Hi, first off I love your blog! Next, I work full time at differing hours and am having a hard time with breakfasts lately. When I work late I have no issue eating some cereal in the morning, but whenever I'm working early its pop-tarts or McDonald's. Do you have any tips for a healthier start? I love breakfast but I'm tired of these pop-tarts lol.

I can relate so much to this!

Breakfast on the Go

1. Breakfast Burritos. Cook these in bulk during your downtime and freeze them all! Defrost them and throw them in a microwave on your way out the door. BOOM.

2. Granola/Cereal Bags. One of my favorite quick breakfasts. Buy your favorite granola and/or cereal and divide it into plastic bags. Are store brands too expensive or not to your liking? Make your own granola with dried fruit, nuts, protein bites, flax seeds, etc. It’s okay to put a handful of chocolate in, just so long as you make your mix 95% healthy. My favorite brand is Bakery on Main (they’re gluten free btw).

3. Yogurt. Buy yogurt in bulk and top with your favorite granola or fresh fruit. My boyfriend loves the Siggis brand. This particular greek yogurt is packed with a ridiculous amount of protein and not overly sweet.

4. Bagels/toast. Bagels/toast literally take five minutes to prepare in the morning, and can be topped with anything from cream cheese to peanut butter. Buy bulk and freeze what you’re not eating immediately. 

5. Smoothies. Smoothies are a wonderfully healthy alternative to most of your other breakfast options! Blend your favorite fruits and veggies, most smoothies will keep for 48 hours. If you would prefer the easier route of a pre-made smoothie, I recommend Bolthouse smoothies. These will keep in your fridge for up to a week!

6. Oats. The sensation that is sweeping the nation! Click here.

7. Health Food Bars. You know the ones I’m talking about- Cliff Bars, Luna Bars, etc. While these can get pricey, they require no effort on your part and can be stored for upwards of six months. 

8. Fruit. There is nothing that I love more than a cut up apple and a spoon full of chunky peanut butter. Keep your fridge stocked with all your favorite fruits. Apples and bananas are delicious all year long and easy to eat on the go, because they require zero preparation. Add peanut butter to give yourself an added dose of protein.

9. Hardboiled Eggs. I would recommend preparing these in bulk when you have time. Hardboiled eggs will last in your fridge for up to a week! Buy yourself a handy dandy egg slicer and sprinkle with your favorite seasonings. 

10. Leftovers. I love eating leftovers for breakfast- just throw them in your microwave or oven and they’re ready to go in no time. I particularly love eating leftover pizza, salad, and sandwiches for breakfast. 

Also please check out my favorite food-related infographic! Excellent suggestions for meals/snacks on the go.

Hope this helps!

Apple Pancake Recipe!

Hello all!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe but I’ve got a super delicious and fun one for y’all today. It only takes a few ingredients which you probably have at home and it’s a 100% whole, plant-based meal that was easily made zero waste. Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients (serves 2)
1.5 cups rolled oats
1 ripe banana
1 cup of water or non-dairy milk (I used homemade sunflower seed milk!)
1 apple
Optional: cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and any other toppings

Method
Start by adding the oats, banana and liquid to a blender (as well as any spices or vanilla) and blend until smooth. Once that’s done, heat up a pan to about medium heat.
While waiting for that, slice your apple horizontally into fairly thin slices - you’ll want at least 6 good ones. 
Next, add some coconut oil to the pan, a few apple slices, and pour the pancake batter over the apple rings so they’re fully covered. Cook for around 5 minutes, or until the edges are fully cooked, and flip. Cook for 2-3 more minutes or until set. Continue until you’ve used up all the batter.
Now serve it up! Top it with homemade jam, nut butter, sweetener, fruit or anything else that you like! I topped mine with some homemade granola and fresh ground peanut butter.

This is a really fun breakfast that’s perfect for the weekend. All the ingredients I used were found in bulk so it was totally waste free - enjoy!

Xoxo,
Sabs
