I don’t know about you, but breakfast can be the hardest meal for me to plan. The first disadvantage is that it’s in the morning. How are you supposed to fix something nice (and nourishing!) when everyone is running around getting ready for the day? Secondly, the meal can’t be late, like dinner, since there is a definite deadline to when Joel needs to leave (or when I have a student coming). Thirdly, it has to be put together quickly.
These are all obstacles, but there are some delicious options that easily overcome them, and I am sure you know some of them. Let’s share!
On April the 16th, I will be hosting a carnival for everyone to share their favorite nourishing breakfast foods! Share recipes, tips, links, and stories. If breakfast really is the most important meal of the day, let’s do it right by starting the day out healthy.
To Keep Things Centered on “Real Food” avoid the following in the recipes you share:
Any type of Boxed Cereal (unless you find a sprouted one)
White or Brown Sugar
Include Plenty of:
And other real food items!
I can’t wait to see what you all have to share. Please feel free to spread the word about the carnival and you are all welcome to use the carnival image as well. See you on the 16th!
Update: As requested here is a little more information about how the carnival works. On the day of the carnival (in this case, the 16th) everyone gets to share their tips and recipes for the theme (breakfast foods in this case). If you are a blogger, you can post your ideas/recipes on your blog, linking to the carnival post and leaving a comment or sending me an email telling me you have something to share. I will then update my carnival page to include a link to your post. If you aren’t a blogger, then you can leave your recipes and tips in the comment section of that post. Check out my last carnival to see what it looks like. Hope that clears up the confusion and I will see you then!
