Even if you don’t subscribe to the notion that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, most will at least accept it’s pretty damn important – especially when their stomach starts growling aggressively from hunger during that mid-morning catch-up with the boss. Unfortunately it’s also a meal that’s hard to give the attention it deserves, because spending a lot of time making breakfast generally means either cutting into your sleep, or being late for work which, funnily enough, your boss wants a catch-up about.
All of which makes these five quick, easy and tasty recipes from Instagram’s finest no-fuss foodie The Food Grinder an absolute godsend. Each contains a hefty portion of protein so they’re ideal fodder for a post-workout meal – if you’re up early enough to fit in a workout before breakfast, that is.
Salmon And Asparagus Monster Fried Egg
One adult & one teeny weeny Salmon & Asparagus Monster fried egg %uD83E%uDD24%uD83C%uDF73 #nofussfood %uD83C%uDF0D ————————– 1. Asparagus 2. Salmon fillets chopped 3. Separate out two yolks 4. Pour the rest over the mixture with some feta 5. Under the grill for the top (make sure teeny weeny yolk is hard) #nofussbabyfood #5ingredients #babyweaning #babyledweaning #leanin15 #eggs
The upsides of this delicious breakfast are obvious. Salmon provides protein and omega 3 fatty acids, asparagus is loaded with vitamins and minerals, and eggs is eggs. The downside is equally clear – you’ll never want a normal fried egg again.

Homemade Double Egg And Bacon Muffin
Happy Mcsunday Mcmorning %uD83D%uDE00 Homemade Double Egg & Bacon McMuffin %uD83C%uDF73%uD83E%uDD24%uD83C%uDF54 #nofussfood %uD83C%uDF0D ——————– 1. Toasted Muffin 2. Two bacon in a pan 3. Two eggs in a round shape cooked through with a lid on 4. Low fat cheese slice #thefoodgrinder
It’s not a particularly healthy breakfast, but it is healthier than getting a McMuffin from your local Golden Arches, and going home-made is more satisfying to boot.

Healthy No-Fuss Fry-Up
Much needed this morning %uD83D%uDE2C%uD83C%uDF73%uD83C%uDF74 #nofussfood %uD83C%uDF0D ———————- 1. Mushroom 2. Spinach 3. Tomato 4. Halloumi 5. Egg %uD83E%uDD24 #thefoodgrinder #breakfast
Swap out the bacon and sausage for halloumi and spinach and the traditional fry-up takes on a new, somewhat healthier look. And halloumi is the best breakfast food anyway.
