Simple Breakfast Schedule
Having a baby threw our breakfast routine right out the door. It's been mostly cold cereal around here for 6 months with the occasional baked oatmeal or pancakes. It's just one of those things you have to let go of in order to keep your sanity when change and upheaval happens!
This week I pulled the "breakfast schedule" back out and began implementing it again. I forgot how wonderful it is to see my children eat variety, eat together (instead of each of them getting cereal on their own and at differing times) and eat beautifully (I am actually setting the morning table again!)
Here is the daily schedule. Nothing fancy, but simple, healthy and diverse.
Monday: Yogurt Parfaits (organic vanilla yogurt with granola and frozen fruit)
Tuesday: Whole Grain Bagels with Cream Cheese and Fruit
Wednesday: Baked Oatmeal and Fruit
Thursday: Eggs, Toast, and Fruit
Friday: Muffins or French Toast and Fruit
Saturday: Anything goes...pancakes or cereal or bagels
Sunday: Mike cooks! And that means something with sausage or bacon!
What are your favorite simple breakfasts that don't include cereal??
