Vegetables work in smoothies to reduce sugar content.
I also eat a banana. Fruit is very reccomened in the morning and banana is easy to eat even on the way.
I’d recommend you to schedule your breakfast in your agenda as you do with everything else, usually we struggle to get a full, good, healthy and full of energy breakfast because we overestimate it. It doesn’t take as long as we think, it will be never more than 20 min, so I’ll recommend you to go 20 min earlier to bed, take 10 min from your social media time and probably the other 10 from watching tv or so, the. You’ll have the perfect time to do it. Try out some videos from YouTube or ideas from Pinterest! Make sure you organise everything the night before to be more efficient while preparing it! 💖✨🍃 I’m sending you my best energy
I once saw a video that showed that you can prepare your food for entire week in your weekend.
Meal prep is always a great option
Whole wheat English muffin
Pop the muffin in the toaster. While the muffin is cooking crack and egg in a small bowl and scramble it with a fork. Pop that in the microwave for about 1 minute (1:30 possibly. You will figure which time works quickly)
Once the egg is cooked through the muffin should be done. Layer cheese, egg, a couple of pieces of spinach and tomato on the muffin and you're good to go. You can preslice the tomato but you should be able to slice a piece off quickly. Wrap it in a paper towel and off you go about 300 calories and 96 grams of protein. Plus the whole wheat muffin is a complex carb to keep you going until lunch. Best of luck.
Secondly have some healthy snack bars / cereal bars ready and some fruit or nuts. You can eat these on the go.
Otherwise fresh fruit is a good option. But try to get some whole grains in somehow.. carbs really boost your energy.. and at the start of your day you need that fuel.
I appreciate your question and to be honest I also still at the same condition and One thing that works very well for me and I’m changing my routines , beeing more productive and with energy all day long , is to wake up earlier than normally do.
To be at 07:30h at work I wake up at 4am and do all my routine focused and proud of life.
Its beeing amazing !
I recommend and hope it works for you too!!
In the morning I measure out a half cup of coconut water into the cup. I also like to add acai berry powder and beet powder, but it isn’t necessary.
I then use an imersion blender to mix it all up. I can sit and drink it in just a few minutes.
When I get to work a few hours later (my commute is around 80 minutes) I like to eat one or two hard boiled eggs if I’m hungry.
The banana gives you slow releasing energy and the honey contains natural sugar for an early energy boost
However, if you’re like me (and you’re stomach doesn’t wake up until around 9am, I’d suggest a pre- breakfast (a little nibble of something to hold you over until you get to the office and can get yourself something “real” to eat.
Basically It would be a mixture of light and healthy breakfast, helping you concentrate more on your work.
I recommend you to carry fruits to work as they can be a delicious part of a nourishing breakfast.
Hope this helps.
I would advise to prepare everything the night before so you can leave as early as possible and use your commuting as a breakfast opportunity.
Something like overnight oats (https://wholefully.com/8-classic-overnight-oats-recipes-you-should-try/) is a great way of planning ahead a healthy breakfast !
If you can eat breakfast at your workplace that could also work very well to avoid eating while commuting !
Good luck !
– Boiled eggs (pop into pitta with raw spinach in the morning)
– soak oats with fruit, nuts, maple syrup, nut butters and water or milk in a jar overnight.
– soak chia seeds overnight with coconut milk, maple syrup, cinnamon . Leave in the fridge, eat in the morning.
Preparing the night before would e the best option I think. You can even prepare some peanut butter jelly sandwiches…
I also changed my job 🙃
But those Tasty breakfast recipes remained unchanged.
You’re welcome 😉
1. Make overnight oats the evening before (check on google)
2. Cottage cheese with a banana, chia seeds and peanut butter. (Cottage cheese for protein, fruit/seeds for healthy points and a peanut butter to give you that satisfied feeling.
2. Buy some fruit bars and eat them on the go
– handful of nuts or pumpkin seeds
– fruit like a banana, orange, or small bunch of grapes
– hardboiled egg (can boil a bunch ahead of time and keep in the fridge for several days
– string cheese
– half a PB&J sandwich (or, whole wheat bread/toast with peanut butter on it)
Any combo that gets you protein (the eggs, cheese, or p butter) and fruit
I think one idea is prepare your breakfast at last night. Doing it you can just wake up and eat, or make some easy stuff to finish your fabulous breakfast.
One good choice to be easy to prepare is fruits, yogurt and nuts. It’s very easy because you just need to cut the fruits and you can do it in the previous night.
Anything is better than nothing
Mix it up
Fill up on fiber and protein
Useless calories from sugar and fat make you feel sluggish
Eating is fun – start your day with a smile
Lean and light starts your morning right
I usually prepare breakfast the night before and exercise after work ( i know it should be in the morning but i wake up at 5am) 🙈🙉🙊
I hope this helps! 💛
Go to bed early for sleep enough. And prepare breakfast, clothes, glass of water at evening)
And well, of course leave out of your morning rutine anything that's not completely necessary to have done by morning!
P.S: Sorry because of my broken English. I’m learning still
Heat the following day and add a teaspoon of honey with a handful of organic blueberries… for a quick & easy breakfast with slow release energy, vitamins, minerals and natural sweetness! 🙂
Another option is to make egg and meat breakfast sandwiches or burritos and either freeze them or keep in the fridge. Heat them up as you prep your coffee on the go and again eat on the way to work. Good luck. 🙂
When you only have a short amount of time between waking up and leaving for work, you will want to aim for something that is quick and easy to eat but it should be high in protein.
Consider two hard boiled eggs and a slice of toast. Eggs are amazing for how much protein and nutrients they provide. The protein should help you feel fuller for longer. If you are able to get a low GI bread, it is slower to release energy and should keep you going for longer.
Alternatively if you are keen to do some preparation in advance and are not a fan of eating first thing in the morning, consider a smoothie. You can add banana, berries, kale, flax seed, and also a bit of protein powder. Smoothies are easy to drink, I find they leave me feeling fuller for longer, and don’t take much time if you have already prepared the ingredients.
I also use the Starbucks app to pre-order their egg white sous vide bites and a dry cappuccino, so that I can just drive up, grab it, and go. Then eat that with an apple in the car on my way to work.
Hope this was helpful.
Smoothies which you can put all these healthy ingredients, and it’ll take a few minutes, and you can drink on the way to work.
Practical one bananacado
1 banana, half avocado in a milk or smilies with addition of some protein like yoghurt plus some oat mill or flaxseed
For fiber lil cinnamon you are done
You just need few minutes if you prepare some ingredients for your breakfast in the morning.
Alternatively you can have practical protein sandwiches or always easy to gram some fruits with nuts so there are too many alternatives
It isn’t my everyday, but it covers when I can’t do more.
I also find it easy on my stomach, when low or especially zero fat yogurt upsets my stomach.
The optimal thing to do is prep on Sunday. I do 1/2 dozen eggs in the pressure cooker. I then bag them individually and pack in finger food veggies. I also sometimes make a sandwich on whole grain bread, chicken breast, veggies and avocado instead of mayo. If necessary I can have it in the car. I love Greek yogurt, low sugar and high protein, with chia seeds and cut fresh fruit. I am a proponent of not limiting myself to “breakfast choices”. I’m now trying to have healthy food. Food is food and doesn’t have to be for a particular meal.
I personally prefer to spend less morning time to prepare an energy breakfast. So I like to mix a variety of seeds in 2/3 jar of peanut butter. In the morning smear some on a piece of bread and eat with a banana or apple. I like sprouted raw seeds from Go Raw. Can mix in lightly toasted sesame seeds, hemp seeds and grounded flex seeds, etc. Spinach and boiled egg are great add-on protein to balance the nutrition.
Overnight oats jar, chia pudding and boiled eggs are great to prepare the night before. Just need a very little time ahead.
Hope this helps! Early bird!
Or a banana (for potassium) with some nuts – the addition of nuts keeps you fuller for longer.
Or make some savoury muffins in advance.
Or hard boil some eggs in advance and eat with a glass of orange juice (the OJ helps your body absorb the iron from the egg).
I actually can’t eat a heavy breakfast or lunch… I and yo feeling sleepy at work if I have a big or heavy meal…
But then my problem is I binge at dinner and on snacks at night.
I have been really working hard for the last 8 to 10 weeks and have completely stopped eating junk food (pretzels, crackers, little muffins, cookies, etc) at night… but I sill end up eating like a sandwich or seintging in the evening before sleep even after having a big dinner.
I have cut out red meat a lot… I eat more soups, salads, vegetables, quinoa, cauliflower based stuff
Let me suggest another radical alternative: It will help if you set a definite wake up time each morning. 30 minutes is not sufficient for all your morning routines. So how about go to bed earlier, and wake up at, say, 4.30am. This way you will be able to accommodate all your morning routines and still be at work on time.
You could also make eggs on whole-grain toast, which should take even less time to cook.
For a no-cook option, I’d say go for avocado and olive oil on toast, sprinkled with some chilli flakes.
I hope this helped!
