Organizing Breakfast

I am a huge proponent of menu planning. It is such an important way to keep yourself organized and to save your family money. One meal that is often overlooked when planning a menu is breakfast.

Breakfast is an important meal to plan because how we spend our morning sets the tone for the rest of the day. Are you tired of rushing to give your kids (and don't forget yourself) a nutritious breakfast in the morning? After all, it is the most important meal of the day!

Here are some ideas for quick but tasty breakfast ideas:


  • Buy vanilla flavored yogurt and add some fresh or frozen berries and granola or Grapenuts cereal. Parfait that the kids and grown-ups can enjoy!

  • Make a whole grain waffle sandwich. My boys like toasted frozen waffles ( I use the Kashi brand) with peanut butter and bananas and then they eat them like a sandwich.

  • Smoothies are another favorite in our house. Fresh or frozen fruit in the blender with non fat yogurt or skim milk and drink. Yum, yum!

  • Whole wheat english muffins with egg and melted cheese None of these take more than 5 minutes to make and send your family off with a good healthy start to the day! The time invested in menu planning is well worth the worry and energy saved, particularly during the morning rush.

Happy Breakfast-making :-)
