Create a Meal Planner for Quick Breakfast
May 07 2012
Like most folks, I’m usually a bit pressed for time first thing in the morning. However, I also agree with the old adage that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and a crucial part of healthy meal plans. Eating a healthy and nutritious breakfast sets you on the right path for the rest of the day.
What do you do when you’ve got lunches to make, kids to awaken and dress and a little time to read the newspaper in the mornings? Plan ahead! It’s soooo easy to stop off on your way to work and pick up whatever fast food that’s in your path. It’s also not a very wise or healthy thing to do.
Plan ahead. Around our place, my three year old loves waffles for “breakfixed” as she calls it. I am not about to whip up a batch of waffles every morning and store bought is out of the question. Therefore, I usually make a batch of waffles or pancakes for breakfast on Sunday mornings when I have more time. A batch of waffles means about 12 and with only three of us eating, that leaves quite a few left over. These I freeze and then zap on the weekday mornings for a really fast breakfast. A waffle, some fruit and maybe some yogurt and my daughter is a happy camper.
My wife and daughter also made muffins this weekend and along with some of our homemade granola that was made about a month ago, we’re fully stocked for breakfast options. Planning ahead and making foods that can be stored either in the freezer or as dry goods, is the best way to save time when life is too hectic in the mornings. And homemade is always better for you.
