Find yourself scurrying out the door every morning on an empty stomach?

Us too. And we’re kind of over it. Winter is coming, and we need all the goodness we can get. So we met up with Mrs Ella Mills – better known as Deliciously Ella to many who’ve been following her plant-based phenomenon since the very beginning.

If you’re looking to shake things up at breakfast, but still make it to work on time, forget setting the alarm earlier. Just take a look the Deliciously Ella food range. You’ll find the entire range of over 14 products on the health and wellness aisle at SuperValu. Exquisite taste AND plenty of choice – it’s life on-the-go made easy and healthy.

Nutty granolas, bircher mueslis, oat bars and energy balls – they’re SO divine just as they are (and they’re perfect for any time of day!)

So we asked Deliciously Ella herself (who in the past truly struggled with healthy eating) what makes for the perfect (and easy-as-pie) breakfast. She gave us her tips to make brekkie that bit more exciting.

“The bircher muesli is literally oats, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, raspberry, apple pieces and raisins – that’s it. There’s no sugars, no preservatives, no additives – nothing. You can pour in some almond milk, coconut milk, yogurt, let it sit for a minute and it goes so creamy and thick.

“The nutty granola I’m a really big fan of. Cashews, almonds, it’s really, really yummy. You could make a bowl of yogurt with the nutty granola, sliced banana, almond butter or peanut butter. Kind of layer on lots of bits and pieces you have in your cupboard. It will taste delicious.”

(Ugh – get in our belly.)

What does Ella herself do for brekkie? The above, plus a green smoothie with very simple ingredients – spinach, banana, almond butter, almond milk and oats. (Now there’s an idea.)

And if during the day we hit that afternoon slump – she thought of that one too. Enter – the Deliciously Ella Energy Balls. Choose from almond and blueberry, cashew and ginger, cacao and almond, hazelnut and raisin, plus coconut. Oodles of options to tickle our taste buds and perfect to pop in the handbag when on the go.

Now excuse us while we munch on our our cacao and almond health treat. (NOM.)
