No more lazy mornings; it’s back to the morning rush of getting the kids out the door – dressed, fed and on time. Time to figure out a way to ease the morning chaos. One thing that works well for us is make-ahead breakfasts or breakfasts that cook while you get ready. Sure there’s cereal, but I’m not a huge fan of the dried carb filled with sugar (more carbs), then possibly some processed form of nutrients added back in with the claim of a healthy breakfast. Um, no thanks. I’ve found some recipes that are delicious and nutritious and easy on the morning time crunch. Yes it’s true, keep reading you too shall see…

Cinnamon French Toast 10 of 11My kids love french toast, but it can be time consuming to make each morning. My husband did the sweetest thing and made a bunch ahead of time over the weekend and wrapped them individually and froze. That way all we had to do in the morning was grab and microwave for a few seconds and warm, yummy breakfast was ready.
