Eggs are another great breakfast option. Have them any way you like. Try with some sautéed mushrooms and spinach for an extra vitamin a boost in the morning.
I minimize my shower time and have my work stuff prepped the night before to make time for myself to enjoy that breakfast.
If you prefer a salty taste I'd suggest eggs (1 egg or egg white) and veggies. You can prepare a frittata or egg muffins ahead.
10-12 eggs, cheese, any veggies you would like to add (I’ll do bell peppers, broccoli or even asparagus), salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all ingredients into a bowl and whisk together. Leave cheese for last otherwise it’ll all sink to the bottom. Line muffin tin with disposable cupcake lines or with silicone ones (these are truly a game changer). Fill all tins with egg mixture. Try to get even amounts of egg to veggies and cheese. Fill to the top but don’t overfill! Cook for 35 minutes. You can check with a toothpick to see if they’re cooked all the way through. Let them cool then throw them in a Tupperware container.
Every morning I can heat 2-3 up in the microwave and away I go. Low carb. Low sugar. High protein.
Baked oats – lots of recipes online. Try Vegan WonderMamas or Oh She Glows.
Whole grain bread toasted with avocado 🥑
Baked beans on toast
Made the previous day, a chilled slice of the leftover pie is quick and healthy.
No eggs or dairy, just a block of tofu blended with soy milk, a little vegan butter, several handfuls of fresh spinach, salt & pepper, poured into a pie crust and baked. Feta cheese is a nice addition if you eat dairy.
I always keep dried fruits and nuts handy, just in case I am in a hurry and have to eat on the run. Also, they're a great snack. (Careful with the portion though!!)
I also often have vega one shake for breakfast. It has all the nutrients you need
Fruit, yogurt and granola parfaits. They are really good and you can make them ahead of time and store them in mason jars.
Grab a handful and add some dried fruit for something sweet.
Using almond milk helps to avoid lactose, and a drop of apple juice goes well with the cinnamon.
Pre-heat oven to 325. Cut an avocado in half. Remove the pit. Crack an egg into the place where the pit was in each half. Bake for 25 minutes.
That makes runny yolk eggs. I top with a spoonful or two of green salsa.
That does take baking time, but not much prep time.
For all over faster breakfast I keep cut up berries in a bowl in the fridge. (I live in California so they’re not expensive.) I put some in a bowl, top with unsweetened yogurt (plain or vanilla), and sprinkle in a low sugar, high protein granola. I then have two hard boiled eggs separately to get enough calories and protein. I love this.
You could try a smoothie with wheat germ, different veggies, egg whites, and a bit of monk fruit for sweetening.
Pancakes with oat flour instead of all purpose flour
Similarly crepes with oat or millet flour loaded with fruits on top
Chocolate or plain milk on the side for calcium instead of sugar loaded juices
Option 2, eggs cook very fast. Have them alone on top of toast or a waffle, or stir in onions and bell peppers for a scramble.
Option 3, prep smoothie ingredients ahead of time and blend them in the morning. I do a savory green smoothie. I do frozen spinach, any random green things from the fridge, and 1/2 an avocado emulsifies, so it doesn’t separate and is very filling.
With tons of healthy nutrients in it – spirulina is inexpensive and a super food…. chia, matcha, hemp seeds, blue berries, flax seeds, and so much more!!!
Smoothies are a good option too. I have a lot of frozen bags of fruit/veggies in my freezer that I toss in a blender for a few seconds. Oats, yogurt, maybe some cinnamon. I’ll even throw in some eggs because of course I do lol. My main goal is keeping my mind awake for work.
I’m so sorry for my English and I hope you’ll understand
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
