Breakfast at Katy’s
I will be the first to admit that mornings at my house can be chaotic. Getting a preschooler and a 9-month-old ready for school drop off can be quite the challenge. Now that we are rounding the corner to summer break, I know our mornings will become slightly more relaxed. But our days will soon fill up with warm weather activities. Having a filling breakfast can ensure that we have enough energy to keep up with our busy schedules.
What’s for Breakfast at the Gatewood’s?
Breakfast at our house it low key and includes lots of easy to prepare options. I don’t plan breakfast like I do our evening meal but I make sure there are a variety of options on hand for us to choose from. Some of our go-to items include pancakes, toast with peanut butter, smoothies, eggs, oatmeal, and muffins.
What’s for Breakfast at Christine’s House
Today I get to kick off a blog series all about ‘what’s for breakfast?’. Our Spend Smart. Eat Smart. bloggers will share some of their favorite breakfast dishes throughout the month of May. Sometimes breakfast does not get the attention that other meals do because we often eat it quickly on our way out the door. I know that is the case for me most days.
Flipping for Pancakes!
Pancakes, or as my preschooler used to call them ‘pam-papes’, are a fan favorite at our house. Below are the top 5 reasons why I am always on board when pancakes are requested for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Whole Wheat Pumpkin Pancakes
Fall baking season is in full swing! If you are anything like me, you spend summer counting down the days until there’s a chill in the air and you can break out those sweatshirts. Whether you like it warm or cold, we can all agree that fall brings wonderful flavors with it. One of my favorite fall memories is cooking in the kitchen with my dad.
Time for a Breakfast Recipe Round-up!
My husband and three-year old LOVE breakfast. As soon as they wake up, they head straight to the kitchen. During the work week, we don’t have as many opportunities to sit down as a family with a large breakfast, so we tend to opt for quicker options on those days. On the weekends I favor making recipes that require a few more ingredients and take additional time to prepare, especially if we are entertaining guests.
If You Do Not Eat Breakfast, Neither Will Your Children
There is research to back up the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Breakfast contributes to higher achievement, lower rates of absence and tardiness, increased concentration, fewer calories, and better nutrition for youth and adults. We also know that children learn from watching parents. It stands to reason that if you do not model eating breakfast; your children will not get the benefits either.
