Think about your mornings: How much do you have to get done before you get out the door for the day? If you work, you have to prep yourself and possibly prep lunch also. If you have kids, you have to help them get dressed and pack up for the day, as well as get their lunches ready. You might also try to squeeze in a workout or some clean-up duties, too—so that you don’t have to come home to a messy house.
What’s not mentioned in there? Breakfast, of course. And that’s too bad, because without fuel you’re no good to yourself, your family, or your work. But there’s an answer that involves just a little bit of prep and a little bit of work—make-ahead options for the first meal of the day. Those types of recipes offer flavor and nutrition—and they’re easy.
