Eating breakfast is the hardest meal for most people, especially mom’s. You have a bunch of kids to pack lunches for, they normally wait until 5 minutes before you have to leave to say they want to eat, which is the most annoying thing on the planet. Or you have a long drive to work and you barely have time to make sure your eyebrows are drawn on. Whatever the reason I get it. Mornings are what sets my entire day, by getting in a good breakfast packed with protein it makes the rest of my meals follow. Skipping it is the worst thing you can do, next thing you know your blowing $30 a month on Starbucks drive thru bagels.
Here are 5 easy Breakfast ideas for busy mornings
Protein shake and oats- Take one scoop of Protein powder with 8 oz of water or almond milk up to you, and add in 1 packet of steel cut oats, shake and chug. Or if you have a little more time you can mix that same protein shake but heat up the oats in the microwave.
Smoothie- I use the pre-made frozen fruit and veggie bags from Costco, add almond milk, Ice cream sandwich protein powder and 2 scoops of opti-greens powder to add in some extra digestive enzymes, pro-biotics and veggies. Blend and enjoy.
Greek yogurt with granola- I like the Light and Fit Strawberry cheesecake flavor, Greek yogurt has way less sugar and more protein than the normal kind. It is a little rough on taste but trust me this one tastes the best. Top it off with some granola (watch serving size, granola is usually packed with sugar and calories) or fresh berries.
Pre- make egg cups- I got this recipe from a friend who is a full time student. You pre-make a couple eggs or egg whites and a pack of sausage. Once the eggs and sausage are done put them into containers for the next couple days and sprinkle with cheese. They heat up well when you get to work and are the perfect morning meal.
