Healthy Breakfast Recipes

Mornings can be hectic and we don't always have time to make ourselves a proper breakfast. Here are a couple of our favourite, nutrient dense breakfast recipes that you can either make the night before, or will literally take you five minutes in the morning.

If you're on GP4:3 or incorporating intermittent fasting/ timed eating into your lifestyle these recipes make great low-cal nutritious snacks or fast day meals.

Choc Protein Chia Pudding
Make this the night before so you can grab & go in the morning:

2 heaped tbsp chia seeds (approx. 70g)
35g Chocolate protein powder of your choice – we love using our Protein Me as it’s made with raw cacao so it’s really chocolatey and means you don’t need to add extra cocoa powder (made for us by our friends at That Protein)  
1 pinch of Himalayan pink salt
150ml milk of your choice – we like almond or coconut with this recipes
½ tsp vanilla extract – go for a high quality extract
Dash of agave or maple syrup to sweeten – if needed

1.Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl until blended fully
2.Decant into smaller serving sized bowls – ramekins are the perfect size (this recipe makes around 4 servings, and will keep for around 4 days)
3.Pop in the fridge to set – we like to leave it overnight but 4-5 hours should be enough
4.Add toppings if you’re feeling fancy! Sliced banana, goji berries, coconut flakes whatever you like.


Veggie Breakfast Burrito

This may sound like it could be on a fast-food menu, but this quick brekkie packs a nutritional punch:

½ avocado – sliced or mashed whichever you prefer
1-2 boiled egg – sliced or chopped, use 2 if you’re feeling hungry
½ pepper – sliced, we love red peppers but yellow works just as well
2 tbsp salsa – you can make your own by whizzing tomatoes, garlic, lime, onion and a little white wine vinegar in your blender or buy a high-quality sugar free version to save time
1 large green leaf – use a large romaine lettuce leaf, green cabbage or iceberg

1.Lay the leaf on your plate
2.Add avocado then other fillings
3.Wrap and enjoy!


Avo-Berry Bowl
This is another recipe you can make the components the night before and enjoy in the morning with less mess:
2 tbsp natural yogurt – can use a dairy free/vegan alternative
2 handfuls of frozen berries
1 chopped banana – we like to chop and freeze a couple of bananas so we have them handy for smoothies etc
½ avocado
½ tbsp rolled oats – can use GF if needed
1 tbsp almond butter – if almond butter isn’t your thing a high-quality peanut butter or other nut butter will work just as well
Dash of agave or maple syrup to sweeten – if needed

1.Pop the berries, avocado flesh and yogurt into a blender and whizz until smooth. Add a drop of water to help if needed.
2.Either in a pan or your oven, toast your oats until they’re a lovely golden colour.
3.Pour the blended mix into a bowl, add a dollop of nut butter and sprinkle over the oats and agave/maple syrup.
