(easy to peel and eat), peanut butter on toast, yoghurt with fruit…
It’s also good to have some snack handy – nuts and dried fruits are my favourite. Just check there’s no added sugar when buying a mix.
Hope this helps.
Morning. Plug it in and set the time and off you go.
But it’s just planning
Do act like preparing is more important
If you’re struggling with the more technical rather than emotional part of this process, it may help to look into both the small and big ways your time may be used up during the day and work to remove some of those timesinks. They can be anything from playing a distracting mobile game or surfing the web aimlessly to dealing with the problems of other people around us instead of working through our own issues—like making time for planning and breakfast prep! You can even schedule time to prepare food when you sit down to plan the day because you really do have that power, that freedom, to shape the day and therefore your life by choosing your needs first.
I wish you the best.
– Prepare food the day before
– Free more time in the morning
– Plan the day during cooking in your mind. Or plan in the evening the day before.
You can prepare breakfast the night before with an Overnight Oats or an egg dish (quiche, frittata, or egg cups) that can be portioned to grab, heat, and eat.
Instead of packing a lunch in the morning, you can prepare lunches the night before or make your week’s lunches on one day (like Sunday). Then each morning, you just have to grab and go.
At dinnertime, we usually make enough so that there is enough leftovers to be lunch the next day. This is good if you don’t mind eating the same thing two meals in a row.
One day a week (usually Sunday) we make a meal plan for dinners for the week and make a grocery shop based off that meal plan.
I hope this helps! Good luck with creating a system that works for you!
- Why is it wrong to skip breakfast? I know people who skip breakfast and actually feel better after skipping breakfast.
- I can eat in the morning, but I’m having a hard time eating before going to work because no matter what time I wake up I feel like I’m always running late. I want to eat before I get to work because I want to eat breakfast within an hour of waking up to start my day off right. How do you do it?
- Is eating breakfast the first or last part of your morning routine?
- How do I start remembering things better and feel comfortable with it?
- What are some yummy add-ins that you like to put in your overnight oats?
- Is caffeine okay, or not recommended?
- What do you have for breakfast as a healthy option?
- I have to get two kids (2 and 3) ready every morning and don’t ever feel like I have time to cook eggs for breakfast. What are some very healthy going-out-the-door recipes that take minimal prep?
- Is it good to run before or after breakfast?
- Any small meals that are filling? I’m not very hungry in the morning and don’t know what to eat.
