Super Breakfast Yoghurt Pots w/ Paleo Granola (V, GF)

As much as I looooooove porridge (especially when it tastes like cake!), there’s only so much I can have before I get bored and start crying for literally ANYTHING ELSE fo breakfast.

Which resulted in me having some rather unusual options lately. Sushi or ham & pickle sandwich at 9am anyone?

No? Then maybe those Super Breakfast Yoghurt Pots will be more your thing…

The whole ‘Super’ breakfast thing started when I spotted The Collective’s new ‘Super Berries flavour in the dairy aisle of my local supermarket.

I love The Collective’s thick ‘n’ creamy yoghurt, I love obscure berries, and a bit of ‘super’ in my life never hurts, so in my basket the tub went.

Now, The Collective’s disclaimer clearly states that the yoghurt wouldn’t give me superpowers. But there’s no harm in trying, is there?

Worse case scenario, I would be stuck with a gigantic pot of delicious, berry compote-swirled yoghurt. Which is a situation I’d volunteer as tribute for any day of the week, to be honest.

But just in case, I thought I’d better my upcoming superpower odds. So I paired the yoghurt with more fresh super berries and a bunch of other superfood bits.

I combined the latter into the most delicious paleo granola (recipe below), then layered it all into individual pots.

I also may or may not have shoved a few spoonful of warm, golden granola in my mouth in the process…

But the fact is, the resulting breakfast yoghurt pots were everything any on-the-go breakfast should be. Filling, satisfying and oh-so-super-good!

I was just about to give up hope of finding a good salad bar in the capital, when I stumbled on Vital Ingredient.

With 17 shops across London, the mini salad-bar chain offers made-to-order salads, customized to the customer’s exact specifications.

The concept is pretty simple: you choose a ‘base’ (from a choice of leaves of carbs), then you select additional ingredients, and a sauce.

And there are LOADS of ingredients to choose from: all the usual suspects of course, including sweet corn, bacon, chicken, tomatoes etc., a well as some less usual ones such as buckwheat, tortilla crisps or olives.

There plenty of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options available and it’s basically any salad-lover’s dream come true.

The full menu’s available here but the rule of thumb is: if you can think of it, Vital probably has it.

I went for a medium size salad (they also have larger ones in case you’re starving!) with all of my favourites (spinach leaves, tomato chunks, bacon, mozzarella, olives and Ranch dressing) and it was delicious!

Fresh, light and healthy but still filling, it made for a perfect on-the-go lunch!
