Breakfast for kids
I know how picky kids can be about food. I was the same way as a child. Something I love to do with kids is having them help out in the kitchen. Sometimes, when you have the time to let kids help in the kitchen, they enjoy food even more. Also, I believe exposing them to various ingredients and recipes will help you figure out what your kids like and don’t like. I know we all get into a routine of eating the same food over and over. Sometimes, try to mix it up!

- Pumpkin sheet pancakes

Cheap Breakfast Ideas
Eating healthy can be a challenge when you’re on a budget. When I was in college, I didn’t have as much money to buy groceries and especially not organic produce. Today, there are so many options. Like frozen produce that you can save for many months at a time. Tip: frozen produce is picked at peak ripeness. One of my favorite budget-friendly vegan breakfast recipes is my 3-ingredient oatmeal pancakes. You could skip the cinnamon and just make it with 2-ingredients.

- Chocolate “nice” cream
- Hash browns

Meal Prep Breakfast Ideas
I don’t know about you but I love watching meal prep videos. I get so much inspiration. Honestly, sometimes, I don’t do much with the inspiration. I’ve learned it’s best to start slow with meal prepping so it doesn’t become too overwhelming. So try meal prepping one recipe instead of five. Or try meal prepping a few ingredients for breakfast or dinner vs meal prepping breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For more tips on meal prep, watch my video by clicking here.

- Blueberry fig skillet cake
- Zucchini orange coconut yogurt scones
