Do you have hectic mornings? How about hitting the snooze button too many times?
We all have done it.
What if breakfast was already made for you?
Having breakfast already made ahead saves so much time in the mornings. Set ahead a little time on Saturday or Sunday to make a healthy breakfast on the go for the week. After breakfast is finished portion it out and freeze or refrigerate. Then you are setting up yourself for success making healthy choices first thing in the morning.
Healthy Breakfast On The Go Recipes
Everyone has different goals when it comes to health. I separated out healthy breakfast on the go options based on common goals. Some people choose to eat more grains while others are for more protein packed Keto types diets. Both are fine based on your personal goals. Trust me we have tried everything from Keto now trying Mediterranean. So far they have not come up with a Southern Fried diet where you can lose weight, so this makes it hard for us to find the right one.
Muffins are my favorite on the go breakfast option. Usually muffins involve some sort of fruit and grain combo to give you that long lasting fullness and energy to get you through to lunch. These are some hearty muffin options you can make and have ready to eat throughout the week. This makes breakfast so easy on school mornings.

Tips to Get Started Eating Healthy
Make sure you have something you can grab if you run out of time in the morning. Planning and being prepared not only helps making healthy choices easier, but makes sticking to your goals easier. Making an entire weeks of breakfasts all at once saves a ton of time. It is like block scheduling, but for food prep for the week. Most of these do not take more than an hour to make. Some it is just a few minutes of prep then let the oven do the cooking.
