My oldest daughter heads to BYU in the fall and I’m in denial. I’m definitely not old enough to have a graduate and I’m definitely not ready for her to leave home, but apparently I have no choice. Like me, she’ll be staying in on-campus housing, but unlike me, she’ll have a kitchen.

I was all about the cafeteria my first year…and the freshman 15.

Hopefully with a kitchen she can eat a bit healthier and avoid those first-year pounds. I thought I could help her out by rounding up 12 make-ahead breakfast recipes perfect for college students. Because most college students are on a budget, I chose recipes that required fewer—and fairly normal—ingredients. Of course, these recipes aren’t just for college students; they’re perfect for anyone on the go!
