For this recipe you`ll need a blender and a melon of your choice. This Smoothie is very suitable as a colorful start in your day. To eat fruit in the mornings is a very good idea, because fruits are easily digested on an empty stomach. In addition to that, because of their high water and fruit sugar content, melons belong to the most easily digested food all together. That´s why it is recommended to eat melons all alone without any other food added.
Now lets blend it!
Good Morning Melon Smoothie
1 melon (I used a netted melon)
1/3 cup water
1 pinch of salt
Slice the melon in two. Remove the core and extract the melon pulp (you can use a spoon for that). Blend everything together and enjoy!
That was very fast.
It`s time to present to you the incredible coconut inspired chickpeas breakfast bowl. The name is very long, I know. And it could have been even longer, if I decided to put all the main performers of this bowl into it. But you can honor their play by looking at the pictures ;)
This bowl is full of protein and I like it especially, because it tastes hearty and sweet at the same time.
Coconut inspired Chickpeas Breakfast Bowl
1/2 cup chickpeas (sprouted and cooked, or from the tin)
1 small avocado
2 tbsp coconut flakes
1 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp cumin
dash of salt
Slice banana and avocado into bite-sized pieces, mix together with the chickpeas and the coconut milk. Sprinkle with Coconut flakes and cacao nibs and season to your liking.
If you have never eaten buckwheat yet, you could try it.
In this recipe it is used in its sprouted form, but you can also cook it.
The name buckwheat is somehow confusing, because it is not really among the grains. It does not contain bran and germ, but it tastes quite like a grain. You find 15 – 20 % of protein, a good amount of fiber, B vitamins, potassium, iron, calcium, manganese and phosphorus in it.
So if you have some trouble digesting wheat or oats, buckwheat could be a good alternative.

Slice the apple and banana into bite-sized pieces. Combine all ingredients and enjoy.
