Hello good day everyone!! So today, is a big day with lots of events happening!! First of all, as the title says it’s 4th of July!! Biggest American Holiday of the year! Americans all over the country are celebrating today with their friends and families and well, I have seen lots of really cool recipe ideas popping up in the blogosphere with the Red-White-Blue theme.
And what else is happening? Well, there is a very important game of the FIFA Soccer World Cup happening this afternoon: Brazil vs. Colombia, and I am nervous, because my Mr. Superfoodista is one of the biggest soccer fans there is and since he is also very Brazilian, he will be rooting feverishly for his team today. I really hope they will progress to the semi final round (sorry Colombians)!
And lastly, there is another round of Fiesta Friday starting today that I have the honor to host with the fabulous Margherita from La Petite Casserole and of course the lady of the house, Angie from The Novice Gardener. To join the party, please check out this link. It’s really a fantastic event, where you can see a vast selection of recipes and other great ideas for the weekend! You can contribute with anything that you think seems fit for a Fiesta – and maybe even the 4th of July! 😉
Well, so as everyone knows, for a big day like this, you need a Breakfast of Champions! So let me share with you today some of the breakfasts I created in the past for my instagram account, all with the patriotic Red, White and/ or Blue colors! Of course all loaded with Superfoods! 😉 The above picture by the way, is a fruit salad, served in half a coconut.
Blend frozen Berries and milk of your choice to a thick smoothie, top with blueberries and pomegranate seeds! Berries are all super rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C!
Just layer Greek yogurt, granola and blueberries – rich in protein, fiber and antioxidants too! Add some maple syrup or honey too sweeten if you like. Top with some coconut flakes.
Overnight Oats with chia seeds, cacao and a hot berry coulis
Just soak 4 tbsp old-fashioned oats, 2 tbsp raw cacao powder and 2 tbsp chia seeds with 1/2 – 1 cup of almond milk over night. In the morning add the coulis (which is just blended berries with 1 tbsp of maple syrup), top with the rest of the overnight oats, decorate with some berries. Rich in fiber, antioxidants and protein!
Greek yogurt bowl with berry fruit salad and hemp seeds
Greek yogurt, add fresh berries of your choice, then sprinkle with hemp seeds. Rich in protein, antioxidants and healthy fats.
Home-made fruit yogurt
Mix Greek yogurt with a fruit of your choice, blend well, sweeten with some maple syrup to your liking, top with berries. Rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C and protein.
And well, should you still crave for more Red-White-Blue inspiration, check out this fantastic compilation from the Foodiecrush. It’s from last year, but the recipe collection is more than timely and simply wonderful!
So to my American readers, I wish now a wonderful and happy 4th of July celebration! To everyone enjoy your weekend and hope you are just going to enjoy it, no matter what you are planning.
Also, on a small side note, as mentioned previously, I am making some updates currently and it could be that my blog will be offline for a couple of days the coming week. I’ll be back however, hopefully with everything sorted out and a special post to celebrate my upcoming 1 year bloganniversary! 😉
