Meal Prep Breakfasts

Make ahead breakfasts for stress free mornings

This weekend we’re losing an hour in the middle of the night for daylight savings time. Yes, it’s that time again: Spring Forward. That one hour is the start to a domino effect of chaos. Beginning with grouchy sleep deprivation, and dealing with the cherry on top: spending 24 hours unsure of what time it is, and wondering why you’re hungry when it’s not lunch time. Then it’s magnified by everyone in your circle dealing with the same mess of confusion.

Anything I can do to stop those dominoes from falling as early as possible for myself, my husband and my teens is top priority right now. That means planning some easy breakfasts so that first sleepy hour on Sunday morning doesn’t feel like such a hard hit. And will maybe allow me to sleep just a little longer!

Clean Eating Breakfast Prep

Of course, we could always just open a box of processed cereal and move on with our day. But breakfast is important and convenience doesn’t equal opening a box, which could very well lead to me opening a box for lunch and ordering takeout for dinner. Knowing that I’ve eaten a clean, healthy breakfast sets up me up for a day of being proud I’ve honored my health and helps me continue to be mindful of what I eat!
