17 Healthy Holiday Breakfasts You Can Make Ahead

I adore holiday breakfasts! It’s one more excuse to enjoy food with family.

But these dishes from around the web require THREE things: they must be delicious, healthy(ish), AND you can make them ahead. Because there’s nothing worse than holiday weight gain or spending your time cooking instead of enjoying.

Plus, all of the recipes have a little extra flair, something that’s perfectly suited for a holiday breakfast.
