Apple Peanut Butter Toast

I like toast for breakfast – all kinds of toast. I’ve shared avocado toast ideas, roasted beets & feta toast, and  even apple yogurt toast with dates.  Today I’m sharing a very easy breakfast or snack idea that is really tasty and nutritious, apple peanut butter toast.  It will please both children and adults with its taste and crunch. It’s also a great after school snack when the kids get home.

Chia Pudding Variations For Breakfast

Another wonderful thing about chia pudding is it’s so easy to make. Breakfast meal-prep becomes seconds as you spoon some in a dish and add fresh fruit. How hard is that?

Sauteed Greens & Eggs

I’ve posted many recipes calling for sautéed greens – a little olive oil and garlic with spinach, kale, chard, collards. All the greens you can name taste good with olive oil and garlic.  If you want to really raise it a notch, add a couple of shallots, some onions, or leeks. A fine combination of flavors that can start your day with a warm dish, provide a tasty lunch, or even an easy dinner when paired with eggs. Wash the greens, remove the ribs, and chop or tear the leaves.
