A quick breakfast to go can be a lifesaver. I remember, on cold winter mornings my mother would make us avena for breakfast. Warm oatmeal swimming in sweetened milk with a sprinkle of cinnamon. I think back to these days with loving memories as my mom whirled through her busy day effortlessly. Fast forward to my home where busy mornings leave me frazzled, dazed and half confused the remainder of the day.
Women today are conquering new goals every day, taking on double roles and blazing paths for the future generation. We are women hear us roar. Our stomachs that is. In our rush to tackle on the day we often leave the house with an empty stomach. By 9am we are rummaging through our purse for that lost candy bar,salty snack or sweetened breakfast bar we earlier confiscated from our kids. Not good.
