Mia Comes Back With 2 Of Her Killer (Healthy) Breakfasts.
(Mia has already graced us with 3 top healthy recipes check them out!)
Oh hello there, Chef Mia is back aha! It's October already, huh?! Just two minutes ago it was mid-July, I don't understand how did this happen...
But since it is what it is, and since October means most of us (if not all of us) are back to school, Chef Mia is here to rescue you with 2 healthy and easy breakfast ideas to fuel your brain and body, and keep you full until lunchtime!
1. Eggs × Avocado on toast.
Eggs are my favourite food so this is one of my all time favourites and I really regret not knowing about it until a couple months ago.
It literally keeps me full for around 3 hours!
-2 slices whole grain bread.
-1/2 an avocado.
-Salt, Pepper and Olive oil to your taste.
-Fresh herbs (parsley, thyme, or basil).
-You can chose in fact whether to scramble or hard/soft boil your eggs, but I personally scramble them using olive oil.
If you chose to hard boil them, just remember it only takes about 3mins after the water starts boiling, don't leave the eggs forever boiling haha it's just pointless!
And in case you're more into soft boiled eggs, I'd say it takes around 2mins after the water starts boiling.
-While the eggs are cooking, toast the bread (optionnal) and smash the avocado on each piece of toast. When the eggs are done, place them on top of the toast according to the way you've cooked them.
Sprinkle with olive oil, salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. You can get creative with the seasonning if you feel like this is too mainstream.
I personally also sprinkle them with ginger and sesame seeds.
And there my friends, you have just enough protein, healthy fat, and carbs for the morning!
2. Overnight Oats × Fruit bowl.
One great way to make sure you catch a little extra sleep in the morning is to make your breakfast the night before. Overnight oats are in this case your new close friend!
-1/2 a cup of rolled oats.
-Luke warm water OR 1cup of greek yogurt.
-Ginger, cinnamon to your taste.
-1tbsp of honey.
-3 variations of fruits.
-Place the oats in a the bowl you'll eat them from and add in the greek yogurt.
If you're making them with water instead like I usually do, then just pour it in small amounts, mix it in and give the oats a few seconds after each pour to absorb the water until you reach a level of thickness that suits your tastes.
-Mix in ginger and cinnamon.
Once again, you can get creative with the seasonning.
I personally also add in sesame seeds (again lol) and flax seeds, on rare occasions I even add in a tbsp of coffee flavoured protein powder.
-Cut/dice the fruits you have in hand and top the oat porridge with them. Now speaking of fruits, I ususally go crazy with them when I'm having them for breakfast because I know I'm not eating any more of them for the rest of the day.
For example I'd use 3 dates, 1 banana, 1 dried fig, raisins/ 1 peach.
A girl's gotta eat what! Also a girl needs her energy first thing in the morning!
-After you've topped the oats with fruits, sprinkle it all with honey.
If you're a dark chocolate kinda person cut some in small pieces and sprinkle with it too, it'll taste amazing!
-Cover your bowl and leave it in the fridge overnight. It'll feel like a gift the next morning!
Tadaa, again just enough carbs, fiber and vitamins for your morning! I hope that was helpful.
Let me know if you've made any of these, I love seeing people try out my (not so original though haha) ideas!
