3 Quick Ideas For Breakfast-In-A-Jars

Why opt for the standard sandwich when you can pack a more nutritious breakfast in a single jar? Easy to put together and portable for a breakfast on-the-go, having your breakfast stored in a jar opens your nutrition options to a whole new level. Here are three basic ideas to get you started – thereafter, you can swap ingredients out with different fruits and nuts to get different breakfasts each time.

Pomegranate & Mango Overnight Oats


Overnight oats are an easy way to get your fibre in without the hassle of cooking oatmeal on a stove. You’ll want to avoid eating instant oatmeal as an alternative as these options often have added ingredients like caramel colour or guar gum in them.

Simply stir in uncooked, organic baby oats into your choice of yogurt and leave it to sit in your jar overnight. They’ll absorb some of the yogurt and turn into a delightful oaty mix by morning. Layer it with your preferred fruits and top with a handful of crunchy granola, and you’re good to go!

Blueberry & Raspberry Chia Seed Pudding


Most of us who are aware of chia seeds and their benefits, often sprinkle them on top of our smoothies, juices, or mix them in water. Why not make a more filling version of it – a chia seed pudding!

All of it really requires soaking your chia seeds in a smoothie or yogurt mix overnight. The seeds will absorb the water content of your smoothie or yogurt to turn into a pudding-like texture overnight. The more watery your mix is, the more your chia seeds will absorb to “grow” into larger chia seed jellies! Eat it with your favourite granola and berries for a variety of textures.

Peach, Mandarin & Banana Smoothie


Breakfasts in jars can also come in the form of quick smoothies! If you’re a fan of bananas, frozen bananas are a natural sweetener and add a creamy texture to any smoothie. Alternatively, use greek yogurt to thicken up your morning smoothie, and honey as a natural sweetener.
