February is hot breakfast month which gives us an opportunity to explore some recipes that are hot and maybe healthy too! Since February is typically cold outside and its dark when we wake up, how refreshing would it be to make a quick hot breakfast to start your day! I have compiled a few easy recipes to whip up with the kids or have them make it!
For the super easy and on the go hot breakfast:
Eggo’s and Bacon
Heat up Eggo’s in the toaster oven. Heat up Costco pre-cooked bacon in the microwave. Serve with fresh fruit and juice! It may not be the most healthy but it is something the kids can make if desired and its ready in minutes!
Southwestern Egg Sandwich
Eggs offer a great protein and contain important nutrients such as choline, which research shows may enhance brain health and memory.
Ingredients: Whole-grain English muffin. Egg. Avocado. Salsa. Salt. Pepper.
To Make: Toast a whole-grain English muffin. Meanwhile, spray a small ceramic or glass bowl with cooking spray and crack one egg into it. Microwave on high for @ 1 minute, or until cooked to your liking. Spread ¼ of a mashed avocado on the toasted English muffin. Top with cooked egg, 2 tablespoons salsa, and salt and pepper, to taste. Wa la!
Oats are a whole grain, low in saturated fat, low in cholesterol, naturally gluten-free and a good source of fiber. The fiber in oatmeal can help lower cholesterol levels and reduce risk of cardiovascular disease.
