Add a Bite of Colour to Mealtimes

It’s easy to get stuck into repetitive patterns with food, especially with the pace of today’s modern life. So why not add a little more variety back in with something as simple as colour burst? Not only will it look better but there are health benefits to be found in the world of colourful foodstuffs.

Quick breakfast
It’s the most important meal of the day, and often the most rushed. So why not try something a little different – whether you’re eating cereal or porridge or a quick shake.

Berries are always a great bet for a burst of bright colour, and they’ve got vital vitamins as well. And the same goes if you’re putting together a quick shake to get you going in the morning, throw in some fruit or berries to add that little bit extra.

Pancakes
They might take a little more time but pancakes are always welcome, especially when you can add your own tasty ingredients.

Sugar, lemon and butter are the old reliable but why not experiment. Fruit can make for a tasty combination and you could even plop on some yoghurt for a unique taste that has its own health benefits.

Here’s a quick and simple recipe.

Belgian Waffles
Let’s take things up a notch with Belgian Waffles, which are guaranteed to give you the boost you need to get through the morning.

We’ve got a top recipe here which is truly mouthwatering, combining the crispiness of the waffles with a hint of syrup and the smoothness of fresh strawberries.

And make sure your waffles are perfect every time with the Safe No Mess Waffle Maker.

Ham and Cheese Omelette
A classic, and you can make it as healthy as you feel like with light cheese options or some meat alternatives, or couple with a nice green salad.

This recipe is a great place to start and as always you can add your own unique touches for a colour boost – why not try a superhealthy extra like spinach.

 

The Healthy Option
Speaking of healthy, there are always ways to make food that’s tasty and good for you. It just takes a bit of imagination!

This recipe gives you the goodness of natural yoghurt. Let’s be honest, it can be a bit tough to eat on its own, so get some nice texture with wholegrain oats and a splash of taste and colour thanks to whatever fruit you fancy. We’re a fan of berries both straw and rasp.

These recipes and tips will make your meals easier than ever, and Harvey Norman has you covered when it comes to all the appliances you’ll need.
