Fruits Salad is so simple, no cooking skill is needed. It is so colorful, healthy and nutritious, a great breakfast choice, afternoon snack or serve it as a side. Kids love it so much, watch out they will eat yours too.
Since the first success with my crepe recipe, this easy and fast breakfast became my new favorite. We also started to drink more almond milk and soy milk, instead of regular 2% milk in the last few weeks, because I suspected Alexis is allergic to milk. Almond milk and soy milk are lower in calories and sugar content compare to 2% milk but loaded with lots of vitamins and taste great. That is how I come up with the coconut and blueberries crepes, like usual, create something healthy, easy and yummy out of my refrigerator.
It was Alexis big day yesterday. She is now 4.5 years old and passed the evaluation to move up to the next level in gymnastics school, which means her hard work and all those practices at home (she did it all by herself with anyone asked her to, what a self-motivated little one) had paid off. She was so proud of herself and so did mommy. She improved a lot within the last 2 weeks, even I was impressed. To celebrate her little milestone and show my support for her hard-working, I arranged a movie date with the girls (we watched Rapunzel), served them these girly and pretty pink kettle popcorn for snacks. Everyone had a good time and they said it was the best day ever.
Most fruits are in season now. Since I tried out homemade blueberries jam last time, the girls has asked me to make some new favors. Peaches and fresh blueberries are on sale for the last few weeks, so I mix the two summery fruits together and make this easy, healthy and super tasty homemade peaches and blueberries jam. For the same cost, you will enjoy this yummy goodness in 15 minutes.
Don’t know what to do with those leftover roasted chicken from last night? Add a little fresh vegetables and some simple sauces to make a quick stir-fly dish, you can have a yummy and healthy dish within 15 minutes. This dish will taste extra good if you cook with a sizzling hot raw cast iron wok (even my husband can taste the difference). Serve this stir-fly broccoli and chicken with steam rice, fried rice or lo mein (a popular Chinese noodles), a meal in 30 minutes is done.
Quick and easy is very important for my breakfast routine because my little girls usually want to eat right away in the morning. I used to buy a lot of cereals, even though most of them are whole grains cereals, there are some ingredients I rather my children not to consume in a daily basis.
So I have been coming up with something homemade, tasty, easy and nutrition dense. The most convenient breakfast is – Fresh Fruit Smoothie. All you need is a blender (food processor work fine too), wash the fruits and add all ingredients, sugar is optional, a healthy breakfast drink is done in 5 minutes.
