Whether you’re trying to get something healthy into your kids’ bellies before they dash out the door to catch the school bus, or you’re attempting to feed your baby/pack his bag for daycare/take a conference call/flat-iron your hair all at the same time, one thing is certain: if you’re a mom, you need a few super-quick, healthy breakfast ideas in your back pocket.
That’s a wrap! End dieting frustration with a fruit-stuffed, protein-packed breakfast made with this season’s star berries. But before you break out the whole-wheat tortillas, take a peek at the ingredients list. The crepe-like blanket snuggling all that sweetness isn’t made from flour. Fluffy, flavorful and diet-friendly, it’s a combination of low-fat, high-energy morning favorites whisked and baked in a creative way.

Think: breakfast smoothies, homemade nut butters, creamy sauces, savory soups.
So you’ve decided to try quinoa. What can you do with it? A better question might be—what can’t you do with it?! Quinoa is a versatile grain-like “seed” that cooks up light and fluffy, with a slightly nutty, mild flavor. It can be used just like rice, as a side dish or combined with other ingredients to create a pilaf or even a main course. I like to make a couple of cups at a time and use my cooked quinoa in various recipes throughout the week. Here are a few of my favorites.
