Granola is one of my favourite ways to start the day, and this version with peanut butter and quinoa makes breakfast even better! | Stay Alive and Cooking

Yes yes yes, I’ve said this a million times: I love breakfast. I bake some fresh granola almost every week, as it’s my boyfriends favourite breakfast with some yoghurt! His second favourite breakfast is bread with peanut butter, which inspired me to play around with the flavours and create this yummy granola variety.

Homemade granola

  Home made granola | Stay Alive and Cooking Good day!
As I mentioned before: breakfast recipes are my favourite recipes to share. And I have so many! Granola for example, which I started making a few months ago. Not only does it taste very nice in a bowl of yoghurt in the morning, it makes your whole house smell nice, too!

It does not take up that much work, you just need to find the right balance. I just keep tasting in between, but if you are more a “recipe kinda person” I bet you’ll be able to measure your way through it in no time. Trust me, once you taste this granola you’ll crave it for breakfast every day…

Almond or rice milk and the nut milk bag

Homemade almond or rice milk | Stay Alive and Cooking

Did I ever tell you that I grew up on a farm? Even though I live on my own now I still have the same routines: waking up real early, milking the almonds… I’m kidding. Of course. But I did make my own almond milk! And today I tried rice milk too. I will include the simple recipes I used!

(For the record: I hate getting up real early in the morning and I never had to milk anything at home. No cows in sight!)

Vegetable/herb cheese omelette & omelette struggles | budget-proof challenge


In my weakly meal planning I always leave the last day for dealing with vegetable leftovers. You can make them into delicious pasta dishes, this simple dinner oven dish or a great stir-fry dish… But today I’ll share with you a great way to turn them into an omelette with a twist.

I always have some eggs in my pantry as they are so versatile. Over the years I’ve levelled up my egg-game by turning them into great scrambled eggs, shakshuka in delicious tomato sauce, omelettes, oven baked eggs or cakes. (Wait, what? That’s not the same thing!) As I’m getting busy with school again I’ll be sure to share more of these dishes: simple and quick dinners are the best!

Quick and healthy breakfast: oat/apple-cinnamon pancake with smoothie


I haven’t posted any breakfast recipes lately and I’m sorry about that: breakfast is usually my favourite! I decided to make it up to you by uploading a double recipe today. One for a really simple oat flour pancake (it didn’t take me longer than preparing a regular bowl of oatmeal!) and a delicious yet healthy veg-fruity smoothie.

We all have those days in which we simply have no clue what to eat for breakfast. For me it’s easy, I always toss some ingredients in a bowl of oatmeal and I’m good to go for a couple of hours, but if you’re more a sandwich kinda person I can imagine it gets boring quite soon. That’s why you should mix it up every once in a while: with a simple pancake for example!

This is still part of the budget proof month of course, so it is not only a quick, easy and healthy breakfast but an affordable one too.
