                      Tips when things have to go fast

                      Porridges mit simplen Toppings auf rosa Hintergrund

                      Porridge and dessert for breakfast sounds too good to be true and especially after way too much time in the kitchen? You're at least partly right about that. Although our recipes only require a few ingredients and often do not require cooking, it often has to be quicker in the morning. So that your diet doesn't suffer from your love for every minute of sleep, we have a few tips for you:
                      1. Always have two to three of your favorite foods ready, which together with your porridge form a tasty and healthy meal. Frozen berries or fresh apples in combination with pumpkin seeds or almonds are suitable for this.

                      2. Watch your pantry. Vegan breakfast basics should always be in your closet.

                      3. It doesn't always have to be homemade. Our Crunchy Granola made from ancient grain provides fibre, vegetable protein and is almost annoyingly crunchy even without refined sugar - perfect for a quick breakfast or as a snack in between.

                      Why porridge toppings at all?

                      Toppings not only make your breakfast delicious and varied, but can also provide valuable nutrients. Provided that you prepare them yourself as much as possible, just like your porridge. With our basic recipe your porridge is ready for the breakfast table in just a few minutes and is guaranteed to have the perfect consistency.

                      Prepare your porridge with rolled oats or other grains or pseudo-grains. This is how you ensure the first supply of healthy dietary fiber. Your toppings made from fruit, seeds, nuts and co. provide additional vitamins and healthy fats for your breakfast. This makes your porridge a balanced breakfast and provides you with enough energy for everything you want to achieve during the day.

                      Sweeteners should only be used in small amounts. If you are vegan, it is better to use agave syrup or date syrup instead of honey. As always, if you want to use pre-packaged toppings like muesli, check the ingredient list for hidden sugars or flavor enhancers.

                      Now it's your turn! After this start to the day, the rest can only get better. Enjoy these delicious breakfast ideas and let us know how you implemented and enjoyed the recipes on Instagram.
