5 healthy and simple breakfast ideas

05 September 2014, 09:33

Nairobi - We're always told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And unless you make a concerted effort to wake up timeously - enabling you to cook breakfast, eat said breakfast and get to work on time, chances are you are just too busy to think about food until lunch-time rolls around, by which point you are stark raving ravenous!

Here are 5 quick and simple breakfasts that you can make ahead of time and take to work. No pots, pans or spatulas needed!

1. Boiled eggs
This is a favourite on the low carb Banting diet. Boil 2 eggs the night before for no longer than 10 mins. Once cool, pop in the fridge and then zap them into a small container to carry to work. You can eat them with a block of cheese or sprinkle them with some coarse salt. Be considerate and eat them away from your colleagues' desks. The smell can be a little offputting for some.

2. Homemade granola
Make your own granola and store it in an airtight container at work. When your tummy begins to rumble after that first coffee, simply place a small amount in a bowl and top with a little milk. Filling and deliciously crunchy!

3. Roasted bacon and apple wedges
Here is another Banting-friendly option. The protein in the meat and the fibre in the apple keep you full for the duration of the morning. These are easy to carry in a small tuppaware and won't mess.

4. Bircher muesli
A healthy boost if ever there was one! This breakfast needs a little advance preparation but requires minimal effort in the morning. Simply let the oats soak in the fridge overnight and when ready to eat, add your favourite toppings - eg. berries/fruit, nuts, seeds, cinnamon, coconut flakes, nut butter, honey or a variation thereof.

5. Healthy muffins
Most muffin recipes claim to be healthy but contain a truck-load of sugar. These can be made and kept in the freezer. All they need is a quick nuke in the microwave to give them that freshly-baked texture. You can add a filling of cheese or butter - or just eat it as is! Yum.
