Breakfast

I like to give Layla eggs at least every other day because its a good source of protein and the yolk is rich in iron. Usually I make scrambled because its easier for her to pick up the chunks. With every meal I give her a side of fruit as well.

Quick and Easy Organic French Toast Breakfast

IMG_0097We are all about breakfast in our household…if you can tell! But with work and play date schedules we’re always on a time crunch so I’ve tried to find quick but hearty breakfasts I can make for the whole family! We all love French Toast and eggs and this recipe literally takes under two minutes to make.

What you need: 3 eggs, 3 pieces of toast (any kind you like…we use multigrain, but some like cinnamon or other sweet breads), cinnamon, milk and maple syrup. I like to use all organic products.

1. Beat 3 eggs and apx 2 tblsp of milk (you can add 1/2 tspn of vanilla and 1/2 tspn of brown sugar for a sweeter egg batter)

2. Soak your toast in the mix for apx 1 min (make sure to get both sides)

3. Cook both sides on a heated skillet and your done!

4. Sprinkle with cinnamon and your favorite maple syrup

I made scrambled eggs with the leftover egg batter. I like Layla to have fruit with every meal so this AM we had fresh squeezed organic OJ. IMG_0099

Recipe: Easy Breakfast

Breakfast seems to be a favorite in our household, but sometimes (or a lot of times) we are in a rush, so making eggs, pancakes and the whole shebang is not an option. Oatmeal is quick and easy…under 5 minutes. Bring half a cup of organic rolled oats to a boil (sometimes I add some milk as well) and let it simmer for a few minutes. The time it takes to cook varies depending on the brand of oats you buy. Top off with small bites of your favorite fruit. We usually do strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or bananas. Top it all off with a sprinkle of cinnamon and enjoy with your little one. Mommy tested, Layla approved. IMG_4558 IMG_4509 IMG_4521
