There is a lot of great suggestions online, but personally I make myself a smoothie that gives me energy for the next 4 to 5 hours. Here are some ingredient options: banana (it fills you up for a couple of hours),raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, pineapple, cocoa, couple of squares of dark chocolate, morning oats (also very filling). I hope this helps.
You can preboil eggs the night before and just eat them cold (they’re still great), or you can make ‘egg and broccoli omelette muffins’ and keep them for up to three days in the fridge. Or bread and cheese pre-made and wrapped.
My fav on the go breakfast is shakeology (almond milk, chocolate superfood protein powder, nut butter, frozen banana, frozen spinach, cinnamon and ice)
I do yogurt and honey bunches of oats. DIY parfait. I just bag in the snack bags on the weekend and grab & go each morning
Make your own breakfast bars from oatmeal. Since you can make them yourself you can add new things in them. Pastries that are whole grain that you can make at home are good. Make a breakfast sandwich or you can make smoothie packs and freeze, or blend and then store
Try some sort of breakfast that can be prepared in the evening before. For instance oatmeal with some fruits that can be stored in the fridge. My personal preference is oatmeal fruit and milk, mix it together in the blender and then put it in the fridge. There I have a complete healthy meal ready on the go
You could eat a piece of fruit and nuts. Also you can carry a bottle full of milk with oat for drinking in the transport.
Hey dearie! It's understandable that morning can be a time of rush but especially since it's the most productive time of the day, you might want to put in a little more effort to have a healthy breakfast that will keep you full and active for the rest of the day. I know it's easier said than done but believe me when I say that you do NOT wanna skip breakfast or delay it to brunch because when hunger strikes you end up binging on more than what you should eat and end up feeling lethargic afterwards. If there's not enough time in the morning for you to cook, then you can opt for meal prepping and get it done ahead of time. Like for instance, there's so many delicious recipes out there for overnight oats that are healthy AND with its high fibre contenteating a bit goes a long way to keep you full. If your night routine is hectic too then just simply cram in some dried fruit and nuts bento box style so that you can munch on them than resorting to mindless snacking on the first thing you get your hands on 😉 I had the same problem of not being able to get breakfast done on time until I was mad hungry and ready to eat a bear and so then I tweaked my routine to popping a handful of almonds and drinking warm water and lime juice first thing in the morning and I could go on for hours feeling wide awake, full and energized. I hope this helps!
One thing I like to do is make breakfast smoothies. I put in A LOT of spinach (probably about 3 very large handfuls), a banana, and some frozen mango (you can also mix and match with frozen berries or fresh apples), and some almond milk (enough so that it isn’t too thick to blend). A smoothie and a hard-boiled egg will usually hold me until lunch. You can also make the smoothie the night before and store it in the fridge. It’s a little better fresh, but I hear you on the time issue!
If you have some time the night before, you could make an overnight chia pudding. You can put whatever you want but the main ingredients are milk (or non-dairy alternative), chia seeds, uncooked oats and more. I put maple syrup as my sweetener as well as cinnamon for taste. I also put apples/bananas/nuts/raisins. All you have to do is put it all in a jar (mason or otherwise) the night before and leave it in the fridge. Simply pick up and take with you the next day.
- 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.
