What to Make for Breakfast on a Monday Morning

Monday mornings can be a hectic time for many people. Between getting ready for work, getting the kids off to school, and trying to fit in a workout, it can be hard to find time to make a healthy breakfast. However, starting your day with a nutritious meal can help you feel energised and focused for the rest of the day. Here are some easy and delicious breakfast ideas to make on a Monday morning:

Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are a great option for busy mornings. Simply mix together oats, milk, yoghurt, and any desired toppings (such as fruit, nuts, or honey) in a mason jar or other container and leave them in the fridge overnight. In the morning, you can grab and go or heat it up for a warm breakfast.

Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are a great way to pack in a lot of nutrients in a small amount of time. In a mixing bowl, combine your favourite fruits and vegetables (such as spinach, berries, and bananas) with a liquid (such as almond milk or yoghurt). Top with your favourite toppings (like granola, nuts, or coconut flakes) for added texture and flavour.
