Raw Salty Caramel Granola


This has to be one of the most delicious healthy treats / breakfast crumbles I’ve tried in a while. If for no other reason than that, I had to share it. Adapted from the beautiful Loni Jane’s Feel The Lean, I’ve played around with the proportions of oats to dates and added some Himalayan Pink Sea Salt cause I’m a sucker for anything with a salty caramel flavour. And if you haven’t yet heard of Loni Jane, check her out, just one look at her and you’ll be mesmerized / captivated / inspired to never let anything unhealthy touch your lips again ;) . No really, I do hope you give it a go, it only takes a few minutes to whip up, conquers any sweet cravings and guaranteed, you’ll spend the week trying to resist demolishing it in one hit xx

Tropical Pineapple & Date Breakfast Bowl

Pineapple and Dates_ShelleyKamilRecipes

So I’m in the tropics right now and pineapple’s all the rage here, so I figured it was only fitting to write about what has become one my fave breaky combos back home. There’s nothing complex about it or particularly clever, but it does hit the spot. Either a refreshing start to the day or, subtract the banana and reduce the grains and you have the perfect detour from a late night grab for the secret chocolate stash. And we all have one of those, yes? The combination of sweet tangy pineapple and chewy caramel dates really does the trick for a sweet craving, plus the quinoa, buckwheat and banana provide sustenance to set you on the way for a big, full day xx

Vanilla Hemp Milk & Brekkie Bowl

Vanila Hemp Milk ShelleyK Recipes

Despite it’s title, Vanilla Hemp Milk only takes a few seconds to whip up. It’s an excellent nut free, soy free, dairy free milk alternative and adds a splash of sweet nutty vanilla flavouring to an otherwise ordinary Brekkie Bowl. And we’re not about ordinary here. Other than Chia seeds, Hemp seeds are one of the only foods to contain the ideal ratio of omega 6 to omega 3s. Plus, as Hemp Seeds contain the super anti inflammatory essential fatty acid GLA, it helps to balance hormones and can therefore assist with PMS. Above all, Hemp is packed with protein and is arguable the best source of plant based protein available to man. Who knew a brekkie bowl could have so much meaning? Recipe below xx
