Make-ahead breakfast solutions that are healthy and yummy are so important! I had a few mornings of cooking up eggs, slicing up fruit and dishing out toast to realize that adding cooking to the hectic school mornings was not a good idea. I would leave the kids to “eat,” so I could brush my teeth or find shoes, and come back to them playing and not eating. I learned quick that breakfast needs to be handled the night before, not the morning of. I also know how important protein is to sustaining my kids energy through the school day. My oldest especially, burns through energy fast, and protein and fat will sustain their little brains to keep learning much longer.
Make-ahead breakfast sandwiches are my go-to! Here is the variety I make, which all work well for my boys and husband!
I do a combination of fried eggs with cheese, sausage, turkey, avocado and sometimes fruit, depending on what I have. I pre-cook everything, and wrap in tin-foil for the weeki! Super easy, and the boys like a wheat English muffin as a base, toasted with butter. I heat them up quick, and there’s no cooking or cleaning in the crazy mornings!

If you have no clue how to pump, or need help pumping more breast milk, READ THIS!
If breastfeeding in general is difficult, or you feel overwhelmed and worried, I found THIS so HELPFUL!!
Struggling to lose the baby weight while breastfeeding? I have the perfect solution for you!
Here’s what other mamas have said about my solution:
“I’m on the 14 day clean eating part and already feel a change. I love that your program caters to nursing moms. These recipes are boosting my milk supply! Thanks again and can’t wait to use the new app!”
“As far as counting calories, yes that was so helpful!… it was an eye opener…But your concept of reducing ever so slightly and monitoring milk supply was so helpful! I have lost 6lbs-yay!- and have 12 more to go! I am encouraged for sure because it is usually not until I’m done nursing that I’m able to lose weight. So I’m all in for hopefully the rest of my life-on clean eating like this and exercise! Thanks so much for your help!!”
“Feeling GREAT on this program!!! It’s unbelievable how eating clean makes such a difference. Let me rephrase that…it’s amazing the difference eating nutrient dense foods makes! My skin is glowing and I’m already shedding pounds! I also tried the first workout today and did well although I had to modify a bit and omit the backwards burpee (I had cesarean just over a month ago and don’t quite feel ready for that exercise just yet but I will get there). Loving this plan! Thank you SO MUCH for tour help! Currently eating pictures lunch while writing this ”
