So with that in mind.....
I HAVE NO TIME!
I feel like it is a very typical teenager complaint (and probably an adult one too... I'm not sure, I'll have to wait until I become an adult ;) but trying to squish in school, homework, extracurricular school activities, flute lessons, acrobatics, a job, a blog and a social life (remind me again what that is?) leaves very little hours in the day. Unless I give up sleeping. Hmmm...
Any who, where does a girl-full-of-beans who
Why she wakes up before the sun has even considered stirring, laces up her running shoes and pounds that pavement! (It sounds so much cooler put like that!)
Even then- that early in the morning- leaves roughly 30 seconds to prepare breakfast. Enter pre-prepared deliciousness:
They are so good for quick throw-in-your-gob brekky, made the night before and simply left out for around 15-20 mins to soften= perfect!
Heat a heaped tablespoon of peanut butter in a small container with 2 tablespoons of milk of choice (I used macadamia milk) in the microwave for 20 seconds and stir into dry mix. Add more milk if necessary and form into balls. Place on a plate lined with baking paper and pop in the freezer until required.
So simple- which is why I didn't bother creating a proper recipe. :D
However, for some unforeseen reason, I awoke extremely early this particular morning and managed to make it back in time to make a little extra something to go with these awesome protein bites.
The best part about this brekky is just how filling and nutritionally beneficial it is. It packs a powerful punch in every aspect- which is great for fast refueling after an intense workout. You've got complex carbs, healthy fats, nutritious fruits and so. much. yumminess!
In case you were interested in what I whip up when I have slightly longer than 30 seconds, like on the weekend, then here you go:
And if you think about it, it's quite similkar to my quick brekky, just prepared differently. The oats (and cheerios!) are rubbed with pb and then baked in the oven for 15 mins, the fruit (frozen banana and frozen mango) is whazzed up with some spinach, kale, greek yoghurt, chia seeds and water and then they are both plonked together in a bowl.
What about you?
Do you wake up early to fit in a workout?
Do you prepare food in advance for busy days or just grab convenience foods?
Cheerios- thoughts? I love cheerios :)
Now, what other things do I need to get done before my free time runs out once again! TA-TA for now! :D
