It’s National Breakfast Week (24–30 January 2016) and SLOAN! favourite Hunter 486 will be offering complimentary fruit or vegetable smoothies with its healthy breakfasts served between 7–11am.

To celebrate National Breakfast Week Head Chef Gary Durrant at Hunter 486 offers his top tips on how you can eat a healthier breakfast.
1. Have a quick breakfast
It’s easy to skip breakfast when you are in a rush but by missing out on breakfast you can increase your calorie intake as you snack more throughout the day. Have a breakfast that you can enjoy on the go such as fresh fruit, nuts, seeds and berries with green or black tea.
2. Plan and Prepare
Plan and prepare your breakfast to avoid eating unhealthy food. Go for easy but healthy options such as porridge, wholegrain bread or cereals or try your hand at making your own homemade granola.
3. Go for egg whites
Eggs are a great source of nutrients and so easy and quick to make. Egg whites are full of protein as well as being low-fat and cholesterol-free which is why our healthy breakfast includes an egg white omelette.
4. Make a smoothie
You can make healthy smoothies at home – you just need fresh fruit, yoghurt and a blender. Go for low sugar fruits, such as berries and experiment by adding greens such as spinach. You’ll be surprised how much spinach you can add without changing the taste of a smoothie!
5. Go for something different
Cook a bowl of brown rice the night before and in the morning add honey, raisins, apple and milk with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Brown rice provides energy and is a great alternative to cereal.
6. Have pizza for breakfast?!
A slice of last night’s pizza isn’t the most nutritious breakfast so instead try bread with low fat cream cheese, tomatoes, a pinch of salt and pepper and a drizzle of oil.
Located close to Hyde Park and Oxford Street, Hunter 486 is the perfect breakfast venue before hitting the shops or going for a brisk walk in the best-known of the Royal Parks. Click here to read the SLOAN! Review.
