Healthy Breakfast Recipe

I feel like one of the hardest parts of making a workout an important part of your day is the amount of water that you need to drink after said workout and figuring out what to eat. If I’m headed to a morning workout I never eat breakfast before I go because chances are it’ll come up during bootcamp. That leaves after workout, which poses a whole new set of issues since I’m usually coming home to a full inbox of emails that all need responses. 

I have a habit of coming home, allowing myself to get distracted by emails and before I know it the clock says 11am and I’m shaking from lack of food. At this point nothing sounds good to eat because it all requires some effort on my part.

Since I know this about myself, there are some ingredients I’ve started making sure I always have on hand so I can throw together a quick and tasty meal, that’s good for me, after workout. I thought I would share it with you.

Ingredients:

  • Eggs
  • Mushrooms (chopped)
  • Sweet Onion (chopped)
  • Basil
  • Quinoa 
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Directions:

  • Make sure your Quinoa is cooked ahead of time to make it easy to reheat
  • Take quinoa, chopped mushrooms, chopped onions, basil and minced garlic and heat it in a skillet pan with a little bit of butter. Add salt an pepper to taste.
  • In a separate skillet pan, cook your eggs. I like to make them sunny side up, but you can scramble them if you like as well.
  • Once cooked I plate my veggie mix first, then place my eggs on top that way I get a little bit of everything in every bite.

I love this recipe. I’m able to make a delicious and healthy I might add, breakfast, in 10 minutes. The other great thing about this recipe is that you can add avocado, tomatoes or any other veggies you want to it and it’ll still taste good. There’s nothing like a recipe that’s versatile and will still taste yummy, especially after a hard workout when you really want to get that protein intake. 

Do you have any quick and healthy breakfast recipes for after a hard workout?
