I treasure the meal times that we eat as a family. It’s not always possible but sometimes we have breakfast together or dinner. It was always important to my family when I was growing up. I remember the smell of baked potatoes, marinated onions, and Kapchonka (a type of Russian smoked fish) as I would get up Sunday morning. What a warm feeling to run downstairs, the smell of coffee roasting hit my nostrils and the sound of my grandparent’s voices echoing in the hallway. What excitement it was to see my favorite people in the world have arrived. My grandparents would come over for breakfast at our house. I loved family breakfasts. We would sit all together at the table and eat breakfast, discussing anything from Russian news to school to the past to the future. My favorite stories were about when my grandparents were young. I loved to hear how my grandpa was a sailor and traveled the world and how my grandma was a nurse who took care of newborn babies. I miss those days, but I want to pass those days onto my little one through meals together. Healthy eating habits start to form from an early age if babies are directed in the right path. Incorporating the right amount of veggies and fruits daily is very important early on and sharing those habits at the dinner table just makes it so much better! Eat healthy as a family. With a hectic schedule it’s sometimes hard to include meals together but we do our best to try to have a few. Today for breakfast we had omelets and had fun being shown by our little one what he has learned so far. Share those special moments over a quick, healthy, and easy meal for everyone!
A little history about this omelet recipe-
When I was little and stayed over my grandparent’s apartment my grandpa would make the best omelet ever! This is his recipe modified a little bit for my little one.
1 organic egg
1 teaspoon of gluten free all-purpose flour (by red mill)
5 tablespoons of goat milk
Mix everything in a bowl
On a small pan spray some coconut oil.
Then add any veggies that your little one likes. I added shredded steamed green beans and broccoli.
Then pour in the egg mixture on top of the veggies.
Add 1 slice of organic baby Swiss cheese and fry on medium until ready
It makes a fluffy omelet for your little one to enjoy! HAPPY FRIDAY 🙂
*Omelet is intended for babies over one who can eat eggs. Egg whites contain allergens so make sure your little one isn’t allergic beforehand You can also substitute dairy free milk instead of goat milk.
