Avocadoes are one of the speediest breakfast choices. And they’re delicious, nutritious and satisfying. Which means more time to Hussle a workout.
Cooking oil adds flavour and texture. It also stops food sticking to the pan. Which do you chose, sunflower, olive, walnut? Find the right oil for the job.
You Hussle so you can live your best life. Grab-and-go food is all very easy and quick, but choose food that fills you up. And food that keeps your body healthy.

These non-alcoholic mocktails have less sugar than boozy cocktails, so fill your glass with irresistible fruits, bold herbs, sparkling water and crushed ice.
Who cares about calories nowadays? But calories really DO count. It's not rocket science. Just use more calories than you eat. And you will lose weight.
Carbs get a bad rap. But we need carbs to fuel our muscles and brains. Like most things carbs can be good and bad. Here’s our Hussle hints on the carbs to curb

Takeaways are full of calories, high on cost, plastic and unknown ingredients. Make a healthy takeaway at home instead. Not much time? Tiny kitchen? No problem.
Apple Cider Vinegar has been used for thousands of years as a remedy for random problems. Is it true it can it help with weight loss, digestion and blood sugar?
Fancy a healthy Easter egg? Yes, you can enjoy your chocolate eggs without devouring hundreds of calories and a load of sugar. Enjoy these guilt free Easter eggs!
I make my own chips, although call them potato wedges. With just a spoonful of oil they're definitely healthy - and I defy anyone to tell me otherwise!
sweet potato wedges are the absolute food of the gods - although the best ones I've had were in New Zealand so not very accessible!
Dark chocolate and a coffee with cream is my evening treat. Not much sugar but feels very indulgent!
But some mueslis are very sugary too, so Weetabix with a banana is actually a better bet.
I think there are cereals and cereals. Cornflakes or those terrible breakfast bars do indeed leave me hungry again in an hour. Porridge or a muesli with fruit keep me happy all morning.
berries must be ok, they are in the picture!!! We have a patch of waste ground near us and the blackberries are really good this year. Fortunately they keep well in the fridge so I can ration them.
I love my post-work, pre-dinner workouts and tend to have a banana and a couple of oatcakes and peanut butter just before 4pm which gives me enough energy to workout and last until dinner
Hummus all the way for me, just add any veg and you have a quick healthy snack
If you can workout around 12pm, then eat at 1, that works very well I find
this is useful as we all try to juggle doing too much - and I just spotted the link to some office-friendly low-faff snacks. Inspiration!
Morning workout 'fasted' is always the way for me. Nothing beats the feeling of tucking into a decent breakfast when you've already done the hard work.
one of my favourite snacks is tinned mackerel in spicy tomato sauce with oatcakes - quick, cheap and healthy.
Curious how people centuries ago made smoothies if they didn't have blenders.....
Amber, I don't think eggs for breakfast every day is bad, so long as it's two eggs only and you don't have any other egg meals, e.g. omelette. I know people who have way more eggs than 14 a week and they are perfectly healthy.
The apple protein smoothie is delicious. But then so is anything with apple and cinnamon. no way would I just make 150ml though - mine are always supersize!
I really didn't know you could use raw carrots in a smoothie. Really? Would you need a super-powered blender to do this? If so, great, as I always have carrots in!
I am just glad I have found something to use up the masses of cooked beetroot I have got in the fridge. Sounds unusual, but I am going to give it a go.
I'm giggling at the warning about not spilling the beetroot shake. Quite right, though - it NEVER comes out!
nope, nothing down sink drains except washing up water, anything beyond a small amount of oil on the pan will clog our ancient infrastructure. If there is a lot left, wipe up with a kitchen towel or rag and bin it. Yes, landfill, but better than blocked drains.
the picture reminds of the last time I decided to ease hunger with a burger - hadn't had one from the usual vendors since student days. Gone in about four bites, loads of calories and didn't stick to the ribs at all. The definition of the wrong food!
I admit I am the same about skipping something to eat later. Mine is weird though - I skip afternoon biscuits so that I can enjoy them in the evening in front of TV. But I probably end up eating more then!
I've got a 'skip breakfast for cake later' in my office and I'm afraid she drives me nuts! Might send her the link to this article...
Eggs for breakfast definitely make me last longer than my old breakfast of weetabix, and less sugary too. But I don't think it's healthy to have every day? Correct me if I'm wrong!!
