Make A Healthy Breakfast

This Make A Healthy Breakfast post is brought to you by the Mushroom Council and Global Influence.  All opinions are mine and  mine alone.

I try to make a healthy breakfast for everyone in the morning.  During the week, this can present a challenge.  The kids have to rush off to school and don’t have time for a sit down breakfast.  It’s not easy to grab a bowl of oatmeal as you’re heading out to wait for the bus.  I want to be able to make a healthy breakfast that’s also portable and delicious.  I don’t generally buy breakfast pastries.  While they are portable, they are rarely healthy. A piece of fruit, while healthy, isn’t really very filling for breakfast.

Make a healthy breakfast

One of the ways that I make a healthy breakfast for the kids and myself is by making egg and mushroom burritos.  The kids can grab theirs to go on the way to school.  I can sit down and enjoy mine with a cup of coffee.

I don’t like having meat for breakfast. It’s not only expensive but I don’t want the added fat and calories it adds to a meal.  Mushroom’s texture makes it a great substitute for meat.  They are very affordable, always in season and it’s a great way to get an extra serving of vegetables into the kids without them noticing what I’m doing. Mushrooms are a natural source of vitamins D and B and a rich source of antioxidants.

  7. My idea of a healthy breakfast has always been not eating poptarts :) I might need to kick it up a notch. Thanks for the idea. 

  8. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day. I often eat breakfast for supper too.

  9. We love making Egg Burtitos here at our house. Ours aren’t usually very healthy though. Your looks great.

  10. I love everything about these burritos! In this house, they’re more likely to show up on the “brinner” menu, though. Thanks for the post.

  11. I love breakfast foods that area easy and quick to prepare but taste like they took awhile! ;)

  12. Looks good, and it’s breakfast time so I’m hungry! LOL

  13. This sounds so good yet simple. I must substitute something else for the mushrooms though – For some reason, I don’t eat them at all :)
