Breakfast is always a difficult meal and one I have struggled with for ages. There have been so many variations over the last few years and nothing has stuck. Its difficult to find something that is healthy, convenient, easy for work, cheap and fits in with my training schedule which at times can be quite tough.
Over the last few months I have tried:
toast – but that lead to lots of Nutella
- poached eggs – while delicious meant a lot of organising and making sure I had all the right ingredients at work
- traditional cereal – however that was just expensive as one box would last less than a week and each day I would end up having second helpings. The diary element also doesn’t agree with me.
Going forward I need a breakfast that is easy to make, doesn’t need refrigeration, is convenient and will give me the fuel I need to get me through the KM. For this I have had to eat humble pie and resort to a friend’s recipe. But I don’t mind that because it is ingenious!
There is no name for this but as you can see from above it is compact and therefore convenient. The ingredients I use are below. I normally add a little cinnamon to give even more taste. The best thing about this breakfast is that you can change it each day but adding different dried fruit or using different flavours of juice.
How to make:
- Prepare the night before
Get a secure vessel – I use an old soup container with a click lid
- Add as much muesli as you need
- Top with dried fruit
- Fill to about 1cm above the muesli with your juice of choice
- Click lid on and put in the refrigerator
- Most importantly – Don’t forget to take to work the next morning….
