It’s the most important meal of the day and yadda, yadda, yadda. While breakfast may be on your ever-growing list of “shoulds,” with kids to get ready for school, dogs to be walked and that snooze button just a little too tempting, it’s easy to find yourself running behind and leaving the house with an empty stomach.
We know your mornings are rushed and you barely have time to dry your hair, let alone luxuriate with Matt Lauer over a cup of coffee. But that doesn’t mean you can’t eat a nutritious, home-cooked breakfast — even when crunched for time. A little planning is all it takes.
Allison Stevens, a personal chef and registered dietitian in Austin, is adamant that just a few minutes of breakfast prep early in the week is well worth the effort on busy mornings. “You save time and decrease stress,” says Stevens, who operates PrepDish.com, an online meal planning service.
Whether using a slow cooker for ready-to-eat oatmeal or making batched breakfast meals and pre-portioning for the week ahead, a little forethought ensures that you won’t forget your breakfast again.
