Episode 50: Make Ahead Breakfast for Back-to-School
Being a fully functioning human at 6 am is hard. As much as we have the idea that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” drilled into our collective conscious, we just cannot deal with having to feed ourselves and our kids a healthy meal every morning from scratch. That’s why make ahead breakfasts are critical to eating well in the morning.
Sure, make ahead breakfasts will make your back-to-school season better, but there are many seasons of parenting where a prepped-and-ready or self-serve breakfast comes in handy all year long — and it might even mean you get to sleep in. This week we’re sharing our favorite recipes and secret strategies for better breakfast with less effort.
