We often are told over and over, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but when it comes down to everyday life, many people actually skip breakfast entirely. Having enough time to eat, let alone cook, is often a factor when it comes to having breakfast in the morning. But we must make the time for this very important meal. How can we concentrate in the morning, and be our best selves, when we have no food to give us energy? So what should we do? We should make our breakfast in the microwave!
Some mornings you may not feel like just having cold cereal, or you have run out of fruit to make yourself a smoothie, this is where microwave breakfast recipes really come in handy. It pays to always have something in your fridge or in your pantry, you can just throw in the microwave when you are in a rush. It is certainly better than not eating at all, as a satisfying breakfast really goes a long way to making you feel good and enjoy your day.
Microwave Breakfast Recipes
Microwave breakfast recipes are usually super easy to make, you can even prepare the meal the night before if you prefer, pop it in a covered bowl in the fridge and simply heat it up in the microwave in the morning. Cooking in the microwave also uses less dishes, which is a big plus for me, as I don’t like coming home to a sink full of dirty dishes. It’s quick, it’s easy, and sometimes it is really nice to enjoy a nice and hot cooked breakfast.

So what breakfast can you make in the microwave?
Oats are what I like to call the “perfect breakfast”. They are incredibly satisfying, you never have to fear you will be hungry soon afterwards, after eating oatmeal. They are also incredibly healthy. Latest research shows that grains like oats are full of the nutrients and energy we need in our bodies, without any of the bad stuff. As long as you don’t pile cream or yogurt on top, or add fat to it in other ways, you should be good. Stick to adding fruits (berries work great!) and spices like cinnamon, don’t go overboard with things like nuts, and try cooking them in water or a low fat milk like skim, soy or almond.
