Breakfast Recipes for Women on the Go
We’re big fans of feeling good, and that starts from within by eating healthy and balanced meals at every opportunity. We love finding recipes that can keep you feeling full of energy, satisfied and ready to take on the day, such as Gluteywear’s ebook that has nutritious recipes paired with each day of the week.
Whether you’re working from home or back in the office, making time to eat a nutritious breakfast isn’t easy. We have compiled three of our favourite, and easy, breakfast recipes for women on the go.
These breakfast recipes can be as simple as you need them to be and can all be made in advance so that they won't interrupt your Miracle Morning routine!
30 Minute Recipe, Vegetarian & Gluten Free.
No, not the McDonald’s kind - these breakfast muffins are sometimes also referred to as Egg Cups, or Omelette Muffins. You can make this gluten free and vegetarian breakfast recipe with whatever ingredients you find in your fridge, but we’ve shared a simple recipe for you to follow and alter however you like depending on preference.
We like to make a tray full of these at the weekend and leave them in the fridge throughout the week to eat as a cold breakfast or snack throughout the week - they are delicious warm and fresh out of the muffin tray, or straight out the fridge 5 days later!
What You’ll Need: 1 Muffin Tray (for this recipe we use a 6-cup muffin tray, but a 12-cup muffin tray would also work for making smaller Egg Muffins); 5 eggs (provides 6 servings), spinach, tomato, onion (but almost any filling will work).
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
Step 2: In a measuring cup, beat the eggs until smooth, season with salt/pepper/herbs to taste. Set aside.
Step 3: Chop/dice/slice chosen ingredients - spinach, tomato, onion in this instance and either cook them off in a frying pan or skip ahead to Step 4 depending on taste preference.
Step 4: In a greased muffin tin, place your desired combination of fillings into each muffin cup.
Step 5: Pour the beaten eggs into each muffin cup until the liquid almost reaches the top.
Step 6: Bake for 20 minutes, until set.
Suggested Recipe Alteration: You can pretty much put ANY ingredient in these muffins, much like you can a full-sized omelette but if you want to give them that little something extra we suggest shredding some potatoes to create your own home-made hash browns to add at the base of your Muffin Cups. Cook it off in the oven before adding your Egg Muffin ingredients - home-made hash browns are gluten free and add an extra texture and extra amount of carb to keep you going throughout your busy day.
5 Minute Recipe (seriously!), Vegetarian and Gluten Free (if using GF Oats).
There’s a reason Pinterest is obsessed with Overnight Oats, they’re the pinnacle of healthy and easy to prepare breakfast recipes. Prep this meal of an evening and enjoy in the morning - you could even build your Overnight Oats in your travel mug (rather that cute mason jars like Pinterest suggests) and eat on your commute!
Again, you can pretty much add anything to your oats that you normally would, but we’ve found you a delicious cinnamon roll recipe as a base and you can alter it any which way you like once you’ve fallen in love with the convenience of having time for a filling and nutritious breakfast every day.
What You’ll Need: 1 cute jar or sensible container; ½ cup of rolled oats (use your favourite Gluten Free Rolled Oats to make this recipe GF); ½ cup skimmed milk (or soy, or almond, whatever you prefer); ¾ cup of plain or vanilla Greek yogurt; ½ tablespoon cinnamon; a pinch of salt; 2 tablespoons of light brown sugar; 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Step 1: In a jar or container, stir together the oats, milk, yogurt, cinnamon, salt, brown sugar, and the vanilla extract until well-combined.
Step 2: Cover and chill overnight.
That’s it! Uncover and enjoy chilled in the morning and repeat every evening with varying ingredients to mix up the taste.
15 Minute recipe, Vegan and Gluten Free.
Also referred to as energy bites these balls are high in fibre, protein and healthy fats and they can be frozen too so you can make them far in advance for ultimate convenience. Some protein ball recipes require a large food processor but for extra ease we’ve provided a recipe that simply requires a large mixing bowl and your own hands to create.
What You’ll Need: 1 large mixing bowl; 2 cups of rolled oats (Gluten Free substitute if needed); 1 cup natural peanut butter; ¾ cups honey; ½ cup chocolate protein powder (any flavour will work); 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder; 2 tablespoons vanilla; ⅓ cup of chocolate chips.
Step 1: As you measure out each ingredient tip it into your large mixing bowl.
Step 2: Use your hands or a big serving spoon to mix all the ingredients in together.
Step 3: One mixed thoroughly, use your hands to scoop a small amount out and shape into a ball. Place each ball onto a greaseproof-lined oven tray and pop into the fridge.
Step 4: After about 15 minutes they’ll be firm enough to snack on, and to move into a storage container to pop into your handbag in the morning or to stack on a less space consuming plate for fridge storage. As mentioned above, these can be frozen and defrosted later, and once you’ve got the hand of this recipe you can give some other ingredients a go, and even try whipping out your food processor for some variations on the protein ball recipe.
There you have it, our top-three convenient and healthy recipes for women on the go, enjoy them for breakfast or as a snack throughout the day. Once you have the hang of these staple recipes you’ll be cooking up a storm with ease, and throwing fun new ingredients into the mix to your preferred taste. Whether you’re a Miracle Morning gal, or a whizz-through-the-morning busy mum, we can almost guarantee these recipes will make you morning, and subsequently your entire day, easier to manage.
