Last Updated

1. Banana Shake

When you’re in a hurry – drink. By “drink”, I mean drink your calories, not vodka. I learned this trick during my short bodybuilding journey. No, I don’t have abs (yet), but who knows?

You’ll need:

  • Four bananas
  • 500 ml milk
  • Sugar
  • 10-15 almonds
  • 10-15 raisins
  • Peanut butter
  • 3-4 ice cubes

How to do it:

Crush the almonds in the grinder. Cut the bananas into pieces and throw them in. Pour a little milk (about 100 ml or so). Run the blender for a while.


Pour the rest of the milk and sugar and rerun the grinder for about 30 seconds. Also, throw in 3-4 ice cubes

The banana shake is ready. Use raisins and one spoonful of peanut butter as the topping.


2. Oatmeal

You need to rush for your English class – early in the morning – and you don’t want to disturb your mom for breakfast. This oatmeal recipe is just perfect for such times. And you know the best part? You can prepare it the night itself.

Problem solved.

You’ll need:

  • 50 grams dry oats
  • 50-100 grams of jaggery (gud)
  • 5-10 almonds
  • 5-10 raisins
  • 300 ml milk
  • One banana

How to do it:

Take a stainless steel or glass bowl. Pour some milk. Add dry oats. Throw in the almonds and the raisins. Also, add sugar or jaggery. Cut the banana into pieces, and add that too. Keep it in the refrigerator.

That’s it.

Next morning – stir it and eat.

3. Sattu

 You’ll need:

  • 200 grams of Sattu (Gram (chana) Sattu)
  • 100 grams jaggery

How to do it:

Take about 300 ml of water in a glass. Throw in the jaggery. Keep the glass aside in the refrigerator.

Next morning: Pour the jaggery water into the bowl and add Sattu in the water. Mix it up with the help of a spoon until it becomes a thick paste.

Enjoy with a glass of fresh water.

4. Bread mix

You’ll need:

  • 3-4 slices of bread
  • 300 ml warm milk
  • Sugar
  • Two spoonfuls of “desi ghee” (clarified butter)
  • A steel or glass bowl

How to do it:

Break the bread slices into small pieces in the pan.

Now, pour the milk and add sugar. Keep it aside for about 5 minutes. Add desi ghee and stir it.

5. Chana mix

 You’ll need:

  • A handful of raw grams
  • Water
  • One small onion
  • One green chilli
  • Salt (preferably black) or chat masala

How to do it:

Soak the grams overnight.

Next morning:

Cut the onion and the green chilli into small pieces.  Add them to the grams. Add some black salt or chaat masala, and also, a little lemon juice.

This breakfast recipe is quick to prepare but may take a little longer to eat because you’re supposed to chew properly.

Running late?

No problem.

Transfer the leftovers to your tiffin. You can enjoy the rest of it travelling.
