They used to say that breakfast was the most important meal of the day but now it's intermittent fasting until 11:00 am. If you are not fasting and always running out the door half asleep, then this post is for you.
You have three needs with a rat race lifestyle:
Here are three yummy favorites of mine.
The Stir n' Go
Great for when you are really in a rush but want to get your protein in. I personally like Orgain Protein Powder.
1 scoop Orgain Protein Powder (Chocolate, Vanilla, or Plain)
Fill glass or container with water
Optional: I add a liver support powder with collagen in mine.
Optional: You can add a greens powder or nut milk to add extra calories.
The Eastern European in a Mason Jar
European cultures will often have fish for breakfast, salmon being a common choice. It's rich in healthy omega fatty acids, antioxidants like astaxanthin, and is the perfect protein. Pair it with dill, lemon, and a little olive oil.
2 tbsp olive oil
Place ingredients in a Mason Jar in the order as listed above. Close it and go. Don't forget the fork! Store in the fridge until you can have a little mini break at work for a brunch o the go.
Grab n' Go:
Cook in bulk Sunday ideas
Many people may think that cooking in bulk means cooking lunch or dinner. Have you considered cooking breakfast muffins, making protein balls, or baking a quiche that you can easily heat up and enjoy on the go? Below is one of my personal favorites:
Asparagus and Spinach Quiche
1 Almond Pie Crust
4-5 Eggs whipped
Salt and Pepper 2 tbsp Parsley
8 Asparagus stalks, sliced in halves
4 cups of baby spinach
2-3 Garlic Cloves
2 tbsp avocado oil
Preheat the oven to 375F. Take out pie crust and let it thaw a little. Place the eggs in a bowl and whip as if you were to scramble them. Add in Parsley. Remove the tops of the asparagus, setting them aside. Saute' the stalks until bright green. Add the baby spinach and saute' until they wilt. Add the Garlic Cloves, 1 tbsp of parsley, salt, and pepper and cook for about 3 minutes. Pour the Asparagus and Spinach into the eggs. Then pour the mixture into the almond pie crust. Bake for 45 minutes.
You can easily grab a piece, heat it up, and eat on your way out or take with you to work.
