5 Healthy Make-Ahead Breakfasts You’ll Actually Want To Eat

Start your day off right even if you're in a rush. 

You may have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but have you ever wondered why that is?

“Breakfast helps us to set up our circadian rhythm for the day and allows us to eat while our body is primed for digestion, which is earlier in the day,” says Tara Allen, RN, and certified health coach, nutritionist, and personal trainer. “Skipping breakfast can work for some people when they are really in tune with their bodies and how to properly nourish themselves for their goals. However, sometimes it can set people up for blood sugar crashes, cravings, hangry feelings, and overeating later in the day.” 

The problem is, few of us have enough extra time in the morning to whip up a filling breakfast beyond pouring a bowl of cereal or grabbing a container of yogurt. Pancakes? Please.

One solution is to prep your breakfasts ahead of time, much like you might your lunch — especially if you’re trying to be healthy, so you’re not tempted to grab a muffin on-the-go. Here are five recipes that will take little time to assemble in the evening, but offer big nutritional payoff come morning!
