You know, 2 posts ago, I told you all that the 1st fresh Belgian strawberries are in Season, yeah! I made these delicious Raw Dreamy Creamy Strawberry Smoothies & now, I have a new favourite breakfast of the moment, being all Gluten-Free too,… Check it all out!
Doesn’t this bowl of Gluten-Free Deliciousness looks incredibly tasty???? Can you guess or see what ingredients are in it???
This breakfast is not vegan because I used to top my breakfast with a special ingredient called bee pollen,…so technically it is not vegan! You can’t leave them out because you really need them in here! :) What are bee pollen, I hear you say,…Bee pollen is collected by bees from flowering plants and formed into granules. Every variety of flower in the universe puts forth a dusting of pollen.
Bee pollen is the food of the young bee and ithas about 40% protein. It is considered one of nature’s most completely nourishing foods. So bee pollen are 100% natural & considered a superfood! It has nearly all nutrients required by humans.
Pollen are rich in energy, regulating & purging! Pollen of flowers contain proteins, vitamins like the B-vitamins, enzymes & minerals.
It is especially beneficial for the extra nutritional and energy needs of athletes and those recovering from illness. It is a natural antidote for fighting allergies particularly hay fever and sinusitis.
Research shows that pollen counteracts the signs of aging and increases both mental and physical capability.
Bee pollen is more rich in proteins than any animal source. It has more amino acids than beef, eggs, or cheese of equal weight. Bee pollen is particularly concentrated in all elements necessary for life. Not to mention, very delicious! One of the most interesting facts about bee pollen is that it cannot be synthesized in a laboratory.
It is important to recognize that 1 teaspoon dose of pollen takes one bee working eight hours a day for one month to gather!!!
To see if you are allergic, try 1 bee pollen granule. Most people try to consume 1 teaspoon per day. If you are not allergic to it, you can increase your intake to 1 tablespoon per day! 1 tablespoon = 5 gr of protein!! Good, hey? It is best kept in the fridge.
It has one downside. It is very expensive, I think. I bought my 250 gr pot in my local bio-planet & it costed me: 11.85€!!
So, now you know that it is good for you, even great for you! Now, l hope you try this lovely colourful good-for-you energizing breakfast, all Gluten-free too! :)
Recipe: For 1 big bowl of delicious breakfast
330 gr vegan yoghurt, a bit sweetened, I used Alpro
1/2 cup medium gluten-free oat flakes
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
6 large ripe juicy strawberries, hulled, each cut up into 2, see pictures above!
1 tablespoon bee pollen
1. Take a larger pasta or breakfast bowl. Add your vegan yoghurt in the middle & spread it out a bit using the back of a spoon. Top it with your Gluten-free oats. Scatter your sunflower seeds on top of the oats & around the yoghurt, in a circle. Arrange your strawberry halves, on top of it all. Finally, scatter your bee pollen on top of the strawberries & around the edges of your bowl! Enjoy!
