Healthy breakfast ideas for commute on the tube ? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,
    I am starting a new job in London which involves a 1 hour commute by train from where I live. I would like to have breakfast on the tube to avoid spending money at Pret or Starbucks. I do not cook or bake for I do not have the amenities, but I do a bit of meal prep and try to stay healthy as much as I can. I'd usually have porridge for breakfast or yoghurt and corn/bran flakes, but I think this can be messy for the train. Could anyone recommend some breakfast ideas that are easy to prepare and to eat on the go? I was considering breakfast protein smoothies/shakes as they're healthy and easy to drink from a shaker bottle, but I don't know what brands or what ingredients to use. Could you please help?
    Thank you so much for your replies!

    But frozen smoothie packs from supermarkets. Quite cheap, maybe £1. Things like frozen mango, raspberries, strawberries, pineapple. You could buy milk but I would just add water to keep it healthy and less cost. I know you said you don’t like baking but you could make your own breakfast bar type things. Cupcake paper holder things I don’t know what they’re called, oats, fruit, milk, you know? Bake them for 10 mins and then store in the fridge and take whenever you need them. Or you could make overnight oats. Get a mason jar with a lid, add oats, add water or milk, add fruit or whatever you want to it, leave in fridge overnight and then when you wake you can just Grab it and go. Easy to prepare and easy to eat, not much mess. Will fill you up and healthy. You could buy those porridge pots you just add boiling water to... use that, add the lid, then eat it on the train.
