Easy Breakfasts For A Boss Bitch’s Busy Week
Greetings from my refrigerator! Spring break is over, and I’m really sad, but that’s not the focus of this post. Let’s talk about sleep.
Sleep is important. If we get a sufficient amount per night, we look and feel healthy. Conversely, if we’re sleep deprived, well…that’s an entirely different story. I don’t know about you guys, but I turn into a monster and am one of the worst people to deal with.
So, in order to make our lives just that much easier in the morning, I’ve compiled a list of five easy-to-prepare breakfasts: one for each day of the work/school week. Not only are they all delicious, they’re also #foodporn and are guaranteed to get 100+ likes on the ‘gram.
1 ripe avocado
Bread (my personal fav is cranberry-walnut)
Cut an avocado in half and scoop out the meat. Once in a bowl, add a little olive oil and a pinch of salt. Next, slice a lemon and squeeze the juice onto the avocado. Mash all of the ingredients together. Once that’s done and your toast is already toasted, spread the avocado atop and enjoy!
1/2 cup steel cut or rolled oats
1/2 cup milk (any kind)
A small mason jar
Mix the oats and milk in a small mason jar. Next, add a cup—or as much as you like—of chopped fruit; strawberries, raspberries, bananas all go well. I also like to add sliced, raw almonds and cinnamon to the mix. Before heading to bed, pop it in the fridge. When you wake up, grab a spoon and a napkin and you’re good to go.
2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons honey or agave
Fruits or nuts
In a mason jar, combine of milk, chia seeds, and vanilla extract. Next, add your choice of honey or agave. Stir until the pudding thickens. Once done, store in the fridge and in the morning, add some fruit. This can be stored for up to 5 days, so it’s convenient.
1/4 cup coconut milk
3/4 cup kale
1/2 cup mango
1/2 cup pineapple
1 acai packet
1 teaspoon maca powder
3/4 cup granola
2 teaspoons cacao nibs
1 teaspoon hemp hearts
1 tablespoon goji berries
Pick a bowl and put it in the freezer. Pick your toppings (strawberries, banana, whatever fruit you want) and set it aside. Blend the first seven ingredients until it’s smooth. Then, remove the bowl from the freezer and place granola at the bottom before pouring the smoothie over it. Top your creation with more granola (nom nom nom, granola). Sprinkle the cacao nibs, hemp seeds, and fruit on top and eat right away.
1 1/2 cup of plain yogurt
3 cups of chopped strawberries
1/4 cup of milk
Throw it all in a blender, puree until it’s at your preferred consistency, and take it to the head.
