Breakfast is a big deal. It’s been a huge transition for me in my weightloss journey to sit down and do this summer. Normally (and sometimes sadly still) I just get coffee and run around all morning and it isn’t until mid afternoon that I’d be ravishing. This summer I practiced sitting down and taking 15 minutes to eat a healthy mean to jumpstart my day.
It was so rewarding. But, in ways I didn’t realize it would be.
It was 15 minutes my kids & I were able to connect each morning and map out how we wanted out days to go.
I’m hoping now that the school year is only a week away we can continue a morning get together. It will be a bit harder this year as Johnny is starting middle school and is off before the other two even wake up. Maybe now Johnny & Daddy can do some additional morning bonding since they’ll be leaving around the same time.
This summer we did a lot of fresh berry picking. We’ve been using them to make some really yummy baked goods and have been freezing the left overs for the school year breakfast. Since we also garden it’s been important to me to teach the importance of diet and nutrition and how growing and picking our own is so important. How we can then take them and use them into our daily foods. For instance in one week we were able to make and eat blueberry pancakes, blueberry lemon muffins, strawberry oatmeal, and fresh fruit and toast with blueberry jam!
Lucky for us it’s also one of the challenges over at Scholastic right now. What challenge you ask?
