Busy Babe Breakfast


When I was going to school and working full-time I NEVER ate breakfast. I thought I was way to busy to deal with it and had no idea there were so many EASY ways to make it to go. So, now that I’m way smarter ?and realize what a huge impact food has on our energy,  I wanted to share a super simple recipe I know you’ll love!

This is a no-excuses breakfast you can have hot or cold and, even though it’s technically “breakfast,” I honestly love it any time of day. It’s nutrient-packed, super delicious, and only takes like 3 minutes to make!

I actually found this recipe on PlateJoy, who you know I love, and have make it almost every week since.
