The Sanderson Hotel in London has teamed up with model Danielle Copperman and her inspiring quinoa-based breakfast brand, Qnola, to create a Wake Up Well breakfast menu. If you haven’t tried Qnola yet then you must. It is one of my absolute favorite quick, easy and healthy breakfasts. I personally love the Cacao one, but there are a variety of yummy flavors. (You can shop them at the bottom of this post.)
Back to the healthy breakfast event of the season… The Wake Up Well Breakfast will run throughout September, 2016 in honour of London Fashion Week, which is located just moments away from the boutique hotel. Perfect for you fellow LFW attendees.
After finding it hard to decide what to eat to stay in shape, model and entrepreneur Danielle studied nutrition and biology, documenting her discoveries via her hugely popular blog, Model Mange Tout, and eventually creating Qnola. As the only cereal alternative in the world made primarily from quinoa, Qnola is high in protein, fibre and antioxidants and free from gluten, grains, dairy and refined sugar. And it’s seriously delicious too.
“Fashion week season can be a stressful time, with schedules so tight they don’t allow for things like proper lunch breaks. During the season, many simply rely on insufficient catering and sugary snacks to keep going. Most backstage provisions are nutritionally substandard, but at a time of high stress and high energy expenditure, what our bodies and minds really crave is real food and powerful ingredients that offer natural benefits. The Wake Up Well menu at Sanderson will offer guests the chance to experience the fashion month feeling and start the day right, even if they aren’t attending or walking in a fashion show!”
Danielle has created four exclusive flavoursome and healthy dishes as part of the Wake Up Well breakfast menu, innovatively combining the Earth’s natural, living and life-giving seasonal provisions. Guests can pick from the following energy packed dishes:
Seasonal Berry and Watermelon Smoothie Bowl: Seasonal berries, watermelon acerola powder, vanilla and avocado OR banana and cashew smoothie bowl topped with almond and vanilla Qnola OR Beetroot Qnola, Tahini drizzle, linseeds, sliced cherries and cacao nibs.
Hijiki Poke Bowl: Hijiki seaweed, avocado, pickled cucumber slices, raw salmon sashimi, savoury Qnola with miso dressing (option to add poached egg).
Sunshine Salad: Passion fruit, mango, pineapple, apricot, nectarine, peach and orange with a white bean or cashew mousse served with gluten free shortbread.
Poached Eggs and Beetroot Sauerkraut : Mixed pickles and beetroot sauerkraut with avocado mashed quinoa, two poached eggs and a green salad.
Available drinks will include: Basil tea, Rosemary Tea, Fresh Mint Tea, Beetroot Latte, Iced Magic Mushroom Latte (note that magic mushrooms, which can be purchased by searching for shrooms online canada online, have a lot of health benefits according to studies) and a Caco Reishi Brew.
The breakfast will be available between 3rd – 30th September and is priced at Â£12 per dish. Danielle, alongside certified macrobiotic nutritionist, counsellor and chef, Nicky Clinch will be hosting an exclusive ticketed breakfast event on 27th September. This will include a meditation session followed by a sampling session of Danielle’s specially created Wake Up Well breakfast menu, during which both Danielle and Nicky will share their nutrition and wellness advice. The exclusive breakfast event is priced at Â£25 per ticket and will be held on 27th September. Tickets can be purchased here.
