As students (or maybe just people in general?) we all need more of one thing.
That’s right I’m talking about SLEEP. So it’s sometimes easy to choose those 20 minutes of sleep over a good breakfast but in the long run that is NOT a good idea.
It’s easy to grab a cup of coffee on the way out the door or even when you get to campus/work but come 10.30am and your caffeine high starts to drop you are going to regret the decision to forgo that good breakfast.
Starting the day of well can set your mood and productivity for the rest of the day. It’s not easy to change habits you’ve had for years, especially if you don’t know where to start. So here are some ideas 🙂
I like to start of everyday with hot water, lemon, mint and a dash of honey and then usually go on to one of my quick and easy breakfasts:
Oats with peanut butter – as my father says “peanut butter fixes everything!”
Breakfast smoothie – Banana, coconut milk, natural yoghurt, 2tsp of coffee and 1 scoop of ice cream/frozen yoghurt.
Rice cakes with Avocado with a sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Omelette (peppers,mushrooms, onions, cheese)
Usually accompanied by either tea/coffee (depends on the mood I’m in :P)
So let’s try to start the day with a better breakfast. It may take some time to get used to but it’ll be worth it when you do.
