3 Easy & Healthy On The Go Breakfasts
Long gone are the days where we all have time to sit down and properly enjoy breakfast on a weekday. I am finding that my breakfasts are becoming increasingly flighty and I know I am not the only one! In continuation of my on the go lunches, these are a few of my favourite and easy on the go breakfasts. Prepped in advance, these can be eaten at your desk, in the car, on the train – well; they can be eaten pretty much anywhere!
Chia Seed Pudding
Chia seeds are an absolute powerhouse of goodness and so its no surprise they are classified a superfood. High in zinc, calcium, iron and many other vitamins, this breakfast is an excellent way to kick start the day. Prep this the night before and store in the fridge for the morning!
3 tablespoons chia seeds
250ml almond milk (although any other nut milk would work!)
1 tbspn date syrup or honey
1 tspn cinnamon
Suggestions for the topping: nut butter, desiccated coconut, fresh fruit, pumpkin seeds, dried nuts and fruit
This couldn’t be simpler. Mix the chia seeds with the milk in a jar or airtight container. Add the date syrup or honey and the cinnamon. Mix together and then leave in the fridge overnight (or for 8 hours until it’s set). Top with whatever you fancy in the morning – I like fruit and desiccated coconut!
Another super easy breakfast that can be prepped and stored in the fridge overnight for grab and go in the morning. Try this super simple base recipe and adapt the toppings!
100g of yogurt (greek or coconut yog works well)
150g rolled oats
150ml of unsweetened milk (cashew, hazelnut, almond milk all delicious here)
1 tbspn chia seeds (optional)
2 tbspn of sweetener (maple syrup, honey, date syrup)
1 tspn of cinnamon or ginger
Combine all the ingredients together and put in an airtight container in the fridge. Leave for 4 hours or preferably overnight!
Top with: granola, fresh fruit, dried fruits and nuts, nut butter, coconut or jam!
Granola will take a little longer to prep but it is so worth it to have this in the fridge. Once baked and cooled, granola can pretty much go with anything. Can be served with yogurt in a Tupperware to take to work or even on top of your chia seed pudding or overnight oats! Here is a super simple granola recipe to get you going.
This will make up to 15 servings!
2 tspn coconut oil
125ml maple syrup
2 tbspn honey
1 tspn vanilla extract
300g rolled oats
50g pumpkin seeds
100g cashew nuts
100g dried fruit
50g flaked coconut
Heat the oven to about 150C. Mix the coconut oil, maple syrup, honey and vanilla in a large bowl. Tip in all the ingredients, apart from the coconut and dried fruit and mix.
Tip the granola across a baking tray (use two if need be). Bake for 15 minutes and then add the coconut and dried fruit. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until beautifully golden brown (and your kitchen smells divine!) Let cool and store in an airtight container.
