and they're off.

on the weekends, i live for breakfast.
love, LOVE breakfast.
i'm not even talking waffles and omelettes and
eggs benedict and all that jazz.
just the usual breakfast.
but it's the one meal i don't have time for during the week. i usually slap together a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for the road. however, on the weekends, i love to indulge in several bowls of cheerios or oatmeal squares...you know how you keep adding cereal to finish up the milk? or slow-cooked steel cut oatmeal topped with fruit and a little milk. buttered toast sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. plain greek yogurt with fresh fruit and granola. raisin bagel thins with
strawberry cream cheese.
plus, flax seed or wheat germ sprinkled over everything.

fortunately, the minis have been conditioned to eat this stuff.
now that they are in school, i have no control over what they eat during the day, so i feel good knowing that
i at least gave them a good start.

what's your healthy start?

bodysuit c/o reva from a previous accessory swap.
on the weekends, my healthy start:
oatmeal with milk, topped with chopped apples, flax seed,
and prunes (or raisins/cranberries...whatever's on hand)
(bodysuit, accessory swap (similar)(gorgeous splurge); denim shirt,
victoria's secret (similar)(similar);
shoes, ebay (similar); shorts, op (similar)(similar))

  2. LOVE your outfit! The belt is super cute! As always you rocket it!
    Weekends are the only mornings I get to enjoy breakfast as well. Guess I'm not the only one.

  3. Oh wow! That bodysuit is rockin! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A banana or apple is a favorite of ours for running out the door for school or work.

  5. I thought I was the only one who has a fetish for breakfast. I eat the same thing every morning - strawberry Eggo waffles and hot chocolate - and I love every second of it.

  6. Oomph, I'm adoring your outfit girl! That belt is awesome! Super cute photoshoot. I love that you eat healthy. Mine usually isn't! HAHAHA But I do enjoy steel cut oatmeal and vegetable juicing. When you eat right it does make you FEEL better. Love that you're instilling this in your children. It's good to start young and promote exercise too! You're a great mommy! Have a great evening. :D

  15. I eat breakfast EVERY day. Surrsly. It's the best. I go in phases of what I eat, and make it until I'm sick of it. Sometimes it's poached eggs on toast, sometimes it's oatmeal with apples and cinnamon, sometimes it's huevos rancheros (YUMMMM).

    Love the belt, and can't wait to read the what's the next line(r).

    merci!

  18. Sweetie you look too hot here to be a mom, ha ha. NO really though you look amazing.
    I am starving right now but wanted to get through a few blogs before heading out to grab my "healthy" breakfast (a latte) and I am reading you blog salivating over here. Too funny.
    Cheers,

  19. Usually I do just cereal (Cheerios or if I'm totally bad Crunch Berries) or peanut butter toast or toaster strudel. Gosh I love breakfast! And don't even get me started on breakfast for dinner nights! Yum!

  20. LOVE this look! That belt is AMAZING!!
    we eat very similar (greek yogurt, fresh fruit, flax seed) but I'm an egg person as well! I love sunday morning when I whip up eggs, gluten free pancakes, turkey bacon and a nice glass of oj!

  21. On workdays, I just eat some bananas and corn flakes with milk. But on weekends I usually bust out the eggs and make something tasty like a sunny side up breakfast pizza or a pesto salami fried egg sandwich or ham and scrambled eggs... I just love eggs.

  23. Breakfast is such a great meal, I have granola with yogurt (strawberries when we have them) and a glass of skim milk every day during the week, weekends are my time for eggs and omlettes and such. I am loving your striped body suit with the white shorts, very cool combination! Such a great look

  28. Aaaaaaah, I know exactly what you mean. The only decent breakfast that is worth mentioning is the one in the weekends. Awesome shoes, I never wear sneaker-ish shoes but I love yours. Never seen anything like that before!

    P.S.: Yes, Morgan has improved in my opinion, I didn't like the summer collection. Way too floral and too many rushes and stuff!

  36. Ooh, that looks delicious!! And it's so important to get the kids used to eating healthy when they're little. I've done the same thing, but with snacks. I've gotten them hooked on cucumbers and carrots and raisins and fruit. Man, my kids LOVE fruit. I've kind of been slacking in the breakfast department lately though... =/

    You look adorable in that bodysuit and cut-offs!

  37. I love this casual outfit and that oatmeal looks so amazing! White shorts are one of my fav things to wear on the weekends too :)

  39. The stripe tops is a beauty. Regarding breakfast just starts the day with brewed coffee, a bread plus a choice of spread that I'm in the mood to eat.A slice of fruit will complete the meal. But for my little ones I usually prepare something with rice,egg or even waffles, sometimes as per request.ahh sometimes it's really hard to think of what could be serve on a daily basis.:)

  40. A banana and a cup of coffee...not the healthiest start to the day, but it works for me :)

    I love, love, love those shoes!
