Wake up to Organic! Organic breakfast, anyone?
If I could afford to eat and feed my children organic food only, I would switch to an all-organic lifestyle right away. Not only does organic food taste better, but I also find the thought of pesticides and chemicals in our food rather alarming. In my first pregnancy, all the food I ate was organic, and my children were weaned on organic vegetables and fruit, but keeping it up is so costly…
These days, there are only a few products I buy organic every single time: coconut oil, Organix treats for the children and I (the oaty bars are addictive!), Rachel’s Greek style bio-live yogurt, nut butters, carrots & avocados. The nationwide ‘Wake Up To Organic’ campaign takes place tomorrow and over 10,000 free organic mini breakfasts will be available in the morning. Click here to find a local store near you as well as recipes from chefs supporting the campaign.
It is really simple to make the switch and breakfast is a great place to start so you can wake up to organic food. Although we are on a budget when it comes to food (and pretty much anything!), it is a realistic challenge to switch breakfast to organic as it will not be such a shock to my bank account as it would be to try (and without the shadow of a doubt fail miserably) and switch every single meal to organic food.
My Organic Breakfast Week so far
So far this week, I have had a couple of organic breakfasts. Yesterday was more of a brunch, really. I had made a seeded loaf over the weekend, so I topped it with mashed avocado, crumbled Feta cheese and a sprinkle of hot chilli powder (all organic). A minute or two under the grill and a strong cup of coffee in hand (organic too!) and I was in heaven!
This morning, I had my favourite yoghurt (if you haven’t tried it, give it a go!), Rachel’s organic Greek style coconut yoghurt, topped with organic granola. I also had fruit and an espresso (yes, it was this kind of morning when you need a shot of coffee!).
What’s the best breakfast you’ve ever had?
Disclosure: I was sent a range of organic breakfast products but I was not compensated in any other way for this post. All opinions are my own.
