Your mom was right — breakfast is the most important meal of the day! But with our hectic lifestyles, it can be the meal we most often miss. After snoozing your alarm five times and scrambling to look presentable, you’re lucky if you have the chance to slurp down a cup of morning joe before flying out the door.

It doesn’t have to be like that. Here are some quick and easy make-ahead breakfast recipes that — with a little preparation the night before — will kickstart your morning, setting you up for success all day long.

Overnight Oats

Overnight oats offer a tasty, healthy option for people who don’t have time to make breakfast in the morning. And they’re so customizable! We’ve included three overnight oat recipes to choose from, each with a different twist.

Smoothie lovers rejoice! Why didn’t we think of this before? Simply fill mason jars to the top line (1 1/2 cups of fruit) and freeze until you’re ready to use. Dump the contents of the mason jar into your blender, add milk of your choice and any other mix-ins you like, and blend it up. Pour it all back into the mason jar for a handy portable container.
