Summer is a great time to teach our kids about healthy foods! It's also an amazing way to introduce them to new cooking skills. If you are bored with your breakfast, giving in at the cereal aisle or just want to start your day off healthy, try out some of these options.

3 Healthy Breakfast Ideas

Berry Yogurt Parfait

1/2 cup of your favorite berry or berry mixture

Add 1 large dollop of Greek yogurt

Add a sprinkling of Muesli and a drizzle of honey!

Buenos Diaz

1 slice of toasted whole grain bread *optional for the paleo crowd*

1/4 sliced or mashed avocado

Add an egg (over easy or scrambled) 

Top with a dollop of salsa, cracked black pepper and a dash of sea salt.

Morning Greens

Who says salads are just for lunch? It might seem strange, but if you are not the green smoothie type, why not throw it in a bowl?

Start your bowl with any kind of greens you like (spinach, kale, spring mix, etc.)

Add your favorite fruit (tangerine slices, strawberries, blueberries, apples, pears....you name it!)

Add addit...

Less math, more mindfulness! I don't mean you don't need to do ANY math over the summer, we actually do math year round in our homeschool. However, summer is a time in which we tend to wind down from the rigors of academics and break out into the outdoors with lots of hands on learning opportunities with our families and friends! This is a great time to start being more mindful of life skills that help our children, and ourselves, increase our happiness levels. 

As I teach my students, being mindful of applying life skills like gratitude and kindness is simple and difficult all at the same time. These life skills are easy to use, but can also be easy to forget! We live in a world that is fast paced and filled with activities. Therefore, we must take the time to create more mindfulness of these life skills and increase our practice of them. 

3 Ways to Practice Summer Mindfulness

Spend 5 minutes each day with a gratitude journal. This is a wonderful way to get the day started off...
