If you prioritise sleep over a good breakfast, you might be after something you can quickly grab on the go. Rather than skip this pretty important meal, try some of these simple breakfast ideas that'll keep you going until lunchtime.


1. Egg muffins, egg white omelette, boiled eggs

Eggs, eggs, eggs! Regardless of how you like your eggs in the morning, they make the perfect on the go healthy breakfast. With 78 calories and 6g of protein per egg, you can pack in the protein whilst getting a good dose of healthy cholesterol and vitamins A, B-6, B-12 and D.

By combining veggies of your choice, such as red pepper, onion, leek and mushrooms, 3 egg whites and one whole egg you can make an egg white omelette containing around 150 calories.

For the imaginative, why not try creating egg white muffins? You can add your favourite veggies and cooked meats to make a great breakfast option that can be easily packed on the go. For something really quick, try boiling some eggs before bed to grab on your way out in the morning.

2. Overnight oats

If you're really pushed for time in the morning, why not try making these overnight oats recipes the night before. Simply store in the fridge overnight so you can grab and go in the morning. Oats provide a great source of slow-releasing energy without the sugar — and by adding a scoop of impact whey protein you can get over 20g of protein first thing in the morning. Try different flavours and add fruit to make every morning a little different.


3. Avocado on toast

Bread is one of the first things to go when dieting, but some carbohydrates can be an important part of your diet. For a higher protein option, why not try rye bread, or bread with nuts and seed in it. For a great topping full of healthy fats, mash avocado and add a little bit of salt, pepper and chilli if you're after a morning wake up.

4. Breakfast quinoa

Quinoa is naturally high in protein, but it's often regarded as a grain that's only for savoury dishes. However, by cooking quinoa and mixing with milk and protein powder, you can create a high-protein breakfast similar to porridge. Store in a lunchbox and enjoy on the go — try this tasty quinoa bowl recipe.


5. No-bake protein bars

Swap your high-sugar breakfast biscuits and cereal bar for a homemade protein bar. By combining oats, whey protein powder, nuts, seeds and berries, with peanut butter, a little coconut oil and yogurt/milk you can make your own protein bars in minutes. Check out this protein bar recipe.



6. Protein Pancakes

Protein pancakes are super easy to make and a delicious healthy alternative to regular pancakes. To make these from scratch, combine 1 egg or two egg whites with one scoop of whey protein and baking powder. Grease your pan with coconut oil and cook on a medium heat. Check out these protein pancake recipes for some inspiration — you can even make them the night before and heat them up the next morning for an easy breakfast.

7. Smoked salmon and low-fat cream cheese on rye crisp bread

Salmon is a great source of protein as well as essential omega-3 and essential fatty acids. Grab some rye crisp breads, coat with low fat cream cheese, and top with smoke salmon — delicious and simple to throw together the night before too.


8. Protein Smoothie

There are TONS of protein smoothie options for a quick healthy on-the-go breakfast. If you have a blender, try combining your favourite fruits and a scoop of Impact Whey Protein in the morning. If you’re a dessert kind of person try our chocolate whey, or flavours such as cookies and cream with almond milk, nut butter and a banana. Check out these smoothie recipes for inspiration.


9. Chia Pudding

Chia seeds have a series of health benefits. First of all, they help pack in the protein, but they also provide minerals such as manganese, a source of phosphorus and fibre. Try these delicious chia pudding recipes and store in a jar in the fridge overnight to grab on your way out the door.
