Breakfast for Champions: 'Cups' & Rainbows for a happy morning munch

Until recently, Becky has been quite contented with her daily morning milk. Lately, she's been asking for a variety of breakfast. So I've been discovering some easy to prepare, yet healthy breakfasts to fulfill her increasing palatable tastebuds, such as Ham & Egg Cups and Rainbow Yoghurt.

Ham & Egg Cups


This is really simple and quick to whip up, and it makes use of a muffin tray in a different way, other than for making muffins or cupcakes. This recipe makes six cups.

What you'll need:

  • 6 ham slices (any kind will do. I used honey baked ham)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • Mushrooms, to your liking, diced into small cubes
  • Cheese, to your liking

What to do:

  • Spray your muffin tray with non-stick spray and preheat the oven to 200 degree Celcius.
  • Place one slice of ham in a muffin cup and press down so it creates a 'cup'.
  • Add mushrooms and cheese to the beaten eggs.
  • Add the egg mixture into your ham cup.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  • If you like, sprinkle some cheese on top after 10 minutes of baking.
  • Alternatively, you can crack an egg into your egg cup, without beating it.

Rainbow Yoghurt


Pair it with some yoghurt and fresh fruits! This is a healthy and colourful concoction that is not only delightful to the eyes, but yummy too. Any type of fruits can be used. You can even pre-cut fruits and freeze them, so that you can quickly make it any time of the day, not just for breakfast.

What you'll need:

  • Yoghurt (you can use frozen too)
  • Strawberries, diced
  • Blueberries, halved
  • Oranged, cubed
  • Apples, cubed
  • Cranberries or raisins, cut into tiny bits

What to do:
  • In a tall glass, layer the ingredients starting with yoghurt at the bottom.
  • Use yoghurt for the final layer.
  • Garnish with cranberries and raisins.
  • You can layer the fruits in any order - let your creativity fly!

A healthy breakfast for my champion Becky. What's yours?
