What are you naturally good at?

The Road Ahead

Hi Jewels,

It’s Monica and as of today I am embarking on a new journey as I will pursue what I am naturally good at. I have officially resigned my position with corporate America. I know the road ahead will be bumpy, but I am confident and faithful that God will be with me every step of the way and I hope you will as well as I share my experiences that lie ahead.

Behind the curtain’s mystic fold
The glowing future lies unrolled

Hey Jewels! Have you heard? Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Here’s why:

  • It kick-starts your metabolism to help you burn more calories throughout the day.
  • Food is fuel. It gives you the energy to do your best throughout the day.
  • It’s delicious.

But who wants to wake up early to make breakfast. Not I! These make-ahead breakfast recipes from The Kitchn make it easy to have a little something in the morning to get your body going. A lot of them are grab-and-go so if you’re not hungry first thing in the morning, you can save it for later in the morning.

  • Yogurt Parfait- layer thick yogurt (plain Greek yogurt mixed with honey or maple syrup is a great option) with jams, fruit, or nut butter in a mason jar. Portion granola into a small plastic bag or plastic container to mix in later so it doesn’t get soggy. Make a few ahead of time and you can be a breakfast-eating queen throughout the week!
  • Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole- Challah, eggs, ham, and cheese. Oh my! This recipe is packed with protein and so easy to munch on the go.
  • Apricot Yogurt Scones For those sweet-teeth out there, this recipe is tangy and sweet and delicious.
  • Oatmeal in jars  More of an oatmeal kind of person? This recipe is great for making a bunch early in the week and portioning it into mason jars. Microwave it in the morning at home or take it with you to work.

Check out the rest of the recipes here and even more make-ahead suggestions from readers here.
