4 EXPRESS nutritious breakfasts

that boost your energy for the day

Many people that I know do not have a habit to eat breakfast for different reasons. Most of us try to get maximum amount of sleep and set a very tight margin to prep ourselves for work in the moring. Wake up, freshen up, get dressed and rush off to work. Some just don’t have the appetite in the morning to eat a proper meal. It is not necessarily “bad” to skip breakfast but I do believe that eating a good breakfast is a great way to start the day, especially if you workout before work, an energy-boosting breakfast can absolutely get you an effective workout and you will be productive at work.

I love cooking and I am an early person (or I should say that my job requires me to get up early!) so I do not mind to make a proper breakfast before work. But if you are not the early peeps and still want to feed yourself with some nutritious food in the morning with minimum time and effort, this is the article that you should be reading as I will be giving you some simple, tasty, including savory and sweet breakfasts that are ready in 5 minutes!

Try to keep things simple and design your plate with a portion of each macros…
