-Then- Breakfast, if I bothered at all, used to come from the on-site cafe at work. A bacon & egg roll (or two). A coffee (or two). Oh, and there was a day I thought it was cool to go all retro and buy a chocolate crackle. Yes, for breakfast! -Now- Even the thought of not eating breakfast has me breaking out in a sweat. And on run days I've been known to have a second breakfast. I've discovered though, that it goes down better and I enjoy it more if I'm not trying to eat as soon as I wake up. This works fine on work-from-home days. But not so much on office days, so I've got to be super organised to make sure I have my goodies packed and ready to travel.
-My top 5-
1. Overnight Oats.
So easy & portable. Combine 1/3 cup of rolled oats + 2/3 cup of milk (I use almond) into a screw top jar. Shake well and leave in the fridge overnight. Top with berries + yoghurt in the morning.
There are some great pre-made options available right now. I'm loving a locally made and super clean option from Radiant Wellness. It's excellent with coconut yoghurt or almond milk and a handfull of berries.
Guaranteed out the door in 2 minutes when you have your ingredients pre-prepared and your Nutribullet at the ready. Ingredients will vary depending on whether this is pre-breakfast or a full meal.
4. Fruit + yoghurt (pictured).
The base is Greek, full fat. The fruit is seasonal. Add extra punch with chopped nuts, chia seeds or LSA.
5. Chia pudding
These tasty little seeds soak up loads of fluid and swell to create an unusual, but delicious texture. 1/4 cup of chia seeds to 3/4 cup of water or almond milk. Just shake them together in a glass jar and pop them in the fridge for an hour or overnight. Top with yoghurt and fruit. Some of my favourite combos are; apple + cinnamon, blueberry + almond, sliced pear is lovely too.
