Family Caregivers in Wake Forest, NC – February Is Hot Breakfast Month!
February is one of the colder months of the year, so to celebrate hot breakfast month it’s a perfect idea to start collecting your favorite hot breakfast recipes, or at least try some new ones. Hot Breakfast month features eggs, sausages, steaming porridge, fried tomatoes, crispy hash browns, strong coffee and much more.
Try breaking out of the cold cereal habit, at least for this month. What could you have instead? How about waffles, toast and jam, toasted bagel and cream cheese, blueberry muffins or bacon and eggs with fruit on the side?
“If you’re not a morning person, taking the extra time cook, eat and clean up might not sound worth it. Oatmeal might be the perfect solution. It can be made quickly in a microwave and you can customize it to your taste. Add some fruit and nuts and you’ve got yourself a warm, filling, balanced meal.
You could also make pancake or waffle batter the night before so all you need to do in the morning is heat up the pan or iron. Pancakes are a blank canvas for flavor, so be creative! You can make different flavors of batter like pumpkin, or you can add fruit to the mixture like bananas or blueberries.” (Source)
A nice hot breakfast may bring back pleasant memories for your elderly loved one, who probably grew up on homemade hot breakfasts. Cold cereal has since won over subsequent generations, but there are still lots of hot breakfast lovers out there. You can become one of them too! Your elderly parent may need some help at home with personal or home care tasks. It’s such a boost to their confidence to have a home care provider helping them each day. It also helps them feel special to have a great companion and friend coming into their home each day to visit with and help them.
