Ok. Let’s face it. No one has time for breakfast right? WRONG! Here’s the thing…it’s all about your perspective. So while we may not have time to sit down and have a leisurely breakfast, there are shortcuts that we can take that will still provide us with the nutrients we need for brain acuity and balanced blood sugar through out the day.
And it starts with breakfast. The most important meal of the day. Studies have shown that breakfast improves concentration and alertness. I could go on about breakfast, but this section is about recipes, so let’s get on with it!
I want you to focus on adding a good protein, fat AND even greens when you can – and one of the recipes for the breakfast smoothie actually sneaks a little in!
There are not in any particular order
1/4 cup oats
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
1 tsp chia seeds
berries, cinnamon (optional)
Place all (except almonds) in a mason jar in fridge overnight and before you eat for breakfast, add the almonds for crunch and protein! Take it with you and eat on the train or when you get into the office.
Quick tip for Oatmeal
If you love oatmeal, but don’t have time to make it in the morning, make a big batch of slow cooking steel cut oats on Sunday evening and divide into separate containers and refrigerate. Then take out when needed for the week and while I am not a big proponent for microwaves, for those of you who are truly in a rush, microwave in a glass container, add berries, a little MCT oil or Ghee or Kerry Gold butter, walnuts and sliced almonds and take it to go.
