How long does the breakfast hustle take at your house? I have three kids, two of which are in school and both of them don’t like to wake up early so our breakfasts are usually pretty hectic. Do you feel my pain here? I can’t be the only one that goes through this, right?
I was so tired of the breakfast hustle that I did something about it. I created this list of tips, initially for myself to follow, but I have shared with others and now I am not the only one that has changed my household in the morning. Are you ready to put a stop to the breakfast hustle in your household too?
Put a Stop To The Breakfast Hustle with These Tips
Set Your Alarms Early Enough to Enjoy Breakfast
Make sure that you and your children wake up with enough time to get ready for school, and that includes enough time to eat breakfast. Even if you have to set your clock 5 minutes earlier, it will help your mornings.
Don’t be afraid of Convenience Breakfasts
It’s totally okay for your kids to eat cereal or granola bars sometimes. There is no mom shaming here. I don’t recommend that they eat these every day, but then again, I’m not an expert, if you want them to eat them everyday, that’s totally fine too! They are super quick and easy! The most important thing is that your kids don’t leave the house with an empty stomach.
Breakfast Meal Prep
Meal prep. Meal prep. Meal prep. In case you haven’t noticed, I love to recommend meal prep to anyone and everyone. Not only will you stop the breakfast hustle, but you can save a lot of money too! I like to meal prep all meals, but I mostly do meal prep of breakfast and dinner.
Breakfast meal prep is a great way to make your mornings easier. When you know that the kids already have breakfast made and they can just grab and go, you can start your day far less stressed. It may not seem like it would make that much of a difference, but it does.
Here are some really great breakfast meal prep recipes that will help get your mornings off to a great start.
