Quiche Even My Kids Like

This is a quiche even my kids like because it contains two of their favorite ingredients–cheese and bacon. It’s quick to put together and pop in the oven before the kids are even up. It’s not an everyday breakfast,just a nice treat and change up to our regular menu. 1 frozen pie crust, do not thaw 4 oz shredded cheese of your choice, more if you like 4 slices of cooked and crumbled turkey bacon 3 large eggs 1 1/2 {Read More}

Better Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats

When I began my quest to break away from the cold cereal rut, oatmeal was a natural choice.  I started my family out with unsweetened instant oatmeal, adding a little bit of cinnamon and all-natural applesauce to taste. This was healthier than the instant flavored oatmeal that they preferred, but I am trying to get away from so many processed foods and instant oatmeal is highly processed.  I noticed that they didn’t have the “staying power” that I was looking {Read More}

Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits

If you’re not from the South or have relatives from here, you may have not heard of chocolate and biscuits.  It’s sweet, delicious, dangerous, and leaves chocoholics wanting more. A true Southern delicacy. Forget Nutella on croissants–this puts that to shame! Start breakfast off right by popping the biscuits in the oven to cook and start some sausage on the stove. Biscuits are best homemade, but I’ll let you in on a secret. Pillsbury’s Southern style buttermilk biscuits are easy {Read More}

Better Breakfasts: Frozen Yogurt

Two years ago I started baking my own bread, and my concept of a healthy meal changed radically. I realized that my family was eating a whole lot of processed food, and I began to think about replacing more than just our white bread. One of the last bastions to fall has been our cold cereal breakfasts.  I am not a morning person, so my quest to “reinvent breakfast” had to fit the following criteria:  it had to be simple, {Read More}

Better Breakfasts: Kefir

  Our family recently discovered Kefir in our search for better breakfasts.  My husband and I used to drink it when we lived in Eastern Europe, so I recognized the taste even though I didn’t recognize the name. Kefir is known to be one of the top 10 superfoods.  It is a natural, highly effective probiotic.  Traditional Kefir contains more probiotic “friendly bacteria” than yogurt, and its bacteria are able to colonize in the gut, making it far superior to {Read More}
