Stuck for healthy breakfast ideas when you are charging around getting everybody ready? I have just the thing for you
Breakfast is too often forgotten in the frenzy of the morning rush around.
You’re trying to get out of bed (that can be difficult especially if you’ve had a broken night), decide what to wear, get the kids out of bed (even more difficult), make sure they have all their kit, give them breakfast (hopefully), and then get everyone out of the house at the right time to the right place with all the right kit.
That’s before you start your own day – and so the list continues…
What about your own breakfast?
What you eat first thing in the morning sets the pace to your day. Many people make the mistake of skipping breakfast or simply having a cup of coffee, or even worse, coffee and a pastry.
If this is you, STOP IT!
The very best thing you can do for your body when you wake up in the morning is to drink/chug back a big glass of water. Want to make it taste good? Add a squirt of lemon juice.
No Time for a Healthy Breakfast? NONSENSE!
