Have I mentioned lately that I love to eat? I love trying new foods and I love being reminded how much I love older classic foods. Now, avocados may not seem like classic food, but to me it is. Mexican food is my FAVORITE and you have to have guacamole with Mexican food right? It’s a must. I received some avocados from Mexico from a PR company representing avocados from Mexico. Now having these avocados, made me start thinking of all the different ways I could eat them, and why avocados are so good for us.
Studies have shown that eating breakfast is quite important. Not only is it important to breakfast, it’s important for it to be a well balanced breakfast. According to the American Dietetic Association, children who eat breakfast perform better in the classroom and on the playground, with better concentration, problem-solving skills, and eye-hand coordination. Enjoying a nutritious start to the day not only improves brain function but prompts less snacking throughout the day – healthy for the brain and the body!
An Oxford Brookes study shows that sugary and high glycemic index foods just make kids hungrier. Instead, try a creamy Avocado Pineapple Smoothie, a luscious blend of tropical fruits with a touch of sweetness that offers a healthy alternative to sugary cereals.
For our breakfast, I came up with something very simple.
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Cheddar Cheese
Microwave the tortillas for 10 to 15 seconds
Mix eggs, milk, salt to make scrambled eggs. The quantity depends on how many people you are feeding. Scramble the eggs on a skillet and top with cheese just as they finish cooking.
Peel and cut the avocados
Place eggs and avocados in the tortilla and wrap them up like a burrito
Dip in Salsa and or Sour Cream.
