Revitalising Breakfast Bowl

Feeling a bit rough after ringing in the New Year? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. New Year’s Day hangovers are almost as common as the resolutions we make (and sometimes break). But, let’s focus on something we can definitely achieve: nourishing our bodies back to feeling fabulous!

Understanding Hangovers:

First off, let’s break down what’s going on inside us after a night of celebration. Hangovers are like the body’s way of saying, “Hey, you depleted me of water, vitamins, and I’m inflamed!” Yes, that headache and fatigue are courtesy of dehydration, vitamin loss, and your body’s inflammatory response.

Nutritional Remedies:

To bounce back, we need to replenish what’s lost. This means hydrating, and packing in those electrolytes, vitamins, and some much-needed healthy fats. And guess what? We can do all of this with a delicious breakfast bowl!

Recipe: Revitalising Breakfast Bowl

Let’s get your day started with a bowl full of goodness:

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup cooked quinoa, oats or granola of your choice (your grain base, packed with energy)
  • 1 banana, sliced (for natural sugars and a potassium boost)
  • A handful of berries (think antioxidants and vitamins)
  • A dollop of Greek yogurt or your favourite vegan alternative (hello, probiotics and protein)
  • A generous drizzle of Wilson’s Coconut Oil (for its hydrating and anti-inflammatory properties)
  • A sprinkle of nuts and seeds (for that crunch and added healthy fats)

Instructions:

  • Start with your base of quinoa or oats in a bowl. Both are great for gentle, sustained energy release, which is exactly what you need right now.
  • Top it with banana slices and berries. Bananas are a hangover’s best friend, thanks to their potassium. Berries? They’re little vitamin bombs.
  • Add that dollop of Greek yogurt or vegan alternative. This isn’t just for creaminess; it’s adding protein and soothing your digestive system.
  • Now for the magic touch – drizzle generously with Wilson’s Coconut Oil. Why? Coconut oil is not just for flavour; it’s a super hydrator and helps reduce inflammation.
  • Finish off with a sprinkle of nuts and seeds. They’re not just for texture; they’re packed with proteins and healthy fats that your body is craving.

Hydration Tips:

Alongside your breakfast bowl, don’t forget to drink plenty of water. Herbal teas, like ginger or peppermint, are also great for soothing the stomach and rehydrating.

Starting your new year with this bowl of goodness is more than just a remedy; it’s setting the tone for a year of mindful eating and taking care of your body. Here’s to a year of great health, wonderful food, and making choices that make us feel good inside out. Happy New Year! 🌟🥣🎉
