It’s important to start your day off right with a healthy breakfast. This quick and easy breakfast is all natural, organic and the cereal is gluten-free.
My Mom and Grandma always told me that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Because of that, my family rarely skips breakfast and when we do, we usually regret it. I think one of the problems these days is that people think they are too busy to eat breakfast and now many of the schools are providing free breakfast for the kids. Honestly, that is GREAT to feed the ever growing, ever hungry kiddos, but in my mind, the responsibility to feed my children a healthy breakfast, lies with me. They eat the breakfast at school as basically a snack but I can send them off knowing I’ve given them something nutritious that will provide the best possible start to their day.
There are so many very healthful options that do not require a lot of preparation. Cereal has often gotten a bad rap, Kashi has done a great job to change that, not only making breakfast cereals that are packed full with organic whole grains, fruits, and fiber; they also have gluten free options as well. We absolutely love Silk Almond or Cashew milk as a delicious, creamy, dairy-free option to pour over Kashi cereal. Silk also offers delicious dairy free chocolate milk which is an added occasional treat with the breakfast meal.
Not only is Silk delicious in the morning, we use it throughout the day in our recipes. The Sweet and Spicy Veggie Wings were a hit, and if you have a little more time in the morning, whip up this Ham and Broccoli Quiche.
My kids are like any other kids and get bored of the same thing every single day. To prevent this, I like to mix up the breakfast options with Noosa brand yogurt. The flavors are outstanding and my kids love mixing in the fresh fruit puree. Sometimes, we even sprinkle a little of the Kashi cereal on the yogurt for added crunch.
When we are running out the door on the weekends, I will bring along a few Kashi Chewy Granola Bars if we are going to be gone a while in between meals. There are a variety of flavors and provide a satisfying snack.
Have you seen the new Natural Food section at Kroger? We have been working hard this year on eating better, exercising and over all better health with our morning routine. For many, many years, the cost of organic and natural food was just far too expensive for our budget. But lately we have been noticing more and more products available at a reasonable price. If you haven’t noticed the Natural Food section, I challenge you to give it a try.
Here is the best part, all of these delicious items can be found at your local Kroger store in the Natural Foods Department as part of their Nature’s Market Breakfast offer. Not only that, but if you purchase three items that are Silk, Kashi, or Noosa brand, during October 14th-October 27th you will receive one dozen Simple Truth (Cage Free) Eggs absolutely FREE. It doesn’t get much better than that! You must have your Kroger Loyalty Card with you, upon scanning items.
Hurry in, because this offer will be up soon.
