Since starting my new job three Mondays ago, I have forgotten how to eat breakfast. My body is out of sync and the prospect of eating my usual breakfast choice of porridge before I leave the house literally turns my stomach! Alas I tried this morning to throw a bowl of coconut and raisin porridge down my neck before power walking for my bus… But my tummy wasn’t having any of it. One mouthful through my food, I was literally gagging. What the heck is wrong with me?
The repercussions of not eating breakfast are not good. I’m not concentrating as much as I could be at work and I’m hungry through the day. I need a solution. I need to sort this out.
You see I used to eat my breakfast at work. I’d been awake for three hours and was ready for it. However my feet don’t touch the ground the second I press the on-button on my laptop in my new job. Taking precious time out of my morning just isn’t an option, and I can’t get in earlier due to public transport. Eating before I get the bus makes me feel sick and there’s not enough time to eat at work. I think have an idea that may help me kick start my day healthily.
A healthy breakfast should contain oats, fruit and dairy. Or to my mind it should. If I blend all of these together, I could drink my breakfast, drink it! What a good idea?! Why can’t I just buy a smoothie? Simple, we’ve all seen the news… They’re full of sugar and preservatives. Not for me thanks, that’s not how I want to start my day.
My solution is to make a drinkable breakfast and have it on my way into work, and my next step is to find some cheap fruit, blend-able oats and dust down my smoothie maker.
… And find some recipes! If you have some you think I should try, send them my way.
This week is all about leaning to eat breakfast again!
