Since we are on the topic of breakfast and Mother’s Day is this Sunday, why not give mom a healthy breakfast as a gift? Here is a menu of three healthy recipes sure to impress.
Blueberry-Apricot Yogurt Parfaits
Frittata? What is that you might ask? A frittata is an Italian dish which mimics an omelet or a crust-less quiche. You can add any vegetables and a variety of meat. This frittata uses leeks and potatoes. Leeks belong to the onion and garlic family and are a great addition to soups, salads and pasta dishes. If you’re not feeling adventurous today, you can always substitute onions for leeks. Leeks may look daunting, but they are easy to work with. Check out the video below on how to wash and cut them. To save time, the recipe calls for frozen roasted red potatoes. You can find these in any grocery store in the frozen food section, but if they don’t have red potatoes you can substitute sweet potato fries instead. Make sure to thaw them out the night before and dice before adding them to the frittata.
Let’s not forget about dessert. This fruit parfait is a delicious way to meet your 3-A-Day dairy requirement, and fiber from the blueberries and apricots is a bonus! This breakfast has all three components of a meal to keep you full. Mom is sure to appreciate the effort and enjoy this delicious menu!
