I’ve recently started my internship which means I’m up by 6:15am and out the door by 7:30am. Breakfast was a foreign language to me as I just never had the time for it. Unless you count having Chee Chong Fun, which is hardly a healthy or nutritious breakfast.
So, in order to save some money AND have a hearty breakfast, I decided to start bringing breakfast from home to eat at my desk. Life of an intern.
The thing is, breakfast-on-the-go can be for anyone. From you college goers to you working 9-5 people out there, I’ve found 5 recipes that will make breakfast preppin’ a breeze.
Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
1 banana (peeled and sliced)
2 tablespoons of peanut butter
1 cup of low fat milk
5 whole almonds
This is easy because you can peel and slice the bananas the night before and freeze them. Prepare all the ingredients near a blender and in the morning, all you gotta do is throw ’em into a blender and you’re ready to go!
Bananas are super healthy and you can let it whiz while you’re applying your second coat of mascara on, hun!
Mango Overnight Oats
3 tablespoons of rolled oats
Half a small cartoon of milk
1 teaspoon of chia seeds
Sliced mango (as much as you want)
Yoghurt, flavoured or unflavoured (as much as you want)
Assorted nuts and dried fruits
Get a mason jar and fill it with the rolled oats and chia seeds. Pour in the milk followed by the yoghurt. Gently place the fruits and assorted nuts and dried fruits on top. Place it in the fridge overnight and grab it before you leave for class/work! Easy peasy!
Best thing is? You can switch up the fruits to your liking!
5 cherry tomatoes
Sliced bell peppers
Slice the veggies the night before and place em in the fridge. The next morning, crack an egg into a cup and whisk it. Throw in the veggies with a pinch of salt, if necessary, and heat it in the microwave for just 3 minutes!
1 cup of whole rolled oats
Fruits (as much as you want)
Half a teaspoon of cinnamon
Pack all the ingredients into the zip-lock bag and bring it to work! All you need is a cup and a microwave! So you can chow down on this simple breakfast while answering your emails!
Any combination of fruits you want to eat
1 teaspoon of chia seeds
Chop up the fruits the night before and store it in the fridge. The next morning just add the honey and lime juice and mix it for some fruit party in your tummy!
