A fast and easy breakfast that is packed with flavor and nutrition for those busy mornings!
One thing I have come to realize about myself of late is that while I would not exactly call myself a morning person, I am certainly a lot more pleasant in the mornings if I get enough sleep at night, and take a minute to take care of myself in the morning…you know, eat breakfast, get ready, etc.
But…and this is a big but…I am a mom. I am sure you know that about me by now, as it is one of the biggest things in my life. But the point here is that being a mom means very little time for me, especially in the mornings when we are rushing to get everyone off to school and out the door.
My needs kind of get left in the dust. Like the other day I was driving home from dropping my kids at school and had to pee so bad. I realized I was so hurried getting Lexi’s hair done, and Dillan’s homework signed, and Derrick’s socks matched that I never actually made it into the bathroom! When I was heading in someone mentioned the baby’s diaper was dirty, so that had to be attended to, and then it was time to go. The kids can’t be late!! So out the door we went.
Yes, I am that mom who drives to school in my yoga pants and yesterday’s hair and make-up, with unbrushed teeth just praying I don’t see anyone I know when I stop at the store (usually without my bra on) on the way home to grab whatever essential ingredient I am missing for that night’s dinner.
Anyway, I usually just skip breakfast because by the time I think about it I am full swing in the middle of the mile long to-do list, so it is easier to just wait for lunch, especially since I am not a big fan of breakfast food. But remember how I said I am nicer when I eat? Well, it is true!
So I have been looking for easy breakfast ideas that I actually want to eat but only take a few minutes to prepare. And this is my favorite one!!!
All I do is turn the oven on, cut the nectarine, cook it for about 5 minutes, usually while I am cleaning up the messes the kids left in their wake on the way out the door. Then I top with Greek yogurt, granola, and honey! Yum!
