30 Recipes to Revamp Your Breakfast {The Real Food Way}

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? So, why not treat it as such? It’s not like it’s complicated to make a delicious and quick real food breakfast that everyone can enjoy. Anyone can do it, as long as they aspire to make breakfast something special. In case you haven’t noticed, breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day to me, but it’s definitely my favorite. I don’t mind waking up at 5 o’ clock in the morning to make an delicious and healthy breakfast that I know will be super amazing! Nor do I mind starting something a day or two ahead of time. In fact, I’d rather do both of those things if it meant my family wouldn’t be eating Captain Crunch or Poptarts.

Menu Plan // January 2014

It’s a new year! Maybe your resolution this year is to eat healthier. I know mine is! This year I want to get into recreating the highly processed and unhealthy foods and learning all about sourdough and kefir. This month’s menu plan does not use many fruits mainly because they are not in season locally. If you’re viewing this menu plan in, say, summer or autumn, it’s perfectly fine to use fresh fruits in place of some of the side dishes.

Menu Plan // January 2014

This menu plan is one where you can test your skills in the kitchen to make the ingredients needed to put together things like burritos and tuna salad sandwiches. You can get a whole wheat bread recipe here, a tortilla recipe here, and a pita bread recipe here. You’ll love how versatile this menu plan is. You can easily switch Monday’s dinner for Wednesday’s dinner or Friday’s breakfast for Tuesday’s breakfast (I think you get the idea).

Eating real food as a snack is an great way to boost your child’s diet. After a while of choosing item’s off of the list, you can usually narrow them down to about 15 that your family agrees are their favorites. Once at that point, you can still throw in a few surprises along the way, just to try again for maybe snacks that could be healthier than their favorites.
