Now that you have breakfast freezer meals covered, be sure to check out the big list of easy dinner ideas!
UPDATED on 20 Dec 2019! Who wants to make mornings easier? Yep! Pretty much all of us do! Mornings tend to be the most stressful part of the day. Take one task off of your plate and free up precious time in the mornings by always having your freezer stocked with some family friendly breakfast freezer meals ready to go!
Breakfast Freezer Meals Tips
If you are a seasoned meal prepare or just starting out, breakfast is the one meal that I love to have people start out with! Going from scrambling to crank out 3 meals a day to meal prepping 14-21 meals all in a day or two just isn’t going to happen and it’s not successful.
Let’s start by setting you up for success!
- On Sunday, decide what you are going to make for your breakfasts for the upcoming week. Start by thinking Monday-Friday is all. That’s it. Decide what is going to work and make a list of ingredients you need and shop for them.
- When making decisions on what to make, keep it simple and make sure you want to eat it.
- Continuing on after you have returned from the grocery store, prep your 5 breakfasts you decided on and pop them in the freezer (or refrigerator, if they are not freezer meals) for a quick grab and go breakfast.
- Each breakfast below should yield you over 5 days of breakfasts so you could be putting forth effort for 2 weeks instead of one!
That is it! It is really 3 simple steps! Decide, shop and prep. Once you get going on meal prepping breakfasts, you will find that it takes less and less time each week because you no longer need to think and research so much! I promise, it gets a lot easier the more you do it.
Why Should I Meal Prep Breakfast?
- Saves so much time! Prepping your breakfasts on Sunday, frees up so much time during the week!
- Saves so much money! Since you are meal prepping, you are planning and buying ingredients for meals you actually make instead of grabbing whatever you see because you are hungry. You also don’t eat out breakfast which is horrifically expensive!
- Saves you from being stressed out! Mornings are hard enough on all of us! Give yourself a little bit of a break by prepping yourself on Sunday for stress free mornings all week long!
- Saves calories! Because you have prepped everything, you are prepping healthier meals instead of grabbing whatever you see at the cafeteria at work (yuk!) or at a drive thru (double yuk!) on your way to work or dropping kiddos off at school! Think of the pounds you can drop by just being a prepper!
