Easy and Quick Breakfasts to Get Your Day Started

Mornings are a hectic routine here in the Schaffer household. Getting the kids prepped for school, looking over my work schedule, checking in with Bobby before he heads out for work—not to mention the fact that I’m trying (keyword: trying) to stay on an intermittent fasting diet—mornings can be a little stressful. Which is why I’m always brainstorming ways to save some time in the kitchen while still making sure everyone is well-fed and ready to start the day. These seven breakfast recipes are easy, delicious and will get you and your family out the door to tackle the day!
