Today I thought I would share with you some of my favourite breakfast meals, after all it is the most important part of your day!
The best part about training in the afternoon is that I can wake up slowly. My boyfriend makes me a cup of coffee – as generally the sound and smell is enough to get my sleepy butt out of bed (LOL) then I start my breakfast, which I generally do for the two of us and then have coffee number two! It’s incredibly enjoyable to rise with the sun, enjoying every minute I have in the comfort of my home. My boyfriend on the other hand is an early riser, not eating first, but actually cleaning the apartment (thank goodness for that because the apartment is always spick and span! :P)
But back to the FOOD portion of my morning, it is incredibly important for me to have breakfast very soon after I walk up. I get “hangry” pretty fast!
So here goes! This is my daily breakfast when I have time…. It’s still pretty quick because I am impatient in the morning, but I will also provide my “Roll out of bed” breakfast too!!
- one egg
- egg whites (from carton) – as much as you choose
- 1 tortilla
- 1/4 avocado
- 1/2 tomato
- spices to taste (for example: salt, pepper, mayo, salsa)
** You can also get creative and add what ever other veggies or protein you want (cheese, BACONNNNNNN????) if you have the time 🙂
Start by putting a little bit of butter in your pan. Wait until warm then crack egg and add egg whites to the pan. I like to scrabble my eggs, but this is all up to your personal preference. At this time while the eggs are not fully cooked, I add my salt and pepper – and most recently a small amount of green onions for taste! Once the eggs are cooked, lay out your tortilla and put in your condiments – this is also to your taste, but here is what I enjoy: a little bit of mayo, salsa, 1/2 tomato and the 1/2 avocado. I then top that off with my eggs and roll up my breakfast burrito!
You can add, change or play with many different flavours in your burrito, it’s up to you to find out what you like the most! 🙂
ROLL OUT OF BED OATS (commonly known as Overnight Oats)
- jar or container
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 3 heaping table spoons of plain Greek yogurt (0%)
- 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (or milk of your choice)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- teaspoon vanilla extract
- honey or maple syrup to your preference
- raspberries (frozen or fresh) – to fill the container (or any other berry)
The night before your early morning, put all ingredients in your jar/ container – I do this in no particular order but I do leave the raspberries until the end. I add as many as I can until the jar is full. Then with a spoon or fork mix all of the ingredients. This can be tedious as you want to get all of the ingredients blended so that the dry ingredients soften overnight. Place the jar in the fridge and ENJOY in the morning!
You can also mix your ingredients in a bowl and then scoop everything into your container!
I hope you enjoy this little taste of my morning! Please let me know how these turn out for you and let me know if you would like more flavours for your oats! You can send me your suggestions or questions using the form below! xo
