We have all done it: extended our R.E.M. cycles by hitting the snooze button once or twice, maybe even three times. The payoff for those precious extra minutes of sleep often ends up with a mad dash out the door forgoing breakfast. This morning ritual couldn’t be more counterproductive. Your body has just spent hours resting and recovering from the prior day’s activities and now needs fuel to tackle the new day ahead.
Here are a few of my favorite on-the-go breakfasts that will help you get your day off to a great start. All of them can be adapted to meet your dietary lifestyle.
If you literally don’t have a moment to spare, then you are going to love a morning parfait. It can be prepared the night before, and all you need to do is open the fridge, grab it, and go. You will need a small container, store-bought or homemade granola, coconut yogurt, and optional fruit. I like using berries, apples, peaches, or bananas. Place some granola on the bottom of the container. Next, add some of the coconut yogurt, and then add the fruit. Repeat these layers and you are done! Grab a spoon and you are good to go.
With a little more planning and a bit more time in the morning, you can enjoy a delicious breakfast wrap. You don’t need many ingredients to create this protein-rich breakfast. Gather up your favorite veggies, some eggs and a tortilla of your choice (wheat, gluten-free, or corn).
The night before, place a variety of vegetables in a roasting pan with a bit of Olive Oil and roast at 450°F for around 20 minutes. I have used combinations of courgette, butternut squash, onions, garlic, carrots, red peppers, broccoli, and eggplant. Really, the list is endless. Save these veggies for the morning. In the morning, scramble up one or two eggs and add the veggies and seasoning. Place everything in a tortilla, and it’s a wrap. Out the door you go!
What is more convenient than breakfast in a cup? In the time it takes to brew up some coffee or make a cup of tea, you can blend together a nutrient-rich smoothie. Here is a basic smoothie recipe that you can adapt and make your own:
1 cup milk, almond milk, coconut milk, or rice milk
1 cup mixed berries – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries
1 cup spinach
1 cup water
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
