Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but not all take it as seriously as they should! Sometimes we need to rush out for work in the morning and therefore have limited time for a proper breakfast, while on other days we just want to sleep in and wake up for brunch. Here are 5 fast and easy breakfast ideas you can try out to start your day the right way!
1. Singaporean Style breakfast
It is essentially a combination of three simple things – coffee (or tea if you prefer), 2 soft-boiled eggs and white/toasted bread spread with kaya and butter. It’s actually so easy and can be prepared in a short time! While your eggs are cooking, spread your butter and kaya on a few slices of bread, make your coffee and you’re done! This traditional breakfast set is loved by many locals and some enjoy it by dipping their bread into their soft-boiled eggs or coffee. Do it the way you find satisfying!
2. Oat bowl
There are many benefits of eating oats since they contain many types of minerals and vitamins. Consuming oats can help in stabilizing your blood sugar and lowering cholesterol. There are so many ways to eat oats that you can never get tired of it. Pair it with your favourite toppings such as fruit and nuts. Make a sweet version by drizzling some honey or maple syrup!
You can also cook a bigger amount, keep the rest in a container and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days – simply add some water or milk before reheating in the microwave or on a stove. This makes it even faster to prepare in the morning!
A salad doesn’t take much time to prepare since it doesn’t involve cooking. Simply drizzle your favourite salad dressing over and dig in! It is not recommended to have a heavy breakfast as it can slow down your productivity, so salad is a great choice as it is light and healthy. Salads are also good for those on a diet, just make sure you go for healthier dressings too.
Egg is one of the most versatile ingredients when it comes to cooking, and is also loaded with lots of nutrients. There are also so many ways to have an omelette that you will get tired of it easily. Prepare your ingredients such as tomatoes and onions the night before by chopping them and storing them in the fridge before use. It doesn’t take much skill or time to make an omelette so you’ll be able to enjoy your breakfast even on a busy morning.
Porridge can be made easily and quickly by adding some water to your leftover cooked rice and bringing it to boil. Add some simple ingredients such as shredded chicken or chopped vegetables and season it with some soy sauce and pepper. This is a comforting dish that will warm up your body and is easy to digest, so it is especially suitable if you happen to be wake up feeling under the weather.
