Breakfast is something we all struggle with. We’re feeling this especially right now, as we try to make the most of summer, while still preparing ourselves for back-to-school/back-to-work/back-t0-normal routines. The best way to check breakfast off your morning to-do list? Prep it ahead of time. Carve out a little time on Sunday to make one big batch breakfast that you and your family can enjoy all week long without having to even think about it.

Here are 7 ideas to inspire you.
