I spent a little time this afternoon perusing blogs and cookbooks and came up with this weekly breakfast menu. I'm quite positive that my kiddos are going to have a few issues, but I'm hoping that the "there are starving kids in Afria and I don't want to hear you complaining" speech will prevail. LOL Seriously though, since I've been back home from Sierra Leone, I'm a completely different parent....but that's another post.
I'm positive the kids, Jackson primarily, will have issues with a few things, but I'm going to plan on holding fast at least for a few weeks to see if I can persuade them. Nothing is horrible or anything they will completely hate, it just isn't what they are used to having.
The menu is grain free, except for Monday and Saturday, which will be a treat. Pancakes are the boys' all-time favorite breakfast, so I included it and I'm going to use it for bribery, if needed. I'll make them from scratch with organic flour - 1/2 all-purpose and 1/2 whole wheat. According to WAP, grains need to be soaked, so I'm going to try to figure that out at some point.
Eggs - Pastured and purchased from a local farm
Toast - Ezekiel for now, homemade sourdough or soaked later
Butter - Purchased at grocery for now, hopefully local, grassfed or homemade later
Honey - Local, raw
Fruit - Whatever is in season or organic frozen
Milk - Raw, purchased locally
Grain-free blueberry muffins with butter
Yogurt - Homemade from raw milk purchased locally
Vanilla & Honey to flavor yogurt
No-crust veggie fritatta
Nutty fruit cereal
Pancakes - made from scratch w/organic flour & aluminum-free baking powder, local honey, coconut oil
Pure Maple Syrup
I found these recipes on Organic & Thrifty via The Healthy Home Economist and also from Those Who Hunger. There are a few more breakfast recipes I want to try, but I think we'll try to adjust to these first before I bring on another batch.
