The production of plastic waste during breakfast may seem inevitable, but think again. Here are my favorite plastic-free breakfasts:
Oatmeal made from oats bought in bulk. Rolled oats are quicker to cook, but steel cut oats are more nutritious and have a chewier texture when cooked. Add things like chopped apples, raisins, maple syrup, cinnamon and honey to add variety.
Cereal purchased in bulk with a cloth bag.
Homemade granola with almond milk or milk from a glass bottle. Some stores also sell granola in bulk if you’re too busy to make it yourself.
Homemade waffles and pancakes made with homemade buttermilk. Coconut flour pancakes are good too. Ditch frozen pancakes and waffles. When I make waffles, I freeze any leftovers. When I want waffles for breakfast but I don’t have time to make them, I pop the homemade frozen ones in my toaster.
Make your own smoothies instead of buying them in those little plastic bottles. The store-bought ones, aside from being in plastic bottles, are filled with additives and lots of sugar. Instead of buying frozen fruit for smoothies in plastic bags, I cut up fresh fruits and freeze them in glass jars. Another beverage I like to drink in the morning is orange juice with buttermilk.
