Leftovers as Breakfast

A local parenting group was discussing quick nutritious breakfast ideas, on Facebook, a few days ago. I thought about mentioning one of our favorite quick morning meals...leftovers! Often leftovers are more nutritious than a bowl of cereal or other "traditional" breakfast fare, super quick, my kids love them, and it clears out my refrigerator for something fun and new later in the day.
Here is lunch; Cuban-Style Black Beans from Vegan Planet topped with a dollop of Tofutti sour cream and avocado, organic Clementines from Common Ground Co-op, and whole wheat pasta with peas and carrots with Robin Robertson's Three-Nut Cheeze Whiz tester recipe.
Here is breakfast the next day; Cheesey Grits topped with Cuban-Style Black Beans, fresh salsa from Common Ground Co-op, a dollop of Tofutti sour cream and za'tar.  The kids ate kiwi while the grits cooked and we all enjoyed a tasty, hot, hardy start to our busy day.

I agree!
Left-overs are my objective!
And when you like a meal once... you will like it twice for sure!

Leftovers are the best and with kids, even if they don't eat it the first time, they usually gobble it down when it is presented a different way.

I loooove leftovers for breakfast - I don't even fancy them up - but, now I'm going to try to think of some ways to give things a fresh twist. Thanks!

I'm really looking forward to R. Roberson's new book, just to get that 3-Nut Cheez Whiz recipe!
