3 Easy Breakfast Hacks for Early Mornings
By: Austin Moncivaez
Struggling to get your morning started off on the right foot? Good nutrition in the morning is the key to feeling good throughout the day, especially if you are planning on working out. For those of us who are up early and out the door, whether it’s to the gym or to work, getting a meal in that’s both nutritious and convenient is a task that is often easier said than done. That’s where a little bit of planning and help from us comes in. Here are some simple recipes and ideas to get you fueled and ready to crush your day.
- 1 cup of quick oats
- ¾ cup of milk or almond milk
- 1 scoop of Edge Fitness Performance Vanilla Whey Protein
This one is the absolute easiest, and takes zero time in the morning, because the prep is done the night before. Combine ingredients in a Tupperware or similar container at night, and place in the fridge. If you can spare 30 seconds in the morning, slice up a banana and enjoy your quick and easy breakfast.
- 10 – 12 ounces of milk or almond milk
- 1 scoop of Edge Fitness Performance Chocolate Peanut Butter Whey Protein
- 1 banana
- 1 tablespoon of peanut butter or almond butter
This one takes a little bit longer than the overnight oats, but is still a breeze to throw together early in the morning. Blend everything together and throw it in your favorite to-go cup and enjoy it on your morning drive to work. As an alternative, if chocolate peanut butter isn’t your thing (what’s wrong with you?), substitute the chocolate PB protein for our vanilla, and the scoop of peanut butter for a cup of sliced up strawberries for a delicious strawberry banana smoothie.
- 1 mug of your favorite coffee
- 1 scoop of EFP Vanilla Whey Protein
Not a breakfast eater? If you like to simply start your morning with a hot cup of joe, and then eat a little later, try a scoop of our vanilla whey protein stirred up in your favorite coffee. It mixes great, and adds some healthy sweetness so you don’t have to worry about doctoring your coffee up with sugary creamers or sweeteners.
