Make Breakfast For The Week In Under 20 Minutes (And Sleep In Everyday)

Make Breakfast For The Week In Under 20 Minutes (And Sleep In Everyday)

Hands up for those of you who struggle to find time to make and eat a healthy breakfast? I get it, you choose an extra 10 minutes of sleep in a warm and cozy bed and suddenly you’re running late and have to throw healthy habits to the wind. Sorry to bust your bubble ladies but no bride of mine is picking up a pastry and coffee on the way to work simply because she wants a few more zzz’s.

Before you get mad and think that I am going all ‘Jillian Michaels’ on your morning routine, let me tell you that you can have that extra ten minutes of sleep and still have time to eat a delicious and healthy breakfast.

I see I caught your attention…

In today’s video I walk you through my own Sunday afternoon routine. This is when I prepare 6 days worth of breakfast in 20 minutes or less and once you watch the video you will see how easy it is to do.

You will be singing my granola praises come Monday, but I’d love to hear from you now in the comments below. Tell me if this tutorial was helpful for you and would you like to see more like it in the future.

With snoozes and smoothies,
