I don’t know about you but I certainly don’t have time to cook breakfast in the morning. Between getting ready and getting dressed I barely have time for anything else. It turns out that I’m not alone. The majority of people I know don’t even eat breakfast and their number one excuse is lack of time to prepare anything. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day since it jump-starts our energy and digestion and aids in setting the tone for our metabolism. When we skip breakfast, our bodies aren’t sure what to do and it can send us into a tail spin of blood sugar problems, constipation and unhealthy snacking habits. Add in coffee on empty stomach and we’re surely in for a downward spiral. I’d love to share my 3 favorite breakfast dishes for busy people. The best part is all three can be prepared at work or the night before, leaving your mornings stress-free.
- Avocado Toast—This is simple, fast and easy. Most offices provide a toaster and if yours doesn’t, bring in your own. Pop in some whole grain or gluten free bread and then smooth on some mashed avocado, sliced tomato and a little sea salt.
- Instant Steel Cut Oats-This is one of my go-to breakfasts. It literally requires dumping a packet of oats into a bowl or mug and adding hot water! You have to appreciate that simplicity. I also love to add hemp seeds and blueberries to mine.
- Breakfast Smoothie—A smoothie can be easily made the night before so that it doesn’t take up your precious morning time. Store it in an air tight mason jar and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to run out the door, just don’t leave it behind! Check out my favorite smoothie arecipe here
Let’s not let time dictate our health anymore. With very little preparation and a few simple steps you’ll be on your way to having a great and nutritious day.
