My favourite brekkie was the pancakes I had on the morning of my birthday this year. A generous stack of simple healthy pancakes made with eggs, banana and oats, topped with a berry and lemon compote, drizzled with nut butter.

This berry quinoa bowl is one of my favourite breakfasts because not only does it taste delicious, it is filling and packed full of iron, B-vitamins, magnesium, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and fibre to give me all the energy I need for the day ahead. Quinoa is also brilliant as it is naturally gluten-free and one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein.

Growing up, porridge always felt like the most boring of breakfasts and one that you could only top with brown sugar or jam, and feel instantly dissatisfied once you'd scooped up the top layer. But now, it's at the top of my breakfast loves and something that genuinely gets me out of bed and excited to tuck into a warming bowl of goodness! Not only is porridge low GI, meaning it releases energy slowly, it's also overwhelmingly versatile and is my favourite way to experiment with flavours. Play around with different milks, spices and toppings and you could have a different porridge every day for weeks! My go-to is cooked in brown rice milk, a little salt, cinnamon, turmeric and cardamom and topped with warmed berries and lashings of my favourite nut butter.

I go through breakfast obsession phases! In the summer it's usually my classic green smoothie: frozen banana, almond butter, hemp hearts, spinach and nut milk (and sometimes a frozen cucumber too, for some freshness). At the moment I'm loving my creamy vanilla chia seed pudding. I make a big batch on Sunday and keep it in the fridge all week so that each morning I can just top it with whatever I'm in the mood for. It takes 30 seconds to throw together and I usually take it on the go with me in a glass jar so it's super convenient for a busy day! My favourite combo at the moment is topped with cashew butter, coconut chips and cacao nibs or almond butter with goji berries, blueberries and coconut chips.
