On Sunday mornings, we like to have a big breakfast/brunch type of deal – eggs, turkey or chicken sausage, toast (with maybe a little of Ethel’s delicious honey on that), fruit salad and tea.
Yesterday, I made an omelet. I used to make them all the time when the kids were home – a big one with, like, 8 eggs. They loved it – with all kinds of fillings – and making them a lot keeps you in practice. Flipping practice. Well, it appears I am seriously out of practice. Just check out this photo – not a pretty sight. But, it tasted good! I filled it with provolone and cheddar cheeses, some finely chopped raw red pepper, fresh grape tomatoes and a chiffonade of basil. It was tasty, but time consuming. And, it makes a mess! (Although pictured here, the garlic was NOT in our omelet.)
Now if you want a healthy breakfast in a flash, check out these good folks at Mix My Own Healthy Breakfast. It’s a husband and wife team with a neat concept. You literally choose what you want to go into your custom mix of cereal, with tons of healthy, organic options to choose from. They asked me to mix my own cereal and review their product. I chose oats, goji berries, raw almonds, walnuts, wheat germ, bran, spelt and barley flour flakes along with quinoa, acai powder, blueberries and a whole host of healthy things. I don’t really eat cereal with milk anymore, mainly because the kids are gone and we don’t have milk around. But, I do love to put cereal on my plain low fat Greek yogurt and then drizzle a little honey on top. That’s a real energizer in the morning!
Mix My Own has tons of things to choose from (it can be dizzying) and they keep track of your combination so you can easily order it again, because who could remember? Fortunately, if you are overwhelmed and find making decisions tough, you can also order pre-mixed versions such as gluten-free or antioxidant varieties. The end resulting product is delicious, although depending on your ingredient choices, it can be pricey. They ship nationwide and my one-pound bag, with shipping, was just under $20. If you love cereal or granola-type things, visit their website and create your own combo. It’s a good thing!
