Why is breakfast important?
A well-balanced breakfast stimulates our body and brain, gives us energy and prevents us from resorting to unhealthy mid-morning snacks. Studies have shown that people who eat breakfast regularly have fewer weight problems and generally better concentration throughout the day.
Benefits of preparing breakfast in advance
There are several advantages to preparing breakfast in advance. Not only do you save time in the morning, but you also ensure that you eat a nutritious meal. This is especially useful for those who are trying to eat healthier or are following a specific diet. By planning ahead, you can control the ingredients and nutritional values of your meals.
5 IDEAS FOR HEALTHY AND FIT BREAKFASTS
1. "Overnight oats" or "Overnight porridge"
For those who want a healthy and nutritious start to the day without the morning rush, "Overnight Oats" or overnight oatmeal is perfect. This simple yet highly flexible breakfast allows you to have a meal full of flavour and textures waiting for you in the fridge in the morning, filling you up and energising you.
Ingredients for Preparation
The ingredients for ''Overnight Oats'' are a simple but powerful combination:
- Oatmeal: The basis of this breakfast, full of fibre that stimulates digestion and keeps you full for longer. You can use BAM FIT Academy Oatmeal as a base.
- Milk or plant alternative: Milk gives the oatmeal a creamy texture, while you can adjust the taste and nutritional value by choosing a plant-based substitute such as almond or oat milk.
- BAM FIT Academy Jams: This additive not only enriches your Overnight Oats with natural sweetness, but also adds a pleasant fruity note. Choose from flavours such as raspberry, strawberry, apricot or plum.
- Optional additives: Play with flavours and textures. Fresh fruit, nuts, seeds or even a little honey or maple syrup can create a new experience every morning.
Preparing "Overnight Oats" is as simple as it sounds.
Start by mixing oats and milk (or milk alternative) in a 1:1 ratio. This step is the foundation of your breakfast. The oatmeal will absorb the liquid overnight, making it soft and creamy.
Add a spoonful of BAM FIT Academy jam with no added sugar for a wonderful fruity taste.
Mix everything together in a container with a lid and refrigerate overnight. While you rest, the oatmeal will absorb all the flavour and liquid you''ve added.
For breakfast, you can have a creamy, rich and tasty meal prepared in advance, low in calories. You can personalise your breakfast with the additions you want. Add freshly cut fruit for freshness, nuts for crunch or seeds for extra nutrients.
With Overnight Oatmeal, you not only get a healthy and tasty breakfast, but also the satisfaction of knowing you''ve started your day in the best possible way.
2. Chia Pudding with yoghurt and fresh fruit
Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fibre. To make chia pudding, mix chia seeds with yoghurt and leave overnight to swell. In the morning, add fresh fruit for vitamins and minerals and extra sweetness. This combination will give you the energy and nutrients you need to start your day.
3. Protein smoothie with oatmeal and BAM FIT Academy jams
Start your day with the energy of a protein smoothie with oatmeal and BAM FIT Academy Jams. This smoothie is a great source of protein and fibre and is also extremely tasty and refreshing. Ideal for after a morning workout or as a quick, nutritious breakfast when you''re on the go.
Why choose a protein smoothie?
- Protein: essential for muscle repair and growth, especially after exercise
- Oatmeal: adds fibre to aid digestion and keep you fuller for longer
- BAM FIT Academy Jams: add natural sweetness and fruity flavour, while enriching your smoothie with extra vitamins
- Fresh or frozen fruit: increases the nutritional value of your smoothie and adds antioxidants
4. Yoghurt with layers of oatmeal, jam and fresh fruit
Make a tasty and visually appealing breakfast. Start your day with layered yoghurt, a real palette of flavours and colours, stacked in a glass jar. This wonderful layered breakfast combines creamy yoghurt, soft oatmeal, the rich flavour of BAM FIT Academy jams and colourful fresh fruit to create a true synphony of flavours.
Start your breakfast with a layer of yoghurt to serve as a base. You can choose the yoghurt to suit your taste; either classic Greek yoghurt for extra creaminess or plant-based yoghurt for a vegan version. Sprinkle a layer of oat flakes on top of this creamy base to add texture and fibre, essential for long-lasting satiety and stable energy levels. At the same time, you''ll also get in the calcium and protein you need.
The next layer is BAM FIT Academy jam, which will add sweetness and fruity flavour to your breakfast, while enriching your meal with extra vitamins. You can choose from different flavours such as raspberry, strawberry, apricot or plum.
Finish with a rich layer of fresh fruit. Add sliced strawberries, blueberries, bananas or any other fruit that is in season. Your breakfast will become a feast for the eyes.
5. Baked oatmeal with jam and nuts
For those of you who crave a warm breakfast on cold mornings, baked oatmeal is the perfect choice. Start the night before; in a large bowl, combine the oatmeal with milk or your choice of plant-based alternative to create the base of your breakfast. The liquid will soften the flakes overnight so they are ready to bake the next morning.
Add a spoonful of BAM FIT Academy Jam to add a unique sweetness and depth of flavour to your baked cereal. Choose your favourite flavour - raspberry, strawberry, apricot or plum - and enjoy how the rich taste of the fruit blends with the smoothness of the oatmeal. This step not only enriches the flavour of your breakfast, but also introduces vibrant colours that make the dish even more appealing.
Stir in a few nuts - almonds, walnuts or pecans - for extra texture and nutrients. These will add crunch and rich flavour, and are a great source of healthy fats, protein and fibre that contribute to a balanced meal.
When your mixture is ready, transfer it to a baking tray lined with baking paper or lightly buttered to prevent sticking. Bake in a preheated oven at a medium temperature until the flakes are golden brown and fragrant. Baking not only brings out the rich flavours of the ingredients, but also creates a pleasant warmth that is perfect for the start of a cold day.
Once your breakfast is cooked, take it out of the oven and let it cool down a bit. Then serve in deep bowls, perhaps with some fresh fruit, yoghurt or a little BAM FIT Academy jam on top for extra sweetness and flavour. Energy for the whole morning is guaranteed!
