Now that I’ve started working, I don’t have a ton of time for breakfast in the mornings. I hate feeling rushed because I know I’ll forget something. I look for ways to save time in my day, especially in the mornings, and one way I do that is to prepare things ahead of time, or the night before.
Breakfast is a priority in my morning routine. I try my best to never skip it, as it’s the most important meal of the day. Lately my breakfasts have included lots of eggs and oatmeal. I’ve tried overnight oats (fill a cup or jar with oats, milk, yogurt, etc. and let it sit overnight so it’s ready to eat in the morning), but it just wasn’t doing it for me. So I started looking for another way to prepare a healthier breakfast that’s fast and easy, but still relatively healthful. When I’m in a hurry, the first thing on my mind is usually, “get something in my belly,” not always, “will I hate myself later for eating this?” So the “healthful” part was key.
