Breakfast epiphanies

Your ultimate healthy and wholesome grain breakfast guide

It’s no news that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet, why do so many of us fall into a habit of skipping it? Some of us are short for time; others are strapped for cash and would rather hold off until lunch, and the rest of us? Well, maybe we’ve just managed to crawl out of bed let alone awoken our appetites.

However, when looking into a recent study carried out by the American Heart Association, we discovered some information that will no doubt make you want to swap the snooze button for a 10-minute morning session in the kitchen instead.

Researchers from Columbia University said that both the time and frequency of meals are linked to risk factors for a variety of conditions including heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, blood glucose levels, obesity, and reduced insulin sensitivity. In simpler terms, the time we eat our meal is equally as important as what we eat.

About PlantBased

First things first — I hope you’re having an incredible summer. Just because autumn is on the horizon don’t stop enjoying every moment that is left to enjoy the Great British outdoors. There’s something about the later part of summer that makes me want to gather my friends and family around a campfire to enjoy an array of toasted treats and fire roasted foods. Whether it’s at the beach or outside your back door, sitting beneath the stars as another summer day draws to an end can feel euphoric. Before long we will all be wrapped up in winter coats and wishing that we could relive those special summer moments. So to encourage you to set up camp, sing some of your favourite songs, toast some tempeh skewers and dig into some gooey s’mores we’ve a whole collection of recipes dedicated to cooking fireside. In this issue we’ve taken a closer look at the sweet potato and the multiple ways it is used in the kitchen beyond its original potato format. Don’t knock it, until you’ve tried. Trust me. In between all the sweet and indulgent treats (there’s a lot of them), we’ve also delved into the nutritional side of following a plant-based diet in a bid to highlight that the benefits of eating plants isn’t just to enhance the health of the planet — but us too. From an in-depth interview with The Plant Powered Personal Trainer (aka Adam Stansbury), to Food for Thought with Heather Mills and a one-on-one chat with the blogger Laura-Jane Koers about her latest cookbook — we want to transform negative connotations associated with vegan nutrition. Plus, we’ve dedicated this month’s Special Report to vegan pregnancy, whilst our Nutritionist’s Notebook explores the notorious super veg, avocado. Oh, and whilst we are on the topic of superfoods, we’ve put together an ultimate healthy and wholesome grain breakfast guide packed with ancient oat recipes (including chia). Enjoy the issue. And enjoy the last of the warm summer sun.
