Have you heard that the best way to kickstart your metabolism each morning is to eat a good balance of protein foods, healthy fats, fruits or veggies and fibre with your first meal of the day?
I typically call this formula “The Core 4” inside my Stronger Ever After coaching program, and it supports my clients with building delicious breakfasts they love (without skimping on the nutrients that matter most!) so they can build a body that makes them feel good as hell from the inside out.

For some, it can be as simple as asking yourself the following questions before you whip up your breakfast in the morning:
Is there a veggie or fruit in this meal?
(ex. Veggies in your omelette, berries in a smoothie or yogurt bowl, etc.)
Is there a key protein source?
(ex. Greek yogurt, protein powder, eggs, cottage cheese, turkey bacon, tofu, etc.)
Am I incorporating healthy fats?
(ex. Walnuts, almonds, avocados, feta or goat cheese, chia seeds, olive or flax oil, etc.)
Am I eating a sufficient amount of fibre?
(ex. Whole grains, many berries, fruits and vegetables, avocados, legumes, nuts and seeds, etc.)
Although it sounds simple enough in theory - what if you can’t always make your breakfasts on the fly? What if you’ve got kids to take care of, a job to get to, and you barely have time to think about eating breakfast, let alone what to make?
Don't worry, I’ve got you.
Today I’m sharing a roundup of my favourite make-ahead breakfasts (below) which offer a balance of all the nutrients you need to keep your body healthy and your tastebuds happy. From chia pudding to overnight oats, to bite-sized egg cups - these recipes will ensure you can still be hitting your fitness goals even on those crazy mornings when all you can do is grab the first thing in your fridge and go.
Give them a try and let me know what you think!
With love and wellness,
