Quick & Easy Recipes For Breakfast On The Go!

Mornings tend to get busy. Between getting ready yourself and sending your kids to school and finishing all household chores, we often miss the most important meal of the day – BREAKFAST! A good, healthy, nutritious breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and keeps it going throughout the day and is ideal if you’re working on a weight loss regimen. A hearty breakfast helps you to burn calories and gives you the required energy to forge on with your day. Many studies have shown that breakfast and good heath are intricately linked with each other. It lowers levels of bad cholesterol, decreases the possibility of diabetes and heart diseases and helps facilitate memory and concentration as well. Unfortunately, at times, in the early morning rush, we often forget to enjoy a lovely, wholesome breakfast. To avoid making this mistake, here are five wonderfully delicious “on-the-go” breakfasts that are both time-friendly and super easy to make and eat while you’re on your way to work.

apple sandwich

Apple, Almond Butter and Granola Sandwich

Your daily dose of fruits and cereal reinvented not only to make it more interesting but more convenient to prepare as well. All you need to do is slice the apples into circles, put some almond butter in between two slices and sprinkle some granola on it – and you’ve got yourself a super easy, super delicious, healthy sandwich that you can just walk out of the door within a few minutes. If you don’t have almond butter, substituting it with peanut butter works just as fine as well.

oats - bowl-of-fruit

Overnight Oats

One of the best ways to beat the morning rush is by preparing your breakfast the previous night. Soaking oats in a jar with some yogurt, flax seeds and some dried fruits and nuts is a great breakfast that you can pre make the night before and all you have to do the next morning, is to take it out of the fridge and run with it! You can experiment a lot with the overnight oats recipe. Instead of oats, you can go with granola, instead of yogurt you could go for skimmed milk and instead of dried fruits and nuts, you could go for fresh fruits and honey – whatever suits your fancy for that day, only one thing remains constant, the fact that it’s yummy every time!

smoothies - green-juice

Shakes and Smoothies

These things are power packed and really easy to make. All you have to do is pre decide your ingredients the night before and keep them in the fridge. Come morning, you just need to put all of it into a blender, give it a good whizz and a few minutes later, you’ve got yourself a tall glass of healthy goodness that you can carry with you right out of the house. The versatile nature of smoothies is the reason you can’t get bored of them. There’s no one particular recipe and there’s no hard and fast list of ingredients that you need to have. You could try only fruits, only vegetables or a mix of both and the best part is that they are extremely filling. Here are some interesting combinations that you can try: watermelon, beet and carrot; ginger, apple and strawberries; bananas, blueberries, milk, chia seeds (optional) and spinach.

fruit bowl

Fruit Bowl

This is literally one of the easiest things you can put together for yourself in the morning. Consuming your daily five portions (or more, if you fancy) of fruit is always a good way to start the day. You can adapt which fruits you would like to include in your bowl depending on the amount of time you have in the morning. The days you are a little bit relaxed, you could go with apples, pears, mangoes (yes, they are in season right now), melons, bananas, pomegranates – basically the fruits that require chopping and the days that you’re a little hard pressed for time, you can throw in some blueberries, strawberries, cherries, raspberries, grapes and the likes of which you don’t have to bother running through a chopping board. If you have the time, you could even squeeze some lemon juice and add a little bit of mint to it for that extra kick.

toast-open-sandwich

Open Sandwiches

Toast is perhaps one of the most popular of all breakfast foods. Running out of time – grab a toast, cab’s honking outside –grab a toast, meeting scheduled at 8 AM – grab a toast! Gets a little monotonous after some time doesn’t it? Unfortunately, in the mad rush, we often forget that toast does not need to be boring at all. In fact, one very interesting way to make your toast more desirable every morning is by turning it into an open sandwich. The best part about open sandwiches is that you can pick it up like a toast and have it on the go. All you need to do is toast the bread (which you would have done anyway) and instead of stopping there, move on to topping it up with some butter, a slice of cheese and some nicely sliced ham. You could even take the sweet route by spreading some peanut butter and topping it off with some fresh fruits, honey and seeds. The trick here is to keep the ingredients simple. Don’t go for ingredients that require cooking, peeling and chopping, instead go for fixings that you can take out of a jar or that you might have left over from last night’s dinner instead to keep it as simple and quick as possible.

At the end of the day, if your body doesn’t get fuel from food, it will not function. Many people skip breakfast because they’re rushing out the door, but with these quick and easy tips, you won’t have to worry about skipping the most important meal of the day anymore.
