These options are also toddler approved!

1. Avocado Toast

Avocados are a daily staple in my household (great source of Vitamin E and natural fats). We love to toast Dave’s Killer Bread and then add a small layer Dijon mustard for extra flavor. Smash your avocado in a bowl and spread on top of the toast. Sprinkle with Himalayan pink salt, pepper, and add any toppings you enjoy: hemp seeds. sesame seeds, parsley, cilantro, sliced cherry tomatoes, the possibilities are endless! 

AWH Tip: Keep your avocados out on the counter until they are the perfect ripeness, and then store in the fridge for future use. 

2. Non-Dairy Yogurt Bowls

My favorite brand of non-dairy yogurt is So-Delicious, unsweetened. The toppings are the best part. I usually sprinkle in some homemade granola, fresh organic berries (raspberries and blueberries are staples), cinnamon, and then my daughter loves to add lots of chia seeds…antioxidants + Omega-3’s = a mommy win for breakfast!

As an added treat we also sometimes add Love Majka Lactation bites – I used them my whole nursing journey. The ingredients are clean and they are so delicious we still enjoy them to this day. 

AWH tip: My favorite homemade granola is from Dr. B’s Fiber Fueled Cookbook. I add chia seeds before I bake and make a fresh batch every week to store in the fridge. If homemade is not an option then I recommend Purely Elizabeth granola products. 


3. Smoothie

My smoothies vary depending on what flavor profile I desire (mint chocolate, peanut butter/banana, mango mix, etc.) , and what veggies/berries are in the freezer. However, the consistent ingredients are always: a splash of plant-based milk, ice, either a handful of spinach or frozen zucchini, TB of nut butter, cacao nibs, chia seeds and frozen berries. For a protein boost I sometimes add chocolate Ka’Chava (delicious). Recipes to come…

AWH Tip: I always sprinkle a little granola on top for extra crunch. It makes the smoothie feel more like a meal vs. drink. 

4. Vegan Waffles

Follow Jessica in the Kitchen for the BEST vegan waffles. We make these weekly – and sometimes as a breakfast for dinner;) Always top with berries for antioxidant, immunity and fiber support.

AWH tip: If you enjoy syrup, I recommend using pure maple syrup, which contains antioxidants and is lower on the glycemic index (i.e. helps to maintain your blood glucose levels). 

5. Oatmeal

Good old fashioned oatmeal is a high fiber dish and winter staple in our home. We add organic berries, cinnamon (for gut biodiversity), sprinkle a little chia and flaxseed and viola, an easy, yummy breakfast the whole family can enjoy! We’ve been feeding this to our daughter since she could start solids.
