Everyone knows that a good breakfast is the best way to start your morning and set you up for the day. You deserve more than a cold slice of toast eaten on the Tube platform and you know it. So, rather than making do with another manky banana, why not grab a bag of Nutri-Brex’s 5 Ways Granola and give yourself a head start? As well as being gluten-free, low in sugar, rich in healthy fats and free of artificial additives and preservatives, these clever toasted cereals are more versatile than an Olympic decathlete.
Both varieties – Hazelnut, Coconut and Quinoa; and Honey, Almonds and Seeds – are ripe for sprucing up, so you can tuck in to the kind of breakfast that’ll leave you feeling great all the way up until lunchtime. Given 5 Ways’ versatility, we thought we’d put together a selection of quick and easy breakfast ideas for you to try, but the creative possibilities don’t stop here. Thank us later…

1) The Super Smoothie
Smoothies are brilliant. Just whack a banana, some blueberries, a few spinach leaves, milk and a handful of 5 Ways Granola into a blender. It might wake your flatmates up, but who cares when the result is this good?
2) The Breakfast Bowl
Breakfast bowls are great because they’re so simple to knock up. There’s nothing more to it than layering some Greek yoghurt with 5 Ways and whatever toppings take your fancy that morning. We love a tropical bowl, with goji berries, coconut flakes and mango.
3) The Granola/Porridge Double Whammy
Bored of the usual bowl of porridge? Impossible, surely, but if that is the case, why not live a little and sprinkle some 5 Ways on your oats for an extra layer of flavour. Or you could make porridge with your 5 Ways, which will be even more flavoursome.
4) The Granola Bircher
Finally, save some time in the morning with a breakfast you can put together before you go to bed. Add a generous dollop of yoghurt, a splash of apple juice and a quarter of an apple (grated) to your 5 Ways Granola. Finish the mix with 100ml of milk, give it a good mix and pop it in the fridge. By the time you rise and shine, there’ll be a delicious bowl of bircher waiting for you.
5) The Banana-Pop
Bananas are brilliant. They’re healthy but also make a great treat. To make a batch of weekend-friendly treats, just slide a wooden lolly stick into a halved banana, dip your half in Greek yoghurt and then roll it in a generous helping of 5 Ways Granola. Bung it in the freezer for two hours and you’re good to go.
