Healthy breakfast meal prep ideas that will save you money, reduce your stress and help you eat healthier! These meals can be prepared ahead and stored in either the fridge or freezer.
Just like prepping your lunch ahead, meal prepping your breakfast can make your mornings go so much smoother and feel less stressful. Simply reach into the fridge and grab your prepped breakfast!
I find that if I don’t make my breakfast ahead of time, I end up eating something boring like peanut butter toast, or full of sugar, like cereal, or worst case: hitting the drive-thru. All of these options abandon me tired and hangry by mid-morning, and more likely to grab something unhealthy to keep me going until lunch.
