Welcome to the first of our cheap eats series!

When studying, you need to keep your energy up, both mentally and physically. As it turns out, one of the best ways to do this (outside of sleeping well), is to eat good food, regularly. If you often don’t have much time or money to put towards a great meal, don’t worry, you may just need a few tips and recipes to get started.

Let’s start with an obvious one, “the most important meal of the day”, breakfast. Here are some of our favourite cheap breakfast recipes for students that can be whipped up in no time.

Cheap Breakfast Recipes

Sweet-tooths and rabid donut fans will love this take on Banana Bread, it’s so easy to do. It simply involves baking your own donuts, with whole-wheat flour, coconut oil, walnuts and ripe bananas. You can also freeze them for future breakfasts, saving you even more time.

Prefer a muffin? Try these Zucchini Muffins for an extra burst of goodness without the strong flavours, and you can also warm them up for an afternoon energy boost.

Luckily, not every option needs to be baked to perfection. For those who like a hearty breakfast try this Spinach Omelette Wrap. It has eggs, ham, cheese and greens with a little zing. You make the omelette first and then place it in the wrap for an on-the-run meal. If you are worried about it falling apart, just wrap the end with some alfoil to keep it together.

We hope these cheap breakfast recipes give you healthy ideas for you to try, and manage your time (and hunger) while studying. Stay tuned for lunch and dinner suggestions!
