Easy, Healthy Breakfast Ideas
Guest post by DJ Little
Anyone up for easy?
What's for breakfast?
Ok, so nutrition and simplicity I'm all about! With six children still at home and five of them still little (ok, our oldest of the "little" ones is twelve), I try to make things as simple as can be. Since we homeschool, wake-up time varies. We have a few that wake up somewhere between 5:30am and 6:00am (I don't understand why a person would willingly get up at that time of day) and some that don't wake up till 7:30ish… by that time the early risers are either starving or have already eaten.
As I write this, I have a three-year-old in my lap saying "mom, me want oatmeal." So there you go; that is our typical breakfast request. We have one other that I will write about next time. So for now, a couple of our favorite oatmeal recipes! Here are a few they make on their own…
Quick and Easy Oatmeal Recipes
Organic oats, Organic unsweetened almond milk, one scoop Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Collagen powder (you can buy it here), a large scoop organic peanut butter powder, and stir! Simple.
Organic oats, organic unsweetened almond milk, one scoop Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Collagen powder, cinnamon, apple slices and stir! (Some put peanut butter powder in that as well.)
Organic oats, organic unsweetened almond milk, one scoop Ancient Nutrition Vanilla Collagen Powder and stir! Three ingredients - that's what I'm talkn' about!
Organic oats, organic unsweetened almond milk, one scoop Dr. Mercola Chocolate Vegan protein powder (find it here) and stir! (You can also add the peanut butter powder to this one for an extra Yummm!)
So there you have it folks! These are child-tested and made. So easy!
Now, here is one more that I make for them from time to time...
Baked Oatmeal Done Simply!
In blender, add one container of organic unsweetened vanilla almond milk, three or four bananas, one or two scoops Now Better Stevia or a few drops of vanilla flavored stevia, and blend well. Pour over oats in a 9X13” (I don't measure my oats; I just make sure there is still some liquid showing) and bake for twenty minutes at 350, and then serve with almond milk.
