Pick and mix breakfast bowl

                      

Smooth and crunchy at the same time and packed with protein, soluble fibre and vitamin C, this makes a colourful, satisfying start to the day.  The nutty hemp mixture contains almonds, walnuts, hemp seeds and cocoa nibs and is rich in vitamin E (an antioxidant vitamin that helps to support a healthy immune system). You can find it ready mixed in supermarkets or health food shops or grind your own in a blender using any combination of nuts and seeds – it can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.  Choose yogurt that contains live bacteria – organic, unsweetened, Greek-style is best.

*Try raspberries and blackberries combined with walnuts or cashews to ring the changes.

*Layer up toppings in a clean, sterilised jam jar to make a portable version to take to work.
