I absolutely love breakfast and will barely ever leave my house without haven eaten something. There is even a big chance I will eat something before I have a breakfast or brunch date! Because, what if the food is not nice? What if there is not enough food? I need my breakfast guys! Better leave fully prepared, you know.
This also means that most of the week, breakfast is a race against the clock. I always want to make something tasty and something that fills me up, so most mornings I will spend some time preparing my food. Basically, this means that I always end up getting late for where ever I am going that day (my friends will agree with this), arriving like a total mess because I had to run out of the door and my breakfast did not leave a lot of time to do all other morning things a normal human normally does.
You are probably thinking: why don’t you get up earlier so you have more time? Sleep, you guys, sleep. Nobody messes with my beauty sleep, not even breakfast.
Through the years I have been able to find a few breakfast staples that are simple to make so I still have some time to get ready. Heaven! And because I know I am not the only one having trouble with eating a nourished breakfast every morning in limited time, I am gonna share them with you.
Today I will share the first 2 with you. These are my to go meals when I did not prepare anything the night before (most days really) but still want to eat something tasty and nourishing. The first one is super simple, but I am still gonna write it down because the combination of ingredients is just good and it takes only a few minutes before you sit down to eat. Basically what I do is scramble a few eggs, top them with salt, pepper and sumac, add one sliced avocado and a piece of fruit. Tadaa. It is kind of embarrisingly simple, but really good.
The other breakfast, a smoothie bowl, needs a few more steps but do not let that scare you away. It is still done in a few minutes because you throw everything in the blender and you are done! Because of the oats and yoghurt, the smoothie gets a nice and thick consistence so you can pour it into a bowl and eat it with a spoon. This also means: endless toppings to choose from! This is not necessary! But it is nice :)
If you are thinking “this is still way too much work for me in the morning” I suggest you try it out. If it does not work for you: stay tuned! We are sharing two more breakfast recipes with you next week that only involve taking your breakfast out of the fridge and eat it! But for now, let’s give these two a chance.
Orange smoothie bowl with oats
2 tbps oats
1 tsp honey
5 tbsp coconut milk
3 tbsp yoghurt
optional: toppings (granola, grated coconut, fresh orange)
Put all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth. Pour in a bowl and top with toppings. Eat with a spoon!
Scrambled eggs with avocado and citrus
3 eggs, mixed
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 orange/blood orange/grapefruit
Heat 1 tbs of coconut oil in a pan on low heat and add your eggs. Scramble your eggs to your liking (I like them soft and fluffly), mix in salt and pepper and place on a plate. Cut your avocado in slices, as well as your citrus fruit and add to the plate. Sprinkle sumac over your eggs and avocado and voila!
