In wintertime, our breakfasts are usually rich and hearty fare, perfect for frosty mornings and stormy days. In springtime, breakfast takes on a celebratory note as family and friends gather around a morning table set with fresh cut flowers, mimosas and lighter fare. Veggie frittatas, luscious eggs benedict, smoothies, berry filled waffles and pancakes celebrate the season.
So, what makes the perfect breakfast meal? While it’s easy to turn to quick box of cereal or sugary bag of donuts, these often leave family members feeling logy, ready for a nap and, for some, just a wee bit constipated. Breakfast meals centered around hearty grains and breads, usually leave everyone feeling full, satisfied and energetic. Food For Life’s Ezekiel 4:9® bread is a perfect alternative. Rather than flour, it’s made from the sprouts from six grains and is rich in flavor, high in protein and fiber, and loaded with nutrients.
While we love bacon (who doesn’t?), Springtime encourages leaner cuts of meat and other proteins, such as chicken and apple sausages, yogurt, smoothies or simply toast swathed in almond butter or avocado.
Of course, the perfect way to end a springtime brunch is with fresh fruit and a citrus beverage. If you struggle with acid sensitivity, Prelief® can help. 2-3 caplets with your first bite/sip can help reduce the acid in your favorite breakfast selections!
