I really struggle with breakfast as I don’t like eating first thing in the morning. The most I can manage on waking is a couple of soya cappuccinos. I see them as protein drinks without the added protein powder. If I’m going to the gym I’ll eat a banana.
I need my first meal at about 10 or 11am and by then I’m starving. I thought I’d post up some of my favourite breakfasts (in addition to my Kilner jar breakfast from a previous post). Two of these recipes I can knock up at work with the toaster and two are strictly for weekends. Here they are…
Homemade wholewheat pretzel with a soft poached egg

Oatbran pancakes with warmed strawberries
Recipe as follows. Mix 2 Tbsp oatbran, 1 egg and skimmed milk to make a pancake batter consistency. Spray a not stick pan with oil and split the mixture in half to fry two pancakes, flipping to cook on each side. Warm strawberries for 30 seconds to 1minute in the microwave and serve together. I sprinkled mine with sugar 🙂
