5 Portable Breakfast Ideas You Can Meal Prep Ahead of Time

 In Make, Tips & Tricks

With both of us having millions of things going on at once lately (new babe, work, summer plans etc.), we’ve come to the conclusion that there is just not enough time every day to whip up a luxurious and tasty breakfast. We’d consider ourselves pretty good at planning ahead, but we’re taking the breakfast meal prep game to a whole new level these days. How many of you would consider yourself an avid meal prepped? Kudos to you if you are!

The phrase ‘meal prep’ can have such an ugly association with it if your mind automatically reverts to the classic chicken, rice, and broccoli meal that you often see ‘healthy’ people throwing together. Here at WTR, we are determined to make meal prep a beautiful and delicious thing and thus we felt obligated to round up some pretty incredible recipe ideas by some of our favorite food bloggers. Shout out to them for the creativity! These recipes are easy to make and will STILL have you drooling even when you pull them out of the freezer or open up the container on your busy morning!
