Whip up these easy brekkie recipes for a protein-packed morning meal.
Even if you don’t subscribe to the notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, most will at least accept it’s pretty damn important – especially when their stomach starts growling aggressively from hunger during that mid-morning catch-up with the boss. Unfortunately it’s also a meal that’s hard to give the attention it deserves, because spending a lot of time making breakfast generally means either cutting into your sleep, or being late for work which, funnily enough, your boss wants a catch-up about.
All of which makes these five quick, easy and tasty recipes from Instagram’s finest no-fuss foodie The Food Grinder an absolute godsend. Each contains a hefty portion of protein so they’re ideal fodder for a post-workout meal – if you’re up early enough to fit in a workout before breakfast, that is.

It’s not a particularly healthy breakfast, but it is healthier than getting a McMuffin from your local Golden Arches, and going home-made is more satisfying to boot.

Swap out the bacon and sausage for halloumi and spinach and the traditional fry-up takes on a new, somewhat healthier look. And halloumi is the best breakfast food anyway.
