SLOW DOWN AND ENJOY YOUR BREAKFAST!

By John, Grocery Buyer and Breakfast Connoisseur

You're heard it since you were a tiny little tyke: "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day!" It's true! A delicious breakfast can set the mood for your entire day to come, and while some of America may 'run on, we here at Cambridge Naturals prefer things prepared a bit more slowly and with a tad more TLC. With that in mind, here are some great family-friendly breakfast ideas ranging from sweet and sticky to savory and spicy. Enjoy!

NUTTY, MELTY FAUX-CREPES:

This is one the kids will love! Start with some of our Siete Almond Flour Grain-Free Tortillas. Spread your fillings on one side (think Nutiva Hazelnut Spread, Fior Di Frutta fruit spreads, Once Again Creamy Almond Butter, Organic Living Natural Juice-Infused Strawberries, maybe some banana slices...), fold it over quesadilla/crepe style and pan-fry to golden brown on both sides in a bit of Full Moon Ghee. It doesn't get much easier than that, or more satisfying!

THE KOREAN-STYLE OMELETTE:

Melt some Full Moon Ghee in your frying pan and beat some of our unbeatable Brookford Farm Eggs in a bowl. Add the eggs, some Chi Kitchen Kimchi, scallions, and shredded Neighborly Farms Sharp Cheddar. Cook 'til fluffy and serve with a liberal squirt of Bushwick Kitchen Weak Knees Gochujang Sriracha. Voila! The perfect breakfast for those who prefer to start their day with a little heat!

PANCAKES TWO WAYS:

Who doesn't love a nice stack of pancakes? I love them so much I couldn't decide on just one recipe suggestion, so you lucky folks get two!

First up, soak some goji berries overnight in water (or dare I suggest simple syrup?). Prepare some batter with our Bob's Red Mill Paleo Pancake Mix (I hear it's best prepared with Brookford Farm Eggs and Nutiva Virgin Coconut Oil), add the berries, and break in some wafers of our Sunfood Cacao Paste. Cook 'em up and you've scrumptious Paleo Goji Cacao pancakes!

Or for a very decadent sweet-spicy-nutty-tart explosion of flavors, begin with our Mu Mu Magic Organic Cranberry Date Pancake Mix (oddly enough, this kind is best prepared with Brookford Farm Eggs and Nutiva Coconut Oil as well!). Chop up some Will & Rose's Pecans into that batter. Cook 'em up and slather them in Benito's Habanero-Infused Maple Syrup and Organic Valley European-style cultured butter. Cranberry and Habanero go fantastic together, believe it or not! Try it and you'll be convinced in no time!

So there you have it. Put down that prepackaged bar, accept that your local bagel place won't miss you if you skip just one day, and sit down with a nice, homemade breakfast. Treat yourself! You deserve it!
