30 (Healthy!) Grab & Go Breakfasts

I’m a big fan of breakfast. As a matter of fact, I’d even go so far as to say that it ranks among my top 6 (yes, 6) favorite daily meals. But, if there’s one thing that I love almost as much as breakfast (well, you know, aside from lunch, dinner, and snacks…), it’s sleep.

Luckily, I’ve found a more balanced way to approach my morning meal. By simply preparing my breakfast the night before, I can rest assured that I am out the door on time, healthy breakfast in tow.  (more…)
