One strategy that really helps me stay on track is prepping my breakfasts for the week on the weekend. That way I know I have good, healthy choices that I can grab and prepare in just a few minutes. This recipe is one I reach for often. The sandwich holds up surprisingly well in the fridge and you can either panini it the day of or ahead of time and just reheat it in the microwave.
