In all seriousness, I am hypoglycemic and if I don't eat often, I feel miserable. So, I never skip a meal. I am a picky breakfast-eater though. I would really just like to eat donuts, cookies, and pastries everyday but then I wouldn't be able to call this blog "Little Mommy." When you think of healthy breakfast choices, many people think of oatmeal and yogurt as being a sound choice. While they have their health benefits, they are often loaded with sugar, or sugar substitutes. So, I'd like to share two simple, and healthy breakfast choices that help to fix my sweet tooth most mornings. (When my sweet tooth is too large - O'DoodleDoo's Donuts are soooo yummy ...just once in awhile) ;)
Little Mommy's Quick and Easy Yogurt Parfait
1 1/2 c. of plain fat free (regular) yogurt
1/2 c. granola (I like BareNaked Peak Protein)
1/4 c. frozen organic blueberries (I leave them frozen as it makes for an interesting change in texture.)
1-2 tbsp. (more or less) of Agave
I mix this together in an empty coffee mug, or small glass container and eat it as I'm headed to work. Who says there isn't time for a healthy and satisfying breakfast?
Little Mommy's Oatmeal
1/2 c. of Quaker oats
1 c. water, or skim milk
Microwave for 1 min. 30 sec.
Add in 1/2 - 1/4 c. walnuts
1 tbsp. or more of organic brown sugar
2 tbsp. Craisins
For a little twist - use brown sugar, a tbsp or more of canned pumpkin, and apple pie or pumpkin pie spice. Yumm!
Enjoy these two breakfast "treats" without the guilt of the prepackaged sweeteners and artificial colors. Best dishes and yummy dreams!
