I was reading something the other day that mentioned that September is Better Breakfast Month. This made me very happy because I love breakfast. If you look on the sidebar and see that we have a category for Breakfast, go ahead and click on it. You will find that there are many posts there about breakfast, otherwise known as the most important meal of the day.
Today, for Friday Faves, we are going to run with this breakfast topic. But, I decided I needed to clarify something with my girls. I asked them, do they mean better tasting breakfast, or better for you. They answered "Both"! So, today there will be two categories for Better Breakfasts: Just Delicious and Good For You + Delicious!
Let's start with Good For You + Delicious:
When it comes to healthy breakfasts, I really do like oatmeal during the winter months. But, I see a lot of recipes lately for overnight oats that you can just grab and eat in the morning. The idea of cold oatmeal, not cooked, just does not sound appetizing to me. I like it hot with brown sugar or honey.
If you get the chance to sit down and have breakfast with your family a few times this month, I hope our Breakfast Category will give you some fun ideas. I forgot to mention Root Beer Pancakes! That one is fun and easy! I have a lot of memories centered around breakfast with my family. I think it is a shame that in this fast paced world, hardly anyone sits around the table and eats breakfast together anymore. Most school children are eating at school instead of at home with their families. I am not sure that those are "Better Breakfasts." I think that what truly makes a better breakfast is the time around the table with family, eating something delicious yet still healthy, spending time connecting as the day begins and sending our children out for the day with an encouraging, loving word. I know that it is hard with jobs and busy lives, but maybe even just on a Saturday morning we can keep this tradition alive!
Here is how I like to cook breakfast!
