Many people find it hard to get their nutrition on the same level as their workouts. For those of you with an early start or a small gap between an early gym session and work commitments here are 4 very simple breakfast recipes to give you adequate protein, carbs and fats to recover, gain muscle and fuel you until lunch. I think a lot of the recipes out there like protein pancakes are great but I find myself messing them up or burning them or sticking them to the pans, these recipes are so simple that within 10 minutes you can be half way through eating it.
White Chocolate Strawberry Oats
✔ 1 scoop Impact Whey White Chocolate Protein
✔ 75g Oats (Mix together and add boiling water then mix again)
✔ Chop 150g of strawberries over the top
If you want to increase the calories of this you can manipulate the ingredients by adding another scoop of protein, more oats or substituting the strawberries for banana mixing in some peanut butter.
Sweet Chilli Cheese Eggs
✔ 4 Eggs
✔ 50g Grated Cheddar Cheese
✔ 2 Slices Ezekiel Bread
✔ Sweet Chilli Sauce
Crack the eggs into a heated pan with some oil (coconut oil works well), scramble eggs and add half the cheese as they cook and mix. Once cooked, place on top of the bread and add the rest of the cheese then top with sweet chilli sauce.
Goats Cheese Spinach Egg Wrap
✔ Goats Cheese
✔ Fresh Spinach
✔ 4 Eggs
✔ Tortilla Wrap
Straight forward, scramble the eggs crumble goats cheese over them add some spinach leaves and wrap it up. Tastes fantastic and can be eaten on the go.
Cinnamon Apple Mess
✔ 4 Eggs
✔ 1 Scoop Impact Whey Protein
✔ 25g Oats
✔ 1 Large Apple
Whisk the eggs in a bowl, mix in the protein and the oats then throw in a medium heat pan with some oil. Cook like scrambled eggs. Add the cooked mix to a bowl and add chopped apple on top then sprinkle with cinnamon. It comes out like a failed protein pancake but cooked lightly it comes out like a cake and takes a lot less effort.
The key to anything lies in your daily routine, so do yourself a favor and get into a habit of fueling your muscles. Being short on time should not be an excuse when there are simple recipes like these that can be made so quickly and taste so good.
