5 Creative Concoctions for Your Morning Commute

With these quick and healthy choices, skipping the most important meal of the day will quickly be a thing of the past.

5 Creative Concoctions for Your Morning Commute

We all agree that mornings can be hectic, and with the average British person spending 54 minutes each day amongst the mayhem of the morning commute, it's easy to forget about breakfast. Whether you're in a car or taking public transportation, here are the best creative concoctions.

1. Bircher Muesli

This delicious mixture of muesli is packed with flavour and essential nutrients that you can make the night before and pop in the fridge. Throw some oats, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds or some chopped nuts into a container. Next, pour some milk on top and try adding unsweetened yogurt and fresh fruit. With summer upon us, it is a fantastic time for some creative concoctions. Try nectarines and blueberries or with Wimbledon approaching, some chopped strawberries and cream. Mix it all up and leave it in the fridge overnight. All that is left to do is to grab your container and hop out of the door in the morning.

2. Homemade Granola Bar

Granola bars are great to put in your lunchbox, or to chow down on your commute with a cup of coffee. Make your own batch of granola bars the night before and simply grab one or two in the morning. Mix up some oats, dates, and some chopped almonds together with some honey and peanut butter and you will have a perfect hearty snack, that will keep you full for hours. These granola bars contain healthy fats from the almonds and the peanut butter and are packed with fibre from the oats.

All you need to do is:

Place the oats, almonds and dates in a mixing bowl.

Warm up the honey with some peanut butter over low heat and pour over the oat mix.

Once the mix is coated, transfer into a tray and flatten.

Cover the tray with some cling film and let it firm up in the fridge for 30 minutes or so.

Remove the mix and chop up into a few bars.

Store in an airtight container and enjoy your bars all week long.

3. Quinoa Porridge

This another fantastic breakfast you can make ahead and take absolutely anywhere. The Quinoa porridge provides a bigger hit of protein than regular porridge and is perfect for those morning aches and pains after your workout. All you need to do is cook the quinoa as it says on the packet, when it is almost done, add a cup of milk and simmer until it thickens. Move the quinoa to an airtight container and pop in the fridge overnight until it's time for breakfast. In the morning, heat up in the microwave and add whatever delights you like; cranberries, raisins and dried apricots are just a few. Pour in a travel cup, grab a spoon and enjoy.

4. Porridge

The health benefits of porridge appear to be endless; but let's face it; without some creative flair, porridge can get boring, and fast. Luckily porridge is incredibly versatile and you can do just about anything with it, as well as enjoy it on the go. Some porridge brands contain no added sugar, leaving you to get creative with more natural sugars. Adding fruit like apple chunks and pears pieces will give you some extra crunch in the morning whilst adding a dollop of yogurt will add some lovely creaminess. Simply prepare your ingredients (which can be anything) the night before and swirl them into your morning porridge. Make sure you invest in a travel mug with a wide neck so you can easily pour your porridge in and scoop it out on your way to work.

5. Green Smoothie

With Nutribullet and blenders, it's simple to make a quick and nutritious breakfast that really packs a punch. Throw some orange, a scoop of protein powder, banana, kale, and a chopped apple into your Nutribullet or blender. Then blend and pour into a travel mug and enjoy your healthy drink/breakfast in your car, or on public transport.

Keep The Kids Busy With This Step-By-Step Guide To A DIY Hiding Space

How much do kids love a hiding space? For that matter, how much do adults love one, too? I love it when my kids create their own spaces to hide in, but I don’t love the mess left afterwards. I feel like I’m folding up sheets and putting away cushions for days.This is a hiding spot you can make that is somewhat more permanent, and can be quickly collapsed and put away for another day.
