6 Totally baked. Homemade muffins or scones arenít just a weekend luxury. Bake them up on a Sunday, then leave a few out for the first couple days of the week. Store these in an airtight container, and you can either grab them and go when the work week arrives, or freshen them up with a brief zap in the microwave or toaster oven. As for the remaining muffins, wrap them in foil and pop into a plastic baggie; throw them in the freezer. When youíre ready to dig into a muffin, pull it out and thaw overnight, or bake from frozen for about 15-20 minutes at 350F, until warmed through. Frozen baked goods are a perfect option for those who like their breakfasts salty rather than sweet too -- try whipping up muffins and scones flavored with cheese, bacon, herbs and other savory flavorings.
a smoothie. For a refreshing change of breakfast pace,
try making smoothies! Throw some milk or yogurt into the olí blender
along with your choice of fresh fruit (save yourself the effort of having
to laboriously prep your fruit in the AM by freezing chunked-up, smoothie-ready
fruit -- come morning, just toss the frozen fruit directly into the blender).
Try soy, rice or almond milks for a slightly different milk base; pour
in a little juice, honey or maple syrup to sweeten things up. You can
even toss in a little wheat germ or protein powder for an added nutritional
boost. Change up your smoothie formula to suit your mood. And if youíre
in a rush to get out the door, no worries: pour your finished smoothie
into a thermos, and you have a healthy tasty breakfast that you can take
with you on the commute into work.
