Zero Waste Breakfast Ideas

Zero Waste Breakfast Ideas

A few simple switches can make for a completely Zero Waste breakfast, or at least one with dramatically less waste. I found breakfast was by far the easiest meal to make zero waste.

Zero waste living has the tendency to be super duper time consuming. We go though this mini check list each time we leave the house:

The 'whatever is in the cupboard' Granola

The 'whatever is in the cupboard' Granola

Oh, granola, we love you. Filling, yummy, delicious, granola... 

You can use granola to make cereal bars or overnight oats and it can be used to finish whatever you've got in your pantry.

Those last few hazelnuts hiding at the back, those oats that are obstructing the space of other goodness, seeds that simply taste boring on their own – whatever you want!

Plus – our granola recipe uses up the pulp from our Apple Juice recipe and the nut meal from our Almond Milk. If you have these two to hand, pull them out of the freezer the night before you want to make granola and if they were chilling in the fridge, bring them to room temperature before you start the recipe. 

Haven't made these recipes before or don't want to? Fear not! We've made some notes about possible adjustments below.
