If there is any word that sums up life in the 21st century, it is surely the word “busy”. It has become the default answer when you ask anybody how they’re doing, and although we might dress it up as a complaint, in truth we all love being busy. If you’re anything like us, the morning is probably the busiest time of the day. Trying to juggle making yourself presentable with making lunch and preparing the school run typically leaves little time for eating—let along making—breakfast, and so The Hut is on cue to lend a hand. There’s no need to slow down though—these speedy breakfast recipes will give you a healthy jump start in no time at all.
