At Spoon Cereals, we have been eating an increasingly vegetarian and plant-based diet over the last few years. We’ve noticed that it’s not just a change that we’ve made to our eating habits, but a trend that is growing everywhere.
When you’re hungry and need a sweet snack, we know it’s easy to go and grab that chocolate bar sitting at the bottom of your cupboard. But popcorn is such a quick, easy and cheap snack to prepare at home – and much healthier too.
Annie, aka breakfastnbrunch, is a self-confessed breakfast-loving foodie. We asked Annie to put together a special recipe for us for Pancake Day as we’ve been admiring her wonderful breakfast creations on Instagram since Spoon began. Here’s what Annie had to say:
Early weekday starts during the bleak winter months require warming bowls of porridge to keep our energy levels up. When the alarm goes off and hibernating under your duvet feels like the more attractive option, we think about what’s in store for breakfast to motivate our mornings.
nibs etc. is about upcycling leftovers and creating no waste recipes; either from leftovers, or ingredients/odds and ends of ingredients that might otherwise go to waste. I can’t stand to waste food without having tried to re-give it life, or ‘upcycle’ it, at least a few more times. And these I call Bestovers: Best, leftovers. [Spread the word, hashtag away, go crazy].
It will come as no surprise to hear that at Spoon we love those morning rituals. Before anything else, there’s only one thing on our mind when we wake up. Whether it’s bircher, porridge, muesli, granola - you name it, we’ll eat it.
We recently tasked our friends, Charlie and Jess from The Travel Project, the world’s first Instagram-powered trip to seek out and provide insider knowledge on the best breakfasts in the city of Mumbai. Here’s what they had to say:
This month saw the launch of our new cookbook, a collection of simple and nourishing breakfast bowl recipes written by Spoon founders, Annie and Jonny, as well as some of our friends within the creative community.
