“I don’t have time in the morning to make breakfast.” I hear this 75% of the time I do consults or athlete check ins with our members. I challenge this every single time. When we say we don’t have time, what we really mean is that it isn’t important to us, so we don’t make time for it.
Waking up 15 minutes earlier to make a healthy breakfast requires very little effort from you. If 15 minutes of sleep is that much more important to you, maybe you need to go to bed 15 minutes earlier and toughen up when the alarm goes off.
Harsh? Maybe, but I’ve gotten to the point where the truth is more important to me that offending people. Excuses need to be confronted if you are going to get results. If you don’t want to make progress and you know better, keep doing what you are doing and stay the same.
Now that we got that out of the way and you’ve decided to take my advice, here are 3 quick breakfast ideas that take 10 minutes or less.
First things first, you must pre set the coffee pot for 10-15 minutes before you wake up. You have to have that morning joe ready.
1: Grab your coffee and turn the stove on, put a frying pan on the stove and enjoy some coffee as the pan heats up. Break out some eggs, an avocado, and a tomato. Put grassfed butter in the frying pan and fry 2-3 eggs over easy, lightly salting them. Slice half an avocado and a half a tomato and enjoy.
2: 1/3 cup oatmeal, 1 scoop protein powder, 1/3 cup nuts, and a few tablespoons or almond milk. I do this in the microwave instead of the stove.
3: Smoke salmon sandwich. I toast a piece of Ezekiel bread, fry 1 egg, smash 1/2 of an avocado on the toast, and put the salmon and egg on top. Season with everything seasoning.
Breakfast doesn’t take that long to cook. 10 minute max. You have 10 minutes, if it’s important to you.
