Ok, following on from my previous post where time is short and you want to pack in some nutrients and eat well but keep it vegetarian or vegan. I have my latest go to breakfasts aside from Muesli.
Scrambled Tofu on toast I think I originally had this at Huia cafe after a morning run and it was amazing. SO I gave it a go at home and was suprised how easy it was to put together and as someone who is training alot it is a great way to make sure you are getting good levels of protein through the day starting with Breakfast! Now you can spice it up how you want and again like the other recipes I have shared you can jam all your fav veges in there to make it more nutritionally dense .....if you are training hard this is important to help fortify your immune system.
Heat your pan with a table spoon of oil, add in some spices (I use garam masala curry powder )
A block of firm tofu from the super market, use 1/2 or a whole its up to you, dice it up and throw in the pan
heat on mid temp, add in you vegetables like pre cooked potato or mushroom, tomato, brocolli, cabbage, etc etc ( I like to go for 3 colours of vegetables)
once Tofu is cooked through put on 1-2 pieces of toast and consume! nom.
Fruit Smoothie So this one is your regular smoothie. nothing fancy but great if you dont want anything heavy in your stomach because you have a double training day or because your just not much of a breakfast person. I use the same base ingredients and add bits and pieces in at different times depending how I feel or what I think I might need more of like seeds, nuts, peanut butter
1 cup of fortified soy milk ( great way to make sure you are getting protein, B12 for the vegans, and a mix of other viatmins) add in 3/4 of a cup of frozen mixed fruit or berries, add a bannna, if you have a vege/vegan friendly protein powder a tablespoon of this can bolster your daily protein requirements.
Blend the bejesus out of it
Smash it back before getting into your day! too easy!
