You know how insanely busy mornings can be. It’s sometimes hard to strike a balance between handing the kids a box of cereal and passing the milk – sometimes to eat in a moving vehicle, right? – and preparing a wholesome, home-cooked breakfast to keep them going for a few hours.
I think we’d all like to do the latter, but who has time most days?
Enter this list of delicious, healthy, make-ahead breakfasts for busy mornings. I’ve compiled a list of breakfasts that you can prepare on a day where you have a little time, and that you can feel good about feeding your family even on the craziest schedule! Best of all, a lot of them can be eaten on the go if need be.
