If you’re not careful, breakfast can turn into the same thing every day- and you will probably get bored and uninspired by your choice of food in the mornings. Here are some vegan alternatives that are way more exciting than toast.
Dorset Cereals Bircher Muesli Raspberry and Blackcurrant
With warmer weather on the horizon and overnight oats continuing to be the most popular breakfast option, Dorset Cereals’ Bircher Muesli mix is the perfect choice for keeping on trend this summer. The Raspberry & Blackcurrant (vegan friendly) - mix provides easy-eating, light comfort food that can be enjoyed throughout the sunnier seasons.
The Raspberry and Blackcurrant Bircher Muesli mix oozes a strong fruity taste, combining sliced apple, dried raspberries and blackcurrants that will tantalise taste buds and is high in vital anti-oxidants.
The Bircher Muesli mix can be used as a base for any type of recipe – whether fruity or nutty. The finely milled oats and dried fruit can be soaked with plant-based milk, to achieve a creamy rich taste, or for the more adventurous food palate, apple juice creates a sweeter fresh flavour. Just to add texture, simply top with fresh fruit, seeds and yoghurt.
Of The Earth Power Pots
Porridge pots with a difference, Of The Earth’s Power Pots’ ingredients list reads like the shelf of a health food store, with baobab powder, goji berries, lucuma, beetroot powder, spirulina, matcha, maca, and cacao being just a few of the superfoods making an appearance.
The result is a nutritional powerhouse of a porridge pot, which not only offers a healthy start to the day, but, being jammed with high quality protein, healthy fats and fibre, also makes the perfect post gym recovery snack or mid work day pick me up.
It’s not just the ingredients list that’s super either, the pots have a taste to match. Using gluten free fine oats as their base means that by simply adding hot or cold water (no milk needed) you create a creamy cereal that’s ready to go. With three different flavours in the range, Power of Green, with green tea, spirulina and barley grass, Power of Red, with strawberry, goji and beetroot, and Power of Brown, with cacao and maca, Of The Earth redefine ‘porridge’ and there’s something to satisfy everyone’s taste buds.
The pots, which are certified with the Coeliac Society, are pretty super when it comes to the environment too. Registered organic and coming in recyclable tubs with a bio spoon, which can be thrown on the compost heap when you’re done, the pots are handmade in the UK in a factory powered purely by solar power.
Whether you’re looking at their ingredients, taste or eco credentials, it’s pretty hard to argue the Power Pots don’t deserve the super tag!

"I have been making Granola for over twenty years now, refining and adapting the recipe as I went along. This granola is the result, and takes into account the many requests I received for a wheat free version. I’ve lost count of the number of cereals I’ve tried over the years and, for me, my granola is the only one that satisfies me so I’m not reaching for the biscuit barrel by mid-morning."
"Gently toasted pecans were chosen for this Granola for their lovely warm, golden taste, and are balanced with black treacle for an added rich, dark flavour. This Granola was category winner at the Great Taste Awards in 2009, so you know it’s good!!"
"I have developed this product for the entire family, not just the body builders. Protein is necessary for growing youngsters as well as the elderly who need to protect themselves from muscle loss. A single 50g serving will give you 27% of your daily protein needs, but it still has a the top-quality taste and texture which made lizi’s famous. I have only used vegetable protein, mainly from GM-free soya so that like all my granolas this is suitable for vegetarians and vegans."
