Are your mornings as hectic as mine? My mornings always seem to be a bit chaotic. First off, I am NOT a morning person. The snooze button is my friend. Once I’m finally up, I wake Z.E.N. up and head to the kitchen for my usual morning routine of getting breakfast ready and packing lunch. Breakfast used to be a hassle because Z.E.N. could never what he wanted to eat and I’d wind up scrambling to get him fed. When you add the fact that I also have to make a hot lunch for his lunch box, the result was that we were always running late. I had to figure out a way to simplify breakfast. I advised Z.E.N. that his breakfast choices would be limited to things that were either already prepared, or that can be prepared quickly. For example, whenever we make pancakes, I make an extra batch that I can freeze for later.

When Z.E.N. wants pancakes, all I have to do is pop the previously frozen pancakes in the microwave.

He has also grown to love cereal.  We are always fully stocked up on Cheerios. I grew up eating Cheerios. Back then all I ever remember seeing in our house was the original yellow box of Cheerios. The have quite a few different varieties now, so we have been trying them all.  I’m always relieved when Z.E.N. decides to eat cereal since it’s such a time saver. Some days he’ll eat it dry. Other days he’ll eat it with milk. And some days, I’ll make a parfait using Cheerios as one of the main ingredients for him.  It’s so easy to make and only takes a few minutes. Here’s the recipe if you want to try it out yourself:

Cheerios Parfait Recipe


1 cup Nonfat Vanilla Greek yogurt

1 cup Cheerios

1/2 cup sliced fresh strawberries

1/2 cup fresh blueberries

1 Tbs granola


To assemble the parfait, layer the yogurt, Cheerios, and fruit in a container. Top with granola.

One thing I love about this Cheerios parfait recipe is that it is very easy to customize. You can experiment with different combinations of yogurt, fruits, Cheerios, and granola.
