This week's recipe comes from Cynthia over on the What A Girl Eats blog. Cynthia has a great collection of healthy recipes (and indulgent ones) over on her blog that are definitely worth exploring! You can find Cynthia on Facebook, follow her on Twitter and Instagram, and check out her Pinterest boards!
With the start of the school year, morning times can get pretty hectic trying to get everyone dressed, fed, backpacks packed, and out the door in time. This recipe developed by Cynthia is a great choice for a quick breakfast packed full of flavor and protein for the busy weekday mornings. Pair the Mexican egg cups with a piece of fruit and a glass of water or milk and you have a balanced breakfast. The little cups are a perfect way to portion out servings for kids, big or small, and adults too!
August is Kids Eat Right month and we think of it as a time to share ideas and tips to help kids learn about balanced healthy eating. They don’t need to learn to be perfect eaters who love vegetables (who is really?) but instead to teach them how to enjoy all types of food and learn about balance and moderation. The Kids Eat Right logo and campaign went through a very public debate earlier in the year with the announcement and subsequent withdrawal of a Kids Eat Right seal being printed on foods, initially starting with Kraft cheese. I’m not going to decry the action here but rather point out that the mission of Kids Eat Right is a good one, one that we can all get behind.
