Let’s face it – mornings can be hectic. After hitting the snooze button three times, changing your outfit twice, and attempting to get ready for work, there’s not much time left for whipping up a healthy breakfast. Set aside a few hours on Sunday to prep one or two of these recipes and you can count on smooth mornings all week.
