Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, it is what gives you that boost of energy in the morning that keeps you going through the day. The one thing I sometimes struggle with is eating all of the right foods in the morning, sometimes I have to opt to go through a drive-thru just to get that first meal. It definitely isn’t the healthiest option I could choose to make.
The one thing I have learned is if I do make a big breakfast in the morning, my children are more likely to get those healthy options that any mom could agree with. In my home, we have a split decision between eating sweet potatoes or red potatoes. Since it makes more sense in my head, I like to make both for the kiddos to choose from. I came across this recipe by trial and error with my kiddos.
To my surprise, they love all of these vegetables together and another shocker added to this dish, is that they always come back for seconds! This mom is always happy to make this buffet-style meal for any morning. I love how making this dish is so easy and the prep and cook are a breeze. While one this is cooking you are prepping the other half of the meal. The times match up perfectly and the food comes out hot and fantastic!
My kids loving having this dish laid out as a buffet style so they can pick and choose what they would like to have in their bowls, it’s like a breakfast bowl party in the morning. This is also one of those types of dishes where when you reheat it, it tastes even better! I like to take the leftovers to work in the morning and then share my bowl with my little princess. I came across these Reynolds™ Disposable Heat & Eat Containers at my local Walmart store.
Initially, I thought, how could these be any different from the regular plastic containers I normally use for my lunch meals. After further inspection and actually trying the bowls out, I found so many benefits to using these for any of my leftover meals. I love that I can pack my leftovers from any meal into the containers, they have a bowl and a long food tray.
