The biggest issue for me in the morning is time. Between me not having a lot of it in the morning and the time it takes my little ones to eat (Kenya can nurse a bowl of cereal for what seems like an eternity), I have to make things that are reasonably simple, but still loaded with as much nutrition as possible. I like to keep several recipes on hand for breakfasts in 5 minutes or less. For those mornings that I’m already running around like a mad woman, these recipes are life savers! You can throw these together in no time, and still have enough time to sit around the table together and enjoy your breakfast. You can just as easily take some of these breakfasts to go.
What’s your favorite family breakfast?

We're big Greek yogurt eaters in my house. Greek yogurt is packed with protein, calcium and most contain natural probiotics which are great for our digestive health and can even boost our immune systems. Combine it with two other super foods like blueberries and walnuts, omega-3 and fiber-packed flax seeds, and a few other naturally sweet ingredients like apples and honey and you've got a true power breakfast
that will give your body and mind a big boost first thing in the morning -- when you need it most.
