Breakfast ideas designed for wellbeing
Breakfast, being the first meal of the day where-in you break your overnight fast post-slumber, serves as the perfect opportunity to fill and fuel your body with nourishment. With a nourishing and beautifully balanced breakfast, you are starting the day off on the right foot.
Is eating breakfast the key to living a longer life?
There is not enough research to support this statement as of current, however, there are many breakfast foods that you can incorporate as part of a healthy diet into your first meal of the day. Eating breakfast also means fuelling your body at the start of the day, which will keep you going until lunch.
With the plethora of breakfast options available, these are our top four favourites, and here is why:
Oats are a well established source of beta-glucans, a type of dietary fibre which helps to reduce the absorption of the type of cholesterol linked to cardiovascular disease. Including enough porridge oats consistently within your diet supports a healthy heart.
There are so many different ways of cooking porridge oats, whether it be over the hob or leaving it in the fridge overnight! Do not be afraid to get creative with it either; you can also mix oats with other grains, and add a wide variety of toppings to it, from chopped fruit and nuts, to eggs -- the sky's the limit!
Kurami’s ancient grains porridge is made with a blend of gluten-free porridge oats and buckwheat, with a coconut base, complete with a fresh fruit compote.
Yoghurt is a fermented food which has been around for a long time. It is made with strains of live probiotics, which means that they can contribute to our gut health. There are an abundance of yoghurt options now available, each of them made from all kinds of milk, including plant alternatives. The KuYo (Kurami Yoghurt) is handcrafted by our team of chefs. This gut health promoting delicacy is curated with coconut drink, and served alongside our nutritiously delicious range of breakfast options.
The main difference between sourdough and other baked goods is that it is made from a special starter yeast which includes naturally-occurring microorganisms, giving the bread its characteristic acidic taste. The fermentation process seems to help with breaking down some of the carbohydrate in the bread whilst lowering overall gluten levels too.
A well-known source of the ‘good fats’.Unsaturates, which are essential to our health, are found in the almighty avocado. Avocado is one of our favourite breakfast ingredients. Our team of chefs flavour the avocadoes to enhance your breakfast and snack experience. This is served alongside Kurami’s Chia and Buckwheat toast, as well as our Veggie & Dip dishes.
With the many nourishing breakfast options that we have available to us, particularly the few that we have mentioned above, what remains important is that we are conscious of consuming a variety of whole foods, building a plate filled with colour and nutrients from a variety of sources.
