Coffee can give you a burst of energy, but that’s about all. So I’ve come up with a list of some make ahead and/or quick to prepare breakfast options to help you get your day off to a good start.
If you have a go to breakfast idea that you’d like to share, please feel free to email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll add it to this post.
