10 Days of Real Food–What’s for breakfast?

We have enjoyed our 1st week of our Real Food Pledge!  Here is a glimpse of what breakfast looked like for us this week…CIMG0378CIMG0379

Scrambled eggs w/veggies, grapefruit, whole wheat toast w/cream cheese for Goose and fruit spread for Crew and about 4oz of fresh squeezed OJ.


Overnight Oats….one of my favorites and super quick for those busy mornings. Oh yes, and my cup of coffee with whole milk.

Whole milk and full fat yogurt in a low/non fat world?  Have we gone nuts?  We are cutting out processed foods and are TRYING to eat food as close to natural as possible.  Will post on this subject another time. I love it in my coffee….mmmmm creamy!


Plain Greek (whole fat) yogurt topped with blueberries, dried cranberries, walnuts and chia seeds 

Okay, so I must say I wasn’t sure how whole fat or plain yogurt was going to go over with the kiddos.  Whole fat is a thicker texture and plain….well, can be a bit sour (is that the right word?)  They love the low-fat Greek yogurt with the fruit already in it Winking smile  Well, I bought a huge tub (which was way cheaper) of the plain full fat and thought I would give it a try.  They loved it!  They love to choose their different toppings (You know makes them feel like they are in control.)  Turns out this is one of their favorites now and they love to have this for a snack too!


Oatmeal with diced up apples, walnuts, chia seeds and cinnamon


Our new kind of cereal Winking smile  Whole grain corn puffs…..$1.49 a bag! Crew had his w/dried cranberries and a sprinkle of granola and Goose had hers with blueberries.


Whole wheat pancakes with flax and blueberries topped with peanut butter and 100% pure maple syrup.  So yummy!  Double the batch and freeze some for later in the week.
