Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day and if you’re struggling to get ample amounts of nutrition in the morning, perhaps these breakfast ideas can help.
Need to squeeze in a quick breakfast before rushing out of the door? Grab a mini tub of yogurt and top it with a fruit of your choice. Strawberries pair extremely well with greek yogurt. Raisins and nuts are amazing additions too! Psst, we love topping our yogurt with a generous serving of chunky peanut butter.
Overnight oats will save us all. It takes virtually no preparation time as you can simply grab it and go. Just remember to place all the ingredients in your lunch box the night before so it can work its magic while you sleep. All you need are oats, drizzled with a milk of your choice and your selected toppings. Experimenting with different fruits and nuts allows you to try various flavours of tasty, fruity oatmeal at work.
Chia Seed Pudding
Since chia seeds take a while to expand into little chewy globules, put a tablespoon of chia seeds into a bowl of milk first thing in the morning. As they’ll be done by the time you reach the table for breakfast before leaving the house, add in some ready-made granola or fruits to complete your meal. It’s as simple as that.
Make it a habit to store pre-washed frozen fruits in your refrigerator. A great way to begin your day, the blender takes only about 30 seconds to blend your ingredients. It doesn’t have to be all berries, adding a banana or avocado is a brilliant way to make your smoothie super filling. Breakfast = settled.
This option is for the late risers. If you have positively no time to grab anything from home, you can get breakfast from a bakery. Proceed with caution, as you might get tempted by the buttery croissants and danish pastries. But with a wholegrain bun in one hand and coffee in another, it’s actually a pretty awesome way to start the day.
Peanut Butter Wrap
Fancy a breakfast wrap? Hurry, your time starts now. Smother your desired amount of peanut butter on a soft slice of bread. Now add a banana, or a fruit of your choice in the middle of the bread and roll it right up. And just like that, you’re done. A perfectly filling breakfast to munch on the go. Switch it up every day with different kinds of nut spreads and fruits.
Sweet Potato And Yogurt
You’ll have to boil and peel sweet potatoes the night before for this, but once you have cooked sweet potatoes stored in your fridge, it makes the perfect addition to a bowl of yogurt. The marriage of sweet potatoes and yogurt will blow your mind and get you hooked.
No time to think of anything? Cereal and milk are your go-to. Cereal does not have to be unhealthy if you pick wholegrain options with no added sugar. This is the absolute no-brainer breakfast choice for champions.
Sliced tomatoes topped with cheese of your choice will get you feeling all fancy as you wolf your Insta-ready breakfast down before leaving for work. We recommend topping the juicy slices with rich goat cheese.
A handful of nuts, dried fruits and granola. Pack everything into a container and nibble on the go. Trail mix will fill you up real quick.
