    Oats with almond milk and some chopped up berries and fruit thrown in is a good one :top:Best way to make it filling is to volumise it, i.e. put in plenty of liquid and then microwave it so the oats absorb the liquid and swell in size. I like to cook 100g of oats in half a pint of semi-skimmed milk, then stir some water in to moisten it, but that comes out around 500 calories so you may want to use smaller amounts than that.

    This x100. I had that/slight variations for 153 days straight last year. It's possibly my proudest and best achievement of 2017.

    Oats have been a staple meal for me for several years now. Quick and easy to prepare, tastes nice, healthy - what's not to love!?

    I've been doing keto for a few years and I usually have one whole avocado, some cucumber and a few peanuts. I know it's weird combo but I love it!

    Re; the oats. You can also try overnighting them, just mix oats and almond milk with fruit/nuts/stevia/whatever works for you and put it in the fridge overnight. Gives it a lot of time to soak up and if you're in a rush in the morning it saves time.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know any healthy breakfasts or what they should include without taking too long to prepare?

    Thank-you
    Since everyone recommended oats, I thought I would add some variety to your breakfast. Oats are great but you cannot have them every single day for you'll start to hate them even if you use different toppers. What you can have instead of oats is low fat greek yoghurt with gluten free sugarless corn flakes from Holland & Barrett and some flaxseeds and/or nuts on top. Also have chia seeds with almond milk or oat milk or coconut milk. You can add a teaspoon of raw cacao in your chia seeds pot for a guilt-free chocolate flavour. Hope this helps All these have been tried and tested!

    I think generally speaking it's recommended to have some carbs for energy, some dairy (or alternatives like soya) for the calcium, some fruit for the vitamins and a long drink.

    Same everyday for lunch. I skip breakfast because of Intermittent fasting and have Oats with two tablespoons of mixed nuts and chocolate whey protein, sometimes banana depending what mood im in. Oats are so versatile add what you want with it and it will taste good. When I didn't fast I used to have a tablespoon of Nutella and oh my that is such much better than having cereal or any other unhealthy breakfast.

    Don't know how much healthy my breakfast is. But honestly, I take an half boil egg and 2 loaf. That's enough for the morning.
