Top 12 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

I don’t know about you but I BLOODY LOVE breakfast. It’s my favourite meal of the day, maybe because I always start the day with a workout so by the time I’ve finished, I’m STARVING.

A fantastic way to get you ready for the day and an opportunity to cram in a load of nutrients and goodness to kickstart your brain and body, I thought I’d pull together 12 of my favourite breakfast snaps from my Instagram account which many of you have liked. Some are vegan friendly and dairy-free, some you can make the night before, but all are healthy, super easy to make and serve one person. Here goes!
