5 BREAKFAST'S TO GRAB & GO

Updated: May 2, 2020

For most, breakfast is the meal that sets the tone for the rest of the day. Late Sunday morning pancakes = a day spent lounging around home, ending with Uber eats and Netflix in bed. A quick muffin and coffee from your local café on the way to the train station = a stressful morning followed by a midday sugar/caffeine crash making work near impossible.


It's an easy meal to forget or disregard, but starting your day off with a meal that is packed with vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals and the important macronutrients, is vital for functioning at your best. You'll be surprised how good you feel when you finally swap your wheetbix with sugar for something of a little more sustenance.


These 5 breakfasts are my top meals-to-go, and are all designed to be made pre-made so that you have one less stress about in the morning!
