Supercharge your start to the day

0

WE ARE all familiar with the well-known mantras, handed down by Mothers through the years since the dawn of time:

How about, ”Eat breakfast like a King …… and dinner like a pauper!”, or maybe ” You must eat your breakfast, it’s the most important meal of the day!”

Anyway, here’s a thing. It turns out, as usual our Mother’s were actually right and these days there’s no need for us to put up with a soggy bowl of cereal or burnt piece of toast in a morning.

There are so many different options to tempt us to breakfast like a King every day.

Here are ten interesting, crazy, quirky but ultimately very satisfying ideas for a power breakfast to supercharge start to the day…

GOOD MORNING BREAKFAST SALAD

Salad for breakfast? A zesty salad, with a fresh mix of green leaves, topped with avocados and smoked salmon giving it plenty of protein should get you through the day with no troubles.

MAPLE CUSTARD OATMEAL

Love oatmeal but need an extra hit of protein in the morning? Then mix oatmeal with sweet maple syrup making it thick like a custard.

Then pack it with protein by adding eggs that are whisked in with the milk and cooked slowly with the oats to create a creamy, custardy (and protein-rich) wonder.

BREAKFAST POWER BARS

Take almonds, pumpkin seeds, cranberries and mejdool dates then just toss everything in a blender to get these no-bake breakfast bars. Tuck one of these in your purse or gym bag and you’ll never buy the packaged ones again.

MASALA OATMEAL

Like oats, but don’t like sweet stuff? Why not try a savoury oatmeal in the morning? Mix your oatmeal with veggie broth, instead of milk, curry paste, onions and tomatoes. Even better, each serving has 10 g of protein to keep you full until lunch.

CARROT CAKE CUSTARD OATMEAL

Oatmeal again, but this time mixed with grated carrots and walnuts, just like carrot cake for breakfast This oatmeal, made with eggs has lots of protein and vitamins (and a hint of your favourite dessert) to energize your morning routine.

CRUSTLESS MINI QUICHES

Quiche without pastry. These mini quiche go perfectly with toasted English muffins, for an easy and filling breakfast sandwich. Just whisk eggs with milk, cheddar, parsley and salt in a medium bowl. Season with fresh pepper. Divide mixture into prepared muffin pan.

GREEN GODDESS SMOOTHIE BOWL

Simplify your morning with a healthy, energising smoothie bowl. This easy, eye-pleasing meal starts with a fruit yoghurt base to which is added blended avocado, lettuce, apple and banana, meaning it’s packed with protein, fibre and vitamins.

BANANA COCONUT TOAST

To grainy brown toasted bread, add natural almond or cashew butter, thinly sliced banana, flaky Maldon sea salt and shaved or grated unsweetened toasted coconut. Forget avocado on toast. With 13 g of protein and 8 g of fibre, this is the smartest slice around and it takes only minutes to make!

PARMESAN OATMEAL WITH MUSHROOMS AND ROASTED SQUASH

Tired of sweet oatmeal? Try a savoury version made with mushrooms, squash and parmesan instead. It has 19 grams of protein in each serving. Actually ….it’s practically dinner!

EASY EGGS BENEDICT WITH HEALTHY HOLLANDAISE

Classic hollandaise is made with lots of butter, but trade it for Greek yogurt and get amazing results. Add a favourite fast-food ….. hash browns which are usually deep fried, but bake them instead using English Muffins and, wow, are they good!
