Breakfast Meal Prep Ideas for a Busy Morning

by Desa Wells

Since moving up to corporate America, waking up at 6:00 am and getting home at 5:30 pm, I’ve realized what my mom means by, “I don’t have time.” I’ve especially noticed that I don’t have time to spend making my usual to-the-nines breakfast every morning. As I’m sure I’m not the only one with this problem – and since I believe a healthy breakfast is the best start to a productive work day – here are a few recipes to experiment with on Sunday so you can grab breakfast before you sprint out the door on Monday through Friday.

Breakfast Sandwiches

These portable breakfast treats are packed with healthy carbs, fiber and protein to hold you until lunch and are totally customizable. A few ingredients you might want to add: mushrooms, spinach, turkey sausage, onions, black beans, carrots, tomato and sprouts. The list certainly doesn’t stop there so feel free to experiment.

Veggie Breakfast Burrito

Attention busy vegan friends: we have the breakfast burrito for you! Of course, you don’t have to swear off animal products to enjoy this savory meal. Although these burritos will require a little prep work on the weekend, you won’t regret it come Monday morning. This protein-packed breakfast is also rich in vitamins and minerals to get you going and keep you running.  Feel free to hold the salt, make your own salsa, or substitute for another type of bean.
Don’t forget to grab some fruit to go with your delicious breakfast. This is also a perfect way to bond with children and introduce them to healthy cooking/meal planning at the same time. The benefits are endless!
