Perhaps you’ve Googled about “breakfast ideas,” “healthy easy breakfast,” “cheap and healthy breakfast” and you will end up in some US blog articles.

The prices are ridiculously high in Malaysia! 

Who said you should skip breakfast? Here are some easy-to-do meals on the go so you don’t have an excuse to not eat breakfast.

1. Overnight Oatmeals

Most of you probably have tried this but turned down once saw the expensive berries. Now, try replacing the berries with oranges, bananas, apples and/or pears that can be easily purchased at pasar or supermarket sales. Replace the almond milk with fresh orange juice or full cream milk.
- Time: Prepare this the night before or during weekend and store in the freezer.
- Tips: Add honey to make it sweet in a healthier way.


2. Salad

Wash the ingredients, tear the lettuce/cabbage, cut the tomatoes/green pepper/zucchini, steam some chicken breasts, mix everything together with mayo (or other types of dressing you like). Add some salt and pepper. Tada~ Add boiled eggs if you want to feel full. 
- Time: Preferably the night before and eat it immediately after mix.
- Tips: Put the tomatoes, green pepper, zucchini cubes in a container. Add lettuce/cabbage, mayo, salt, and pepper right before you want to eat. Close the lid and shake the container instead of stirring it~


3. Pumpkin / Potato Soup

Cut pumpkin / potato and some onions, add water, and cook with mushroom soup powder found in supermarkets.
- Time: This can be your supper, and leave them on pot. Reheat in the morning if you want to have it warm. Or you can leave it to cook in a slow cooker and switch to “low” before you sleep. It should be ready when you wake up.
- Tips: Remember to close the lid nicely so flies can’t lay eggs on your food.


4. Choco-everything

Melt the chocolates, pour on Corn Flakes, put into the freezer. This is seriously a no-brainer.
- Time: Anytime you feel like doing. Can keep in the freezer for a long time (but better eat it fresh if you are making Choco-fruits).
- Tips: Replace the Corn Flakes with anything crispy, even apple slice!


5. No Bake Energy Bites (not recommend to eat frequently)

Nutella + peanut butter + chocolate chips + rolled oats + crispy cereal + honey + coconut oil. Mix everything together according to your preference. Shape it, put into the freezer. Make in bulk so that you can have it anytime in the week. Word of caution: (not recommend to eat frequently because the sugar contained in Nutella, peanut butter, and chocolate chips might exceed your daily need.)
- Time: During the weekend. It can store up to 5 days in the freezer.
- Tips: Shape it into bite size.


6. No Bake Chocolate Eclair

- Tips: Use ice cream to replace the cream or add fruit slices in between.
