Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. And I’m always looking for healthy breakfast ideas that will give me energy to get through the day.
And better yet if they are make ahead for those busy mornings or when I don't want to make something from scratch!

- Oats are packed with fiber. Fiber helps keep things moving along smoothly in our intestinal tract. A diet high in fiber also helps reduce cholesterol, regulate blood sugar levels, regulate blood pressure, and lower your risk of heart disease. Since Oatmeal will help you feel full longer, it can help you lose weight.
- Blueberries are superfoods too. They provide vitamin C, fiber, and powerful disease-fighting antioxidants.
- Pecans pack a 1-2-3 punch of protein, healthy fats, and fiber that can help keep you energized and satisfied. Pecans are a good source of calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which help lower blood pressure.
