Put straight into the bowl you will eat from, 1/2 cup whole rolled oats, and a small-medium handful of your favourite seeds and nuts – I throw in a chia-based seed mix from my local supermarket, pumpkin seeds and almonds. Top with a selection of fruit of your choice. I go with berries as they’re really quick to literally throw in – strawberries with the tops removed, blueberries, and raspberries – you could also do canned peaches, sliced banana, pre-cubed watermelon and so on. Finally, top with milk and/or yoghurt, mix and eat! It took me longer to write this post than make my breakfast this morning. Can be made in the time it takes to boil a kettle for your morning tea or coffee. Buon appetit!
Fried eggs with beans and vegetables.
1 egg mixed with 50g ( 1 big breakfast spoon) low fat cottage cheese.
Cook like an omelette in a non stick pan – cooks in maybe 5 minutes (less even)
Has around 12g protein for only approx 110 calories, so you can make 2 if you need more.
Have with a slice of grainy toast and / or a piece of fruit.
Another quick one I make and eat in the car:
Grainy toast with natural Peanut Butter and 1/3 banana sliced on top (1 piece toast like this only, this is a little heavy calorie wise)
Have with 1 x Vegemite toast OR 1 x fruit (finish the banana!)
Plus an instant coffee made in a travel mug to go.
Keep it simple, best wishes!
- 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.
