I hope you enjoyed my series of menus from last week... I am so happy to see many of you got inspired by them! Thank you for your comments (here on facebook), likes and shares! You are all too kind!
Now... last week I told you I want to put together a menu for Moms that are "on the go" recipes/tips for quick meals/snacks or just things that you can just prepare ahead to enjoy later...
I asked for help from fellow THM bloggers that I know and trust and I am going to share with you today some of those recipes that might help you feel like you don't have to spend "all day/everyday" in the kitchen. Some of these do require work and preparation, but they can be made in those times when you do have the time to be in the kitchen and then just store for when you are on the run.
Today it's all about breakfasts:
We got for you:
1. (S) Salted Caramel Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shake by Cate at The Fabuless Wife I love shakes like this! Packed with protein, just throw it all in the blender and TAKE IT with you! If you have a blender with individual cups like a Ninja you don't even have to worry about transferring your drink to any other container.

2. Or how about you take some time during the weekend and prepare this delicious (E) Sprouted Wheat Cinnamon Scones by Judy at Wonderfully Made and Dearly Loved. She told me these store great and they are delicious! They sure look it!
3. Or try Jennifer's (E) Baked Blueberry Oatmeal from A Home with Purpose, she prepares this, puts it away in the fridge and eats it cold! It sounds yummy, and you're getting your e meals in!
4. You could also try her Warm Chia Porridge Dry Mix, she keeps it on hand and ready to avoid throwing things together in the morning.
5. If you are more of a "cereal in the morning" kind of person, you won't miss that on THM ... You can always get Ezekiel Cereal:
and just have it with unsweetened almond or cashew milk for a perfect "E" and there's almost no preparation involved!
6. If you want you can also make your own cereal, I loved (S) The Nutty Banana Crunch Cereal also from Judy at Wonderfully Made and Dearly Loved, it's a great low carb cereal that you can prepare ahead, store in a glass jar and have it ready when you need it! I would double her recipe, here at home we liked it better with a bit of almond extract instead of banana extract. It really has a great crunch! I love it on its own!
7. You could also just have a slice of Ezekiel Bread toast with 1 tsp. of butter, 1 individual container of Triple Zero Yogurt and 1 cup of berries (I love it with strawberries). This would be an "E"
8. You can never go wrong with Scrambled Eggs! Whole eggs are always an S (just some quick THM info) And Teresia from Nana's Little Kitchen has a very easy (S) Quick Spinach and Egg Breakfast
9. Leftovers! Yes... have dinner (or lunch) for breakfast! The most important thing you have to do is EAT! Don't skip a meal... Don't stay too long without food in your stomach... just make sure you stay within the appropriate setting (S, E or FP)
10. Fruit... If you go for fruit make sure it's not an abundant amount... Have some protein with it (Extra lean protein) to keep it an E (Fruit is always an E, except berries... those can be used in any setting -up to 1 cup- except for berries up to 1/2 cup if you want to use them in any setting. You can even grab 1/2 a banana and have one of those triple Zero Yogurts. The Chia Pudding from the book is a great breakfast option on the go as well.
I hope this has been helpful for you... Let me know!
Got your Book yet???
