Warning: Bragging Mom post ahead!! Do NOT read if you can’t stomach a mom bragging about her son.
There he is, the toddler in all his morning glory. He is the reason I changed my lifestyle and perspective on health and life. He is my ultimate motivation and inspiration. And I am proud of not only the breakfast I have made for him but for the fact that we ate it together.
Studies show numerous benefits when it comes to eating meals together but most people focus on dinner. I say let’s combine the fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day with family time and make breakfast a non-negotiable commitment to a healthier lifestyle.
This morning we each ate a 1 egg omelet. I paired mine with a whole wheat English muffin while the toddler enjoyed a leftover whole grain waffle (made from this pancake recipe) toasted right out of the freezer topped with low sugar jelly. We are out of produce as I haven’t hit the grocery store yet so our normal addition of fresh fruit was supplemented with a little watered downed 100% juice and I had some nice green tea.
Really I don’t think I could have started my day any better!
