I’ve been hearing many excuses to why you might not have/ skip breakfast.
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, and the one I like the spend the most time making. However I don’t always have the luxury of time to make myself a warming bowl of oats or a stack of steaming protein pancakes. On these occasions, here are my three go-to breakfasts…
My absolute favorite, you’ve properly heard me go on about this, it’s the easiest way to make sure you get loads of protein in. This baked egg dish, similar to omelette, works served both hot and cold and with a vast array of fillings. This is great to get your micro-nutrients in (loads of vegetables) and add meat if you would like to.
- Beat eggs, liquid, herb and salt and pepper in medium bowl until blended. Add your fillings; mix well.
- Pour in the egg mixture; cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set, 8 to 12 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Let it standby until eggs are completely set and no visible liquid egg remains, 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into squares and enjoy.
This is the ultimate busy morning breakfast. You can simply make them the night before, pop them in a bowl and grab them straight out the fridge in the morning. They are best served cold and creamy.
Chocolate peanut butter overnight oats:
- 3 tbsp plain Greek yogurt
- 50g rolled oats
- 160ml unsweetened milk of choice
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour into a jar and seal. Refrigerate overnight before eating.
If you are really tight for time…….. Smoothies can be blitzed up in seconds. Just make sure you’re prepared in advanced. Get some bananas, ripen them, peel them and pop them in the freezer. Then keep ingredients like dates, nut butter, cocoa powder and protein powder in your cupboards. Then you can mix and match these with your fresh ingredients too. My favourite smoothie recipe ever, which has the best ice cream texture around, is this bad boy:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 handful spinach
- handful of ice
- almond milk to cover
Make sure you use as little milk as possible, as this makes for a thicker more filling smoothie!
Hope this has given you a few ideas, and helps you out. There’s no excuses to skip on breakfast. Just plan ahead.
