Breakfast is important but whipping up a hot dish every morning when snoozing for ten more minutes is an option is really a no brainer. Sometimes, however, you’ve got to keep the overwhelming hanger that rears its ugly head around 10:45AM under control for the sake of everyone else. Here are three healthy recipes to keep on the back burner that are easier to put together than tapping the snooze button.
