School is back in session and with 4 kids (3 in school) mornings are busy, busy, busy! I have worked hard to teach my kids that nutrition is important and that the food they eat is their fuel for the day, so THEY BETTER choose well!  Even though mornings and getting out the door for school can be a whirlwind we make time to nourish our mind and body with a nutritious breakfast.

If your kids are anything like mine they want to pick what they want to eat. Making eggs for everyone doesn’t work.  So I came up with some yummy choices to add on to our breakfast menu to give the kids options.  All the breakfast choices are full of healthy fats for brain power, clean protein for energy and stamina, and complex carbs for lasting fuel through the day.  Even better so far all 4 of my kids have enjoyed the foods and their has been no arguments about breakfast! Hooray win-win for everyone!

Here are my 2 EASY PREP NOURISHING BREAKFASTS FOR YOUR BUSY MORNINGS!


OVERNIGHT SOAKED PORRIDGE

  • 3-4 cups gf oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla grass fed whey protein powder
  • 1 cup organic blueberries
  • handful of raisins, handful chopped raw pecans
  • Chopped 1/2 organic apple
  • a good few shakes of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • Pour 1 can FULL fat organic coconut milk over top and mix well.

Let soak in fridge overnight. serving size is about 1/2 cup. Enjoy  EASY PEASY!!!


PROTEIN POWER BALLS

DRY

  • 2 cup gf oats
  • 1 cup plain shredded coconut
  • 1 handful each of flax and hemp seeds
  • 2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
  • 1 scoop grass fed whey protein powder
  • 4 Tablespoons coconut flour
  • couple shakes of cinnamon and stir together

WET

  • 1/2 cup sunflower butter
  • 1/2 cup raw almond butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey and stir together.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir together. Wet hands with some water and form into balls then let set in the fridge for about 30 minutes. I am always mixing up the ingredients and you can really use any combo you like!


Along with these options I also have on hand eggs (hardboiled are quick and easy on the go) and grass-milk organic plain milk yogurt.  For now these have worked well.  I will switch things up week to week but so far its been a great start to the school year!

Be Well 🙂
