I have had so many people ask me about what I am cooking and for the recipes. So, I have decided to post some recipes and pictures of what we are eating.
Breakfast seems to be the easiest meal of the day for me. So many times we end up with chopped fruit, the same chocolate rice cereal(picture posted below,) or scrambled eggs.
Don’t let me fool you, this cereal isn’t actually that healthy, but it is a hell of a lot healthier than anything from General Mills!! Do some research….or even better, do a test for yourself!! Go ahead! Grab a strong magnet, then pour yourself a bowl of whatever crap cereal you choose, and watch the Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Life or Cheerios follow the magnet. It’s quite disturbing. Then imagine what it is doing to your toddler’s intestines. Yikes. We are eating metal. Yes, that’s correct. Metal.
This brand of cereal passed the test at my house and now it’s my go-to breakfast when I don’t want to cook. Plus, my kids love it. Win, win.
Next, I make scrambled eggs a bunch. We are dairy free so I add about 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk to a 3 egg mixture. This keeps the eggs light and fluffy without a weird taste. I also add a ton of bone broth and collagen to Chloe’s for the additional health benefits. It gives it more of a soup flavor and she loves it. Then, when the eggs are cooked, I add whatever topping I can. I usually add organic ketchup to my kids and salsa to mine. Easy peasy.
Next, I try to have a lot of fresh fruit on hand so we can have a vegan breakfast at any time. The fruit usually consists of bananas, apples, peaches, kiwi, watermelon, cantaloupe, blueberries, strawberries, or anything that is organic I can find at Sprouts or Trader Joe’s. Even Fry’s offers organic fruits and veggies if you look hard enough. They don’t make the good stuff easy to find! It’s quite sad.
That’s it! Eggs, cereal, and fruit mostly! I’m beyond thrilled that school starts next week and I will be cooking so much less. This has been draining to say the least. I feel like a maid and a chef all at once. I can’t wait to start the new Bloodline season and possibly take naps with Chloe. Maybe my expectations are a little high, but I don’t care. That’s my dream.
