You have probably heard the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” at least once in your life. But, with most of us working from home, it might have become the norm for some to roll out of bed, with just enough time to spare to make a cup of coffee before your first meeting.
While it seems all too tempting to get as much sleep as we can, it’s just as crucial for us to get enough nutrients to fuel us for a busy morning.
So, for those who say they never have enough time to prepare breakfast, here’s a list of five easy breakfasts you can make in five minutes—and all are available at Nutrition Depot Philippines:
- Overnight Oats
Overnight oats might just be the winner when it comes to barely needing any preparation. All you’ll need to do the night before is to pour your milk or milk alternative into your oats, add your desired toppings, mix them all together, and pop it in the fridge. Your breakfast will be ready for you to grab and go the next morning!
When you can’t be bothered to think of flavors and toppings, Oats Overnight spoils you with a delicious variety that suits whatever you’re in the mood for.
Since we’re on the topic of oats, adding in a scoop or two of whey protein is a quick way to spice up your oatmeal. Not only can it help you reach your daily protein requirement, but it also adds flavor to your meal. Even with this additional step, preparing your breakfast will still take little to no time and effort.

3. Protein Pancakes
If you’re a fan of pancakes, then you’ll want to try adding whey protein to hit two birds with one stone: first, you’ll get a filling breakfast; and two, doing so helps you hit your protein count. Whether it’s just throwing in a scoop or two into your pancake mix or incorporating it in with some oats, bananas, eggs, and baking powder, you’re sure to get a tasty treat that doesn’t take much time to make.
Add some more flavor to your protein pancakes by drizzling them with calorie-free syrups from Walden Farms.
4. Peanut Butter
Whether on a slice of toast, as a dip for fruits or veggie sticks, or even mixed in with a drink, you can never go wrong with peanut butter. All you’ll need is something to scoop and spread it, and you’re all set; it’s quick, tasty, and goes with almost anything!
Hit your protein count with delicious protein peanut butter from Nuts ‘N More—they come in many different flavors to match whatever you want to eat them with.
5. Protein Shake
If you really can’t be bothered to eat so early in the morning, an equally filling and yummy alternative is your trusty protein shake. Just pour a scoop or two into your shaker bottle, add the recommended amount of water, shake, and drink away! Or, if you’re in need of a little caffeine kick, mixing your whey protein with coffee is a great option, too.
