Early Meetings and Avoiding Being Hangry

PUMPKIN SMOOTHIEI have a weekly meeting at 7:15 am and breakfast is not available. I usually bring my own and I am generally the only one who does. I asked if anyone ate prior to the meeting and about 1/2 the group does. The other half admitted to just grabbing something after the meeting and it generally wasn’t healthy.

I just can’t get my act together early enough to sit and eat breakfast and still be on time for the meeting. I’m either rushing and choking something down – which is about as appealing as it sounds or I have to skip it. I’m mean and/or unfocused when I don’t eat so I choose to have grab and go things ready.

In a pinch I’ll grab hard boiled eggs & a brown rice cake or a Lara Uber Bar and an apple. Usually I have overnight oats or a smoothie. I throw the ingredients in the blender the night prior and just add ice & blend in the morning.

The other day I came across a recipe for Banana Nut Quinoa Muffins on Fannetastic Food. I think that I’m going to make a batch of these and freeze some. Then I have another fun and healthy grab and go option.
