You probably heard you should eat balanced meals when you want to build your muscle. It’s pretty easy to prepare a balanced lunch or dinner with “real” food. But when it comes to a balanced breakfast, it’s more challenging.
Here’s one simple balanced breakfast idea for bodybuilders you can prepare in just 20 minutes.
Balanced Breakfast Ingredients
- 2 Chicken Eggs
- ½ Cup Of Quaker Quick Oats Dry Cereals
- 1 Glass 1.5% Fat Milk
An ideal meal should have:
- 25 – 30% Protein
- 55 – 60% Carbohydrates
- 15 – 20% Fat
As you can see with this breakfast you are getting just a little bit below the recommended 25% of proteins, also a bit less than the recommended 55% of carbs, and a little more than the recommended 20% of fat. You will notice it’s pretty hard to keep inside the recommended zone with every meal. But, you can try to get as close as possible.
How To Make A Balanced Breakfast
This is a very easy-to-make recipe that can be used for breakfast or dinner. When I first tried it I used it as a breakfast. Now I’m mostly preparing it for dinner.
Take two eggs and place them in a small pot. Fill the pot with water. Water should fully cover the eggs. Turn on the ring on your stove, so the water starts to warm up.
After around 10 – 15 minutes warm up a glass of milk and pour it into a cup. Use semi-skimmed milk to limit the amount of fat in this meal. You can also go with even lower-fat milk to reduce the fat even further.
Add 1/2 a cup of Quaker Quick Oats to your milk.
After around 15 minutes eggs are boiled. Cool them down under running cold water. Peel the eggshell. Your breakfast is ready to be served.
