Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, but due to time constraints, there are some limitations to what I can achieve before I go to work each morning.
I may not always have enough time to whip up a Michelin Star approved dish (who am I kidding, I never have the time to do this), but my breakfasts are always hearty and nutritious, to set me up for the day ahead. Here are a few of my favourite healthy breakfasts to have during the busy working week.
Smoothie’s can be created and consumed in a matter of seconds and the best thing about smoothies is that you can add different ingredients, to prevent them from becoming repetitive.
I added a serving of PHD Woman Green and Berries to this smoothie to give it an extra nutritional boost. It contains a combination of 24 vitamins and minerals and it also contains Biotin to maintain healthy hair and skin.
-1 serving PHD Woman Green Berries
– Large handful of frozen berries OR fruit of your choice. Bananas work well in smoothies.
– 1 teaspoon of crunchy peanut butter.
– 1 scoop whey protein powder.
– Small handful of ice.
Blend the ingredients together and serve in a Martini glass!
Eggs and Smoked Salmon
The mornings are all about multitasking. I leave my eggs to boil whilst I jump in the shower and allow them to cool as I get ready. I like my eggs to be extremely hard-boiled, but if you like your yolks runny you will have to shower quickly! All you need is two boiled eggs, some smoked salmon and your favourite vegetables. Eggs are loaded with protein and vitamin D and salmon is rich in Omega-3. Don’t be surprised if your brain starts decoding the matrix after eating eggs and salmon for breakfast.
The best thing about this breakfast is that you can prepare it the night before, which will help you to save a bit of time in the morning. I don’t have this breakfast very often as I prefer my breakfasts to be high in protein, but when I do have it- I go all out with the toppings. For this recipe I used Total 0%, frozen mixed berries and a dollop of crunchy peanut butter.
Never underestimate the power of good old-fashioned oats. Oats are rocket fuel! They are cheap to buy, quick and easy to make. Oats help to keep you feeling full for longer, which is perfect for days where I have to take a late lunch. Instead of spooning sugar into your oats to give it more taste, top your oats with fruit, nuts and flaxseed.
