As winter rolls in, it’s harder to eat healthy and avoid stocking up on comfort food. But who said quick healthy eats can’t be delicious? Here are five winter food ideas that you can make under five minutes and will keep you going through the day.
The classic breakfast standard is full of protein and will sustain your energy for longer than cereal or toast. You can customize it to your taste and add meat like chorizo depending on how hungry you are. Add mushrooms, cheese and capsicum for some extra flavour.
2. Oatmeal pancakes
If you’re looking for a healthier alternative to the sweet breakfast option, oat pancakes are an excellent flourless and sugar free option. Try adding banana and serving them with fresh fruit for an extra treat.
There’s no better time than winter to make a steaming hot bowl of porridge for breakfast! Carman’s has just released some new flavours to their gourmet porridge sachet range, which you can make in just 90 seconds. They are made from 100% Australian whole grain sachets and the entire range has less than 6 grams of sugar per serve. Yum!
4. Avocado Toast
The perfectly ripe avocado may be harder to come by in winter, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying this staple! The best part is, you can have it your way – try pan-frying some asparagus to put on top, or adding some goats cheese and tomato.
5. Sweet potato breakfast hash
Combine sweet potato, breakfast sausage, onion and garlic together for the ultimate paleo breakfast. You can even serve with a fried egg for some extra protein. The best part is, it stores well so you can have it for breakfast again and again!
