Breakfast used to be a production. When I was single and on my strict paleo, mostly organic diet, I would wake up at 4:30am on days that I worked at the hospital to ensure that I was able to make a 3-egg omelet or scramble with lots of sautéed veggies and topped with salsa and avocado, a large sausage patty, and a fruit/coconut milk smoothie.
Now? Yeah right, I’m not waking up at 4:30 in the morning to provide my family with a 3-course breakfast. These days, breakfast has to be 3 things: healthy, easy, and FAST. I also prefer the ability to make the breakfasts in bulk, because I do not like to wake up in the morning and start my day cleaning a skillet. Ain’t nobody got time for dat (especially since I like to wake up 30 minutes before I get to work).
Breakfasts in the Kintz home are generally muffins, granola and yogurt, cottage cheese and fruit, or hard boiled eggs. And coffee. Always coffee.
These are all things that I can prepare the night before and grab just as I leave. Peter and Tristan eat breakfast together after they drop me off at work, so their mornings are a bit more relaxed than mine, but they like the ease of a pre-made breakfast as well.
Once I settled into a routine of making breakfasts in bulk (and seriously, hard boiled eggs are the BEST breakfast to make – they are almost too easy), mornings got so. much. calmer. Seriously. It’s probably the best thing that’s ever happened to our mornings.
