Nourishing Breakfast Challenge


One week of nourishing breakfasts!

I think that once you find out just how easy it is to incorporate 'soaking' grains, beans and nuts into your life you will be more apt to do it. The concept seems huge at first, 'how in the world am I going to add one more thing into my already busy schedule?'

I am going to attempt to make it easy and fun for you. All this week I will post breakfast recipes that incorporate soaking practices. I will also post a grocery list of items you may not have on hand so you can be prepared for next week. I will also post a schedule to follow telling you when to soak something and when to prepare it. You print up the recipes, study them, prepare for them and make them next week according to schedule!

Just to make it even more fun I thought I would have a 'give-away'! I would like to give away Stephanie's (from Keeper of the Home) ebook
Healthy Homemaking:
One Step at a Time
A 52 Week Journey of Baby Steps to Help You Move Towards More Natural, Nutritious and Sustainable Living!

Here are the rules.
*commit to follow along each day next week

*make the assigned breakfast

*leave a comment and/or post about it on your blog, telling of your experience

For each day you make the breakfast and post/comment about it your name gets entered into the drawing. If you make all five of the breakfasts, you get your name entered in an extra three (3) times! As a bonus, if you post about the Nourishing Breakfast Challenge on your blog this week encouraging others to join in, you will get your name entered in another three (3) times!

I hope this will be a fun way to challenge you to start incorporating these nourishing methods into your diet. By the way, if your morning schedule is too crazy for this type of change just make them for lunch, it still counts!!

O.K. I'm in. I have always loved breakfast. I'm guessing we will start next week?

sounds like fun! Since I only go grocery shopping once a week if I can help it, could you post up the shopping list for the whole week right away? That would be a big help!

My husband will love this challenge - he loves homemade breakfast, but unfortunately often gets convenience items due to lack of quick and easy recipes.

Hi there, I have been reading your blog for some time and I wanted to let you know that I did the breakfast challenge this week. My husband really enjoyed having a cooked breakfast each morning, not some thing he normally gets. It has inspired me to make a better effort at getting up in the morning with him and sending him off well nourished to start the day. The kids were not to keen on some of the meals, but it has given me ideas to work with. Thank you so much for taking the time to help others out with your ideas and thoughts.

I like your breakfast challenge schedule. We, too, buy our baking supplies in bulk. So, just this month I purchased 50 lbs. of steel cut oats which I put in the crock pot every night and it is ready for breakfast each morning, stone ground whole wheat fine grind, and a millers mixture of barley and wheat. This breakfast challenge is just what I needed to see.
