Breakfast Schedule!

Share this post:

Sooooo, I was at a client’s house, helping her organize her kitchen, and I noticed a breakfast schedule posted to her refrigerator.

It looked a little something like this:

Monday: Eggs, potatoes and sausage

Tuesday: Cereal, yogurt and fruit

Wednesday: Breakfast burrito

Thursday: Waffles and berries

Friday: Fruit smoothie

Just that very morning I had been juggling my active toddler and newborn baby, wondering what on earth to make for breakfast amidst the am chaos. I thought how much easier it would be with a simple guide like this. Inspired, I created my own breakfast schedule including our family faves and now my husband and I take turns throwing together whatever is posted for the day. I also brainstormed a list of creative options for when we run out of something or want to mix it up a bit.

What do you do to stay organized each morning?

  1. I find it crucial to do everything possible the night before. Depending on what the next day will bring, I restock my child’s diaper backpack, make sure I have everything on hand for breakfast, and make sure necessary laundry is done. Usually I take everything we’ll need for the day and put it out in the car. It always makes for a much more peaceful morning.

  2. I have done something like this for all meal planning – kept a list on the fridge of things I like to make for meals that are relatively easy and/or use ingredients I am likely to have on hand. This way, I don’t feel like I am re-inventing the wheel and don’t forget good go-to meals!

  3. I love relishrelish.com! kinda the same idea, but for dinners, and while it costs a small amount, when I use it, I save a lot of $$ and time. I agree, I can’t get out the door with an infant and preschooler unless I do all the prep work the night before.

  4. we’ve been doing the same M-F bfast rotations for at least a couple years. Sounds boring but the kids are happy with it and I don’t have to do too much thinking about what to serve in the AM. The eggs I mix up with cheese and/or ham and sometimes chopped spinach but my kids have been really picky lately so i haven’t been doing that one. here are the menus to chose from: eggs of some sort (we just added soft-boiled eggs into the rotation which my tween loves, the toddlers aren’t so into it), oatmeal with nuts (almonds or walnuts) &fruit (apples, raisins, craisins, or bananas) served w/ pure maple sryup, Trader Joe’s whole wheat plain or blueberry frozen waffles (i try to serve these with an egg so it’s not a sugar-fest and they get _some_ protein), and french toast made with Semi-freddi’s cinnamon bread and a very eggy batter. Friday is cereal day to give me a break from cooking. I also make a point to have _my_ backpack/gym bag/lunch packed as much ahead of time as possible so I can grab my stuff and go in the AM. The other time saver I did was to put my husband on 100% lunch duty. He makes all the kids lunches and it has made my AM go much smoother!
