Lets talk breakfasts. So Breakfast literally means Break the fast. For many people mornings can be a little hectic and too often we reach for cereal which are loaded with sugar . below are a few quick, simple healthier breakfast options – a few of can even be prepped the night before, to save you precious time the next next morning. who said eating healthy meant starving yourself! . so step away from the cereal and
- Overnight Oats
100g of Rolled oats , 75g of FULL FAT Greek or natural yoghurt. and 250ml of almond milk . mix together, cover and leave in the fridge overnight, the next morning just add your favourite berries and hey presto breakfast is all ready for you to eat . There are a ton of ideas on Pintrest for overnight oats so go check them out and create your own favourite.
2. Garden fry up – Boil up a couple eggs, throw some Spinach, Mushrooms and tomatoes in a little coconut Oil and voila – This one I got from the Deliciously Ella Book
3.Eggs, Eggs , Eggs – How do you like your eggs in the morning ( hands up if you just sang that line heehee! ) Boiled, poached, dippy , scrambled – go for it. eggs are a great source of protein and brilliant for keeping you filled up until lunch – feeling lavish add in some smoked salmon
these Mini Frittatas are brilliant for pre cooking and will store in the fridge for about 3 days , making them a great healthy choice for those super busy mornings if they last that long – in our house , they disappear as fast as I make them!!!
Mini Frittatas with tomato and Rocket , you can pretty much add in anything really – mushrooms , lean ham, chicken, feta cheese.
Prep time 15mins
Cooking time 20 mins
These could be eaten cold or warm , so again could be made the night before or a day when you have a little extra time
1 tbsp extra Virgin olive oil
1 onion chopped
3 tbsp almond milk (otherwise I just use normal milk )
6 cherry tomatoes – quarted
1 handful of rocket or spinach leaves – chopped
1. Preheat oven to 175/gas mark 4. Grease a 6 hole giant muffin tray
2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion over a low heat until caramilsed
3. In a bowl whisk the eggs and milk together, then stir in the tomatoes,rocket and onion. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper
4. Divde the mixture among the muffin tin and bake for approx 20mins or until they set. Allow to cool a little before removing them from the tin.
4.Fruit and Yogurt – Probably my most go to breakfast . I use Yeo Valley Full fat natutral yogurt. (Low fat/0%fat are a big no no for me – the fat is removed and replaced instead with things like sugar to try and improve the taste post fat removal making it a lot worse for you than if they left the Fat in. We need good fats in order to burn fat plus its good for our skin – hello J-LO glow!) . I recently discovered the huge bags of Frozen berries in Tesco – £2 for a huge bag approx $2.50 . they last me a good week and as the berries have been frozen they hold the nutrients much longer – more antioxidants for me yipppeee. I defrost a few in a bowl in the fridge overnight. I then add them to my yoghurt the next morning and I also add in a teaspoon of seeds – pumpkin and chia .
5. Stir Fry – sounds more like a lunch or dinner option but there are no rules to say it can’t be a breakfast option! . take some steak or chicken or turkey and fry it up with some spinach/kale , mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes – any of your fave veggies and enjoy!
Do let me know if you try any of these or if you have your own breakfast favourite!
