Whether you enjoy breakfast or not, it's extremely important and beneficial to fuel your body early on to ensure you have enough calories to keep you going and make sure you're full of energy to perform at your best from the get go.
Here is a list of quick and delicious options to do just that. We hear too many excuses from people who say they don't have time to eat breakfast in the morning as they're always hurrying. Whether you're working from home or running late, there's something for everyone to make sure you stay fully fuelled for the day ahead. So no more excuses!
Nut Butter, Banana & Chia Seed Toast
This is simply a different take of peanut butter on toast. Simply choose your favourite nut butter, eg. Peanut, almond, cashew, etc and spread it on two toasted slices of granary wholemeal bread, plain wholemeal bread is fine if you don't have that, top them with slices of banana and sprinkle them with chia seeds. LA Tip: sprinkle some cinnamon on top for added flavour and fat burning!
Berries, Yoghurt and Whey Protein Smoothie
Add some fruit such as berries and banana to half a tub of greek yoghurt and a scoop of whey protein (we recommend LA Whey Gold) along with some milk to a blender. Blend until smooth and if in a rush, add to your travel cup for a tasty liquid breakfast. LA Tip: add 50g of oats to increase carb content for extra energy.
Quinoa Fruit Salad
A deliciously fresh fruit salad that's quick and simple to make. Add a few scoops of quinoa along with some strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and sliced mango to a bowl. Add a drizzle of honey and squeeze in some lime. The fruit and quinoa will provide a quick and steady boost of energy to keep you going until lunchtime. LA Tip: prepare the night before and put in the fridge to chill it overnight for a crisp taste in the morning.
Avocado & Egg French Toast
Full of protein and healthy fats, it's tasty and nutritious, what's not to love about this meal? Simply add a few eggs and a bit of milk to a bowl and mix. Dip a few slices of granary/wholemeal bread into the mixture and then fry in a pan for a few minutes, cooking both sides. Use coconut or olive oil as they're much healthier that other oils when cooking. When finished, mash an avocado and in a bowl with a bit of olive oil and with a knife, spread it on the toast and enjoy warm! LA Tip: add a few fried/poached eggs on top if you want more protein.
Egg Breakfast Muffins
These are really effortless to make, great tasting and last all week. In a bowl blend a few eggs with some spinach, few slices of cooked bacon and some cheese. Pour mixture into muffin tins and cook for 20 mins. Let cool and then serve and enjoy. LA Tip: Store in fridge and in the morning take 1-2 muffins with you for a quick and easy breakfast on the go!
Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie
This delicious drink takes less than 5 mins to make and will fill you up for hours. In a blender add one banana, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 200-300ml of semi-skimmed/skimmed milk. Blend for 30-60 seconds and it's ready to drink! LA Tip: Add a scoop of whey protein before blending to pump up the protein content.
Quinoa & Chia Porridge
A great alternative to oats for a hot breakfast and packed full of protein and complex carbs. In a pot simply cook some quinoa in milk (cow, soy or almond depending on preference), sprinkling some chia seeds, ground cinnamon and nutmeg in the mix. Bring to boil, simmer and stir. Serve in a bowl, adding some berries and a drizzle of honey on top. LA Tip: Add some nuts on top to increase protein and add some crunch!
