Flexible Breakfast Options

In the past, my strict Paleo diet limited my breakfast options to mostly some version of eggs or fruit.  With flexible eating, I have been able to incorporate a wider variety of foods while still maintaining clean options.  I’ve always loved oatmeal but had to save it as my “cheat” breakfast, but with flexible eating it’s now something I eat multiple times a week.  As a high school teacher, I have to prep and pack my breakfast each morning.  In order to make sure I stick to and hit my macros for the day, I have found that it’s easiest to decide the night before what I am going to have for breakfast.  That way I don’t waste time in the morning trying to figure out what I am going to eat, but simply have to weigh/measure and pack.
