You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well, I looove breakfast, but I also think lunch and dinner are pretty important too!
Of course, eating breakfast will definitely set you up well for the day, if you can manage it. I say that because I know not everyone feels like eating first thing in the morning.
The good news is that that’s okay, because studies are now showing that skipping breakfast isn’t as big a deal as previously thought. I’m not going to get into the details here, but if you want to know more, click here for a good article by Precision Nutrition.
I’m giving you a week’s worth of breakfast ideas and recipes here, so you’ll never have an excuse not to make yourself a nourishing breakfast!
Planning and prep, as always, are an important part. This is your plan (and recipes), now you just have to organise a little bit of prep time and decide what to have when.
Let’s dive in!
GREEK YOGHURT WITH HONEY, TOASTED MUESLI & FRUIT
The prep for this one is making the muesli – get my recipe here. Make a big batch on the weekend and you’ll have enough for a couple of weeks. Use 2 or 3 big spoonfuls of yoghurt (mixed with honey) and top it with a handful of muesli and a serving or two of fruit.
This is my favourite no fuss, 5 minute brekkie bowl. You can supercharge this further by adding other toppings such as flaxseed, chia seeds, protein powder, nut butter, bee pollen or whatever else you like!
My mouth is watering writing this one and I don’t think you need a ‘recipe’ as such! Boil your eggs to your liking – I time mine for two minutes, once the water starts to boil – and eat them with your favourite good quality bread; I can’t go past a good sourdough rye.
Pan fry two rashers of lean bacon. Add 1 chopped tomato and a handful of chopped spinach to the pan, cook for a couple of minutes and crack in two eggs. Use an egg slice to scramble and mix until cooked. Top with avocado slices for a brekkie that will fill you up and keep you satisfied for hours.
