3 Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Eating breakfast just like every meal is important, it helps kick start your metabolism and provides you with the energy to start your day. Eating a breakfast which is high in protein with carbohydrates helps keep you fuller longer whilst feeding your muscles but unfortunately we often skip breakfast as we raced to get the kids ready for school and ourselves to work.
To help you out I’ve put together my 3 favourite breakfast meals which are super quick and easy to put together for you to woof down before you race out the door for the day.
Quite possibly my favourite breakfast (even more so the B&E’s) is overnight proats. Make them the night before and store in the fridge and they’ll give you a refreshing breakfast on a warm morning.
1 serve (45g) oats
1 scoop of your favourite flavour whey protein
1 cup 250ml of almond milk
Mixed all of the ingredients together and store them in the fridge overnight. Add mixed berries or ground cinnamon for added anti-oxidants
