Healthy Breakfast - Attempt #1

This is my first attempt of a healthy breakfast for Christian. I tried to follow the guidelines that I outlined in yesterday's post, but I did not have any whole wheat in the house. We have a stash of Eggo's in the freezer so I toasted one, cut in in half and put some ham on it. I served it with orange wedges and milk. Christian was totally impressed and kept thanking me for such a good breakfast. It was too cute. He barely touched his milk though. He rarely drinks anything first thing in the morning... even weekends. While he was eating though I realized that we will definitely need to start getting up a little earlier to allow for breakfast time. I don't know if it has anything to do with breakfast or not but Christian did not seem as hungry for snacks when he got home from school today. We'll see if this becomes a new trend next week.

Aztec Blend

I was at the Bulk Barn last week and decided to try out one of their rice blends. It is Aztec Blend #1656. It includes colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, and amaranth. I had no idea what some of those ingredients were but figured anything's worth a try, right? When I got home I looked up colusari rice & amaranth. Colusari rice is a burgundy-colored chewy rice that has a light nutty-popcorn-like flavor and amaranth is actually an herb.

It was very simple to prepare & actually pretty good. The peas were a little crunchy which added nice texture. I was surprised that both kids really liked it.

Banna-Nutella Tortilla Wrap

While standing in the grocery store line last week I was flipping through a cooking magazine and came across this idea.  I thought it was the perfect after school surprise for Christian.

First I spread the nutella on a tortilla.

Then I put a peeled banana on it.

Rolled it up...

...and it was ready to eat.

Christian shared it with his little brother and they both gobbled it up.  A little messy... for Alexander especially, but worth it.

Raspberry Picking with Alexander

Two weeks ago we took Alexander raspberry picking.  He dressed up in long sleeves and pants to protect his legs from the raspberry vines and his rainy day boots in hopes of a puddle to splash in.
