Breakfast Challenge Day 07, Egg Mayo Open Toast…..and we are done!

So it’s the end of the self assigned breakfast challenge which I put myself through in an attempt to end this feud that me and my first were going through.

Combatting tears and tantrums over breakfast had me over the edge every single day. At the end of the week though, I realized that my baby is growing up. I need to give him room for decision making. Not just at breakfast but even at day to day choices. The power of choice can be truly empowering in a good constructive way. I suppose I had to go through this exercise to realize that.

Moving on, hopefully him and me can reach midway to make our lives easier.

Here’s what he wanted to end his week with. It’s his absolute favorite item and he can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even a snack!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Egg, soft boiled (3 to 4mins)
  • 1 Tbsp, Mayo
  • Salt to taste
  • Jaggery to taste
  • Mustard powder to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • A slice of multigrain bread
  • Finely chopped spring onion and peppers or choice of topping
  • Drizzle of Olive oil (optional)

Method:

  • Mix everything together and top off warm toast with the egg mayo mix. Garnish with the chopped onions and peppers.

OR

  • Make grilled sandwich with the egg mayo as sandwich stuffing. Either way it’s delicious!

Serve warm.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading through our breakfast challenge.

Breakfast Challenge Day – 04, Fruit Bowl

We’re on day 4 today and with just 3 more days to go this little experiment has got me to realize that the power of choice every now and then can help settle the tantrums down. We can meet halfway and I don’t need him to tow my line every single time.

Wanting to stay in control has cost me my cool a lot of times and this little experiment of mine has been more a learning journey for me than anything else.

Today was super easy, fruit bowl with a sprinkle of assorted seeds. Trilok, had two helpings and Tara was done with one and happily so.

Both kids got through breakfast without a single wince or whine and the day has progressed on a relatively satisfying note.

Thank you for reading!

Up tomorrow, Chocolate chip pancakes.
