Are we the only ones who run around like headless chickens in the mornings? In such a mad rush that you don’t have time to think of a healthy brekky, let alone make one. Here are our top five wholesome brekky’s that are packed with fibre, protein and lots of energy!
1. Quick Oats
Oats area great brekky option. They are filled with fibre and protein and can be made in so many different ways. The microwave is definitely the fastest option for the mad rushers!
Method: combine 1/2 cup quick oats (GF if you like) with 3/4 cup of milk or water (coconut milk works well too). Microwave on high for 90 seconds! We add fresh fruit on top – sometimes a dollop of peanut butter if it’s after a workout!
Smoothies are our summer go to! They are refreshing and delicious. We have quite a few recipes up on the blog so take your pick here:
If you are after something more filling try out Banana Breakfast Smoothie. Something healthy and refreshing – how about a green smoothie? Something with extra protein = Hello Sunshine smoothie. Or keep it simple with a Berry Smoothie which can be made into a smoothie bowl just like that!
Eggs are normally put into the “it takes too long” category but we have the solution. Try your trusty microwave! No, I am not kidding it works! Eggs are the perfect brekky option as they have good fats and proteins that keep you fuller for longer.
Method 1: to poach an egg. Crack it into a ramekin and top with a splash of water (no more than 1 tbs). Cook on medium for 55seconds. It takes a bit to work out the timing in your microwave but worth it.
Method 2: to scramble. Whisk an egg with a splash of milk in a mug. Cook on high for 1 minute stir thoroughly.
I know it’s a stock standard and may be slightly obvious but toast is easy and simple. Make the most of your toast by choosing a good bread and by topping it with the most nutritious toppings. We like natural peanut butter after a workout or avocado toast of course – duh.
5. Overnight Oats
I know this is may be cheating but whip these up the night before and you have a nutritious breakfast. They are filled with fibre and can be catered for any taste.
