It’s National Breakfast Month! Today on Good Food Friday, I shared my easy and nutritious options for weekday and weekend morning.
A Breakfast that makes itself
These Overnight Oats are made with delicious and nutritious California Figs, which are full of fiber and flavor. Just 3 to 5 dried or fresh figs meet nearly 20% of your total daily fiber needs, a nutrient that many Americans fall short on. California Fresh figs are available now through November so scoop them up when you can but you can also get your fig fix year-round with California Dried Figs in the produce or dried fruit aisle. In a large mixing bowl mix together 1/2 cup of rolled oats, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/3 cup of plain low fat yogurt, 1 tbsp of chia seeds and 2 chopped up California figs, which add sweetness to this recipe without added sugar. Transfer to a jar, place in the fridge where the oats will soak overnight and you have a delicious breakfast ready to enjoy in the morning.
Build Your Own Waffle Bar
Next we have a waffle bar, which is great for weekend mornings with the whole family. I used creamy mild-tasting Meyenberg Goat Milk butter and Goat milk, which is the #1 milk worldwide, consumed by more than 65% of the world’s population. Goat milk is higher in protein than cow’s milk and a good source of magnesium, which is important for immune health. Plus, those with sensitive stomachs find it easier to digest, which may be attributed to its smaller fat globules and its low A1 casein protein content. These waffles are made with five ingredients – whisk together 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 egg, 1 cup of Meyenberg Goat Milk, 1 tbsp of baking powder, and 2 tbsp of Meyenberg Goat Milk butter. This butter has also helps make biscuits and croissants extra flaky because of its lower melting point. If you like goat cheese then goat milk butter and jam on your waffles is a must try!
Build your own English Muffin Bar
Next we have a build-your-own English muffin bar, which is an easy breakfast option that can feed the whole family on busy weekday mornings. Start with your toasted Honey Whole Grain English Muffins, bagels, Hawaiian Sweet Bread and bread slices by Canyon Bakehouse which are gluten-free and free of the top major food allergens. They come in this innovative Stay-Fresh Packaging, which is sealed air-tight so your bread stays fresh for 90 days until you open it. It’s great back to school meal staple that you can keep in the pantry and have it when you need it – no refrigeration or freezing required. Pair your bread with protein and produce toppings like eggs, nut butter, fruit and veggies to build balanced breakfasts with staying power.

Finally we have an easy breakfast hack to make your breakfasts more nutritious and delicious. The Nutty Infusions Gourmet Nut Butters come in bold varieties including Mango Chili Cashew. They are made in a peanut-free facility and add good fats and satisfying plant protein to a variety of breakfast recipes. Stir a spoonful into a warm bowl or oatmeal, spread on toast or blend into a smoothie for a little flavor flare.
