It’s a well-known fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Starting your day off with a good meal (or at least a nutritious snack) can give you the fuel you need to get through the entire day. However, making breakfast takes effort – effort you may not feel you have in the early hours of the morning before you drag yourself to school or work.
These ideas from The Kitchn could help you out if you’re one of those people who hates preparing or has no time to prepare breakfast in the morning. Just make these breakfast foods ahead of time so they’re just ready to grab and go:
- Fruit on the Bottom Yogurt Cups: with the help of a cheap jar, you can layer yogurt with jam, nuts, granola, seeds, nut butter or fruit. Make a bunch of these ahead of time and grab them on your way out the door in the morning.
- Oatmeal in Jars: this idea utilizes jars as well. The recipe shows you how to make nutty steel cut oats ahead of time. All you have to do is microwave the jar in the morning for a quick and healthy breakfast.
- Peanut Butter and Honey Granola: get your protein in the morning with this recipe. Make a bunch so that you have plenty to last you the week.
- Crustless Mini-Quiches: it’s easy to make a whole batch of these with the help of a muffin tin or two. You can also freeze them if you feel like making a big batch one day.
