Usually an extra 10 minutes of sleep in the morning sounds more appealing than sitting down to eat breakfast. Mornings are busy, we get it. That’s why we put together three quick, balanced breakfasts to help squeeze some nutrition into your busy mornings.
1. Speedy smoothie
If you’ve ever made a smoothie, you know it can get messy and timely to wash and chop fruits and veggies, measure out your yogurt or milk, and then clean up after yourself. For a speedy smoothie, use “no mess” ingredients that don’t require any chopping, measuring, utensils, or clean up. Bananas, frozen fruit, protein powder, and milk or almond milk can be thrown in the blender with virtually no clean up. And if you’re really in a rush, just grab a thinkThin High Protein Smoothie Mix packet, which does all the work for you by combining real fruit with nutritious ingredients. All you have to do is add water or milk, ice and blend.
2. Microwave eggs
For a savory, protein-rich option, add 2 eggs, salt, pepper, and a splash of milk to a coffee mug. Whisk with a fork and microwave for 90 seconds or until eggs are set. While waiting for the eggs to cook, throw a piece of whole wheat bread in the toaster to add some fiber to your morning.
3. Instant oatmeal packets or bowls
Instant oatmeal is a great way to get some fiber in your morning when running short on time. Try keeping a stash in your desk at the office if you’re always running late (pro tip—use the hot water from the coffee machine and you don’t even need a microwave!). Keep your mid-morning hunger pangs at bay with thinkThin® Protein & Fiber Hot Oatmeal, which has 10g of protein per serving! You can also stir in some chopped nuts, peanut butter, or yogurt to add an additional protein boost.
Now that summer is over and school is back in session, mornings can be even more difficult. That’s why thinkThin® wants to help you keep those sunny island vibes going with our coconut flavored products! These options are perfect as an on-the-go snack or for those times in the morning when you need to grab something quick on your way out the door.
