BEST BREAKFAST ON THE PLANET

I’ve always been a coffee first everything else second kind of person.  I understand the virtues of breakfast and have experienced first hand the effects of not getting that first meal settled.  I’ve been searching for the perfect breakfast for years.  It has to be quick, easy to prepare and appetizing on repeat.  I think I might have just cracked the code.  Breakfast Parfait!

Breakfast Parfait

The foundation of a good parfait is the cereal. Granola is a family favorite but often too high in sugar to make it a daily addition.  I’m always in the market for a breakfast cereal that delivers on protein and fiber so it was with a small squeal I discovered a five-ingredient cereal I could include in my routine. Yes, FIVE INGREDIENTS:

  1. Organic quinoa
  2. Organic brown rice
  3. Chia seeds
  4. Organic brown rice syrup
  5. Salt

Normally, my rule is anything with more than 3 ingredients is processed. There are some exceptions in my pantry based on products made with care with organic whole ingredients.  I can feel good about serving it to my kids. Attune brought this cereal on the market this year and I love a brand that’s thinking about how to make more with less.

Attune Erewhon Quinoa Chia Cereal

Equally important is a quality yogurt. I enjoy the thicker, pro-biotic rich Greek style yogurt over traditional American varieties. I think my life can be divided into two parts: before Greek yogurt and after Greek yogurt.  For my family, it’s a staple in the kitchen, replacing sour cream on most occasions.  I prefer plain. Call me a control freak, but I’d rather add my own sugars (honey or maple syrup) and mix ins.

Fresh fruit completes the trio.  I’m partial to berries but any cut up fruit will make a fine parfait.  I like to drizzle a small amount of honey over the top, for visual satisfaction more than anything.  The combinations are endless as long as you have the right cereal and yogurt, a parfait is possible.

It’s a good thing.  I started homeschooling my kids this week for the first time.  There’s a huge learning curve for a first timer and I want to start off the morning with full bellies.  I’m trying to give them every attention and energy advantage I can since I’m now homeroom teacher.  An essential element of the best breakfast ever is the ability for everyone to be able to make it themselves. There’s no stove, no oven, no microwave necessary and the combination gives them over 18 grams of protein.  My kids love building their own and I’m confident it’s a great start to the day. At the very least, it’s better than coffee only.

 

Best Breakfast Parfait for Healthy Kids (and adults)

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I’m a Fage fan)
  • 1/2 cup Erewhon Quinoa and Chia Cereal (gluten free)
  • 1/4 cup blueberries, strawberries, grapes or bananas
  • 1 teaspoon drizzle of honey
  1. Start with a layer of yogurt on the bottom, about 2 Tablespoons worth.
  2. Layer in cereal and berries as desired.
  3. Top with the last dollop of yogurt then drizzle with honey.

Or just set out the ingredients and declare breakfast.

What’s your best breakfast?
