THREE EASY WORKDAY BREAKFASTS
In a bid to return to pre-summer productivity levels, I've been trying to get my morning routine back in place. One crucial element: breakfast. Even though I typically feel like reaching for something sugary first thing in the morning, I know that a combination of slow-release carbs and protein is a much better way to set myself up for the day. (Adulthood, eh?). Here are three quick, easy, and delicious ways to do just that.
1. QUINOA PORRIDGE
Swap oats for nutrient heavy quinoa (cook a batch in advance and warm it up on the stove with high-protein almond milk), then bulk it out with chopped nuts, berries, honey...whatever takes your fancy. For autumn, sliced fresh apple or applesauce, cinnamon, and a dollop of greek yoghurt makes for a particularly pleasing topping.
Or you can make it savoury by adding some sliced avocado and a couple of soft-boiled eggs. Sprinkle with chilli flakes and a dash of tamari. Yes.
2. BANANA OMELETTE
A non-fiddly twist on the much-loved two ingredient banana pancake recipe. Just whisk one mashed, ripe banana with two eggs and cook in coconut butter, as you would an omelette (fold in half when it's ready and don't let it get too firm). Top with yoghurt and fruit. Add a tablespoon of maca to the mix for an extra energy boost.
3. GREEK YOGHURT WITH BLUEBERRIES & ALMOND BUTTER
OK, so this isn't exactly a recipe - more a list of ingredients. But protein-rich greek yoghurt, antioxidant rich blueberries, and 'good fat'-heavy almond butter is a two minute, low sugar dream breakfast combo. It's also quite delicious.
