I would make a container of baked beans and half an avocado in the fridge. This was useful for 3 reasons:
1. If my boss was needing everything yesterday then I could eat it as is, anywhere, because baked beans are already cooked.
2. If I felt I needed something a lil more substantial I would toast some bread whilst getting dressed to take with it.
3. If I had time to have breakfast that morning it would keep until the next day at least.
Otherwise I’d have a bowl of oats or Weetbix with milk and fruit with honey. On Sundays I have a big relaxing leisurely breakfast
2 – If you like oatmeal, and/ or if you live in snow country, like I, you can make hot oatmeal fast by mixing oatmeal with milk and a pinch of salt in a small covered pot. Put it in the fridge over night. While you are dressing, put the pot on a medium heat. Or after dressing, you can put the mix in a microwave safe bowl. It does not take long to heat it up. If you prefer a sweeter hot cereal, you can put a teaspoon of sugarless jam. With juice and coffee, milk or a preferred liquid to drink. This, too, is quite filling.
3 – You can always have hard boiled eggs handy in the refridgerater. Eggs are a great protein to have on hand. Egg, hard boiled or making a quick omelet with natural cheese in the blended egg or on it before you fold it.
4 – There is always a healthy mixed grain dry cereal with fruit, seeds, nuts, etc in it.
5 – I do not make them for myself because of health issues, but there are many smoothie recipes that are very healthy. You can put the ingredients in a blender the night before, without the liquid, so it needs is for you to add the liquid and ice. Belen away for a short time and you have a fulfilling breakfast.
I hope that I have given you one or two ideas for a quick breakfast. Enjoy and I wish you good health, great happiness and a lot of laughter in your life and in the wonderful The Fabulous programs. Bye bye.
I have difficulty with healthy lunches and dinners. Any ideas?
My breakfast recipe:
Overnight oats. Really easy to prepare at night and even easier to eat in the morning. I prepare my mix in batches and then each night simply mash a banana, pour some of the mix, put some frozen berries on top and add soy milk. In the morning I usually cut some fresh fruits as well.
Flax seeds: 100g (crushed)
Chia seeds: 15g
Almonds (or other nuts): 100g (crushed)
Dried Coconut: 50g
Optional: Four Sigmatic's 10 Mushroom Blend, Amla Powder
- 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.
