  • In this video, I'll show you ten quick and healthy breakfast and lunch ideas for school or work

  • These recipes are perfect for days when you're running late and you want to have something nutritious to eat

  • and tasty on the go.

  • Hey Mom!

  • I'm good! I just got back from school and now I'm eating some lunch.

  • Oh... you know just some potatoes and bread and then some tomatoes and some cheese.

  • Yeah, pretty balanced! Oh mom, can you take me to the dance class I have it at 5.

  • Ok great! See you then. Bye

  • Mom? You know, never mind... I'm not going to the dance class today.

  • No, I feel really sick. I don't know, maybe the potatoes were rotten. I don't know...

  • Yeah, I'm just gonna rest. Ok. See you, bye!

  • I should really start eating healthier... Let's do this!

  • Hey loves! I'm super excited about today's video because it was requested a lot and I've

  • never filmed something like that before. I'm going to show you 10 healthy breakfast and

  • lunch ideas for back to school. These are all very easy and quick to make - you can

  • make them the night before and then in the morning you just grab breakfast and lunch

  • and you're good to go. I hope you guys are excited and let's get started.

  • Let's start with 5 delicious and healthy breakfast ideas! First we are making these delicious

  • oatmeal cookies. You need just two ingredients to make them: One cup of oats and 2 ripe bananas.

  • Peel and then mush the bananas with a fork until you get that runny consistency. Put

  • it into a bowl and add your oats. Mix it well with a spoon and you can totally finish here

  • or you can add some more ingredients for a fuller taste. I like to pop in some cinnamon.

  • You can mix in chocolate chips, nuts, raisins whatever you prefer. Take a parchment lined

  • baking tray and place on the mixture in little piles like this. I am going to flatten the

  • top with a spoon, to make them look more like cookies. I like to decorate mine with some

  • dried blueberries and cranberries. You could have just mixed this into the cookie mixture,

  • but I like how the cookies look with the dried fruit on top. Put your cookies in the oven

  • at 350 Fahrenheit for 15 minutes. Here they are all done, smelling delicious! Put them

  • in an air tight container and you have a great breakfast on the go ready. You can make these

  • on the weekend and they will last you for the entire week. When you are running late

  • for school you can just grab a couple of cookies and you're out the door. A perfect way to

  • get a nutritious and super tasty breakfast on the go. I also love how you can tailor

  • this recipe by mixing in the ingredients you like.

  • Another great breakfast to go idea is a yogurt and fruit in a cone! Take an ice cream cone

  • and ignore me pretending to be a unicorn. Put some fruit in the cone like that, I have

  • some blueberries, which you guys know I am obsessed with. Take a big spoon of yogurt.

  • I like using Greek version because it's thicker and also richer in protein than the usual

  • one. Put it on the cone just like ice cream and then top it off with some more fruit.

  • I have blueberries and strawberries. Voila, a minute breakfast that you can eat on your

  • way to school. This breakfast is so yummy and it also looks adorable, right? I know

  • that the cone contains sugar but you get your protein from yogurt and benefits from fruit

  • so from time to time I think this is a great breakfast or a snack to have. Cheers! Cheers

  • with a blueberry shot...

  • If you like fruit as much as I do then you will love the next idea which is a fruit salad

  • in a jar. Basically you just want to cut small pieces of different fruits of your choice

  • and put those in the jar. Today I found in the fridge some pineapple,

  • which is one of my favorite fruits and is also a great source of vitamins C and B. Then

  • I also have some strawberries, because who doesn't love strawberries right. Here I have

  • some clementines too. And no I don't know how to juggle. To me clementines are such

  • a christmassy food. The markets are full of this yummy fruit in November and December.

  • In the jar I first popped some red currants, pineapple, then blueberries, strawberries

  • and clementines. There you go - an easy and nutritious breakfast for school or work! You

  • can make this fruit salad the evening before and in the morning you have a delicious breakfast

  • waiting for you.

  • This next one is probably my favorite breakfast in the bunchdelicious granola bars with

  • nuts, fruit and chocolate chips! You need chopped cashews, pumpkin seeds, chopped almonds,

  • cranberries, puffed rice, dark chocolate chunks, flax seeds and a pinch of salt. Give it a

  • little mix and then in a separate bowl combine one table spoon of almond or peanut butter

  • and a quarter of a cup of rice syrup. Stir those two together until you have a nice even

  • mixture and then pour it into the bowl with nuts and seeds. Mix well until all the ingredients

  • are nicely incorporated, like that. Put the mixture on a smaller parchment lined baking

  • sheet. Flat it down really well to assure there are no free spaces in the mix. Pop it

  • in the oven and bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes. You can cut your bars

  • when the mixture is still hot or you can wait for them to cool down. These granola bars

  • are seriously delicious! You can store them in an air tight container so they remain fresh

  • and crispy. Or you can put your bar in a little plastic bag and you can have it as a snack

  • during the day. The granola bars that you buy in a shop are usually packed with sugar

  • and other unhealthy stuff. With this homemade bars you know what you put in and you can

  • always adjust the recipe to your liking!

  • When you have more time before your classes start you can make this breakfast, which is

  • just as yummy as it is pretty to look at! For the pepper eggs, first cut two slices

  • of pepper, which should be about half an inch thick. Place them in a frying pan and beat

  • one egg into each pepper ring. See how cool this looks already!? Add a pinch of salt or

  • any other seasoning of your choice. While the eggs are cooking I am going to make some

  • fruit kebabs, because I want this breakfast to be extra picture worthy! Take the fruits

  • of your choice and cut them into pieces. Here I have some strawberries, a kiwi, a banana

  • and blueberries. If you love blueberries, Norway is definitely the place to live. If

  • you follow me on Instagram you know that. I've been picking so much blueberries this

  • year, they were literally everywhere! Here you go, how adorable are these and of course

  • tasty and healthy too! I love them. When the eggs are done, carefully put them on a plate.

  • And as a side we have our pretty fruit kebabs. This breakfast is just delicious, nutritious

  • and totally Instagram worthy. I mean come on, don't deny it, I know you do it to. We're

  • all guilty here. No but seriously, I think this is a great breakfast for when you have

  • a bit more time and you want to eat something healthy, but also have fun preparing it. Breakfast

  • for champs for sure!

  • Now let's move on to the lunch portion of this video! First we are making some healthy

  • egg muffins with veggies. Beat three eggs into a mixing bowl. Take your hand mixer and

  • whisk the eggs. While doing that add about a deciliter of milk and one or two table spoons

  • of flour. I am using almond milk and buckwheat flour, but any milk and flour will do. Pour

  • the mixture into the muffin form. Since I have the silicone form I don't have to use

  • the paper muffin cups. But go ahead and use those if you have them. Leave the muffins

  • aside for a minute and cut the veggies of your choice into small pieces. I have some

  • pepper, tomato and a zucchini. You can also put in mushrooms, carrots, spinach or any

  • other vegetables of your choice. Throw the veggie pieces into the muffin mixtureas

  • much or as little as you like. I like to be quite generous with vegetables so I am putting

  • in loads of them. Put the muffins in the oven and bake at about 320 degrees Fahrenheit for

  • 20 minutes. These muffins are so yummy and healthy and you can have them hot or cold.

  • Make them the day before and then take them to school or work. I added some grapes, goji

  • berries and almonds to my lunch box as well. The egg muffins are also nice as a little

  • snack at home. In the fridge they will last you up to 3 to 4 days. A tasty and nutritious

  • lunch for school.

  • A great lunch idea on the go is a salad in a jar. The options here are endless so use

  • whatever salad you like or happen to have in the fridge. I'm going to use some cherry

  • tomatoesthese are so sweet and good. I also like to add a lot of peppers, I have

  • a yellow and an orange one. I will also add some cucumber to my salad. Finally I am cutting

  • some feta cheese cubes and now it's time to throw all of that goodness into a jar! You

  • can make this salad the day before school and then just grab it in the morning. Especially

  • if you are not using leafy greens in your salad like me. Drizzle with a bit of olive

  • oil and a splash of lemon juice for the dressing. You can throw this salad in your school bag

  • and have it ready for when your tummy gets hungry. I eat salad for lunch almost every

  • day and I love how it fills you up but it is also a light meal. Heavy lunches sometimes

  • make me feel tired and without energy for the rest of the day. A nice salad like this

  • will instead make you feel refreshed and full of energy.

  • Next we're making this delicious spelt bread sandwich! I am going to show you how I make

  • the most tasty and quick bread from scratch. Put five hundred grams of spelt flour into

  • a bowl. I am using a mix of finely and coarsely ground flour. Add a tablespoon of baking soda,

  • a teaspoon of sugar, I am using coconut sugar, a pinch of salt, two table spoons of olive

  • oil, juice of half a lemon and 5,5 deciliters of water. Mix this thoroughly until all the

  • ingredients are evenly combined. Pour the mixture into a bread form. Sprinkle with some

  • sunflower seeds and put it in the oven. Bake for an hour at 320 degrees Fahrenheit. This

  • bread only takes 10 minutes of your time and is just so much healthier than the ones you

  • buy in a supermarket, which normally have too much salt added plus all the preservatives

  • and other nasty stuff. Since I learned this recipe from my boyfriend's mom almost a year

  • ago, I never bought bread again, trust me. I always bake it myself. Cut two slices of

  • bread and make yourself a nice tasty sandwich. I like to spread some butter on one piece

  • and then add some lettuce, turkey slices, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese plus pickles

  • which are like my favorite thing in the whole world. And that's it, a delicious spelt bread

  • sandwich. Into my lunch box I also added some red currants and blueberries. A super tasty

  • lunch for school or work. Yum yum. And here you have an example of an epic fail while

  • filming. Anyway this was my healthier twist on a sandwich that you really need to try!

  • Now let's make a little lunchable or tapas inspired lunch box. First I am going to show

  • you how to make these yummy ham rolls. Take some ham or turkey slices and spread on some

  • brie cheese. Put on a few rocket leaves. Roll the ham like this and secure it with a toothpick.

  • These rolls are so tasty, and perfect for a snack, lunch or even a party. You can make

  • them in advance and store them in a fridge in an air tight container. In my lunch box

  • I am putting a cracker, three turkey rolls and then I also decided to add some veggies.

  • So here I am cutting carrots into thin sticks. Do the same with cucumbers and put all of

  • these vitamins into a lunch box. We're not finished yethere are some dried apricots

  • and cashew nuts. My mouth water while I am just looking at all of this goodness. This

  • lunch is great for on the go as it contains so many little snacks that you can have during

  • the day when you get a bit hungry. You can also add some cherry tomatoes, cheese sticks

  • or whatever you prefer. If you make yourself a nice lunch box filled with healthy stuff

  • that you actually love, you definitely won't be craving a pica or chocolate bars from the

  • vending machine.

  • Lastly we are making a super tasty tuna wrap, which is just so good, trust me. What you

  • need is some cheese, cherry tomatoes, olives and pickles all cut into small pieces, plus

  • some canned tuna, mayonnaise and a tortilla. Put everything into a bowl.. except the tortilla

  • obviously and mix well. If you want to make this healthier you can use the whole wheat

  • tortilla and you can skip the mayo, but I think this combination is just so good so

  • I am totally having it. No regrets. Put some mixture in the center of tortilla and wrap

  • it up. You can cut it in half if you want and see how tasty this looks. In the box I

  • am also adding some strawberries and two pieces of dark chocolate for the desert. Again, you

  • can prepare this lunch in advance so in the morning you just grab your lunch box and you

  • are good to go. Another little idea - make this tuna mixture and instead of putting it

  • in the tortilla use it as a topping for pasta. You get the most delicious pasta salad ever,

  • and if you want a bit healthier version try using spelt pasta instead of the usual wheat
