For a meal oft-considered the most important of the day, breakfast usually gets the short shrift. When you're still bleary and the morning alarm is still buzzing in your brain, it's hard to think about getting a nutritious meal ready by the time you need to be out the door. With these make-ahead, freezer (or fridge) friendly breakfasts, you can toast up your homemade food (or grab one with a spoon) while you're putting on your shoes and still eat like it's the weekend.

*For these, it's best if you put the fruit at the bottom of the jar, then add yogurt, then whatever toppings you want. Just store them in the fridge and mix them up when you're ready to eat!
