Working the tourist industry is so much fun! Working days on end without a day off and long hours doesn’t allow fun time to prepare proper meals. I went ahead and prepared meals for the week so that I can just grab my meals and go.
I found this great breakfast meal, Mini Frittatas, that are able to be frozen. You can take them out of the freezer the night before, grab them before work, and pop them in the microwave. They are super easy to make, delicious, and healthy!
