When I woke up today I felt a bit tense/nervous because I had an interview for an internship later that morning. I’m not going to say which company I applied for because it is not guaranteed that I got the position so let’s not spill anything too early. But one thing is for sure, I was very excited to go to my first ‘proper’ interview (as opposed to casual bar job interviews or things like that) but I was also very anxious. I will be over the moon if I do get the internship though because the company works in the field of health and wellbeing and is tied up with charity work as well – couldn’t have wished for a more ideal workplace that matches my interests. So fingers crossed!!
But let’s not get too side tracked! The reason for which I wanted to write a blog post is because I made a delicious breakfast to fuel my body up with as much goodness as possible before my interview. Inspired from smoothie recipes from The Blonde Vegan and from the muesli I once had at Pure Wholefoods in Manly, this rather big breakfast is ideal to begin your day in a positive manner. I can guarantee that you will feel nice and refreshed after such a yummy dairy-free muesli.
Essentially, my breakfast comprised of a fruit salad with muesli but instead of having yogurt I blended some fruits (like I would when I make a smoothie) and I used the mixture as my yogurt – the result was fantastic to say the least!
Here is the recipe: (this is just a rough recipe, you can play around with the ingredients as much as you want, it is just to give you an idea!)
For the fruit blend
– 1/2 banana
– small handful of frozen raspberries
– small handful or frozen blueberries
– 1/4 apple
– 1 tsp flax seed meal
– 1 tsp green powder
– 1 kale leaf
– 1/2 cup of coconut water
– 1/2 cup of almond milk
Blend all the ingredients together in a blender! Note that this will give you quite a large amount of mixture so you can use the left overs to sip on like a normal smoothie
Fruit salad and muesli
You can use what ever fruit you like really but I personally used:
– 3/4 apple (note that it was a really small apple)
– 1/4 banana
– fresh blueberries
– fresh raspberries
Place the muesli at the bottom of your bowl and then spread the fruit on top. Use the apple to segment the bowl in two parts so that once you pour the fruit blend it won’t go everywhere.
Tips: you can add some roasted almonds or coconut flakes on top for an extra crunch ;)
