Starting the day with a healthy breakfast is important. But, let’s face it, sometimes we’re just too busy to spend much time in the kitchen.
Or, if you’re like me, you try to get up earlier than everyone else to get some much-needed work done. But waiting until everyone else wakes up to have breakfast might not be a good thing (I like to eat within an hour of waking up). With everyone else still sleeping I try not to make too much noise in the kitchen.
That’s where make ahead healthy breakfast recipes come into play!
make ahead healthy breakfast recipes
All of the breakfast ideas, round-ups, and recipes below are easy to make ahead and store away for a quick morning breakfast for those times you’re rushing out the door or if you’re an early riser and want to get ahead of your busy schedule.
Best of all, they are healthy recipes! There aren’t any sugar or white-flour based ingredients. Instead, you’ll find alternative sweeteners, whole grains or grain-free recipes.
I do a mix of whole grains (whole and sprouted, if possible while keeping fat grams low) and a more ‘low-carb’ style (no grains but plenty of good proteins and fats). If you’d like to know more about mixing fuel sources (carbohydrates and fats), read Trim Healthy Mama.
