Stacked Teriyaki Burgers

Chocolate Waffles (Paleo, Mediterranean)

My favorite meal time is probably breakfast.  I love that you can really get away with eating just about anything.  It can be savory or sweet or somewhere in-between and it’s all acceptable for breakfast.  I mean you can eat cake with a side of ham if you want and that’s perfectly fine.  How can you not love that!  The no restrictions and unlimited potential of breakfast is so appealing to me, maybe it’s because I have an enormous sweet tooth and can get away with eating chocolate first thing in the morning, but really the endless options and choices makes this my favorite meal time.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins (Paleo)

Are you rushed in the mornings and have to sacrifice breakfast or resort to a grab and go item that is not as healthy as you’d like?  That’s my house during the school year and when kids are in summer camps.  We are so rushed to get out the door that we end up needing something to eat in the car.  I’ve searched the stores and a lot of the quick breakfast choices aren’t that healthy and don’t fit into our new diet plan.  So when you have a crazy week ahead and need a quick breakfast (or snack), try baking these delicious Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins.  They are moist, full of healthy goodness, and kid approved!
