Here are some healthy quick breakky ideas to whip up that will help you kick start your day.
Sometimes I prefer a savory breakfast, sometimes I prefer a sweet one, somedays there’s more time to make breakky and others not so much, so here you have a variety of things to try based on what you feel like and how much time you have.
Power smoothie – 1 scoop Chocolate protein powder, 1 banana + ice (or use frozen banana), almond milk, 1 tbsp Oats, 1tsp chia seeds, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Optional: an espresso shot. This shake gives you protein (powder), carbs (banana and oats) and fats (chia) all in one with a bunch of vitamins and minerals. It’s hard to go wrong with a smoothie, get creative with adding in fruits and vegetables such as berries, spinach and mango. Coconut milk is also a tasty alternative to almond milk. If you don’t drink or like coffee you don’t need to add it in, or maybe you love drinking your coffee seperate, that’s okay too!
French Toast – 1 free range egg, 2 slices of gf bread, ½ tsp vanilla essence, cinnamon.
Wisk the egg, vanilla and cinnamon. Slice the bread down the middle and let it soak in the egg mixture for a minute or two as you prepare and heat a fry pan with a little bit of butter. When the butter has melted, place the bread slices in the pan and cook until lightly brown and flip. Add topping such as fresh berries, banana, maple syrup, more cinnamon, or even a dollop of yoghurt.
Overnight oats – Something to prepare the night before, to make the morning easier. In a glass jar or container add ⅓ cup oats, and cover with milk of choice, optional add in tsp of protein powder or honey for flavour. Top with layers of chia or granola, yoghurt, berries or banana. Allow to soak overnight and enjoy in the morning!
Veggie Omelette – for the savoury lover. 2 eggs whisked in a bowl, add salt, pepper. Chop up a handful of spinach, ¼ capsicum, ¼ red onion, 3-4 mushrooms or a slice of bacon. Spray a pan lightly with coconut oil spray, and heat. Pour the egg into the pan and cover the base of the pan, top with the chopped ingredients and give it a little stir if you prefer the ingredients more cooked than fresh. Flip when it’s cooked to your liking and enjoy with sauerkraut or fresh tomato or avo. Again like the smoothie, you can get super creative with adding ingredients. Chopped broccoli, tomato, kale, even some cubes of cooked sweet potato!
