Okay, so I’ve been thinking a lot about my breakfast options, partly because I’m pregnant and unmotivated (especially in the mornings!) and partly because I want good, healthy options, hopefully with more protein. I like variety and don’t want to spend too much time in the morning fixing food. We tend to eat pancakes, oatmeal, cereal or scones. Yep, we’re stuck in the grains! We don’t eat eggs really because my children and I get stomach aches often from *scrambled*eggs. I don’t know why. I read something about how scrambling eggs oxidizes them (whatever that entirely means ;-) ), so maybe that’s why?
This morning I made creamy maple oatmeal that originated from Martha Stewart’s site. I followed the recipe exactly last time and served it with the dried cherries too which was yummy. This time I just made a pot of oatmeal and doused it with some maple syrup and a bit of cream. Then I served it with raisins and glazed walnuts, instructions courtesy of my friend, Maegan. It turned out well, and everyone liked it. I was glad to add the raisins for more nutrients (especially iron since my iron is low right now) and also the walnuts for more, you got it!, PROTEIN! :-)
I hope to post more exciting breakfast ideas and recipes as I continue my journey!
