Helthy Summer Breakfast: Overnight Soaked Oats

Oats are great for breakfast and snacking.  Soaking them overnight makes them much easier to digest and their nutrients are better absorbed by your body.

To prepare them just mix in a mason jar 5 table spoons of organic old-fashioned oats, a pinch of cinnamon, few drops of vanilla extract, 1 tbsp of chia seeds, and 1 cup of almond milk. You can sweeten it with stevia, maple syrup, coconut crystals, or lucuma powder. To finish, just top with berries.  Close the lid and place it in the fridge.  Keeps fresh for 3-5 days.

Veggie Scrambled Eggs for Toddlers

Veggie scrambled eggs are a great way of incorporating some greens into your toddler’s diet without any fuss.  You can play around with whatever veggies are in your fridge, just don’t overdo it if you have a picky eater.  The idea is to add more and more vegetables as he or she gets used to the taste.

I prepare mine with two eggs, olive oil, half a shredded tomato (cut it in half and shred one half leaving the skin out), 1 to 2 cups of spinach, a bunch of chopped broccoli florets, 2 spoons of ricotta cheese, and a dash of salt.  Pair it with a slice of Ezequiel’s sprouted whole grain bread and you get a highly nutritious breakfast for your little one.
