So if your anything like me trying to come up with healthy breakfast idea’s can be a bit of a nightmare! I’m very much a breakfast person (read my previous post about how important breakfast is!) but eating the same breakfast over and over again soon becomes tiring! I mean there’s only so much porridge one can stomach! Over these past few months I’ve been trying different healthy breakfast options figuring out which ones i liked and which ones i didn’t like along the way! I thought I’d share some of my favourites to inspire you to try. I’d recommend trying them on weekends when you have more time to cook rather than rushed weekday mornings!
- My absolute favourite- the classic original porridge!
So underrated on so many levels! It’s quick and so simple even a baby could do it! (although not recommended) With tonnes of options to try (if you live in the UK i’d 100% recommend the Quaker oats golden syrup!) My all time favourite topping is blueberries and honey but you can try all sorts! Strawberries, raspberries even kiwi goes. Definitely recommended if you don’t have much time in the mornings.
2. All time american favourite – Pancakes!
Still not the most time consuming and pretty easy to whip up, you can have them thick and fluffy or thin and light! You can pretty much do what you want with pancakes, I’d recommend putting some form of protein powder in if you’re using them as a post-workout snack! Again really versatile toppings can be used! If you’re wanting to feel a bit naughty spreads like the nutty carb killers can be used or alternatively you can use my favourite honey, strawberries and kiwi!
3. Scrambled eggs!
Again another classic which doesn’t require much effort! Scrambled eggs are an eggcelent 😉 source of protein, great if your using it as a post-workout snack! My go to is cheese and tomato a bit of a safer option but hey! you can get really inventive with the ingredients! spinach and Parmesan, garlic and onion are some of the few which have been recommended to me! yet to try though!
