If you happen to be experiencing constant bloating, there are ways to offer your stomach a bit of a relief by taking out lactose from your breakfast routine. If milk, yogurt and cheese are your morning staples and you are concerned about how you can have breakfast without them, read further and check out our four wonderful and super easy recipes for some inspiration. Each recipe contains a seasonal ingredient which will enable you to have fresh, tasty and healthy summer breakfasts.
1. Strawberry Chia Pudding – You will need: 500 g/18 oz of strawberries, 2 tablespoons of Agave nectar or any other sweetener and 4 tablespoons of Chia seeds. Process the strawberries into liquid in a blender, then add the Agave and Chia seeds, mix some more and put it in the fridge to rest. If you like a thick pudding, leave it overnight. Decorate with nuts, hemp seeds or any other healthy breakfast topping of your choice.
2. Gluten-Free Granola – It has high levels of iron and is cholesterol-free, but also nutty and sweet – so it basically has everything you need in a bowl of granola. Try using dried figs and plums for your granola, but also add some of your favorite berries in order to sweeten things up.
3. Baked Eggs in Avocado – For this protein-packed meal, you will need: 2 ripe avocados, 4 fresh eggs, 1/8 teaspoon of pepper and 1 tablespoon of chopped chives. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, slice the avocados in half and place them in a small dish. Take out the pit and crack an egg into each. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes and season when done.
4. Wheat-free pancakes – Use 3 cups of almond flour and 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed in order to keep the filling vegan. You can avoid dairy by using coconut or almond milk instead of cow’s milk and use coconut or walnut oil instead of butter. Add as many blueberries as you can and enjoy the wheat-free pancakes.
