6 Breakfast Making Tips That’ll Help You Ace Your Morning
By Gina Beretta
Hack your way to a power breakfast everyday!
Look, we all know that breakfast is *supposed* to be the most important meal of the day yet we often end up skipping it… because snoozing seems like a much better option than slaving over your stove first thing in the morning, right?
If anything, we grab a takeaway coffee on the way to work and that’s it. Umm, news flash… caffeine is not a food group! You need a well-balanced meal to help you tackle the day ahead.
So in an effort to help you get a good brekkie in, and not spend your entire salary on double almond milk cappuccinos at the coffee bar on the corner, we’ve rounded up some helpful tips to keep you on track.
Use your baking moulds
Yes, your cupcake, muffin and donut pans can be used for more than just sugary delights. For some serious protein power, whip up a quick batch of egg cups, or mini frittatas. You’ll literally be able to grab-n-go! PS: You can even use your baking pans to freeze smoothie ingredients if you’re out of Ziploc bags.
Make your freezer your new breakfast BFF! Besides prepping meals ahead of time and freezing them you can make smoothie lollies (a great idea for the upcoming summer season). Just make a large batch of your fave smoothie and freeze it in lolly pop moulds. Like, who said you couldn’t have ‘ice cream’ for breakfast?!
Get techy with it
If you’re one of those people who can totally relate to that Instagram quote “But first… coffee”, then this little hack will change your life! Invest in a self-timing coffee machine (they’re not as pricey as you think) and automate your caffeine intake. Simple set the timer the night before and you’ll wake up to the smell of roasted coffee beans.
Prep like a pro
You know that saying “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail”? It’s so true. If you always find yourself rushing out the door in the morning then simply set aside an hour on Sunday night and get your trusty Tuppawear out. You can make overnight oats, a huge batch of granola, breakfast bars, prep smoothies and store your hard boiled eggs (you could even toss those into your office lunch).
Use your microwave
If you’re really in a time crunch and could get breakfast at home or on the way to work, you can use the office microwave. You can literally make anything in the microwave. Think creamy oats in 30 seconds, and yes, even scrambled eggs!
