3 Simple and Tasty Breakfast Ideas
Sometimes a family can get stuck in a breakfast rut. Sometimes we think we don’t have time to make a healthy breakfast, and sometimes we might even forgo breakfast all together.
To hopefully encourage you and inspire your breakfast menu, today I’m sharing 3 simple and tasty ideas.
Oatmeal is such a great breakfast choice because of the wide-variety of ways you can embellish this tasty, hearty meal. My family often enjoys peanut butter and fruit in their oatmeal.
Some other toppings and additions to consider are: honey, brown sugar, maple syrup, slivered almonds, canned pumpkin, and raisins. Preparing oatmeal in the microwave takes just a minute, so even in a time crunch, oatmeal is a simple option.
Eggs are a great way to start the day, and adding them to a burrito makes them portable.To create the burrito just scramble a couple eggs, season as desired, and then wrap them in a tortilla shell. Some tasty additions to this burrito can include: avocado, salsa, cheese, and crumbled sausage.
Does this sound too fancy? It’s not. It looks fancy, but it’s very easy and super delicious.
Pick your favorite yogurt and dish it into a bowl or cup. Then add some fruit like blueberries and strawberries. Sprinkle some granola on top the fruit. You can even add a little honey for a sweet kick.
I think any three of these breakfast choices will be crowd-pleasers in your family, so give 1 (or all) a try this week!

Rotary To Hold Pancake Breakfast
The Falmouth Rotary will hold its annual pancake breakfast Saturday, June 12 from 8am to noon at the Masonic Lodge on Main Street and Cape Cod Mommies is one of the Sponsors!
Tickets for the event are $6, are all you can eat and are available at the door. “Members of the armed services eat for free this year,” announced Rudy Hunter, breakfast chairman. “Rotary wants to honor those who serve our nation and this is just one small way to say thanks.” Rotary expects to raise more than $5000 for VIPS and other local charities from the proceeds from the pancake breakfast. “Advertising on breakfast place mats are sold out, and tickets sales are higher than last year. We fully expect to meet our $5,000 target.”
Visit Falmouth Rotary for more information or check out their Facebook page for announcements involving scholarships, RYLA, fundraisers, guest speakers, and more!
Healthy Toddler Breakfast Ideas
I love finding simple, healthy recipes for my toddler. I've posted many recipes before that incorporate sneaking veggies, protein and fruit into meals. I thought I would share some yummy breakfast ideas that are always a hit in my house. I swear, these recipes are super simple and easy to make.
Sweet Potato - Banana Pancakes
-Pancake Mix - I like Trader Joes's Multigrain Mix - Following directions on the box to make the mixture. ***I usually use a less liquid due to the purees being added
-1/2 cup Sweet Potato Puree
-1/2 cup Banana Puree

1 package of instant oats - I like Trader Joe's Oats and Flax
1/4 cup of Sweet Potato Puree

1 Tsp Peanut Butter
1/4 cup of Milk - Use whichever kind you enjoy. I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 small handful of raisins
Stir instant oats, flaxseed and sweet potato puree together with water - usually enough to cover oats. Place in microwave for 90 seconds. Stir in peanut butter. When everything is nicely blended add your milk. Top off with a handful
Cheesy Green Eggs with Toast Bites
1/4 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup spinach puree
1 slice whole wheat bread
Scramble 3 eggs, add spinach puree and cheese. Cook over medium heat.
