  1. Frozen Berry Breakfast Bowl

 
 Breakfast has, and probably will always be labeled as the most important meal of the day. However, with all the busy schedules and little time, it can be difficult to actually eat a good, healthy breakfast, but with the easy ingredients in this recipe, you can now achieve that. Blueberries, Raspberries, or simply just mixed berries work perfectly for this recipe. Acai juice or powder is also needed, along with five bananas and granola. To make this already healthy dish just a tad bit healthier, leave out the acai juice or powder and just add extra fruit. Either a food processor or blender are necessary in order to smooth out the berries and bananas and to complete the mixture. 
 

  1. Cheesecake in a Jar

 
Another simple dessert recipe by Gordan Ramsay, cheesecake in a jar is certainly a unique treat.

To complete the rest of the dish, cream cheese and greek yogurt are both needed, as well as coconut sugar, a bit of lemon juice, vanilla extract, a pinch of salt, and blueberries. Considering that the ingredients are mixed in a jar, a traditional cheesecake is not what you are exactly going for, but this quick dessert is probably still photograph and instagram worthy.

Gordon’s raspberry chia seed jam is a recipe to try for breakfast, lunch, or even a simple snack, especially if you are a fan of raspberries. Fresh raspberries are needed for this recipe, really for the best results. Lemon juice is also needed, preferably freshly squeezed from just a half of a typical lemon.

To start the recipe, place both raspberries and lemon juice into a blender with honey and blend until there is a smooth consistency, add the chia seeds and blend again.

  1. Banana and Apple Crisps

 
A simple and small list of just two ingredients are needed for this simple snack. 2 apples and 2 bananas that have been peeled are all of what’s on the ingredients list for this delicious and easy recipe that can serve as a helpful step in your journey to become healthier or maintain your already healthy lifestyle. In order to prepare these crisps, 2 or three baking trays lined with grease paper are needed, and of course an oven to heat the crisps. You need to thinly and evenly slice both the apples and bananas and line both baking trays with the slices, and then place them into the oven for one and a half hours. The banana slices are more likely to take a bit longer to crisp, so make sure to check your apple slices so they do not crisp too finely or burn. After the crisps are done baking, be sure to let them cool and then store them for up to a week before consuming.
