The toddler is responsible for inspiring this weeks question. Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, not because of the food but because I have made it routine for us to wake up and prepare something healthy every morning. It’s a non-negotiable mommy/toddler time in the kitchen and today the toddler had his own idea on how he wanted to start the day.
Now, I think we all know how important breakfast is for overall health and weight loss. Don’t we? Just in case, here’s a really good write up.
I’ve noticed since starting this journey I really only have a handful of breakfast ideas that I tend to put into rotation. Some may think they would get bored eating the same things over and over but on the contrary having a few “go to’s” takes any pressure off of deciding what to have on busy mornings. It’s like my own personal menu.
My morning options include Whole Grain Pancakes, eggs, oatmeal (like Apple Pie Oatmeal or Creamy Berry Oatmeal), high fiber cereal with fresh fruit and Whole Wheat Banana Muffins. Actually, now that I write them out I had more options then I realized.
There are days when I literally have no time (I’m sure you can relate) and on those days I normally grab a piece of fruit and a lite yogurt or granola bar to eat in the car.
No matter what I never leave without eating or bringing something for the car.
So how about you? What do you eat for breakfast?
