Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. You’ve probably heard that 1000 times, and actually it is true. Breakfast gets you set up to do the work you need to do. Not having breakfast or not having a good breakfast sets you up for a mid-morning slump. And kids who don’t eat breakfast don’t do as well in school.
So, when your sleepy-eyed family comes out in the morning, what does a organic mama feed them? Well, here are some of the things we usually have for breakfast:
Organic oatmeal with dried, fresh, or frozen blueberries. Put a little real maple syrup on this for sweetness.
Organic eggs and organic whole grain toast.
Organic whole grain toast with organic peanut butter.
Fruit and yogurt.
I’ll bet most of these things sound like traditional breakfast items. They are, but we just buy the organic version. Sometimes I make whole grain pancakes or waffles or some sort of muffins. But I think keeping breakfast simple is the best way to get people to eat breakfast every day. Most of these items don’t cost too much more in their organic form. Especially oatmeal (you can buy bulk organic oatmeal) and yogurt can be made at home or bought in large containers.
What’s your favorite organic breakfast?
