Break the breakfast rut

One of my favorite snacks/desserts is yogurt with fruit. For the past 2 months I started getting Nature Box snacks delivered and the variety has been fun to incorporate. I tend to lean toward sweet over spicy/salty when I snack, so to keep my hand out of the cookie jar (figuratively speaking) I need to have healthy alternatives. Yesterday I swapped snack for breakfast and it was delicious, fast, and filling I actually skipped snack and wasn't hungry until lunch.

 Yogurt Parfait

In this breakfast :
To kick of our summer vacation, the first Monday I didn't have to get up at 6am and make breakfasts and lunches and hound everyone out the door, we all slept in. Oh sure I have a summer bucket list of all the things to pack our summer full of fun, but today was just a relax and go with it kind of day. So while the wee ones enjoyed their cereal I whipped up an easy crustless quiche and popped in a yoga DVD while it baked. I can't say it enough I love summer!

 Crustless Spinach and Kale Quiche

  • Crustless Quiche
    • Preheat oven to 350
