A healthy wake up!

By Pares Tailor
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, yet also one that people feel the least inspired by. It’s easy to fall into the habit of eating the same thing each morning – or, worse still, being so busy you skip eating all together.

Thankfully, Deliciously Ella’s Ella Mills and her partner and husband Matthew have introduced some new tasty options to keep breakfast exciting. And, what’s more, the Deliciously Ella Original Granola (500g) and Bircher Muesli (500g) are on offer – buy one, get one half price – in selected Holland & Barrett stores, until 18 March.

Eat Well

The Original Granola is based on the granola served in Ella’s three London delis and made with baked oats, nuts, seeds, maple syrup, cinnamon, raisins and coconut. The Bircher Muesli is a favourite go-to breakfast for Ella. It’s ready to eat and has sweet pieces of chewy apple, raspberries, and sunflower seeds. It goes soft and creamy within seconds of milk being added. Both are gluten and dairy free, vegan-friendly and made with simple, natural ingredients, with no stabilisers, additives or preservatives. They come in handy re-sealable bags too.

Since Ella launched her blog in 2012 after being diagnosed with the rare illness Postural Tachycardia Syndrome, she adopted a plant-based diet and began experimenting with recipes to make eating well more delicious. Now she shares everything she knows through her best-selling cookbooks, delis and a retail range.
