Lately, we’ve fallen into some bad breakfast-time habits at my house. We’ve been relying on frozen waffles (albeit whole grain) and rich buttery scones from our local baker WAY more often that we should. Chalk it up to a generally-overbooked schedule, coupled with end-of-the-school year chaos. But it’s clearly time for us to break out of the overly-sweetened-refined-carb rut.
The nutritional key for breakfast is to eat a combination of high-quality protein and fiber. This magical duo helps give everyone long-lasting energy and helps to keep moods and behaviors more balanced (hurray for good moods!). The practical key for breakfast is “no morning prep required.”
This recipe for Mini Broccoli Frittatas with Turkey Bacon is both nutritious and practical. The eggs provide high-quality protein, which is key to helping you and your kiddos feel satisfied. The broccoli is rich in filling fiber and health-promoting antioxidants. If your kids aren’t using to seeing anything green at breakfast time, use less broccoli than the recipe calls for; then add a bit more the next time you make it.
And even though this recipe takes about 20 minutes to make, you can easily make them ahead of time, freeze them, then quickly defrost one (or more) for breakfast.
