Cinnamon Nut Oatmeal

Cinnamon Nut Oatmeal

Often we eat eggs for breakfast but on the days where my son eats very little, I try and spice up the calorie intake for him with protein and nuts. A good hearty breakfast is important for our bodies. We often do not start our days off in a correct manner with a well-rounded breakfast. I’ve noticed on days such as today when we are rushing out the door and all I eat is a granola bar for breakfast, I tend to get a migraine a couple of hours later. I have trained my body to eat a healthy breakfast and when it doesn’t receive this, my body simply gets mad at me and puts me down with a migraine. Literally putting me down. :( This sad state needs to end and it all began because of a lack of nutrients for breakfast. It’s important to eat breakfast even if you aren’t a “morning” person. You can train yourself to eat good food and not a lot of it to stay healthier.

Enough of my bossy mom instincts telling you as if you are my child, to eat your breakfast. You all know I love you deeply right?

Anyway, as of lately my son has been into watching the movie Cars. He hates TV otherwise. So our morning routine begins with him snuggling on the couch watching cars while I prepare breakfast. This has been a great way to feed him and actually get him to consume calories as well as him allowing my to snuggle my sweet baby. I’m not sure if it’s the distraction from watching the movie or the comfort of sitting on the couch all snuggled up rather then at the table. In either case, he has his whole life to sit at the table and I will take every opportunity to stuff his body full of calories since it’s almost impossible to keep the pounds on this little rascal.
