1) Overnight oats

If you tend to be rushing around in the mornings and don’t have much time to prepare breakfast then this is perfect for you. It can be made the night before, left in the fridge and in the morning all you have to do is add your favourite toppings. The combination of oats, banana, milk and chia seeds gives a perfect balance of carbohydrates and protein to set you up for the day. Find the full recipe here.

2) Scrambled egg wrap

This takes a little more time to prepare (not much though) but once made can be eaten on the go. All you need is a wrap, some mashed avocado, a bit of spinach and scrambled eggs. It’s a perfect post-workout meal as it contains a mix of carbohydrate needed to replace depleted muscle glycogen stores and protein for repairing and building muscle. It’s also got healthy fats from the avocado and a bit of spinach is always a plus. Find full recipe here.

3) Chia pudding

Chia seeds are another fantastic high protein, low carbohydrate energy source. They are naturally gluten-free and are a great provider of fibre, omega 3 fatty acids and calcium. When mixed with milk they absorb most of the liquid and form a jelly like texture. To make a tasty breakfast try adding in things like cacao powder, cinnamon or agave syrup and top with some berries for extra nutritional benefit. Find full recipe here.

4) Oat smoothie

Smoothies and juices are a life-saver for anyone short on time as you can quickly and easily pack in a lot of nutrients. For this reason it’s definitely worth investing in a good blender and experimenting with vegetable loaded juices, delicious berry and yoghurt smoothies or my favourite which is an oat and peanut butter smoothie. This super filling and perfect post-workout meal simply involves blending together a banana, some oats, a bit of milk and a teaspoon of peanut butter. Screw on a lid and you’ve got the perfect on the go breakfast. Find the full recipe here.
