School has started and the usual hustle and bustle is putting most of us back to the grind! It’s easy to manage time by just rushing everything including food. However, I’ve found it especially difficult to cope on days where I skipped breakfast. Thus, I’m going to list out a few breakfast recipes that you can whip up in minutes to ensure that you start your day on a positive note.
Strawberry Oats Smoothie
I discovered this online and this has become one of my personal favorites. First, you take 1/2 cup of oats and blend them into a fine powder. After that, add in 1 cup of strawberries, 1/4th cup of Greek yogurt, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 tbsp honey (adjust according to your taste) and 3/4th cup of any milk of your choice and blend this mixture. You’ll get two glasses with the above measurements; tastiest when consumed within 30 minutes as the Chia seeds start to expand slowly.
Rich in protein, calcium and other healthy nutrients- this quick blend is one of the healthiest among the lot!
Have a little Indian twist, in case you’re craving for a bit of tang and spice early in the day. Go ahead with this and trust me, you will love it! This takes hardly 5-7 min to make. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and when they start crackling – add in onions and chilies while sautéing this mixture. Add in bell peppers, tomatoes, cut bread pieces, salt, turmeric and garam masala. Season with lemon juice and enjoy! Alternatively, substitute the bread with quinoa.
I haven’t forgotten everyone’s favorite breakfast foods: egg and avocado. Dedicated to you all, this recipe is the easiest on the list. Toast some whole wheat bread, smash some avocado and apply on the slices. Layer sunny-side up eggs and munch away. You could also cook the egg well and make a sandwich out of it!
If you have absolutely no time in the morning, this is one of the best options for you! Boost your day with chia seeds instead of caffeine. Very basic ingredients for this – take a small glass or jar and add equal amounts of oats, Greek yogurt, and any milk of your choice. Get creative with toppings by adding fruit, dark chocolate, peanut butter and jam, or simply lacing with honey and refrigerate at night. In the morning, you can just grab and go!
