If your typical breakfast consists of a cup of rushed coffee and a banana, then there’s a good chance you’ll feel your stomach growling throughout the day – at least until lunchtime.
Making a healthy (and filling) breakfast doesn’t mean waking up at 5 a.m. If you plan it right, you can have a hearty breakfast every morning, without setting an earlier alarm. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Homemade Granola Parfait, 30g Protein
Greek yogurt (or, if you’re like me and hate the sour taste of Greek yogurt, normal non-fat yogurt will do), raspberries, strawberries, dark chocolate, homemade granola, and coconut oil make for a healthy, filling, and Instagram-worthy breakfast.
