How bout a quickie…

beforefor breakfast I mean.

We saw how instant breakfasts mess our bodies up. Now let’s look at some super quick, healthy & delicious breakfast options that will kick those instant breakfasts in the nuts!

Under 5 min Breakfasts:

300 seconds…! Health you can cook up when your Windows XP boots up!

Option 1:
– 2 strings mozzarella cheese
– 1 slice sprouted grain bread toasted
– 1 tbls almond butter/peanut butter
Option 2:
– 1 cup milk
– 1 cup fruit
– 2 eggs (sunny side up or hard boiled)
Option 3:
Larabars are a good substitute for cereal bars.
Option 4:
– Mix 2 eggs, some frozen vegetables, 1/2 tbls olive oil, sat & spices in a cup/bowl. Microwave for 1-2 mins on high.
– Eat with 1 cup milk on the side
Option 5:
– In a bowl mix 1 cup cottage cheese and some fruit. Top with nuts.
Option 6:
– In a bowl mix 1 cup yogurt and some fruit. Top with nuts.

5-10 min Breakfasts:

How hard is it to wake up 10mins early? Or how hard is it to go to work 10mins late?
Option 1:
– Preheat oven to 375 C.
– Mix 2 eggs, some frozen vegetables, 1/2 tbls oil, sat & spices in a cup/bowl.
– Bake for 20-25 mins.
– Eat with glass of milk on the side.
Option 2:
– Preheat oven to 375 C.
– Mix 2 eggs & a handful of shredded cheese.
– Bake for 15-20 mins.
– Season with salt & spices to taste. Eat with glass of milk on the side.
Option 3:
– Place a slice of cheese or some shredded cheese on a slice of sprouted whole grain bread (or even almond bread!)
– Throw some pasta sauce & a bunch of vegetables on top.
– Broil in oven for 5-10 mins.
– Enjoy your bread pizza for breakfast.
Option 4:
– Preheat oven to 375 C.
– Place a handful of shredded cheese and a bunch of vegetables in a bowl.
– Add salt & spices to taste. Bake for 10-15 mins depending on vegetables used.
– Eat with glass of milk on the side.
Option 5:
– Blend 1 cup of milk, 1 scoop of whey isolate, 1 cup of fruit (apple or banana or berries or mixed fruits) & quarter cup of nuts (almonds, cashews etc.)
– Or make it the previous night and just grab & go in the morning.
Option 6:
– Fruit & cheese sandwich. Toasted bread, couple of slices of cheese & the fruits you love. Stack them up. Trust me… you’ll love it.

10-15mins Breakfasts:

A little longer than the previous ones. But definitely satiating & awesome. 15mins is not too much… your computer is probably still starting up if your on Windows Vista.
Option 1:
– Vegetable omelet with a cup of milk.
Option 2:
– Scramble two eggs with some salsa.
– On a corn taco place a handful of canned beans, the scrambled eggs & 1 tbls of sour cream. Munch!
Option 3:
– Cook eggs on a skillet… sunny side up works but make sure its not runny.
– Cut up some avocado.
– Avocado egg & cheese sandwich
Option 4:
– Get dosa batter (or make before hand!)
– Pour batter on skillet. Crack open an egg, dump a load of vegetables & sprinkle some shredded cheese on the batter while it is being cooked.
– Each dosa will be pretty giant. So have one or even two with a glass of milk and you’re good to go.
Option 5:
– In an electric rice cooker add rice (wild rice is the best), frozen vegetables, spices, some meat (if you like meat that is), a tablespoon of butter or olive oil and vegetable/chicken broth.
– Turn on.
– Eat fake biriyani for breakfast.

These are recipes that I have made and had for breakfast some time or the other. Try these out and I’m sure you will come up with your own twist.

Have a look at the ingredients used to make these breakfasts. Instant breakfasts (even with the added vitamins & minerals) cant hold a candle! Seriously… invest the little time required on food prep and get the monstrous health benefits. Try these recipes out for a couple of weeks and let me know how you like them.

Life’s more than eating crappy junk and feeling like shit all day! Get real and feel the difference for yourself.
