Here is a blog written by athlete, Hannah Willmott, about healthy breakfast recipes. It is so hard to find good recipes to help you fuel best before and after exerecise so she has made a collection of ones she uses regularly. Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
Hi! I’m everactiv ambassador Hannah and I LOVE triathlon. As an athlete you want to be fueled for your training sessions or just ready for a long day at school. Therefore, I believe breakfast is the most important meal of the day. However, I’m not always great at waking up on time. I’m all for grabbing a banana or an apple on the way out of the door. But I have realised that this isn’t the healthiest way forward. Recently I have been trying to find healthier breakfasts that I can either eat on the go or make the night before. Here are a few of my favourite healthy recipes that you could try out!
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
50g porridge oats
100ml milk/plant-based milk/water
2 tbsp natural yogurt
1 kiwi/banana/handful of berries
(You can use whatever fruit you like and you can add extra seeds, nuts, nut butter or/and spices)
I like to add 1tsp of chia seeds to the oats and I like to use peanut butter on top with banana. Anything will work though! This recipe fills you up for a long time and stops any snack cravings. I love the creamy texture too!
Splash of milk/fruit juice
Handful of berries/mango
1tbsp natural yogurt
You can make this smoothie with whatever combination of fruit you like. If you want to make it more filling, I like to add 10g of oats or/and 1-2tbsp chia seeds. Nut lover? You can even add 1tbsp peanut butter! This recipe is great to make the night before and pop in the fridge. You can also drink it on your way to school if your in a rush like I normally am!
Knob of butter
2 mushrooms (You can swap this for another vegetable or for bacon/ham)
10g grated cheese
This recipe isn’t as quick to make but it really fills you up and it is lovely to have a warm breakfast before a cold day at school. You can add herbs, veg, extra cheese or meat (whatever you fancy really!)
2 heaped desert spoons of natural yogurt
1tbsp chia seeds
1tbsp pumpkin seeds
I have this a lot for breakfast. It is super simple to make and great to adapt. You can play around with tons of different combos of fruit, nuts seeds and flavors. This one is up to you!
I hope these recipes help you break the habit of having no breakfast. If you want more recipes have a look on bbcgoodfood for lots of breakfast delights. Follow me on Instagram for pictures of what I whip up!
