You don’t always have time
to cook up a batch of scrambled eggs when the clock is ticking down the minutes before you have to bolt out the door, and busy mornings can make it all too tempting to simply slather sugary jam on a slice of toast. If this sounds like you, then you’re putting your training and physique goals at risk.

Surprisingly, it doesn’t take much to get it done. We’ve given the stove the morning off and put together a handful of no-cook breakfast recipes that will make your mornings easier and healthier.
