As a dad, you are constantly on the go. The days of making a full breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon, hashbrowns, you name it, are gone. Now we’re lucky to have breakfast at all some mornings! When I am looking for breakfast, I am looking for something quick, easy and satisfying. Here are my top 3 favourite breakfasts, with all the ingredients available at any Costco.
Ener-C, Hippie Snacks Coconut Clusters and Yogurt (and Nutella)
With every meal, I make sure to have a glass of Ener-C, especially since I have little ones that bring home colds from school. I could snack on bags of any Hippie Snacks product, but for breakfast, I love the combination of Coconut Clusters with greek yogurt. Coconut clusters are a healthy, non-GMO snack made with organic coconut, seeds and spices. To make my breakfast feel like a mini tropical vacation, I also add in a spoonful of Nutella, because, come on, who doesn’t love Nutella?! These fun snacks are even found at some Starbucks locations.
Qi’a and Yogurt
My second favourite breakfast is Qi’a, which is a mixture of chia, buckwheat and hemp, as a topper for any yogurt or greek yogurt. Apart from the amazing taste, another plus for this product is that it is actually a superfood. How else do you think I earned my nickname SuperDad?! (Dad joke, get it?! No? Okay, moving on).
Nature’s Path Instant Oatmeal
On a cold day, there is nothing better than a hot bowl of Nature’s Path Instant Oatmeal. This oatmeal is 100% organic with no sugar. Other benefits include being a high source of fibre. My go-to is original, with some frozen blueberries quickly defrosted for some added flavour. If you’re pressed for time and can’t add your own fruit, Nature’s Path comes in a variety of different, delicious flavours.
