It's time for back to school! I want to help you make this sometimes difficult and emotional transition easier and a better experience you and your kiddos. From what I've found, when kids are feeling physically healthy, rested and strong they handle the transition and emotions that going back to school can cause much better.
Here are some tips to make that transition easier....
Easy, quick and healthy breakfast ideas...
Eggs! any style...scrambled, fried, poached, sunny side up, hard boiled, soft boiled, in an omelet! Tip: add some fresh microgreens, spinach or kale on top, as a bed, or in the middle for a veggie boost! I use avocado oil for my high heat cooking
Avocado toast on gluten free or traditionally fermented bread such as Base Culture Bread. Top with whatever your kiddos like such as an egg, garlic, or fresh herbs. Or serve with a side of chicken sausage for a protein boost!
Smoothies! My favorite way to get my kiddos to eat all the colors of the rainbow! Add in a scoop of protein powder to your smoothie. My favorite over the counter protein powder brands are Sprout living or Nutiva.
3 INGREDIENT PANCAKES (recipe below):
2 eggs, 1/2 cup ricotta cheese, 1/2 tsp baking soda - mix it all together to make a batter. Heat your pan with avocado oil (or other high heat oil such as coconut) and cook like regular pancakes! tip: I will sometimes add a little oil to the batter to prevent sticking. You can also add fruit to these pancakes such as bananas or berries. ***These are not dairy free
