Healthy Meal Prep Breakfast Ideas You Haven't Thought Of
Healthy Breakfast Meal Prep Ideas
Meal prepping your lunch is great and all, but prepping your breakfast in advance can mean sleeping in a little longer. And assuming you don’t want to put in a ton of kitchen time in the morning, it can mean the difference between settling for a bland grab-and-go option and having something you actually look forward to eating. In short, waking up to a premade breakfast will make your morning altogether more pleasant. Here are eight healthy breakfast meal prep ideas that'll make your life easier.
Freezer Friendly Bacon and Chive Egg Sandwiches
Freezer meals are more convenient than other meal prep breakfast ideas since they stay fresh way longer. Keep a batch of these sandwiches in your freezer for those days when you don't have time to buy your favorite BEC (or have a gnarly hangover). Within a few minutes, they're ready to eat straight out of the freezer.
