Quick and easy breakfast ideas

If you are anything like me, sometimes you just need a quick, easy and possibly all ready to go breakfast. These two recipes are by far my favourite, go to meals when I’m rushing or being lazy in the morning. They both contain a good balance of carbs and proteins to get your day started off just right.

Healthy Pumpkin Spice Latte

PSL

 

It’s that time of year where PSLs are out in full force.  I happen to love lattes and also pumpkin however the Starbucks brands are soooooo WAY over the top for this girls stomach.  As much as I enjoy a sugary treat every now and then, my stomach is very fickle about which ones it will accept and these it will not.  So I have been looking at different recipes this year with a lower sugar content and tried a few this weekend.  The winner from LoveSweatFitness has got to be, hands down, my favorite from all the ones I tried.  The flavor is good, not too much pumpkin spice and enough of a kick (I used espresso :D).

Try it out.  I am sure you will enjoy it.

1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of your choice, personally I prefer 2%)
2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1 cup brewed coffee (or 1-2 shots of espresso)
Sprinkle of cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice

Place your milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, and maple syrup in a sauce pan and whisk until hot.

Add the mixture to your brewed coffee and sprinkle some cinnamon and pumpkin spice on top.

This recipe is good for two lattes.

 

 

 

Protein Snacks

I am forever searching for quick protein snacks that I can eat on the fly, so I’ve been experimenting with recipes and have gotten a few good ones.  These ones are a little higher in the carb department but they taste great and still packed with protein.
