With the cold crisp mornings of November, some of us are rising to dark mornings and this is when getting out of bed feels even harder than usual.
Ely Mattress understands the struggle – the feeling of getting out of your warm and cosy bed, the thought of bracing the cold can be quite off-putting. Plus, many of us are thinking about our health and weight – especially with December just around the corner (the month of indulgence) cutting back on the calories now, can maybe allow us to indulge in the Christmas treats, guilt-free.
So, if you’re after some healthy breakfast inspiration, we have narrowed down three of our favourite healthy breakfast recipes for you to try.
These pancakes are sugar free so make for a great healthy breakfast and we promise you won’t miss the sugar in these! With morning’s getting colder, it would be a treat to have a warm pancake for breakfast.
Mornings can be rushed – and we may not have time for a healthy cooked breakfast, so why not do some extra preparation beforehand and make a batch of home-made breakfast bars. These contain no sugar but are just so delicious and convenient!
Makes: 6 bars
Chia Seeds are known as a superfood because they are packed with so much goodness! Some studies even suggest that the fibre that is contained in a portion can help people lose weight. Here’s how to make your very own pot of goodness containing chia seeds.
Combine the almond milk, chia seeds, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Stir until well combined. (Make sure the chia seeds are completely coated in almond milk in order to ensure proper absorption.) Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Stir before serving.
If you love rice pudding or tapioca, chia pudding will be right up your street! Best of all: the recipe is so simple, so it’s perfect for rushed mornings: throw all the ingredients into a jar and it basically makes itself!
A healthy sleep is just as important as a healthy breakfast
We’ve all heard the saying: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day – but did you know, for optimum health, we also need to look at getting sound sleep, night after night?
What we sleep on matters just as much as what we put in our bodies. Have you ever thought about the toxic materials used to make mattresses in today’s industry? Glue, adhesives, foam are all non-natural sleep surfaces and could be harmful to us.
Therefore, we created a healthy mattress – handmade from natural materials – and better yet, fully biodegradable so you will sleep easy, knowing you’re leaving less of a carbon footprint by buying an Ely.
