5 Breakfasts You Can Make Or Grab In 2 Minutes
Sometimes the morning can get away on us and making breakfast can feel like the last thing on your mind. But, every time you eat it’s an opportunity to nourish your body and feed your cells so you can glow from the inside out. What you start your day on can either set you up for the day or it can have a negative impact on your health. Negative health effects can be tiredness, brain-fog, trouble concentrating, food cravings, coffee cravings (for a “quick” energy boosting fix), weight gain, bloating. So, I want to make your life a little easier and a little healthier by giving you 5 breakfasts you make or grab in 2 minutes (or less)!
1. Smoothie packs – smoothies take barley anytime to make, but if making a smoothie seems too daunting pre-make smoothie packs in the weekend, then all you have to do is add a pre-made bag to your blender with liquid and you’re good to go with a nutrient dense breakfast in 30 seconds! A good combination is fresh fruit, a handful or two of leafy greens, a healthy fat like nuts/seeds/avocado, a good quality protein powder, blend this with water/coconut water or milk of choice.
2. Yoghurt Bowl – simply add the following into a bowl: 5-6 tbsp greek or coconut yoghurt, a handful of nuts/seeds, 2 tablespoons of chia seeds, and a sliced banana (or fruit of choice).
3. Overnight oats – this is one of the simplest and most nourishing breakfasts you can make. Into a small cup or bowl simply add 1/3-1/2 cup oats, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 2-3 tbsp nuts, 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds and 1 sliced banana or a handful of berries. Cover this mixture with almond/rice/coconut milk and store it in the fridge overnight. In the morning enjoy it as a bircher or heat on the stove for a few mintues, then top it off with greek/coconut youghrt or a nut butter.
4. Hard boiled eggs + a piece of fruit – during the weekend boil up a 6-10 eggs, and in the morning grab two of them with a piece of fruit and you’re good to go!
5. Make your own protein bar – in the weekend make a simple homemade protein bars which you can grab-and-go during the morning. Omit the chocolate topping if it’s too much for you in the early hours of the morning.
