Do you eat breakfast? I do. There were years and years where my breakfast consisted of a big glass of juice and coffee. Breakfast can be one of the meals we have the least time to prepare and consume while getting ready for our day. There is a lot that goes on in the morning.
One thing I learned about breakfast is to have several items at hand that are easy. I started out with pre-packaged oatmeal but it is really hard to find one that is not super sweet or that does not include apple cinnamon which I am not a fan of. The apple tastes fake and weird to me even with organic brands. Smoothies never keep me full so I tend not to have those as a breakfast.
So how do you make breakfast fast and healthy? Here are a few of my top tips.
1. Big batches of grain porridge: Irish (steel cut) oats, rolled oats, barley, quinoa, multi-grain hot cereals. I freeze them in bags, I like to put two cups in a bag that is two days of brekkie.
2. Yogurt, fruit, and granola. Simple and easy just make sure your yogurt and granola are not sugar bombs. I like this granola paired with unsweetened yogurt. You could also use nuts if you are off grains.
3. Egg bakes they reheat well. Kalyn’s Kitchen has some great recipes for them. I linked my favorite.
4. This is a more recent addition to my breakfast repertoire Chia seed pudding with fruit. Make the night before to make it really easy.
5. Leftovers, soup, and other savoury foods. Don’t limit yourself to what we think of as breakfast food.
