“Prep for success” aka words to live by. Everyone meal preps for a successful week right? What about prepping for breakfast? It’s the most important meal of the day and if you start the day wrong, you’ll most likely end up reaching for something unhealthy mid-morning and again during the afternoon. This can negatively impact your energy levels throughout the day and leave you tired and unfocused. Take these steps to make sure you have a successful weekday morning:
- Set your alarm just 10 minutes earlier. It won’t make a difference in your energy levels but will allow you to get ready in a timely matter. There’s nothing worse than feeling disoriented first thing in the morning.
- Choose easy, grab & go options that you can eat during your commute to work or school.
- Bake something on Sunday that can last you the week. Banana bread, muffins and cookies are just a few options. If you’re not a baker, stick to eating Mylk Labs oatmeal cups. We promise you won’t regret it. :)
Today, we’re featuring Jasmine Comer from @livelymeals for an exclusive breakfast cookie recipe she created. These are perfect to prep for your weekday mornings!
“Whenever I hear breakfast and cookies in the same sentence I know it’s going to entail something good. These cookies are slightly sweet and packed with healthy fats to help you power through the morning.” -Jasmine Comer
- 1 egg, sub flax egg for vegan
- 1 large ripe banana (mashed)
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¾ cup whole wheat flour, sub GF flour
- 2x Mylk Labs Roasted Almond & Himalayan Pink Salt Oatmeal Cups
