Plan Ahead For Easy Mornings

As we know, fueling our body with good, nutrient-dense food is key to a healthy lifestyle. It not only helps with cognitive function, but it also boosts our metabolism and gives us the energy we need to start the day. Here are some of my favorite healthy and tasty meal prep ideas for a satisfying breakfast. There is no reason that you can’t have a nutritious breakfast on the run! It’s my favorite meal of the day and choosing meals with lean protein, healthy carbohydrates, and good fats is the perfect way to boost energy to get off to a great start.

Oats and Grains

Often, I make a large pot of oats on the weekend to get me through the week. Then, I can quickly re-heat the oats for about a minute in the microwave and mix with a splash of almond milk. Top with your favorite toppings: berries, currants, raisins, sliced banana, cinnamon, almonds, walnuts, pecans, butter, maple syrup, etc. The fiber in oats helps to fill me up until lunch, even with a vigorous workout in between. Baked oatmeal is also a great meal prep recipe since it keeps well in the refrigerator to reheat in the morning.

I also cook oat bran and quinoa flakes for other hot breakfast cereal options. Sometimes I’ll even stir in some egg whites for a protein boost. Quinoa is another favorite nutritional powerhouse to add to your morning meal. It is an amino acid-rich (protein) seed that has a fluffy, creamy, slightly crunchy texture and a somewhat nutty flavor when cooked. Quinoa is high in protein and the protein it supplies is a complete protein, meaning that it includes all nine essential amino acids. Great for building and maintaining muscle. If you’ve never tried a quinoa breakfast bowl,  definitely give it a try!

Eggs

I love combinings whole eggs and egg whites for an easy breakfast scramble or omelette in the morning. It’s one of the purest and best sources of protein and it’s quick and easy. The protein in eggs is  97% digestible and its amino acids are superior in promoting muscle growth and tissue health, along with other protein sources that are high in leucine. I also love egg casseroles and egg muffins for easy make-ahead breakfast meals.

Protein Pancakes, Waffles, and French Toast

Pancakes can be an epic way to start your day if they are made with wholesome grains and added protein! You won’t miss the original versions when you find healthy substitutions that you look forward to eating. Pancakes, waffles, and french toast also reheat beautifully in an oven, warm buttered skillet, or toaster. You can portion these out into meal prep containers (these glass meal prep containers are my favorite), and add a side of fresh berries to round-out the meal. For topping your breakfast stack, I’d recommend a drizzle of real maple syrup, sugar-free maple syrup, or an easy homemade blueberry compote, blackberry compote, or raspberry compote. Fruit compotes are so easy, healthier than sugary syrups, and incredibly delicious!!

Protein Shakes and Smoothies

I have SO many protein shake recipes on this blog! It doesn’t get any easier than throwing everything in a blender when you are in a rush. You can also meal prep your smoothie ingredients by portioning them out into individual freezer containers or bags, that way all you have to do is add your liquid and protein powder in the morning for a quick and easy meal.
