hair and nails.
The Wheatgrass is know for its rejuvenating and alkalising properties. It’s high in vitamin A and antioxidants, which promotes healthy skin and strengthens the immune system. It is good for weight loss because it reduces the feeling of hunger, boosts energy and is high in fibre.
1/4 x tsp Maca powder
1/4 x tsp Wheatgrass powder
1/4 x tsp Chlorella powder
1/4 x tsp Spirulina powder
1 x Large handful of organic oats (soaked overnight to increase the protein)
1/2 x Cup blueberries
1x tbsp Manuka honey
1 x tsp Bee pollen (to garnish)
1 x tsp Mixed seeds (for garnish)
NB: Soak the oats overnight. Measure out how much you want and pour over filtered water using double the amount of water to oats (optional).
In a pan on a medium heat add the soaked oats, powders, manuka honey and half the cup of blueberries. Continually stir for about 5 minutes until everything has mixed together.
Pour into a serving bowl and sprinkle over the rest of the blueberries, the bee pollen and the mixed seeds.
Serve immediately whilst hot.
