Home-made Frozen Breakfast Sandwich
Yes, you read that right. Frozen sandwiches are the easiest breakfasts aside from hopping into a drive-thru and buying one that is processed and full of unwanted ingredients and additives.
“Like what,” you ask?
Those hot and “fresh” sandwiches are usually packed with preservatives so they can stay in market freezers for a long period of time. It keeps their price low, just like the nutrient value they offer you. So, how do you decide exactly what goes inside to ensure a truly healthy start? You make your own!
But you don’t have to make own every day. You can cook for the week!
The Kitchn outlines a basic recipe with detailed methods on how to bake and cook efficiently. Modify by nixing the bacon and cheese. Perhaps add veggies or a vegan pesto spread. Prepare and stock the freezer on Sunday, and you won’t have to do anything but heat the sandwiches up every morning that week! Modify the ingredients to your own diet. Need to opt for gluten-free or vegan choices? Go for it!

Sometimes you really don’t have time to cook or microwave anything at all. And sometimes you’re so busy, you don’t even have an appetite to eat breakfast. But it’s a bad idea to skip!
What’s a good compromise? A shake! Throw in your favorite creamy beverage, greens, and fruits, and mix away. But if you don’t have time for that, we have you covered.
