Breakfast Ideas For When You’re In A Hurry!

We live in a fast-paced lifestyle where we are always worrying about what we have to do next. However, it’s most important that we look after our health. If you are in a hurry in the morning, try to organize your life better so that you have time for breakfast. As it says here, people who don’t have breakfast miss vital nutrients and minerals their body actually needs. Not only does breakfast mean you will snack less during the day, but it also helps you to feel more ready for the day ahead. Once you have fueled your body, you will feel better getting on with any tasks or issues that arise. If you can only just fit it in, here are some quick breakfast ideas for when you are in a hurry.

Fruit

A piece of fruit is great to eat in the morning as it doesn’t take any time to prepare. In fact, you could eat it on the go. It’s important to try to have at least five pieces of fruit and vegetables a day so the morning is a good start. If you want to make it more interesting, you could add some yoghurt to your fruit if you have time to sit down and eat it.

Porridge

For something really delicious, you should try cooking some porridge for breakfast in the morning. It’s particularly useful if the weather is terrible, as it will warm you up before heading to work. It’s also really healthy and filling, so that you won’t snack at work. If you don’t have time to make it from scratch, some companies sell instant porridge packs available online. These can be filled with hot water, and you could even enjoy them when you first get to work.

Cereal

For a tasty breakfast, you should have a pot of cereal. It’s one of the easiest meals to make, and most cereals are packed with vital nutrients to keep your energy up during the day. As explained in this feature, you should try and choose cereal which is high in fiber. To make it more interesting, you could add some flavored milk or some fruit. It’s always good to keep you full for hours on end.

Muffins

If you need to grab something in a hurry, a cookie or muffin is a fabulous idea that will be incredibly delicious. They have a good amount of carbs, protein and fat to keep you feeling full during the morning’s events. If you are going to make your own, try to make healthy options. Try and swap chocolate out for nuts, as these will cut down the calories.

Smoothie

A smoothie is a very popular option for breakfast. It’s a great way to have a lot of fruit and veg in one go. Use greek yoghurt or milk to make it all mix nicely. It’s easy to take to work and enjoy there, and you will be surprised how full you will feel after!

Make sure you leave enough time in the morning so you don’t rush your breakfast down. You should try to eat something, as it’s the most important meal of the day!

Great Gifts For The “Foodie” In Your Life

Most of us are starting to make healthier choices in our lives. Even if we haven’t quite got around to the overhaul, we’re more aware of what’s healthy and what’s not. We might be trying to exercise, stress less, and get a better night’s sleep, for example. But for most of us, the area that needs attention is our diet. There’s a good chance that we have a “foodie” in our lives. They love to talk about food, think about food, read about food, and eat it of course! They are usually the first in our group of friends to want to try a new street food stand or hit the opening of a restaurant. Food is one of the great pleasures in life so it’s great to enjoy it. We can always do so in moderation. The advantage of having a foodie for a friend is that they’re easy to shop for. We always know what is likely to get their attention and can buy accordingly. If you’re shopping for a foodie, look no further than the suggestions below!

Unusual Cookbooks

There’s a good chance that the foodie in our life has a pretty good selection of cookbooks. If they’re just starting out, then simple cookbooks with sound nutritional advice can be a good choice. But if they already have a little experience, then why not try something different? Cookbooks that cater for a specific diet or lifestyle can be fascinating. Not only do they broaden your range or skills and enable you to try dishes you might not otherwise. But they are also perfect for if you find yourself hosting or catering for someone with a different dietary needs. Vegetarian and vegan lifestyles are becoming more common. But fortunately we have access to books with some of the tastiest, veggie-approved plates around! Many restaurants also release cookbooks with their history and signature dishes. If your friend has a favorite bar or eatery they like to visit, check whether they have their own cookbook!

Water Bottles And Lunch Boxes

It may sound at first like a strange idea for a gift. But foodies are often snacking and can struggle to know where to put all their treats! A cute lunchbox, water bottle, or portable coffee cup can be a great gift. They’re convenient enough to take to the work or the gym. They also come in a range of colors and designs so you can find one that suits any taste or gender. Why not fill it with snacks or treats as part of the gift too? It can be a real surprise to receive a container as a gift and then realize that the container has more gifts inside!

Gadgets

Learning to cook is a great skill but it’s also a lot of fun. The food industry is full of technology and innovation too, so gadgets can make great gifts. A stone grill or punch bowl can be perfect gifts for friends who like to entertain outdoors or at barbecues. Churro and waffle makers or coffee machines are great for breakfast and brunch fiends. Think about your friend’s favorite meal and specific interests, then tailor the gadget to that.
