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 Organic 3 Cheese Mac and Cheese

IMG_5998 IMG_5993 IMG_6003 IMG_6021Layla loves anything with cheese. Yesterday she had a lot of protein with her lunch so I figured I would give her a vegetarian dinner, so I made her a quick and easy mac and cheese with a side of broccolini aka baby broccoli. I like using broccolini because the florets are smaller and the stalks are longer so it makes it easier for Layla to feed herself. For the mac and cheese, I had three different types of organic cheese so I mixed it with some pasta, milk and sliver of butter and dinner was made. Layla loved it!

Three cheese organic mac and cheese:

1. Boil 1/2 a cup of organic pasta (I like using Trader Joes Organic Vegetable Radiatore pasta) until cooked completely and drain.

2. Add 2 tablespoons of each: shredded mozzarella, shredded monterey jack and fresh parmesan (I only use organic cheeses, but you can substitute with any type of cheese you like)

3. Add 1 teaspoon of butter and 4 tablespoons of milk

4. Stir until creamy

5. Serve with your little ones favorite veggies and/or protein
