Hi Friends! I’m loving everyone’s 2017 #SweatLife activities across social media. Please keep engaging! Also please keep sending queries and things that you need some tasty help with… Which leads to today’s post! If you’re heading across from the Facebook Live post, hello! If you want to watch me put all three of these dishes together for the first time click here.
One of your biggest concerns is either going to the gym in the morning and then going straight to work, or going to the gym, coming home but having minimal time to have your breakfast before heading off to work. Firstly I totally agree… it can be hard to make sure you sweat and eat right and then go to work. Well its not if you then go to a quick grab and go from the store after the session, but this adds up. The other option is to not make the gym altogether… but we know thats not an option either.
I mean you get up… head to the session and then shower then head to work… this can take some time, especially when we are working towards smashing some career goals. So how do we work in the essential breakfast and the sweat session and make it ourselves? Enter my 3 simple healthy options and Hacks to get you through that often morning conundrum.
The following 3 options, all take less than 1 minute, they not only reduce your time, you save money and they are that easy that it could be your first time picking up the pan. I have also included simple tips on how to prepare and make it even easier!!!
So here you go my friends.. and again if you want to watch me put all these together and show how easy it is… click here!
Option 1. Blueberries Breakfast smoothie
If you have been looking at my Instagram story you are aware I am loving my Mason Jar situation… I make my smoothie before I leave and then its already to go straight after the workout… a much cheaper way to enjoy that refreshing option after the gym
1 1/2 Cups Almond Milk
1 handful of Spinach
1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Scoop of Protein Powder or an Egg
1. Place all the ingredients into a Vitamix or blender and blitz until smooth
Option 2. Protein Rice Cracker
This is if you are in a serious rush… with the peanuts you get that protein you need for the day ahead and it activates the hormones responsible for recovery and lean muscle wins!
2 Rice Crackers
1-2 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter
Pinch of Salt
Pinch of Cinnamon
1. Spread peanut butter onto rice cracker, sprinkle with cinnamon and salt and devour
Option 3. Power Scrambled Eggs
This is the ultimate nourishment! The key here is simple… cook your quinoa the night before, or just make extra when you make some for your dinner… Then in the morning put them in a bowl and your ready to go! Combined with the egg it is a serious protein morning!
1 Tbsp Olive oil
Pinch of Chili Flakes
2/3 Cup Cooked Quinoa
Pinch of Salt & Pepper
- Pour oil into a small non-stick frypan on medium to low heat… add in your chili flakes and cook for 30 seconds before cracking your eggs directly into the pan
- Using a whisk or a fork scramble and allow to cook for 1 minute before taking off the heat and mixing again. Allow the residual heat to finish them off
- Sprinkle over salt, pepper and more chili if you wish, serve in a bowl with quinoa & avocado and more olive oil if you are super keen.
