Easy Breakfast Options

Posted on 12. Feb, 2013 in Uncategorized

I don’t know about you but having a few go to healthy breakfast options is a must for this mom. Otherwise the all too familiar and “easy” toaster waffels, french toast sticks, bagel with creme cheese will dominate the menu. 

I work healthy options in to the meal plan. I don’t force the issue but try and live a healthy lifesytle and know that our son goes for the healthy option most of the time.  Here are a couple breakfast options that work for our “picky” eater:

Add 1/2 a scoop of either chocolate or vanilla whey protein power mixed with 2 tbs of coconut or almond milk. Then add to the cooked oatmeal.

Gettin enough fruits and veggies is always a challenge. This one can be used anytime breakfast, lunch, snack.

1/2 cup non-fat greek yogurt and fruit of choice. Top w/crushed walnuts or 1tbs granola.

Last one is like a dessert for breakfast! I don’t know about you but nothing brings back childhood memories than the taste of a creamsicle.  This is a protein packed version without the sugar!

Creamsicle Breakfast Smoothie

  • 1 cup cold pure coconut water, without added sugar or flavor (see Tip)
  • 1 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen or fresh mango chunks
  • 3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 2 cups ice
  1. Blend coconut water, yogurt, mango, orange juice concentrate and ice in a blender until smooth.

Tips & Notes

  • Tip: Look for pure coconut water without added sugar in the refrigerated section near other flavored waters or near shelf-stable waters and natural fruit juices.

Let me know what you think or better yet did these go over well with your kids!
