Everything but the kitchen sink oatmeal:

Cook whole flake or steel cut oats (to pkg instructions)

I only cook for about 5 minutes or a non-cook variety where you soak overnight

Add apple juice or juice of any home canned fruit to the cooking

process substituting for some of the water.

To the cooked oatmeal add:

Applesauce (homemade preferred)

Add as much as desired of any or all:

Chia, Ground Flax Seed, Hemp Hearts, Sunflower & Pumpkin Seeds

Add pieces of fresh apple & banana

Add Walnuts & any other nuts

Drizzle honey to taste & enjoy

Scrambled Eggs Supreme:

This recipe takes a bit of time but so worth it.

Sautee small chunks of sweet potato, onion, 1 clove of garlic & chopped up asparagus

Add several farm fresh eggs and stir,

When nearly cooked add crumbled goat cheese and fold in

Serve with a big spoonful of sauerkraut on top, kefir cream cheese and sprouts

Add salsa or olives for more flavour (but not needed)

Bean Dip or Humous:

If you use canned beans or chick peas rinse very well to reduce sodium

Put 2 cans worth in a blender

Add 2 tbsp organic Lemon Juice &/or Apple Cider Vinegar to taste

Add 1 tsp crushed Garlic cloves

Add a splash of Bragg (from Health Food Store)

Pinch of cayenne (optional)

Blend and use as a dip for carrots, snap peas, or gluten free crackers

7 Layer Dip:

In a serving dish layer the following:

½” of the above Been Dip or Humous

½” Cooked Brown Rice

Can of corn (not creamed)

1/3“ Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt

1/3” Salsa &/or freshly diced Tomatoes

Smattering of Cut up Kalamata Olives (de-pitted)

Serve with pita bread, crackers or tortilla chips                          

After School Snack:
