Although we know the importance of having something in the morning, it is often the first thing to go when we’re pressed for time. My motto is: Eating something – no matter how small – is better than nothing.
Some quick and easy idea’s for a breakfast on the go:
- A fresh fruit with a closed handful of raw nuts or mixed seeds.
- A smoothie: throw together fat-free milk, yoghurt, and 2 handfuls of fresh or frozen fruit (possibly with some peanut butter or unsalted nuts) and drink on the go.
- Mini fritatas (see easy recipe from Family Fun Magazine – make on the weekend for the busy week ahead) with a slice of low GI toast.
- High fibre crackers with low fat cheese wedges.
- A fresh fruit with a small low fat or fat-free yoghurt.
- A low GI muffin (make in bulk and keep in the freezer until needed – here is a recipe for date-oat muffins you could try) with peanut butter.
- A toasted wholewheat english muffin topped with a slice of lean, shaved ham and scrambled egg. Some other ideas for quick toppings: baked beans, avocado slices, fat-free cottage cheese or peanut butter.
