Breakfast, why do you come so early in the day? Pretty much as soon as their feet touch the floor in the morning, my boys are “starving” and ready to eat.
My brain is barely working at this point so some times are breakfasts are kind of boring. However, it is super important to me that my boys get a filling breakfast that is also nutrient dense. They need their bodies fueled for a full day of school and play.
When you are avoiding gluten and grains, this can be a bit more challenging, but it still doable.

This is why we totally love eggs. Farm fresh eggs are a great source of protein and good fats to keep growing bodies nourished.
I’m also a big fan of getting as many vegetables into our diet as we can, this often means we have some with breakfast.
I know that sounds like extra work, but it totally isn’t. Do you want to know my secret? I do a big batch of veggies about once or twice a week to throw into our eggs. I often use what is on sale and then fry them all up at once. I store them in the refrigerator and scoop some out every morning to add to our eggs.
Yes, it is that easy to get a serving of veggies in before you hit the door running each morning.
One of our favorites is a fiesta egg scramble. My kids love Mexican food night and so we started doing the same “feel” for our breakfasts. It’s a total hit and it really fuels my kid’s bodies.
Depending on what is in the house these eggs get served with a side of salsas, guacamole, hot sauce, and sour cream. Everybody gets to pick what they like and it’s a win for everyone!
