Feel energised and ready for the most special day of your life with food to fuel your wedding day.
It’s your wedding morning, and your stomach’s in knots. With the big day finally here, a make-up artist on route and a photographer already snapping away, nerves are high. And the last thing you feel like doing is eating.
However, it’s never been more important that you have a healthy, hearty breakfast. You’ll need the fuel ahead of a day of celebration so that you can enjoy the incredible day you’ve spent so many moths putting together. You’ll also need to make sure that morning champagne doesn’t go to your head before the vows!
If food is the last thing you’re feeling like on your wedding morning, don’t worry: our Top Tips this Tuesday are here with the recommendations on what to eat and drink to fuel your energy levels and settle your stomach.
Fried, poached, scrambled…cooked to your taste, eggs are quick, easy and filling! Low in calories and packed with nutrients, they’ll keep you on your toes until the wedding breakfast, and are unlikely to upset or unnerve your stomach. Add a little wholemeal toast for a little extra healthy fuel.
Fancy putting on a spread for your bridesmaids? Add smoked salmon to your scrambled eggs for a protein-packed, delicious wedding morning breakfast.
Yes, it’s an old favourite, but there’s a reason for that! Healthy and filling, it’s quick, easy and fuelling for the day. Not only that, but, if you’re like us, you only need a little milk to soften your Weetabix – minimising the chances of spilling down your dress! Popping two pre-packed Weetabix into your overnight bag makes them a quick and easy option if you’re not getting ready at home but need assurance that your breakfast’s covered.
Can’t face the thought of anything rich? No idea how you’d find the time to cook something? Get a platter of gorgeous fruits together: ideal if you’re getting ready in your hotel, and you’d like something bringing to your room to feed the bridal party. Go for a selection of tasty berries, sliced mangoes and crunchy apples that you can snack on throughout the morning. And, of course, for a quick boost, nothing beats a banana! Liven up your fruit by smothering in peanut butter for added energy.
Nuts and Seeds
Feel like you need a boost, but can’t stomach a full meal? Worried how on earth you’re going to cram breakfast into your wedding day preparation schedule? Grab a selection of nuts and seeds. Perfect for snacking, you can keep topping up your fuel levels by snacking on a handful throughout the morning, as and when you need a boost. They’re also packed with protein and iron: essential for keeping your energy levels up.
