BREAKFAST FOR DUMMIES

BREAKFAST FOR DUMMIES

Okay IRVers, our whole lives we’ve heard it is so important it is to eat breakfast however day after day we pick up a coffee and forgo starting our metabolism with some sort of solid food. Quinoa porridge is actually the answer to all problems. It can be made in a big batch, customizable to include any toppings your heart desires and really fills you up. This morning I added some almonds, frozen berries and a dollop of yoghurt and was just on cloud nine. Give it a try once and I promise, you will be making it on the regular. Check out some of the recipes below:

GIRL CRUSH ON CARA

We would like to present Miss Cara Delevinge with an honorary IRV “hippest chick we wish we knew” award. It might be the dark eye brows, her wicked style or just being on every runway these days but you know you’ve made it when you are the face of the new Burberry campaign. She oozes hipster IDGAF attitude and we fully support her! Rock on Cara and keep up the wicked instagramming so we can tag along to your super-fab life (and apparently being best friends with Pharrell)

MCDUBS & NUTRITION

I can hear my university self jumping for joy at the very thought that the McDouble could possibly be the “cheapest, most nutritious and bountiful food that has ever existed in human history?” At a whooping $1.39, the amount of calories, protein, iron and so on have the best street value compared to any other fast food. I’m not a huge fan of McDonalds (excluding mornings with a level 10 hangover) and the guilt I have for treating myself definitely does not outweigh the 10 minutes of taste bud bliss, however, you have to hand it to McDonalds for setting a certain standard and delivering it 100% of the time. I’m going to stick with my salad for lunch today, but if I’m ever short on the daily caloric intake, I can depend on my McDouble to fill me up and get the biggest bang for my buck.
