One of the great traditions of Mother's Day is serving mom breakfast in bed, and the big day is coming up May 13. The Destination Spa Group asked chefs from destination spas for some healthy recipes that kids can make for mom. They do look delicious, and healthy, but I think most are beyond the abilities of child chefs. Maybe the muffins will work.
But here's another idea -- try some of these healthy breakfast recipes. And give Dad this pumpkin body scrub recipe I'm pretty sure the kids CAN make with ingredients you already have.
From Red Mountain Spa, breakfast burritos have Cotija, a dry, crumbly Mexican cheese sometimes referred to as the "Parmesan of Mexico."
From The Oaks at Ojai, these date nut muffins have just only 110 calories each. This is one the kids might be able to handle, with a little supervision from Dad.
From Green Mountain at Fox Run, try an easy breakfast casserole can be made a few hours ahead or even the night before. The recipe can be doubled easily. You can experiment with other vegetables such as sliced mushrooms or chopped tomatoes.
Quinoa is a fast-cooking, protein-packed whole grain and higher in protein and fiber than many other grains, making it a super nutritious - and delicious -- way to start the day. Try this Berry Nutty Quinoa recipe from Deerfield Spa in Illinois.
From Rancho La Puerta, this Orange Walnut Bread recipe makes two loaves, so share one with grandma.
Pancakes are the classic breakfast meal and this pumpkin pancakes recipe jazzes things up a bit. From The Heartland Spa - Try a little Nutella instead of syrup.
