Carla’s Happy Now Recipes


Here are my favourite easy Breakfast Recipes.

I love to start my day with a fresh green juice then a few hours later a protein smoothie.

In my fresh juice, I just use a bunch of celery (it’s delish) and has so many awesome health benefits.

Gluten Free Grain Free Salted Caramel Porridge

  • 1 cup activated buckwheat (or buckinis!)

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 ½ cups Almond milk

  • 2 tablespoons organic honey

  • Cinnamon and your favourite topping

  • In a saucepan on medium heat add the buckinis, water and allow to absorb.  It should take about 5 minutes.

  • Add the milk, honey and cook until buckinis become nice and soft.  It should take around 10 - 15 minutes.  Be sure not to boil.

  • Pour into a cute bowl, top with your favourite toppings.  We use cacao nibs, roasted macadamias and a little extra cinnamon.

  • Super easy.  SUPER yum!

  • 1 cup (250ml) almond milk or coconut water

  • 1 cup ice cubes

  • 1 teaspoon Dutch Cinnamon
