It’s back-to-school time for many kids all over the world!
For parents, getting organized and settled into a busy routine after a long, lazy summer can be daunting. We can help with one big piece of the puzzle – healthy meal prep.
Popular wisdom (and many nutrition experts) say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, meaning what you eat first thing in the morning will impact your mental and physical performance for hours to come. But we know how hard it can be to find time for a healthy breakfast during the morning rush.
Good news – we’ve gathered together seven delicious and nutritious recipes from IIN grads. You can prepare almost all of them in 45 minutes or less on a Sunday evening and enjoy them all week long.
