Breakfast; the most important meal of the day. The chance to refuel and break our nighttime fast – but according to statistics, 47% of UK adults say they ‘rarely get the time to eat” a proper one! With almost half of us not finding the time to pack a healthy meal in to kick-start our day, we’ve raided the shelves for our favourite three healthy breakfasts to grab and go. Easy to get hold of, easy to eat and easy to commute with!
Packed with flavour, nutrient heavy and easy transport and eat on the go, smoothies are an easy way to get your fruit fix and your AM fuel quickly. Easy to make at home (as long as you have a blender and some fruit), just blend and go. You can find tons of recipes to suit online, BBC Good Food and Pinterest are great places to start for inspiration! If you’d prefer to buy your smoothies, there are loads of options in stores too. Our favourites are the super smoothies from M&S Simply Food. Created to defend, power, protect and revitalise, the four flavours are all full of flavour and packed with fruit for all the vitamins and nutrients your body needs to kick-start the morning.
If you prefer to wake yourself up with something warm, porridge is a great place to start. Oats are healthy grains too, packed with all the vitamins, minerals, fibre and antioxidants your body will be craving after a night of rebuilding and replenishing. It’s quick and easy to make, with many microwavable options available from supermarkets across the country. For those of us who are really pushed for time though, Greggs have got us covered with made-to-order gluten-free porridge oats to take out! Creamy, classic and low calories (268kcal per portion), it’s our favourite weekday morning fuel.
Full of fibre, vitamins and potassium, there’s a reason we need 5 portions of fruit or veg a day. What a better way to make sure you’re nailing that by grabbing fruit for brekkie? Quick and easy, it’s a welcome health-kick every morning. Pair your favourite fruit with Greek yoghurt and it’ll keep you full for hours. Alternatively, pack lots of it into a juice and drink it alongside whatever your favourite breakfast go-to is. Our favourite is the freshly pressed orange juice from M&S.
