Quick and Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Most days I don't eat breakfast until about 10 am. I practice Intermittent Fasting throughout the week, so 10 am is about the time I break my fast. I usually try to have something ready to eat right at that time, so quick breakfasts are essential.
With our busy schedules, everyone needs a quick yet nutritious breakfast sometimes regardless of whether you fast or not. I've put together a list of a few of my favorite quick and healthy breakfasts.
Oatmeal with fruit and granola
1/2 Cup Gluten Free Quick Cooking Rolled Oats
1 Cup of Boiling Water
1/4 Cup of Frozen Blueberries
2 Tablespoons of Hemp Seeds
1/4 Cup of Granola
1 Tablespoon of Honey
Place the oats and blueberries in a bowl. Pour the boiling water over the oats and berries and cover. Allow them to sit for 3 minutes. Remove cover and stir the oats. Top cooked oats with Granola and Hemp seeds then drizzle with honey.
Blueberry and Spinach Smoothie
1 Cup plain Coconut Water
1 Frozen Banana
1 Cup Baby Spinach
1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries
1 Scoop Protein Powder (Vanilla)
Add all of the ingredients to your blender, blend, pour and enjoy
*Add additional ice/water to create the desired consistency.
Nutritional Bars and Fruit
Sometimes when I am on the go I will just grab a nutritional bar and a piece of fruit. I make sure the bars I eat are natural food bars, don't have TONS of added sugar and have only a few ingredients. Some of my favorite bars to grab are:
I like to have a banana, apple or hard boiled eggs along with the bar. I try to limit having bars to the earlier part of the day or before a workout so can use the natural sugars for energy.
These are just a few quick breakfasts I turn to when I am in a hurry.
