Here are some tips for busy individuals out there:
1.Chill your oatmeal
Oatmeal doesn’t have to be served warm. Cook, then chill individual portions and stash them in the fridge in small containers you can grab, along with a spoon, on your way out the door. Just mix a protein powder (like peas, hemp, or organic whey) into rolled oats, add hot water, stir, fold in fresh fruit, cinnamon, and nuts, and chill.
2.Hard boil it
For a make-ahead option, prep hard boiled organic eggs on a Sunday for the upcoming week. While you are making dinner, take a few extra minutes to whip up a simple egg salad for breakfast the next morning.
3.Have dinner for breakfast
It may seem odd to chow down on a garden salad topped with lentils or salmon at 8 am, but who says breakfast meals have to look different than lunch or dinner?
4.Pre-whip your smoothie
Blend up a smoothie just before bed, stash it in a sealed to-go jug in the fridge, grab it on your way out the door, and shake it up before sipping.
5.Make a meal out of snack foods
It’s perfectly okay to cobble together a breakfast from an assortment of snack foods, including veggies with hummus and whole grain crackers, or trail mix made from nuts or seeds, unsweetened preservative-free dried fruit, and a whole grain cereal you can eat with your hands.
