I get it…Often breakfast is something that you want to start doing ‘properly’ but quite often you just can’t find the time in the morning to get around to it… You like the idea of starting your day with a beautiful colourful breakfast but in reality your mornings are spent rushing around trying to get out of the door without getting toothpaste down your front!
But what if I told you that having a colourful nourishing breakfast doesn’t need to take up much of your valuable morning minutes?? In fact, what if I told you about some breakfast options that are literally just waiting in the fridge for you to grab?!
This is exactly what I want to share with you today… 3 simple breakfast ideas that won’t make you late for work!
Number 1: Egg and bacon muffins
Sound complicated, REALLY aren’t! Whats great about these bad boys is that you can cook them up in advance (say on a Sunday when you have a spare 20 mins) and then have them ready for the week ahead.
All you need to do to make 3 servings (I eat 2 for a breakfast) is:
- Heat the oven to 160 degrees (I cooked 3 rashers of bacon first in the oven)
- Spray some oil onto a 6 holed muffin tray
- Whisk up 6 eggs then add 3 rashers of cooked bacon chopped up into small pieces, a handful of peas, handful of grated cheese and a good sprinkling of salt, pepper and turmeric.
- Mix all the ingredients together and then pour evenly into the muffin trays.
- Put in the oven for 15-18mins and voila!
Serve immediately with a few chopped tomatoes on top or keep in the fridge for the following mornings throughout the week. You can reheat them but avoid microwaving them for too long to avoid chewy eggs!
Number 2: Fancy toast
It’s toast, but better! Full of protein, fibre and ridiculously tasty!
All you need to do is toast your bread (I used rye bread just because it’s really rich in fibre and is naturally lower in gluten) then top with sugar free peanut butter, chopped banana and a sprinkle of chia seeds! Voila!
I had 2 pieces and was STUFFED after so maybe just figure out what portion size is best for you.
Number 3: Overnight oats
Another super simple breakfast which only needs a couple of minutes prepping the night before for it to be then ready to grab first thing with no hassle whatsoever!
- Poor 100g of oats into a container or bowl (I used my fancy jam jar glass)
- Put in 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
- Pour over 100ml of your milk of choice
- Add half a tsp of vanilla essence and a good drizzle of honey or maple syrup
- Then mix up with a spoon and put in the fridge overnight
Then in the morning (or even the night before if you really don’t want to mess about!) just put over a scattering of your fruit of choice and if you’re feeling fancy even a spoonful of nut butter!
Feel free to mix in a bit of extra milk if you prefer your oats a little looser before eating, then off you go on your merry munching way.
See I wasn’t lying! Super quick and super tasty. All of the above options are protein and fibre rich to keep you full until lunchtime.
Give them a go and let me know what you think!
