Start the each day off strong with easy breakfast recipes. A healthy breakfast will give everyone a good start to their day and put a smile on their faces!
With the start of school just around the corner, my mind turns to easy breakfast recipes. During the summer, we get pretty lazy about breakfast. There isn’t any pressure to get everyone ready and out the door at a certain time so breakfast is a laid-back, do-your-own-thing affair.
During the school year, it’s a different story. We all get an early start and it can be a little chaotic at times. Breakfast is an important meal and I don’t want my kids to fizzle out of energy by 10AM. I want to have nutritious food that we can eat quickly with minimal clean-up.
Please don’t skip breakfast! Need a few reasons not to? Web MD says that breakfast may be the most important meal of the day. Kids who eat breakfast concentrate better, get higher test scores, and are more focused and energetic. The same is true for adults. Eating breakfast kickstarts your metabolism and helps you maintain a healthy weight.
Sounds like a pretty tall order, doesn’t it? The good news is that a little prep work done ahead of time will take most of the stress out of the early morning rush hour. Trust me, a little prep work goes a long way. When the alarm clock goes off, breakfast is almost ready. Your brain doesn’t even have to be totally awake yet. You can do this on auto-pilot.
I’ve compiled a list of more than 20 easy breakfast recipes that will leave your kids (and you!) full, energetic, and ready to learn. Have a happy day!
