What are the best breakfast meals to prep ahead of time?


Mini bagel sandwiches topped with ham, cheese, and egg can be made in advance, frozen, and then reheated. Overnight oats or two hard-boiled eggs sliced on a piece of toast provide macronutrient balance. Lastly, think leftovers—a grilled chicken sandwich is great morning fuel. If nothing is cooked, grab a glass of milk or a container of Greek yogurt. Remember, something is better than nothing.
