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.
