8 Healthy Make-Ahead Breakfast Recipes

You'll never skip breakfast again!



I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all done it: hit the snooze button one too many times, leaving hardly any time to look presentable, let alone eat a half-decent breakfast. This probably isn’t the wisest decision, considering how important breakfast is for your health—eating breakfast has been shown to promote weight-loss, lower cholesterol, and improve concentration—but if you’re anything like me, all the healthy benefits in the world are often no substitute for sleeping in just five more minutes. Can I get an amen?

I decided to solve this problem once and for all. With a little advance planning, you can make a healthy, yummy breakfast ahead of time, so all you have to do in the a.m. is chow down. Check out these eight delicious (and nutritious) breakfast recipes that can be made the night before for minimal prep time in the morning. Helllllo snooze-city!
