Moms Check In

Now that Sam is back in school, our mornings are definitely busier. Some days, it’s a challenge to get breakfast in both of us before we start our day. I’m sure I’m not the only one that feels this way! So tell me…

What’s your go to breakfast on a busy morning?

What's your go to breakfast?


Stephanie: I make sure Sam has a good breakfast but on a busy weekday morning I grab an English muffin—with jam and peanut butter—a banana and a green tea, which I eat in the car. I eat in the car waaay too often as you could tell if you could see the crumbs under the seat. – Stephanie is the mom to Sam and the author of Spaceships and Laser Beams.

Amanda: Well, when I think of it the night before I make a batch of baked oatmeal. It’s SO good and the combinations are really endless. But most of the time, let’s be honest: I don’t think ahead. We are big cereal and banana fans. I’m trying to be good and eat before we leave for school because last year we got in a bad habit of going through the Starbucks drive through on the way to school… a lot. I will say, they have yummy breakfast sandwiches! 🙂 – Amanda is the mom to Joshua and owns It’s a Fabulous Life.

Lindsay: My daughter loves cereal and will eat Mini Wheats with blueberries every day which is quick and easy and works for me! My son likes frozen waffles and French toast sticks with peanut butter on them and fruit, usually blueberries or raspberries. I try to fill them up on a school day and get some protein and fruit in them. Now, on the weekends? My husband cooks and makes blueberry pancakes (can you tell we like blueberries yet?) on Saturday and scrambled eggs on Sunday. Those are my favorite days, of course! – Lindsay is the mom of 2 and author of See Mom Click. She shares great deals, Disney happenings and recipes. You can follow her on Twitter here!


Jenni: Okay, so I’d love to say something really awesome like homemade biscuits and gravy – but uhhhhh no. My go-to breakfast on a busy weekday morning is coffee. Occasionally I’ll squeeze in a granola bar and I intentionally buy the ones with protein so I get that little bit in the mornings. Now, on the weekend – it’s all kinds of breakfast up in our house! My husband can THROW down in the kitchen! – Jenni is the mom of one and the author of Sweet Pennies From Heaven.
