You can choose:

  • A salad of your favorite fruits
  • Almond milk with oatmeal, nuts and flax seeds muesli.
  • Almond milk (or any other nuts) is very easy to prepare: put 100g of overnight hydrated nuts and 1L of water in a blender and mix for 2-3 minutes (5 minutes if the mixer has less than 600W). The chia or cereal pudding doesn’t need to be strained, so it will save you a lot of time.
