I didn’t mean to take another two weeks off, but I totally blame it on vacation brain. You know…where you are thinking and planning and packing about going on vacation, then you go and you have a wonderful time! And then you have to come back and there’s laundry and grocery shopping waiting to slam into you as soon as you walk through the door!
The theme for the Gluten Free Menu Swap over at Celiac Family Quick and Easy Gluten Free Breakfast for back to school! We don’t go back for another couple of weeks (and they are the worst weeks as there are no special activities planned!), but that is just the time to start implementing quick routines so back to school goes smoothly. I am the queen of quick and easy breakfasts because we’ve had so many Vacation Bible Schools, and other activities that quick and easy has been the theme all summer for us. Here are some of our tried and true favorites. (All of them easily freeze!) Lighter Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins, Paleo Chocolate Breakfast Cookies, and Peanut Butter (Sunbutter for me!) Chocolate Banana Bread. Yes, we like chocolate around here! We also do cereal occasionally, and we throw in a smoothie or eggs for a change. My daughter likes a sausage to go with her muffins a couple of times a week or just some applesauce. I have some of these refillable containers to make the applesauce budget friendly and grab and go friendly!
We’re keeping the main meals quick and easy around here again so we can eat good food and still have time leftover to play!
