GFCF Power Breakfast Cereal

by Misty

Many people have asked me what I feed my kiddos for breakfast, but the real question is what do I NOT feed my kids for breakfast? At the very top of that list is cereal from a box. I occasionally buy fun, natural gluten-free cereals for an afternoon snack, but they do NOT make a decent breakfast! Breakfast should be packed with good fats, protein and healthy carb choices. Every cell in our bodies is made of fats, proteins and water, so this is what every cell in our body needs to thrive.

And guess what? This little bowl of cereal is filled with just that. I keep a bag pre-made in the fridge at all times for those mornings we’re in an extra hurry. There are endless ways to modify this for your family, so get creative. And enjoy – this is one bowl of cereal you can feel good about giving your kiddos for breakfast!

Wrap: Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery Tortilla with Applegate Smoked Turkey, Lettuce and Wholly Guacamole

Veggie: Steamed broccoli

Fruit: Cutie orange

This is my daughter’s favorite lunch. She requests it at least twice a week. I lightly toast the tortilla in a skillet to soften it before assembling. I buy the tortillas and guacamole at Costco and get the smoked turkey at the Target deli case – so happy to buy it fresh!

Let me save you the time from trying every crust and “cheese” on the market, because we’ve tried them all and can confirm we’re working with the most pizza-like ingredients out there. Every time we’ve deviated to something new, we’ve regretted it, so until something comes along that knocks my family’s socks off, we’ll keep doing what we’re doing in the pizza department!
