Jamie Oliver recommends porridge as a go-to healthy breakfast meal. Even though it is often criticised for being boring, Jamie insists you can change it up with a range of different topping combos. Jamie Oliver's favourite topping is banana and cinnamon as bananas are high in potassium. Fresh berries are also a great summer topping, and raspberries are a great source of vitamin C, which our bodies need to keep our immune systems strong and healthy.
Jamie suggests we make a breakfast smoothie if we are in need of a breakfast in a hurry. Whizz together some frozen fruit, natural yogurt, fruit juice, milk and a handful of oats to give it a bit more sustenance as a breakfast alternative. This is a great tip for those of you who are often guilty of skipping breakfast. This breakfast option is often chosen by avid gym goers who like to add protein and chia seeds into their smoothies to repair muscles and keep post-workout soreness at bay!
Jamie Oliver strongly advocates that we all include eggs into our breakfast options. Eggs are another protein-filled breakfast option. As well as being a source of various other essential vitamins and minerals, the yolks are a great source of vitamin D, which we need to absorb calcium and keep our bones strong and healthy.
