The number one complaint I hear from my clients and club members is they don’t know what to eat for breakfast that conforms to the healthy eating guidelines that I set out.

Breakfast can be tricky if you are not willing to get up early and fuel your body correctly for the day ahead. Having said that, fasting is gaining huge popularity and some are choosing to forgo breakfast and wait until lunch.

Technically speaking if you skipped breakfast altogether you would be dead 🙂

Sometimes I like to fast for a while or until I have the time to prepare something decent. Sometimes I am very hungry and want something quick and easy. So here are three options you might like.


Almond Banana pancakes


  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 banana
  • 1 scoop of protein powder (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp of almond flour


Here we have a great little healthy recipe which works great as a breakfast or dessert.  Simply mash your banana, beat your egg and combine together. Then add in the flour and protein powder, and mix well. If you need a runnier consistency, a drop of water or almond milk will do. Warm butter or coconut oil in a pan and pour batter into small cakes. Brown on each side and serve with blueberries.

Pro’s – Tastes great, quick and easy, good energy provider!

Con’s – Not massively filling so need to eat lots of them or add lots of fruit


Bacon and scrambled eggs


I am sure I don’t need to tell anyone how to cook this, buy decent quality and make sure you enjoy it or what is the point! I like to scramble at least 3 or 4 eggs and don’t be throwing those yolks away, that’s were all the good stuff is!

Pro’s – Quick, easy, delicious, satisfying protein!

Con’s – Can be high calorie, can get boring quickly, not much scope to add veg or fruit.


Protein shake


For this one you will need a blender, I like to use the Kenwood smoothie 2 go (just saying), it has a detachable cup which you can take with you, although make sure you clean it out as soon as you have consumed it or else it will stink to high heaven very quickly.


There is a ton of variation with making protein shakes, I like to have 3 or 4 different flavoured protein powders so as not to get bored. Some flavours like strawberry won’t work with peanut butter, and you know you can’t not try the peanut butter and banana combo! 🙂

Here is a few that I like.

  • 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 banana
  • 2 ice cubes
  • A handful of spinach (you won’t taste it)
  • 1 raw egg
  • Almond or cows milk to desired consistency


  • 2 scoops of banana protein powder
  • 1 banana
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Almond or cows milk

Other ingredients I might use are – coconut oil, different fruits such as blueberries, melon and apple, and oats, you can also chuck in any supplements you take such as creatine or glutamine.

Pro’s – quick, simple, good scope to get all three macros in one go!

Con’s – not massively filling, you’ll probably be hungry within an hour or two.


I hope you try some of these and find them useful alternatives to what you are currently using.
