6 a.m. Alarm blares. Hit snooze button immediately.

6.15 a.m. Alarm blares. Ugh, just five more minutes.

6.30 a.m. Okay, now I really need to get up.

7 a.m. Jump out of bed. Running late…once again.

We get it, sometimes it’s easier to curl up and get some more shut-eye (especially when it’s cold) than to get out of bed and figure our what to eat. However, the benefits of starting your day with a nutritious, protein-rich meal are pretty hard to ignore.

Luckily, you can have your sleep and eat a healthy breakfast too. Ahead, you’ll find three of Jacqueline Alwill’s favourite breakfast recipes that are not only quick and simple to make, but are also jam-packed with essential nutrients.
