When You Have NO Time 'Grab and Go' Options
In this Healthy Eating Facts and Recipes Series so far we covered five important facts about breakfast, along with some humorous grumpy morning thoughts! In Part 2 we talked about four 'must-have' breakfast guidelines for 'superhuman' energy, work motivation and mental clarity. The next three Parts of this Series will provide recipes and ideas to make eating breakfast easier - especially if you have no time!
'Grab and Go' Breakfast Ideas and Options...
- Think Thin Protein Bars -
My husband is a 'grab and go' breakfast guy. He eats these in his car
on the way into the office. They work because they fit the Breakfast 'Must-Haves' Guidelines: lean protein (20 grams) & low fat, zero grams of sugar and it's packed with 18 essential vitamins and minerals. They taste pretty good too - Chunky Peanut Better is our favorite flavor. Don't be fooled
by high-sugar, low protein breakfast bars! Be sure to read the
packaging first. I can find these bars at my local Publix grocery store.
You can also order them from Amazon, here: thinkThin Chunky Peanut Butter, 2.1-Ounce Bar (Pack of 10)
- Protein Shake - Minimal Ingredients Needed: 1 Scoop of Whey Protein (pick your favorite flavor: Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Vanilla, Strawberry, etc.); 12 ounces Coconut Milk or Water; 6 Ice Cubes. Directions: Mix in a blender for 15 seconds or shake in a cup with a lid,and go! Optional Add-Ons:
Throw in a handful of raw almonds or walnuts; tablespoon of bee pollen; add fresh
or frozen fruit; add cinnamon; add a package of instant coffee - my
favorite: Starbucks Via. Yummy, quick, fulfilling and easy!
Another Smart Nutrition and Health Resource:
I listen to this Author's Podcast regularly. He explains something I've never heard before - but is based upon science - and makes SO much sense. It has to do with how to 'unclog a broken metabolic system.' I absolutely recommend this book:
KINDLE VERSION: The Smarter Science of Slim
- Hard Boiled Eggs with Grapes, Apple or Banana - Ingredients Needed: 3 Hard boiled eggs; (Suggestion:
boil a dozen eggs over the weekend, peel & have ready for a quick
grab - I've also seen bags already boiled for you at the grocery.) Grapes, a banana or an apple. (Silly Side Note: Remember when Columbo, the TV Detective would show up at the murder scene with an egg in his raincoat??) Directions: Grab and go and eat in the car!
- Apple, Part Skim String Cheese & Bacon - Ingredients Needed: 1 apple; 1 portion of part-skim string cheese; 2 slices of Bacon. Directions:
Wrap each slice of bacon separately in a paper towel, fold over
and over. Cook for 1 minute. Grab it all and go. Easy to eat in the car. SideNote: I pack these when I have early plane trips.
Sounds crazy, but is a simple, fulfilling, healthy option for my
briefcase. Better than Airport junk and snacks... really, try it!
- Try a Green Smoothie - I know, they sound terrible, right? But Green Smoothies actually taste really good, are super nutritious and are super quick to make. They are a GREAT and EASY way to get all the benefits of healthy eating into a busy morning and day. I wrote a post/article about my experience with Green Smoothies, including step-by-step directions and more. Read about all the benefits I've noticed by drinking Green Smoothies and get specifics on how to do it here.
- Weekend Breakfast Left-Overs - Protein Pancakes, Protein Waffles, etc. Make
extra when you're making your weekend breakfast - freeze it and grab
and go during the week. I do this ALL the time. Check out the weekend breakfast meals here.
