Have you heard of Nature’s Path before?  Nature’s Path is a family run, sustainably-driven company, who focus on making breakfast healthy, organic, and delicious with their range of cereals, granolas, oats, and cereal bars.

Their tasty array of cereals and granolas are a firm favourite in our house, adults and children alike.  However, no matter how delicious your breakfast cereal is, let’s admit that breakfast does get a a little dull when you’re just eating cereal with plain old milk day in, day out.

So today I’ve teamed up with Nature’s Path, to bring you five different breakfast cereal ideas.  I’ve used two of their delicious cereals – the gluten free Mesa Sunrise cereal flakes, and the tasty Nice & Nobbly gluten free granola – to create five tasty breakfast options that are a bit more exciting than your standard breakfast fare!

Breakfast Five Ways

breakfast cereal with flavoured milk

Looking to jazz up your morning bowl of cereal?  Try some flavoured milk – I opted for chocolate flavoured coconut milk and a sprinkling of cacao nibs for a decadent chocolate treat.  Think Coco Pops for grown ups!

cornflakes with walnut and banana

A more every day (and healthier!) way to enjoy cereal is by chopping some banana over your cereal, sprinkling a handful of crushed walnuts, and serving with regular or plant based milk.

cornflakes with berries

Another easy healthy breakfast idea is simply sprinkling some fresh berries on top of cereal, and pouring over your milk of choice.

bircher muesli with granola

Have you had bircher muesli before?  I must admit, I eat it most days.  In the evening I mix oats, plain yoghurt (vanilla yoghurt if I’m feeling fancy), half a grated apple, a large spoonful of desiccated coconut, and a handful of raisins, and spoon the mix in to an old jar.  Leave it in the fridge overnight, and the next morning the oats are lovely and soft.  It’s a lovely healthy breakfast idea on the go – I rarely have time to eat breakfast at home on work days so I simply pop the jar in my bag to eat at work.  To make it even more of a treat sprinkle some Nature’s Path Nice & Nobbly granola on top at breakfast time to add a delicious crunchy texture.

chocolate spread and granola on toast

Finally, we all love chocolate spread on toast, but for an extra special Sunday morning treat try sprinkling Nature’s Path mixed berry Nice & Nobbly granola and fresh berries over chocolate spread on toast.  So good in every way!

What’s your breakfast of choice?

Ethical Clothing Inspiration

Looking for some summer ethical clothing inspiration?  I’ve put together a list of lovely ethical pieces that have caught my eye lately with summer sun, lazy days, and exploring in mind.  Call it my fantasy fairtrade shopping list if you will!

ethical fashion inspiration

From clockwise:

People Tree top* (£45) – a simple classic for summer days.

Lotta From Stockholm clogs (£56.50) – a stylish sandal upgrade.

People Tree Top* (£60) If I only buy one thing this summer, it will be this top.  It’s made for picnics in the park.  Also, pockets.

Green People Organic Sunscreen* (£22.00) – Sunscreen without the nasties.

Crossed Sunglasses (£95.00) – Expensive sunglasses give me the fear that I’ll drop them, sit on them or leave them sitting on a park bench.  One day I’ll reach Grownup Level 10, where I’ll be incredibly responsible with sunglasses, and consider a pair of these beauties.

Veja Trainers (€75) – for off road adventuring.  And vegan friendly.

Thought Organic Cotton Trousers* (£59.90) – cotton trousers for days when you don’t want to get your legs out, or when it’s too cold for dresses.  Because let’s be realistic for just one second: summer in the UK isn’t all sunshine and blue skies!

 

What are your plans for the summer?  We plan on sorting out our garden, tending to the allotment, spending sunny days in the park, taking day trips to Fife and East Lothian, and taking a wee holiday on the west coast.  Roll on the nice weather!
