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)
  • you can make them ahead

Because there’s nothing worse than holiday weight gain or spending your time cooking instead of enjoying.

In this post, you’ll find:

  • Delicious oat recipes
  • Hearty egg dishes
  • Healthy classic indulgences (cinnamon rolls, breads, etc)

Now, let’s dig in!
