let's get started let's start with five delicious and healthy breakfast ideas first, we're making this yummy oatmeal cookies you just need two ingredients to make them one cup of oats and two ripe bananas peel and then mash the bananas with a fork until you get that runny consistency put it into a bowl and add your oats mix it well with a spoon and you can totally finish here or you can add some more ingredients for a the fuller taste I like to pop in some cinnamon you can mix in chocolate chips nuts raisins whatever you prefer take a parchment-lined baking tray and place on the mixture in little piles like this.

I'm going to flatten the top with a spoon to make them look a bit more like cookies I like to decorate mine with some dried blueberries and cranberries you could have just mix this into the cookie mixture but I like how the cookies look with the dried fruit on top put your cookies in the oven at 350 Fahrenheit for 15 minutes here they are all done smelling delicious put them in an airtight container and you have a great breakfast on the go ready you can make this on the weekend and they will last you for the entire week when you're running late for school, you can just grab a couple of cookies and you're out the door a perfect way to get a nutritious and super tasty breakfast on the go I also love how you can tailor this recipe by mixing in the ingredients you like another great breakfast to go idea is yogurt and fruit in a cone take an ice cream cone and ignore me pretending to be a unicorn put some fruit in the cone-like that.

I have some blueberries which you guys know I'm obsessed with take a big spoon of yogurt I like using Greek version because it's thicker and also richer in protein than the usual one put it on the cone just like ice cream and then top it off with some more fruit I have blueberries and strawberries voila a minute breakfast that you can eat on your way to school this breakfast is so yummy and it also looks adorable right I know that the cone contains sugar but you get your protein from yogurt and benefits from fruit so from time to time I think this is a great breakfast or a snack to have cheers going to with a blueberry shot if you like fruit as much as I do then you'll love the next idea which is a fruit salad in a jar basically you just want to cut small pieces of different fruits of your choice and put those in a jar today I found in a fridge some pineapple which is one of my favorite fruits and it's also a great source of vitamin C and B.

I also have some strawberries because who doesn't love strawberries right here I have some clementine’s too and now I don't know how to juggle to me clementine’s are such a Christmassy food the markets are full of this yummy fruit in November and December in the jar I first popped some red currants pineapple then blueberries strawberries and clementine’s there you go an easy and nutritious breakfast for school or work you can make this fruit salad day evening before and in the morning you have a delicious breakfast waiting for you this next one is probably my favorite breakfast in the bunch of delicious granola bars with nuts fruit and chocolate chips you need chopped cashews pumpkin seeds chopped almonds cranberries puffed rice dark chocolate chunks flax seeds and a pinch of salt give it a little mix.

Then in a separate bowl combine 1 tablespoon of almond or peanut butter and 1/4 of a cup of rice syrup stir those two together until you have a nice even mixture and then pour it into the bowl with nuts and seeds mix well until all the ingredients are nicely incorporated like that put the mixture on a smaller parchment lined baking sheet flat it down really well to assure that there are no free spaces in the mix pop it in the oven and bake at 320 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes you can cut your bars when the mixture is still hot you can wait for them to cool down these granola bars are seriously delicious.

You can store them in an airtight container so they remain fresh and crispy or you can put your bar in a little plastic bag and you can have it as a snack during the day the granola bars that you buy in a shop are usually packed with sugar and other unhealthy stuff.

With these homemade bars you know what you put in and you can always adjust the recipe to your liking when you have more time before your classes start you can make this breakfast which is just as yummy as it is pretty to look at for the pepper eggs first cut 2 slices of pepper which would be about half an inch thick place them in a frying pan and then beat one egg into each pepper rings see how cool this looks already add a pinch of salt or any other seasoning of your choice while the eggs are cooking I'm going to make some fruit kabobs because I want this breakfast to be extra picture worthy take the fruits of your choice and cut them into pieces here.

I have some strawberries a kiwi a banana and blueberries if you love blueberries Norway is definitely the place to live if you follow me on Instagram you know that I've been picking so many blueberries this year they were literally everywhere here you go how adorable are these and of course tasty and healthy too I love them when the eggs are done carefully put them on a plate and as a side, we have our pretty fruit kabobs this breakfast is just delicious nutritious and totally Instagram-worthy I mean come on don't deny it.

I know you do it too we're all guilty here no but seriously I think this is a great breakfast for when you have a bit more time and you want to eat something healthy but also have fun preparing it breakfast for champs for sure now let's move on to the lunch portion of this blog, first we're making some healthy egg muffins with veggies with three eggs into a mixing bowl take your hand mixer and whisk the eggs while doing that add about a deciliter of milk and one or two tablespoons of flour I'm using almond milk and buckwheat flour but any milk and flour will do put the mixture into the muffin form since I have the silicone form.

I don't have to use the paper muffin cups but go ahead and use those if you have them leave the muffins aside for a minute and cut the veggies of your choice into small pieces I got some peppers tomato and a zucchini you can also put in mushrooms carrots spinach or any other vegetables of your choice throw the veggie pieces into the muffin mixture as much or as little as you like I like to be quite generous with vegetables so I'm putting loads of them put the muffins in the oven and bake at about 320 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes these muffins are so yummy and healthy and you can have them hot or cold make them the day before and then take them to school or work.

I added some grapes goji berries and almonds to my lunch box as well the egg muffins are also nice as a little snack at home in the fridge they will last you up to three to four days a tasty and nutritious lunch for school a great lunch idea on the go is a salad in a jar the options here are endless so use whatever salad you like or happen to have in the fridge I'm going to use some cherry tomatoes these are so sweet and good I also like to add a lot of peppers I have a yellow and an orange one I will also add some cucumber to my salad finally I'm cutting some feta cheese cubes and now it's time to drop all that goodness into a jar.

You can make this salad the day before school and then just grab it in the morning especially if you're not using the leafy greens in your salad like me drizzle with a bit of olive oil and splash of lemon juice for the dressing you can throw this salad into your school back and have it ready for when your tummy gets hungry, I have salad for lunch almost every day.

I love how it fills you up but it's also a light meal heavy lunches sometimes make me feel tired and without energy for the rest of the day a nice salad like this will instead make you feel refreshed and full of energy next we're making this delicious spelt bread sandwich I'm going to show you how I make the most tasty and quick bread from scratch put 500 grams of spelt flour into a bowl I'm using a mix of finely and coarsely ground floor add a tablespoon of baking soda a teaspoon of sugar I'm using coconut sugar a pinch of salt 2 tablespoons of olive oil juice of half a lemon and 5.5 deciliters of water mix this star only until all the ingredients are evenly combined pour the mixture into a bread form sprinkle with some sunflower seeds and put it in the oven bake for an hour at 320 degrees Fahrenheit this rate only takes ten minutes of your time.

It's just so much healthier than the ones you buy in a supermarket which normally has too much salt added plus all the preservatives and other nasty stuff since I learned this recipe from my boyfriend's mom almost a year ago I never bought bread again trust me I always bake it myself cut two slices of bread and make yourself a nice tasty sandwich I like to spread some butter on one piece and then add some lettuce turkey slices tomatoes and mozzarella cheese plus pickles which are like my favorite thing in the whole world and that's it a delicious spelt bread sandwich into my lunchbox I also added some red currants and blueberries is super tasty lunch for school or work.

Yum floor and here you have an example of an epic fail while filming anyway this is my healthier twist on a sandwich that you really need to try now let's make a little lunch apple or tapas inspired lunchbox first I'm going to show you how to make these yummy ham rolls take some ham or turkey slices and spread on some brie cheese put on a few rocket leaves roll the ham like this and secure it with a toothpick these rooms are so tasty and perfect for a snack lunch or even a party you can make them in advance and store them in a fridge in an airtight container in my lunchbox I'm putting a cracker free turkey rolls and then I also decided to add some veggies.

So here I'm cutting carrots into thin sticks do the same with cucumbers and put all these vitamins into a lunchbox we're not finished yet here are some dried apricots and cashew nuts my mouth water while I'm just looking at all this goodness this lunch is great for on-the-go as it contains so many little snacks that you can have during day when you get a bit hungry you can also add some cherry tomatoes cheese sticks or whatever you prefer.

If you make yourself a nice lunch box filled with healthy stuff that you actually love you definitely won't be craving a pizza or a chocolate bar from the vending machine lastly we're making a super tasty tuna wrap which is just so good trust me what you need is some cheese cherry tomatoes olives and pickles all cut in small pieces plus some canned tuna mayonnaise and a tortilla put everything into a bowl except the tortilla obviously and mix well if you want to make this healthier you can use the whole-wheat tortilla and you can skip the mail but I think this combination is just so good so I'm totally having it no regrets put some mixture in the center of tortilla and wrap it up you can cut it in half if you want and see how tasty this looks in the box I'm also adding some strawberries and two pieces of dark chocolate for the dessert again you can prepare this lunch in advance so in the morning you just grab your lunch box and you're good to go another little idea make this tuna mixture and instead of putting it in the tortilla use it as a topping for pasta you get the most delicious pasta salad ever.

If you want a bit healthier version try using spelt pasta instead of the usual wheat one so good I promise these were my ten healthy lunch and breakfast recipes I hope you'll try them out and will like them as much as I do let me know which recipe is your favorite and don't forget to give the blog, some love if you want more tutorials like this thank you so much for stopping by I love you guys and I'll talk to you soon bye eating healthy on the go is not easy usually when in a hurry we end up snacking on chocolate bars pizza slices and other fast food options take some time today and make yourself a good nutritious breakfast or lunch for tomorrow you'll feel so much better fresh and energized ready to tackle the word.
