5 quick tips
Your OMAD should be a Vegan Protein Smoothie
Normally I skip breakfast, but most people believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Studies from about a decade or so ago have shown that women who skip breakfast consume an average of 100 calories more than those who eat breakfast (maybe ). It is also said that enjoying a healthy breakfast in the morning can also keep your blood sugar levels even, which will help you stay more alert and in a better mood.
If you’re a fan of breakfast, it is sometimes hard to find the time to fix a good one in the morning. Here are a few quick ideas that take hardly any time at all to prepare, and most of them you can carry with you and enjoy on your way to work or when you get there. I prefer to wait to eat these meals for brunch instead.
1. Whole grain cereal with skim milk
All you need is a bowl and a spoon. This should take you about 1 minute to prepare and 5 minutes to eat. A nice and easy breakfast idea when you are running late.
2. Breakfast Parfait
You can make your own healthy version of the breakfast parfait. Put some low-fat vanilla yogurt in a container. Keep some snack-sized bags of granola in your pantry and some small bags of frozen berries in your freezer. Or use fresh fruit when available. Just grab everything as you head out the door and enjoy your parfait at work.
3. Whole Wheat Bagel with Peanut Butter (add a piece of fruit)
Toast a whole-wheat bagel with some peanut butter for a filling breakfast. Grab a piece of “portable” fruit such as an apple or a banana before you leave the house and breakfast is done.
4. Boiled Egg Sandwich
Keep a few boiled eggs in your fridge for a protein rich and filling egg sandwich for breakfast. Just slice the egg on some honey wheat bread and sprinkle a little salt on top. If you’d like you can add a small amount of mayonnaise as well.
5. Breakfast Smoothie
Breakfast Smoothies were invented for busy people. Pour some milk or yogurt and juice in your blender and toss in some berries or a banana and a scoop of protein powder.
