“You’re having overnight oats? At 9 am? What a loser.”
I’ve never been a big breakfast eater myself, as I naturally get hungry at around 11 am. But there were a few years when I was working a desk job and having 3 croissants and a latte at my desk at 9:30 am just felt like the right thing to do.
Well, to make your day better here are some healthier breakfast options that you can grab, go, and even share with your children.
