You’re late getting up for that 9am AGAIN and just don’t have the time for breakfast… well think again! Organisation is key for us students, so planning what you will have for breakfast is all part and parcel, especially if you are trying to keep up with your ever fading healthy eating resolution this year. I’m here to help you on your way to getting the best, quickest and most important meal of the day, whilst staying away from those boring breakfast bars!
- Yoghurts: These are both healthy and versatile and you can grab a pot of natural yoghurt for as little as 50p at some supermarkets. Add one to your weekly shop as this is a super easy way of getting some good, quick food into your brekkie. Because of the versatility of natural yoghurt, you can literally add in anything you want. Grab some of your favourite berries, apples, raisins, (the list could be endless) and chuck a handful into your yoghurt for a tasty, sweet breakfast to eat when you’re in a rush – no waiting time required! If you’re often running super late and don’t have time to make it in the mornings, prepare it the night before in a small Tupperware, or buy smaller pots of yoghurt to chuck in your bag to eat en route! Yoghurt choice is literally endless in supermarkets so you can have whatever floats your boat: fruit, oats or even chocolate!
- Smoothies: These literally take two minutes to whip up with a hand blender or electric blender (if you’re lucky enough to own one!). Cut up your favourite fruit, add a splash of milk or a spoonful of natural yoghurt and simply whizz until smooth, or chunky, whatever takes your fancy. You can get plenty of vitamins and nutrients whilst making it a sweet, filling start to the day and yet again, the potential flavours are endless. If you don’t have time to drink it at home, put it in an empty bottle and slurp on your way to Uni!
- EGGS! I’m here to ask you, how do you like your eggs in the morning? They are so versatile that if you do have an extra half an hour to make breakfast, then have eggs: eggs on toast, with muffins, or bagels – the list is endless. Differing ways to make eggs can range from poached, fried, scrambled or even an omelette with your favourite cheeses, ham or vegetables. Eggs are a great source of protein and will also leave you feeling much fuller and ready for your day ahead in the midst of Uni life. They are also quite cheap and have a long shelf life – perfect for us students!
Everyone deserves a weekly treat though, so indulge yourself on a Friday or on your hardest day and get a croissant or Danish pastry and a coffee. They may not be the healthiest, but they are definitely the yummiest! Happy Breakfast-ing!
