There’s no two ways about it, going back to work last week after the Christmas break was a shock to the system. The week seemed to go on forever and it became increasingly more difficult to get up in the mornings.
Instead of getting up, I’ve been hitting snooze to have an extra 10 minutes in bed, which consequently means sacrificing the time I’d spend having breakfast. As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I always feel really weird and faint if I go without it. So, instead of picking up something cheap and sugary or healthy but overpriced on my way to work, I’ve made a batch of healthy breakfast muffins for the week.
I followed a recipe from BBC Goodfood, which you can find here. They are made naturally sweet with mashed banana and apple puree whilst packed full of texture and energy from the oats, seeds and dried fruit (I substituted the blueberries for raisins). These muffins are both healthy and yummy at the same time and will keep you going until lunch time.
I didn’t make any unrealistic health resolutions this new year’s but for me it’s the little things, like starting the day off with a nutritious breakfast, that will help beat the January blues.
