We know what it’s like in today’s time-poor reality rushing to get everything done in the morning. From getting in that early workout or meditation to beating the rush on the way to work. The key to eating well in the morning is being prepared – we tend to prep either on the weekend or the night before.
Here are 3 smart and simple healthy breakfast foods for those hectic mornings:
Pre-prepare your fresh ingredients by chopping fruit/veg and adding them into individual ziplock bags. Keep the bags in the freezer so in the morning all you have to do is empty the pack with some liquid into a blender, blend and go. A foolproof combination is chopped banana, chopped mango and a handful of spinach. Add water, almond milk, organic milk or yoghurt in the morning and a scoop of plant-based or grass-fed whey protein for an extra protein boost.
Easy Overnight Oats
1/2 cup of rolled oats mixed with almonds, pumpkin seeds, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and 1/2 cup frozen berries, soaked in milk and yoghurt overnight (use almond or coconut milk products for a dairy free option). You can even triple the recipe and store the oat mixture in singular containers in the fridge for 3-4 days. Making it easy to grab-and-go.
Hard Boiled Eggs
Hard boil a dozen eggs on the weekend for the week ahead. Keep them (unpeeled) in a bowl in the fridge for an easy breakfast when you’re feeling like something savoury in the morning. You can peel and eat them as is (eggs are the perfect combination of protein + fat), or mash up 2 eggs with a little salt and pepper, 1/2 an avocado and some hummus in a small bowl and make a quick sandwich with some nutritious bread. Wrap it up and eat it once you get to work.
