While waiting on our baby to make his grand appearance I cooked up an assortment of delicious ready to eat foods to have on hand. This combines some of my favorite super foods and is easy to throw together! For those of you that don't regularly eat breakfast it's worth mentioning that breakfast is a super important meal. This nourishment literally breaks the fast from sleeping and sets the ground work for a days worth of healthy eating, clear thinking and good energy.
