I am NOT a morning person; I AM a snooze button queen. Needless to say, getting to work for 8AM is always a struggle. This sometimes makes it hard to eat a healthy breakfast. It would be much easier to run through a fast food drive through line, but, not ideal for healthy living. With all the travel I do, I have made it a priority to eat healthy as much as possible. My recent post on meal prepping as you go is just one of the things I have adopted over the years to help speed up my morning routine.
Making a menu and grocery shopping for the week are things I like to do but admittedly not something I am very good at keeping up with. To help combat my lack of planning, I tend to keep certain staple foods on hand beyond the normal bread and milk. I also use an APP on my iPhone called Meal Board for my grocery list. Anytime I run out of one of my ‘staple’ items, I enter it in the APP. It was hard for me to go paperless when it came to my grocery list, but now that I have, I love it. Below is a list of pantry items I tend to keep on hand, plus a few of my go to breakfast meals. With just a little prep, these breakfasts pull together in no time. No excuse not to start my day off right! Like what your reading? Sign up here for weekly blog post updates; unsubscribe anytime.
