3 Cheap, Easy, & Healthy Make-Ahead Breakfast Ideas!

Hey Guys!

It’s the last day before Holiday break at the Blogilates HQ! My familia is coming today (like the entire familia) and will be staying at the house. It’s going to be madness. But I love em, so I’m sure it’ll be fine…right!!???

Anyway, wanted to get this Cheap Clean Eats video out to you before Christmas and Hannukah! Perhaps you’ll want to prepare some of these Sunday morning for your family! So, let’s talk brekky shall we?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We know this. It breaks the overnight fast, fuels your metabolism and prevents you from losing control later in the day because your blood sugar tanks, leaving you STARVING and eating everything in sight.

But, I totally get not having time though! I’ve been known to skip a meal or two because I didn’t plan ahead. But I never feel good when I do. These three make-ahead-breakfasts leave you no choice! It’s as simple as mixing up the ingredients the night before in under 5 minutes, and spending 2 minutes in the morning finishing them up. They’re fast, inexpensive, gluten-free and healthy!

    For the frozen parfait, is the calorie count for only 1 cup? Do you regularly eat only 1 cup?

    I tried them all, and they were all great! Super yummy, and healthy too! Great breakfast if you’re bored with what you normally have!

  5. Mae Walker says:

    I made the mug pancake with the GF flour–I did change the blueberries to strawberries as thats what I had, and I also added cinnamon and used coconut milk as I was out of almond.
    SO GOOD! This was such a great breakfast. I was really not wanting my normal fruit and nut butter for breakfast, so this mug pancake hit the spot 😀

  6. Patricia says:

  9. Yuxariah says:

    I made a panacake today but I used normal milk and butter cause I didn’t have ghee and almond milk. I also add some vanila sugar, 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and 2 tablespoons od italian nuts instead off blueberries. It was also delicious ❤ perfect breakfast, I’ll try other two recipes, but I’m sure they are also awesome ?

    I swear if you combine these tools you’ll fall asleep in under 5 minutes:
    1. Blue lights blocking glasses – http://amzn.to/2ifDMeY Wear these when you go to sleep or are working on the computer in the evening.
    2. Taurine – http://amzn.to/2hZcc5 Use 5g before bed. Besides being GABAergic Taurine has some other nice benefits: Increases Testosterone levels before sleep by 180% (almost triples your T) – http://suppversity.blogspot.com/2012/07/up-to-180-increase-in-testosterone-w.html So not only are you going to fall asleep faster, you’ll be burning fat AND building muscle while asleep! Increases T4 to T3 conversion 2-fold – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3133948/ – again, higher T3=more fat burning. Increased thyroid activity (Higher T4/T3 conversion) is also often a marker for metabolic health.
    3. Glycine – http://amzn.to/2ijGc8z – 5g before bed. Being a, again, a close GABA analog glycine also seems to be an antiinflammatory, immunomodulatory, and cytoprotective agent – https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12589194 , as well as protecting against ischemic (reduced blow flow) injuries – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22044190 . 4. Niacinamide – http://amzn.to/2ijDvUa – in human doses of 1500mg – 3000mg daily is potent anti-anxiety drug similar in action to the benzodiazepine class of drugs like Diazepam, Valium, and Xanax.
    I can personally attest to the fact that anything above 1500mg dosage at once makes me the mellowest, nicest…and sleepiest person Combine all these tools and there’s no way you’re not going to fall asleep!
