When Breakfast is the Last Thing on Your Mind - Adventures With Ellie

When Breakfast is the Last Thing on Your Mind

Anyone else wondering where are the days going? For me it seems that I can't keep up! If you have stopped by my blog you've seen that I've been trying to make sure my family has been eating healthier. I have learned that if you have a good breakfast to start your day it's a sure way to get you going for the rest of the day.

I've seen that when I make sure my kids and myself have something healthy and filling it has made it so it gives us the energy to get things done! Today I'll share 4 easy and super fast breakfast I make for my kids and myself to get us ready for our days.


1- Chia Pudding : Just add 1/2 cup of Almond milk 1/4 cup of water and two tablespoons of Chia seeds. Sometimes I'll have it soak overnight but more then likely I'll do it when I get up and eat it after I have finished getting dressed and getting the kids out the door.  I love this because you can add so many thing to it. I love to add a 1 tsp of PB2 and a banana it will fill for a good amount of time. Or you can add strawberries, blueberries.. Go Fruit happy! My kids love it too because they like the texture the chia seeds give and they don't even know how awesome and healthy it is for them!

2- Hard Boiled Eggs: This is another one that you could do ahead of time just boil 1/2 dozen and have then ready to go when you need them. Again add a fruit (we love bananas here)  and your ready to grab and go!

3- Overnight Oatmeal: This you actually have to take a bit of time to put it together the night before but what is good is you could make a couple of servings and different variations that it's worth it. For us a favorite is : 1/2 cup of Almond milk, 1/2 cup of greek vanilla low fat yogurt,1/2 fast oatmeal, and  2 tsp of chia seeds. I love using mason jars which you could get at a craft store for pretty cheap and the kids love that they get to eat of the jars. There are plenty of recipes that you could create. It's fun to experiment with different fruits and recipes.

4. Yogurt and Granola : An oldie but goodie that never fails. Grab a yogurt and add some granola and it's yummy and so filling. I love this when especially to grab right before those early games the kids have. They eat it and get that extra boost of energy to play.


I hope these give you a few ideas and let you see that you don't need to have some elaborate meal planned to eat healthy. The most important thing is to make sure you do eat breakfast that will start you the right way to having a productive day!

What are some of your favorite go to breakfast you love and your family love?
