Simple Breakfast Make it Count.

I am a mother first and always.  I love being at my children's school as a volunteer and room mom.  Today, I needed to be at the school right as it opened and things where a little chaotic at home.  I needed to make breakfast, lunches, make sure everyone was ready, but with less time than normal.  As a mom moving in all directions would you have stopped and made sure you ate breakfast?  Most moms would have grabbed a coffee mug and ran out the door with the kids.  This is normal and happens everyday.  We are super mom's and we will take care of ourselves later.  Let's change that.  Take a few minutes and make sure you start your day off right as well.  Here was the breakfast I had this morning.  It was supper simple and I made it as I made the kids lunches. 

Newman's Own Organics Prunes                                                                       
Clementine slices
handful full of grapes
palm full of almonds

While I sent the kids to get their socks and shoes on I sat down and ate my simple breakfast.  It is loaded in fiber, natural sugars, and vitamins.  I was full, satisfied. and ready for a run when I get home.   So often I am tempted to quickly eat my food, standing at that, and rushing along.  It really takes a mental note to say "Kelley, sit down and chew your food".  Let's face it moms are always on the go, so make the most out of your food choices.  Fill your tank right so you have the energy and patience for all your super mom demands of you.

I have to say that I love the Newman's Own Organic prunes.  These are delicious, sweet, a great snack, and don't forget to add them to your meal.  Today I used them in my breakfast, because I wanted a little of my Scotland experience.  While in Scotland every morning I had dried plumes and grapefruit along with my breakfast.
