Convenient Real Food Breakfasts
Do you ever feel like you spend all of your time in the kitchen?
This can especially be true when you are aiming to eat Real Food.
Some days the last thing you want to do is cook yet you feel the weight and importance of feeding your family good stuff.
For us, breakfasts can be the most difficult challenge for sticking to Real Food, especially if we don’t plan ahead. One of the things we don’t really eat any longer is cereal. I will purchase the occasional box of organic cereal from the grocery store. Otherwise, our breakfasts consist of many of the things listed below.
Here are a few of our favorite go-to breakfasts (many of them take 15 minutes or less!)
Hard boiled Eggs and sprouted grain/whole grain English muffins
Scrambled Eggs and bacon/sausage (preferably from a pastured, organic farm)
Scrambled Eggs in tortilla shells, topped with cheese
Egg and Sausage Casserole (make the night before and bake in morning)
Tips: I save the bacon/sausage fat in a little covered jar by my stove and use it to grease the pan when making scrambled/fried eggs. Yum!
Soak your regular oats (not quick oats) in milk and lemon juice (or whey/yogurt) overnight in the pan you are going to cook it in. Then in the morning, it cooks in about 5 minutes. We serve with a dallop of butter or coconut oil, and with bowls of other topping choices such as organic raisins and sucanat, so everyone can add their own.
Tips: There is a good recipe over at The Nourishing Gourmet for a Soaked Oatmeal.
HOMEMADE WAFFLES and/or PANCAKES
This is easy to make ahead in large batches. Then freeze them to pop in toaster on busy days. And of course, put some real maple syrup on top. Or experiment with other toppings like fresh organic berries and real, homemade whipped cream. Here’s our recipe for Homemade Pancakes!
Tip: Some sausage or bacon on the side help ramp up the protein count so you aren’t hungry again in an hour!
Granted, this doesn’t take 15 minutes to make, but it takes WAY less than that to put some in a bowl and add some raw milk. Here’s my recipe for Soaked Homemade Granola
