Three Easy Breakfast

Hi guys

Here are three of my favorite breakfasts that you can prepare in few minutes and are good for busy days.

1- The first one is the easiest one, all you need is:

-one tbs maple syrup

-hand full of blueberries

-one cup of roasted spelt

Just mix everything and you’re good to go. It’s delicious, crunchy and contains high amounts of protein and fiber. Caution: spelt is not a gluten-free grain, actually it’s high in gluten.

2-The second one is my favorite; avocado toast

– three pieces of toast (I prefer whole grain)

-one avocado

-salt & pepper

-olive oil (a few drops)

-two small tomatoes

Smash the avocado in a small bowl using a fork. Mix in pepper, salt and olive oil. Spread it in on the breads. Slice tomatoes in small pieces and put it on the top. Enjoy.

3- The last one is for coffee lovers:

-one cup of coffee

-two ripe bananas

-handful of Chia seed

-handful of flaxseed

-few ice cubes

Threw everything in a mixture and mix. What I like about this one is that you can put it a mason jar, put the lead on and eat your breakfast on the way to work or school.

What is your “breakfast on the run”? Please share them in the comments.
