I’m not going to bang on here about how important breakfast is for our health and energy levels throughout the day. We all know that if we grab a slice of toast as we run out the door we’ll be sneakily raiding the biscuit barrel by 10am – but sometimes that’s just the way the cookie crumbles… like what I did there?? Ha.
After one two many mornings running out of the house with a grumbling tummy due to a grumbling toddler, I made myself a list of go to breakfasts that I can have pre prepared for when sitting down to porridge or smashed avo, spinach and eggs on toast just aint gunna happen.
Pile oats, chopped nuts, seeds (pepitas, chia seeds) coconut and your choice of fruit in to a jar – grab in the morning and add choice of milk and a dollop of greek yoghurt and you’re done!
Try soaking overnight for a ready to go Bircher version with chopped apple and cinnamon. Delish!
For the smoothie lovers
My favorite time saver is to prepare all of my smoothie ingredients in to individual zip lock bags and pop them in the freezer, that way in the mornings all I need to do is grab them out, add some coconut water or milk and blend it all up. So handy!
Some of my fave combinations:
Boiled egg and avo soldiers
I love the sit down version of this, as does my little guy which is a huge bonus!
Bring saucepan of water to the boil, then simmer the eggs for five minutes. Spread toast with avocado, slice in to strips and dip I the egg.
Don’t have time for all that? Boil up some eggs on a Sunday so that all you have to do is grab one out of the fridge, make some toast and eat on the run!
