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
I always enjoy researching what I can eat, what is good for me, and try to find recipes that incorporate those foods. My healthiest mornings are when I just throw everything in a blender because I am not keen on eating first thing in the morning but my coffee and a smoothy go down great. Knowing that I do this, I prepare my ingrdients in advance and have things prepared and ready to go. Once it becomes habit, it is a routine that you don’t have to put much thought into.
I generally have things, like: porridge with honey cinnamon and fruit made with either full fat milk or almond. It has the right balance for most lifestyles.
Or higher protein I'll have poached eggs (3) with avacado on toast, sometimes I'll do it with sweet pot mash that has chick peas in it for a veggie high protein meal or add meat or fish (personally favourite is avacado with salmon on toast with poached eggs.
If in a rush I'll have a banana and almond butter toast
Egg whites with cottage cheese and an orange.
Yogurt with protein granola and berries.
You can also go for a banana, glass of milk and a spoonful of peanut butter.
Try to avoid McDonald’s or any of the fast food places!
Prepare a menu for the week to avoid wasting time choosing every morning
I always drink water and have the same ingredients like milk and eggs for a breakfast in the fridge that I don't have to think what to cook in the morning.
Another interesting idea is to set up a timer or simply switch on the music while doing some regular morning routines like a cleanup or a shower. You have it in mind that need to finish before the music stops.
Writing a plan for the day in the previous evening helps to remember what you have to do.
Writing things on your yo do list and checking them through the day making sure you have accomplished the tasks.
– rice for carbo
– tofu/tempe/egg/meat for protein
– vegetables for the vitamins and another healthy contain
Remember, our brains are 'time-saving machines'. We just need program them well.
Have a nice day! ⚓

- 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?
