Don’t skip the most important meal of the day—we have tips!


Busy week ahead? Start every morning right by chowing down on a tasty, good-for-you breakfast. Skipping the day’s most important meal means that you’re skipping out on getting in a boost of energy to help you power through the day. Besides, life is too short—a few minutes of meal time wouldn’t hurt!


Here are a few tips to making make-ahead breakfasts that are fuss-free and tasty.



1 Your freezer is your BFF.


Sling out those zip-top baggies and place a cup of chopped fresh fruit in them—mangoes, watermelon, bananas, and anything else you want. Come morning time, throw them into your blender, along with a handful of fresh greens and chia seeds, and blitz away! You can place it in a canteen and drink breakfast on-the-go.


The secret to have more greens in your diet: blend them into a smoothie that tastes like a fruit smoothie or milkshake.



2 Make eggs your go-to.


Eggs are extremely easy to prep and packed with nutrients! Scramble some in a bowl and mix in chopped vegetables. Pour them into a greased muffin pan and bake for 15 minutes. Pack them up and reheat them in the morning!


If your mornings are always rushed, then this is perfect. Prep this in the evening, mix and bake in the morning.


3 Soak grains and seeds overnight.



Overnight oats and chia puddings are complete life-savers! All you have to do is spend 5 minutes mixing all the ingredients together at night, then leave them to set overnight in the refrigerator. Try out these recipes!
