Five breakfasts in ten minutes – and all under 250 calories too

We all know how difficult it is to stay healthy when you're on the go.

After all, you need that extra time in bed or making yourself look half-decent, so spending time preparing breakfast is not on the agenda (we understand – us too). So we have compiled a list of breakfast ideas you can create in just ten minutes, which are seriously healthy too. 

1. Over-night oats

These are ideal for people on the go as they take very little preparation time. Before heading to bed, just pop half a cup of oats in a bowl with half a cup of slim-line milk, put them in the fridge and they will expand over night. The next morning add toppings of your choosing, from strawberries and chia seeds to banana and peanut butter, you can make oats an exciting breakfast. 

2. Banana pancakes

These flour-less wonders take minimum prep time and are delicious. All you need is one mashed banana and two whisked eggs. Add a little cinnamon and vanilla extract to the mix for some extra flavour. Drizzle agave syrup or honey on top to satisfy your sweet craving. 

3. Smoothie

This one is extremely handy and there is a good chance you would have most of these ingredients hanging around the house. Celebrity trainer, Harley Pasternak, has devised the perfect breakfast smoothie containing almonds, apple, banana, Greek yoghurt, nonfat milk and cinnamon all blended together. This only takes five minutes to prepare but will keep you full up until lunch.

4. Breakfast muffins

Eggs & bacon breakfast muffins are the perfect meal prep food for anyone trying to eat healthy while on the go. Prepare these on a Sunday evening, cook them as you would regular muffins and they keep extremely well in the fridge. Eggs, some lean bacon and spinach is a great mix but you can be as adventurous as you like! 

5. Avocado and eggs on toast

Keep breakfast simple with this five minute meal. Lightly toast a slice of whole grain bread, mash up some avocado and put a poached egg on top. Season with some black pepper and it's ready to eat.
