Most mornings, he eats at least two breakfasts - sometimes three - and when I tell him he needs to slow down, he protests "Nana says I'm a breakfast eater."
My consolation for this overeating behavior is that JB doesn't eat much in the evenings.
But perhaps his breakfast-eating ways come from my side of the family. After all, I'm somewhat obsessed with breakfast myself.
This week's morning menu - my personal one - features overnight oats.
Heard of them? They're all the rage on Pinterest.
I like the recipe on Skinnytaste (of course) and have modified it to fit my own taste buds:
1/4 cup of oatmeal
1/2 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk
1 tablespoon of milled flaxseed
1/4 of a banana, mashed
1/4 cup of your favorite fruit
Sprinkle of cinnamon
1 packet of Splenda
Mix all of these ingredients together, place in a jar or Tupperware bowl (my preference) and put it in the fridge. Wait at least 12 hours before eating.
My calculations show this to be a four-point breakfast - unless you top it with natural almonds or walnuts, which is fantastic.
For the next four days, I have lots of overnight oats options - strawberry and blueberry, blueberry and raspberry, and peach.
And there's no way I could pick a favorite.
You can't ask that of a breakfast eater.
