Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day. However, it is also the one people tend to skip the most. Sometimes we simply can’t set enough time aside in the morning to prepare a healthy, nutritious breakfast. In such cases, we can prepare in advance, or with short notice, so that we have something to take with us as fuel to start the day.

1.Chicken salad croissant

Chicken for some strange reason is not a popular meat for breakfast. People eat beef, ham, pork, and even steak, but chicken will rarely feature in the breakfast menu. However, several nutritionists today have been professing the inclusion of this meat in the morning meal for a better start to the day.

For a healthy and easy chicken breakfast, you can try making a chicken salad sandwich, which can also be prepared in advanced. Start by oven baking some chicken breasts and then letting it cool down. After that, combine chutney, mayonnaise, and a little curry powder, which you can add to the pre-baked chicken, as well as grapes, and almonds.

Take a croissant and line it with lettuce, then top with the chicken salad mixture. As long as your chicken is ready, you can make this quickly in the morning or the night before. The chicken will also give you tons of energy for your day. Healthy and tasty!

2.Greek yogurt + muesli

Protein like the kind found in Greek-style yogurt should be considered a priority for a healthy breakfast. It has many benefits, including the fact that it will keep you feeling fuller for longer, keep your blood sugar levels stable, and may even help you crave fewer calories later in the day.

A protein-rich breakfast can boost levels of a brain chemical that blunts cravings for sugary, high-fat foods later on. Also, kicking off your day with a whole-grain cereal like muesli can help lower your chances of getting high blood pressure.

The great thing about muesli is that it’s a no-cooking-required mixture of oats and other items like nuts. That means there is minimal time required in getting your breakfast ready. All you need to do for your healthy start in the morning is stir some Greek yogurt and muesli together with blueberries in a travel-friendly container. Done!

3.Whole-grain tortilla + hummus

Jump start your metabolism with this quick but delicious pairing of food. Put the toast aside and get your grains from whole wheat tortillas. This has the benefit of keeping your blood sugar levels in balance. However, try to find wraps with no more than 150 calories per serving.

Hummus is made from chickpeas. It has both the fibre and plant-based protein to give your portable breakfast long lasting power. A diet rich in high-fibre beans will also keep you satisfied and help you lose weight. Put 1/4 cup of hummus on a whole-grain tortilla. You can also top it up with 2 tablespoons of sunflower seeds and baby spinach for extra nutrients. Roll it up and take it with you as you head out for the day. Quick and easy!
