If you follow me on Instagram you’ll probably know I’ve recently started to paying close attention to the food I’m putting into my body. It wasn’t until I started training at F45 and received my body scan that I realised, oh my word, my eating habits need to change.
I was never a huge fan of eating breakfast, I just didn’t feel hungry in the morning and would just eat a snack (usually high in sugar) and wait until lunch. Changing my diet was pretty crucial to getting the results I wanted to change my body so since then I’ve been mixing it up researching different meals and actually looking at the back of food nutrition information.
In this blog post, I’ve listed some of my key fave quick and easy healthy breakfast ideas to start your morning off. (I’ll promise I won’t include cakes, although that’s the dream.)
1. Special K
This is probably the quickest go-to healthy breakfast for any type of morning. I’ve tried the Special K forest berries which I love but it has slightly higher amounts of sugar in it which is why I’ve switched to the original version. This breakfast provides you with enough carbohydrates to start your day whilst getting important vitamins in your body such as Vitamin C, Iron, Vitamin D and lots more.
- 30g of Special K original
- Any desired amount of skimmed milk (coconut milk, soy milk or almond milk for vegan/dairy-free option)
- Plus any toppings for the ultimate healthy breakfast pic
2. Berry Smoothie
If you like raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries you’ll love this berry smoothie mix. The fact that you can also take it with you on the go in a drinks bottle makes this option even easier to get a quick on the go breakfast.
- 1 cup of frozen mixed berries
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 2 ice cubes
- 1/3 cup milk (soy milk or coconut milk for vegan/non-diary option)
- 2/3 cup high protein yoghurt (coconut yoghurt for vegan/dairy-free option)
- Cute glass for your fave Insta snaps
3. Fruit Salad & Coconut Yoghurt
You can never go wrong with a fruit salad, no matter what time of day it is. You can mix it up completely your own way, for example, I’m not a huge fan of bananas and I really wish I was because they’re great for a healthy snack. I’ve put a list of the ingredients I normally include for mine but feel free to make it your own. I would also normally add coconut yoghurt to add more to the breakfast to fill me up but feel free to use high protein yoghurt as a dairy alternative. It’s also worth noting to check how much sugar is in the yoghurt and try to find one with less, they usually ramp so much sugar into yoghurt.
- 2 oranges
- 100g strawberries
- 2 kiwis
- 50g blueberries
- 1 banana cut up (if that’s your thang)
- 1 cut up apple
- Optional: 1/2 cup high protein yoghurt (coconut yoghurt for vegan/dairy-free option)
