4 Healthy Breakfast Recipes for Work

Sometimes staying on track with our fitness is hard, and we get it! Not everybody has time to sit down and eat breakfast in the morning. Let’s face it, we all love a good sleep in and some of us don’t really enjoy eating the second we wake up. So whether you’re always skipping breakfast, can’t stomach an early meal or just simply didn’t have any time this morning thanks to that damn shirt that you told yourself you would iron last night but then decided you would wake up earlier tomorrow! – Always a bad idea.

For those of us with busy jobs, eating breakfast at work is sometimes the best option as it allows us to take time while eating rather than shovelling it down before rushing to work. If you love meal prep, and having breakfast on the go, then you’ll love these 4 healthy breakfast recipes and will probably adopt them as a staple in your current diet routine. Even if you just keep a few of these in the fridge for those busy days, you’ll be set for work and will avoid those pre-lunch hunger pains.

All of the following meals – except the bagel of course – can be prepared the night before then stored in the fridge for a number of days before eating.

1. Chia Pudding

Chia pudding has infested the feeds of many of our social media accounts with stunning photos especially on Instagram. Crystal clear images of these enchanting white, speckled glasses detailed with berries, coconut flakes and nuts pop up every now and then (making us all feel inadequate because ours never looks quite that good in photos – or is that just me?). Never the less these tasty breakfast/snack/dessert puddings are a perfect addition to your morning routine.

Here’s a great recipe for simple overnight chia pudding-

  • 1/3 cup of Chia seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk, almond milk OR coconut milk
  • ¼ cups of cacao powder
  • 2-3 tbsp of maple syrup (can be changed due to desired sweetness)
  • ½ tsp of vanilla extract

Mix together in a cup, glass, bowl or jar then leave overnight. Serve the next morning with your favourite mixed berries or fruit.

2. Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are very similar to Chia pudding and are great for a stable and healthy diet.

  • ½ cup of oats
  • 1 cup of milk/coconut milk OR almond milk (you can also use water)
  • 1-2 tbsp of honey (adjust to your sweetness)
  • Sprinkle of Sunflower seeds or other nuts of choice
  • Sprinkle of Coconut flakes
  • ½ scoop of protein powder (optional)

Combine ingredients in a bowl then let sit overnight. In the morning add your sprinkle of chosen seeds, nuts and fruit and serve hot or cold.

3. Toasted Bagel with Avocado

Woolies recently started selling bagels from Abe’s Bagels and I have not been able to get enough! (this post is not sponsored!) So I figured I would share my staple Bagel breakfast with you all. This one is easily prepared the night before then brought to work in a container or bag. Simply whip it up in the kitchen and your co-workers will think you’ve just gone out and bought a fresh breakfast.

  • 1 wholemeal bagel
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 spreads of cream cheese (or sour cream)
  • 2 spreads of light butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Half a tomato (optional)

Sour cream?! One morning we ran out of cream cheese so I opted for sour cream instead, use this with a light hand (and preferably a low fat option) and it forms the perfect base to your bagel. Apply your butter as usual to your toasted bagel, then sour cream followed by the avocado (be generous!) and tomato if you’re feeling fancy. Serve with salt and pepper and your taste buds won’t know what hit them!

4. Acai Bowl

Take this from a seasoned acai bowl maker, it’s not as hard as it looks. Here’s my favourite recipe for the perfect acai bowl…

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 4 table spoons of acai powder
  • 2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup of milk/coconut milk OR almond milk
  • 2 dates (optional for extra sweetness)
  • 1-2 tbsp of honey or maple syrup

Blend ingredients together and top with your favourite fresh fruits, nuts or grains. Note: you can also add a sprinkle of Chia seeds for some extra protein!
