SWEET Breakfast Plans

I have an allergy-friendly meal plan ready this week not for lunch or dinner, but for BREAKFAST! Usually breakfast is a quick throw-it together kind of meal that includes either a Sunbutter banana sandwich, warm oatmeal, vegan overnight oats, or allergy-friendly muffin with fruit on the side.

Why a breakfast meal plan?  Well, I'm inspired by this....
I was so happy to see a big box outside my door just FILLED with SWEETNESS!  Whoo hoo!  I actually won this box of goodies from Clean Eating Magazine. My recipe suggestion for one of their contests was a top pick, and this box of Wholesome Sweeteners was the prize! They're testing out the top recipes and the winner will be featured in Clean Eating Magazine. Fingers crossed!

The cool thing about this SWEET box is that it's full of wholesome sweeteners that are Fair Trade Certified and organic. I can do a TON of baking with all of these products, and spruce up our usual breakfasts and desserts with the fun flavored agave syrups. Here's some great info about the health benefits of agave if you've never tried it before.

I was also excited to see some allergy-friendly recipes on the back of the bags of organic sugar. I'll have to adapt the recipes a little for Little Guy's food allergies, but I'm excited for some new recipe inspiration.

Here's my allergy-friendly breakfast meal plan for the week. As you can see, oats are key to our breakfasts. We use these oats as a staple. Read the label every time to make sure the oats are safe for your family!:

Monday: Easy waffle with fruit and a Tbsp of vanilla agave syrup for dipping on the side.

Tuesday: Baked Oatmeal from Chockababy using the organic sugar I received. Fruit on the side.

Wednesday: Repeat of baked oatmeal from Tuesday. (Repeats are the key to my meal planning!)

Thursday: Gluten-free and nut-free granola. Notice the use of agave! Since it's 4th of July and we have a day off of work, I plan to eat this outside on our porch over yogurt! 

Friday: Gluten and nut-free granola mixed into warm oatmeal with a Tbsp of Sunbutter on top.

Here's a good illustration of my surprise and excitement to find this SWEET box at my doorstep. 

As Little Gal says, "OH" look at the box of goodies!

Wholesome Sweeteners make me happy. What a nice surprise!

Now let's play some frisbee!!

Any good ideas for recipes I can use for all this sweetness?

I'll be your taste tester! Congrats Kathryn! Good luck with the contest! Little Gal is growing so fast , can't wait to see her and little Guy!

I'm a huge fan of left-overs for breakfast as well! That's one of the reasons I love making baked oatmeal! It used to last 3 or 4 days but we all eat it up too quickly these days! Thanks for sharing :)

I'm anxious to hear how you enjoy all of those natural sugars!

Kathryn @ Mamacado said...

Yes, come taste test Diane! See you soon.

Kathryn @ Mamacado said...

Yes, we'll have to enjoy them slowly but surely. Lots of sweetness in our house!

I love oatmeal. Your plan sounds delicious! And I forgot about baked oatmeal. I love the stuff. I need to get back to making that.

Kathryn @ Mamacado said...

Thanks Jo-Lynne. Agreed! Baked oatmeal is SO GOOD. I even like to eat it as dessert sometimes as I prefer it over "real" cake.
