How To Meal Prep A Week's Worth Of Breakfast In Under 10 Minutes

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, breakfast often becomes an afterthought. We've all been there, running out the door in the morning then dipping into a cafe or super market to grab a delicious yet regretful convenient food item (croissants, muffins, power bar, fruit smoothie- we see you!)

However, when starting your day with a nutritious meal, it can set the tone for healthier choices throughout the day which leads to a healthy week which leads to crushing your wellness goals and staying on track with a healthy eating plan!

So, how do we achieve this beautiful chain of positive results?!

Meal-prepping. Especially meal prepping breakfast.

Meal prepping breakfast is a powerful strategy to ensure you stay on track with your healthy eating routine, save precious time, and enjoy a delicious start to your day.

In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of meal-prepping breakfast and provide step-by-step instructions on how to prepare overnight oats using your high-protein, low-sugar, breakfast bestie, Oat of the Ordinary.

Why Meal-Prepping Breakfast is Essential

1. Supports Consistency in Healthy Eating

When you have a healthy breakfast ready to go, you’re more likely to stick to your dietary goals. Meal-prepping ensures that you start each day with a nutritious meal, reducing the temptation to grab unhealthy options.

2. Saves Time and Reduces Morning Stress

Mornings can be chaotic, and spending time preparing breakfast can add to the stress. By meal-prepping, you eliminate the need to cook or decide what to eat each morning. This extra time can be used for other productive activities or simply to enjoy a more relaxed start to your day.

3. Reduces Decision Fatigue

Deciding what to eat every day can be mentally exhausting. Meal-prepping reduces decision fatigue by having your meals planned and prepared ahead of time. This helps you stay focused and make healthier choices without the daily mental strain.

4. Promotes Balanced Nutrition

Preparing your meals in advance allows you to ensure each meal is balanced and packed with essential nutrients. This is especially important for breakfast, which fuels your body and brain for the day ahead.

5. Cost-Effective

Oat of the Ordinary multi-serve has 9x 40g servings = under $2 per serving!  This supports a more cost-effective option than purchasing breakfast on the go. Meal-prepping helps you save money while still enjoying nutritious and delicious meals.
