10 Healthy, Fast Breakfast Ideas for a Busy Morning
No time for breakfast? Think again!
The average person spends approx. 45 minutes cooking dinner, 25 minutes on lunch and less than 10 minutes prepping breakfast. Mom always said breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why isn’t it getting your attention? Our theory? Sleep is high on your priority list so hopping out of bed to cook waffles or pancakes isn’t happening and that’s totally ok. The point of breakfast is to energize you, improve overall performance and deliver vitamins and nutrients to your body.
Everyone needs breakfast and it’s possible with these 10 healthy and quick recipes.
