With that said, I’m sharing my breakfast from a couple of days ago. I had bought a glut of berries when they were on offer at the supermarket and market (when Ashley and I went mad and bought 6 punnets of blueberries) and tucked them all away in the freezer for another day.
Beetroot and Berry Breakfast Bowl
200g frozen raspberries
100g frozen strawberries
75g Greek yogurt
4tbsp oats (I used Rude Health’s Drinking Oats)
20g (2 servings) beetroot powder (I used Matt Dawson’s Superfood Beetroot Powder)
Small handful granola, to serve
1 In a food processor or blender, blend together all of the ingredients (except the granola). Add more milk or water until you reach desired consistency.
2 Divide between two bowls or glasses, top with a little granola and enjoy immediately.
I used Rude Health’s Drinking Oats as they dissolve into the liquid, rather than creating a thick and chunky texture, but feel free to use whatever oats you have on hand. Additionally, if you don’t like beetroot, you could omit it or add in another powdered supplement, such as protein powder or flax.
Studies have shown that beetroot is great for athletes (and recreational runners!) because it helps boost stamina, apparently by helping to improve oxygen efficiency. It’s also full of antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals, including Potassium, Magnesium, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Folic Acid.
