My daughter would eat breakfast all day if I let her, so I try to occasionally incorporate breakfast into her lunch. Eggs really get a bad rap. They have nutritional benefits, especially if you can get local yard eggs (what most would think of as cage free, but the cage free term is misleading. Chickens only need to have access to the outside, even if its a measly opening in the giant coop.) Eggs offer protein, vitamins, minerals and iron. Yard eggs also are a good source of Omega-3.
OK, enough about egg benefits. Today’s lunch box contained a scrambled egg wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla with a little Earth Balance “butter,” watermelon flower on bed of pineapple and grapes, fresh peach slices and carrot sticks.
The yummy treat is a pumpkin donut for her snack. The recipe is here.
