Well guys, it’s that time of year….AGAIN?!
Pencils, pens, scissors, buses, packing lunches, getting up earlier….yup, you guessed it.
It’s almost time to start classes again! I head back tomorrow, but I’m taking a little detour to DC to visit the boy. 🙂
With a busy year (MY LAST YEAR OF COLLEGE) ahead, I thought it would be fun to do a big ol’ roundup of the most important meal of the day: breakfast! I feel like most people tend to skip breakfast during the school year because they have to get up early. NO EXCUSES PEOPLE. Having breakfast is so important for your body, energy levels, and brain functioning.
Shoutout to my awesome ladies of the BGB Community who helped me out on this one. These recipes are easy, delicious, and PACKED with protein to keep you full and focused all morning long.
Plus, most of them are easy to make ahead on Sunday night for the whole week! Can’t get any easier than that, right? 🙂
