So I started going to parties and also studying at night only when I knew I don’t have to go anywhere in the morning and I can sleep for as long as I want. And I started eating breakfast instead of drinking my emergency cup of coffee, which led to more energy through the day and I also felt a lot better, no matter how much work I had. It took quite a while to get used to such rhythm and I still have trouble with forcing myself to go in bed around or before midnight, and not eating after eight because there is no chance I can eat breakfast if I do. And so I turned my favorite meal from midnight pizza to healthy breakfast. This change let me to making my own granola, because I never really liked the store bought, there was always something wrong with them: the taste or the price. And students can be really creative when it comes to saving money 😀
And here are some of the best tasting and pest looking ideas.
Put three spoons of chia seeds into coconut milk, mix and leave in the fridge overnight. Mix again in the morning and enjoy the pudding 🙂
This is a version by my friend Barbara, another huge breakfast lover. The recipe is really simple, you just pour in the yogurt and add banana slices.
More decadent version with chocolate soy pudding. Like eating cake for breakfast.
And one perfect for autumn and winter: warm rice/soy/kamut/(insert the name of your favorite kind of milk) with cinnamon.
But I really cant get out of my skin, so for the end, here is another granola recipe, I think the best one till now. Even my mum, who never eats cereal kept grabbing a bite or two from the jar.
1 cup of spelt flakes
1/2 cup of unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 cup of coconut chips
2 tbsp of ciha seeds
1/3 cup of agave syrup
1/3 cup of water
Mix the wet and the dry ingredients separately and then combine them all together. Spread them on a tray, covered with baking paper and put them in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes at 150°C, turn them around and bake for another 30 minutes. Then lower the temperature on 120°C and leave them in the oven for approximately 15 minutes, maybe 5-10 less or more.
