Staying slim and fit for 2015 is not difficult when you follow these simple tips for how to cook a healthy breakfast in 15 minutes!
Ideally, a healthy breakfast should give you plenty of vitamins and minerals, and should provide you with lots of slow release energy so that you are not tempted to snack on crisps and other unhealthy foods before lunch.
Try porridge, omega nuts and seeds, and blueberries for an energy boost
Porridge oats are great sources of slow burn energy. Calcium-rich kale and vitamin C filled blueberries are great superfoods in smoothies or on their own. So why not try stirring blueberries into some porridge and washing it down with a clean kale smoothie?
Adding a sprinkling of chopped, toasted nuts and seeds to your toast or porridge is a great way to get beautiful skin and give yourself a mineral boost. Nuts and seeds are a brilliant source of all kinds of essential minerals, from vitamin E, which is essential for radiant skin, to zinc, which is important for nerve and brain function. You can toast up a whole batch of nuts and seeds in advance: just mix together all the chopped nuts and seeds you want, brown them on a baking tray for around 10 minutes in the oven, and store them in an airtight container for the fortnight ahead.
Nowadays, you can also opt for fortified cereals, which give you a boost of calcium and vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is an essential substance for your body and helps to increase your alertness as it is vital for improving brain and nerve health – just the thing to kick-start your day.
Do you have a few minutes in the evening? Try chia pudding
Chia pudding is a well known breakfast food among vegans, as it is a brilliant source of protein, calcium, vitamin A, and iron. This superfood is also very easy to turn into a yummy breakfast. Just take a handful of chia seeds in the evening, mix them with cinnamon and vanilla extract, and soak them overnight in a cup of water. In the morning, the mixture will have turned into a delicious food with the consistency of tapioca – ideal for having with a sprinkle of raisins for breakfast.
