Quick and Easy Breakfast Ideas

March 19, 2018

I could probably eat breakfast foods for every meal of the day. Mornings are busy, I get it. Sometimes its easier to grab something like a muffin or bar, or maybe have nothing but coffee in the morning. Having a good breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day. A healthy, protein rich breakfast is key to keeping blood sugar levels balanced and energy levels up. It also keeps you from over eating later on in the day. I always opt for something with protein, carbs and fat to keep me full until lunch.

 

Here are some quick on the go breakfast ideas:

 

Favourite Smoothies:

 

Almond Butter Cup

  • 1 cup nut milk

  • 1 tbsp almond butter

  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (I usually use a vegan one)

  • 2 tsp cacao nibs

  • 1 frozen banana

 

Peanut Butter and Jelly

  • 1 cup nut milk

  • 1/2 cup mixed berries

  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice

  • 1 tbsp chunky organic peanut butter

  • 2 tsp hemp hearts

 

Coconut Mango 

1 cup nut milk

1 tbsp coconut butter

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 cup frozen mango 

2 tsp hemp hearts

1/4 frozen avocado

Chia Pudding:

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1/2 cup nut milk

Method:

Mix together and store in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or overnight.

 

Top with your favourites in the morning. Add a scoop of protein powder, top with nut butter, berries or banana, hemp hearts or cacao nibs for some crunch!

 

Protein Pancakes:

I love to make a bunch of protein pancakes in the morning to have throughout the week or even as a snack with some peanut butter.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop protein powder (again I like vegan or whey, especially for baking with) 

  • 1/3 cup oats

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • cinnamon to taste

  • splash of almond milk

Method:

Mix all ingredients together in a blender and cook like regular pancakes. Add more or less almond milk to make your pancakes thicker or thinner. Top with good quality maple syrup, fruit or nut butter!

 

 

Other easy options:

Seedy bread or whole wheat sourdough with smashed avocado, drizzle of lemon, sea salt and hemp hearts. Add an egg if you would like more protein!

Enjoy!
