Breaking the fast should not be considered in a hurry when its Your first meal of the day

Breaking the fast should not be considered in a hurry. This meal should be the most anticipated and thought out one of your day. If in a rush, your body does not really benefit and does not get the message that it has been fed.
Because of my varied working hours, I prepare this meal ahead of time, with care.

Breakfast on the run in a wide neck glass jar

  • 80ml raw rolled oats
  • 20ml chia seed
  • 20ml almonds, ground
  • Spice – 5ml each ground cinnamon, ginger.
  • ½ cup Rooibos/green/regular tea
  • Banana, ripe (I like over-ripe)
  • Kefir or plain unsweetened yoghurt.


  1. Place the first four ingredients into the wide neck jar.
  2. Add tea of choice and allow to soak for a few hours/overnight.
  3. Later, add sliced banana and some yoghurt/kefir.
  4. Whizz with a stick blender until blended. Add more yoghurt/kefir to fill up to about 500ml.
  5. Blend well – I use the handle of the wooden spoon to do this final blend.
  6. Seal the jar and refrigerate it till needed.
  7. The mixture should be nice and thick.
  8. This is often enough to spread to lunch as well.
  9. Filling and satisfying.
  10. Cinnamon and oats stabilize blood glucose and ginger has warming and anti-inflammatory properties.
