You’ve heard it before and I’ll definitely volunteer to say it again; breakfast is the most important meal of the day. There’s no way around it, if you’re skipping out on breakfast, you’re not doing your body any favors.
That first meal of the day is what’s going to jumpstart our energy levels and our metabolism; and will keep it functioning, healthy, and burning calories for the rest of the day. (Hello, who doesn’t want that?!)
If you’re anything like me, and your mornings can get pretty hectic, then do yourself a favor and take the time to meal prep. Setting aside time each week to cook through your basics for all of your meals will save you time in the long run – I promise. I typically try and set aside a couple hours every Sunday to get myself set up for success for the rest of the week.
One of my favorite breakfast recipes happens to take minimal effort, and will keep you on pace to get a healthy, and quick breakfast in all week (and these are even perfect when you need to grab something on the go!) Plus, they make a great snack when you’re feeling hungry throughout the day, and are great after a workout, too!
