Wellness Wednesday–Fast Breakfast Idea


Hey everyone!  Here’s a quick tip on a fast breakfast that is many times one of my handful of go-to’s for when I have to be up early and don’t want to cook anything.  It’s very easy and can be modified to fit whatever your macronutrient ratios/caloric intakes should look like!


1 cup (or half of the container if you buy the 17.6oz containers) of full-fat Fage Greek Yogurt (11g fat, 9g carbs, 20g protein)

~1 scoop of protein powder (or about 20g worth–or more, depending–of whey protein)

-1 bag of frozen mixed fruit (3 servings @ 16g carbs/serving = 48g carbs)


Grand total:  11g fat, 57g carbs, 40g protein


Preparation:  I take the frozen fruit bag out of the freezer and set it on the counter the night before.  Then I simply scoop it all into a container and go!  It’s super simple, requires almost zero prep, and it’s a hearty breakfast that holds me over for a few hours (thanks to the dietary fat), starts me off with a good amount of protein, and gives me a fair amount of carbs to use in my morning training session.


Again, this is all able to be individualized, so make this fit YOUR ideal food profile.  I wanted to offer this selection because I think there’s no good excuse for having a crappy breakfast simply because of time constraints; the prep time for this is barely more than opening up a wrapper on some junk bar you’d otherwise have, so take the extra 30 seconds to put this together and feel the difference between a great start to your day versus a poor one.


I hope that helps!  If anyone else has any other great and balanced meal or snack ideas, send them to me and I’ll toss them up for everyone to see!
