Lazy Breakfast Mix-and-Match Recipe

Wednesday, May 09, 2018

I've been inspired to collect moments - not only those adventurous ones in the jungle or the sea but also my food moments. They're all some kind of effortless meals with least preparation, most importantly they look good, and yum!

I have this kind of addiction over mix-and-match things - like this.
Me and my gorgeous housemate been making overnight oats for quite some time, and when I've got no time, or merely too lazy for just a simple overnight oat, I opt for some lazy breakfasts. All I have to do is, do the cutting and that's it!

Avocado and banana

Lazy Breakfast Mix-and-Match Recipe
This is good match too


My usual choices are
- 2 tablespoons of instant oats + granolas
- half cup of low-fat milk/ formula milk
- 1 banana/ half cup of apple (I will definitely go for berries if I able to get them with good price)
- 3 tablespoons of chia seeds + cashew nuts + black sesame powders
- 1 tablespoon of raisin (or 1-3 dates)

Love it! Never get bored of them.

It's the best thing ever for a person who is always lazy to go out for breakfast, for people who stay alone and don't really enjoy eating alone outside, for morning or tea-time snack to be brought over to the office, or for nomad who always travel to places where it's hard to find food.

I read this article "Why Eating Alone May Be Bad for You" from TIMEIt’s possible to draw a causal link between eating alone and increase in weight, right?
