    5 HEALTHY BREAKFASTS TO SET YOU UP FOR THE DAY AHEAD

    I used to be one of those people that HATED breakfast

    Honestly the thought of eating something in the morning just made me feel a bit sick and nauseous and for someone that LOVES food that probably sounds a bit strange.

    I don't know what it is - I just can't quite get my head around eating something just after I wake up.

    I do LOVE breakfast food though - I just need to be awake for a good two hours before I even think about reaching for food (hello brunch) so I've come up with my go-to breakfast ideas which are super easy to make - plus they're healthy and tasty - and the ideal way to set you up for the day ahead!

    1. SMOOTHIES
    This has to be the easiest way to pack a load of nutrients into your day. Just grab all your favourite fruits (and veggies!), bung them in the blender, whizz them up and you're on your way.

    They're fab for easing yourself into a healthy eating routine and they're even better for people who aren't really that keen on sitting down to a meal in the mornings.

    Did you catch my favourite smoothie recipe the other day? Let me know if you give it a go!


    2. EGGS & SMOKED SALMON ON TOAST
    This is the one for when you have a little extra time - hello weekend breakfasts

    It's super good for you too. Eggs are a nutritional power-house packed with protein, vitamins A, D and B *swoon* Add in your heart-healthy fats and Omega-3 from the smoked salmon plus the toast for some energy and you've got yourself a macro-nutrient dream.

    Remember carbs are not the devil people.

    3. DECONSTRUCTED SMOOTHIES
    Also known as yoghurt with fruit.

    I basically discovered this by accident because the NutriBullet wasn't working one day and I was forced to eat my smoothie mix unblended and now I actually prefer it!

    I make mine with Total yoghurt and frozen berries but these flavour drops from MyProtein are an absolute game-changer. They're calorie free and help to take the sharp edge off the natural yoghurt without the need to reach for honey or syrups!

    Toffee is the one you want but I'm also a BIG fan of the banana!

    4. OVERNIGHT OATS
    You have to be a little more organised for this one but it means you get more time in bed by making it in the night before!

    I mix 50g grams of rolled oats with 45g total yoghurt, a scoop of whey protein and 250ml almond milk and leave it to soak in the fridge overnight.

    Just add some frozen raspberries, nuts and seeds in the morning and you're done. Perfect fuel after the gym in the mornings and it can be eaten hot or cold.

    5. AVO ON TOAST
    Because what kind of basic bitch list would this be without avocado on toast - hey?

    Super simple, packed with good fats and guaranteed to get you a shed-load of likes on Instagram!
    So there you go - a little breakfast time inspiration. 
    What are your go-to breakfast dishes?

    2. I love avo on toast! And overnight pro-oats too. I used to be a breakfast hater too - now I get really mean if I've not eaten in the morning. :)
