Healthy Breakfast Choices for Passover

I don’t know about your family but mine starts to get very tired of the typical Passover fare by the fourth day of this eight-day holiday.  And I feel it’s my duty as a mom and a nutritionist to make healthy and delicious meals so they don’t get grumpy.   It’ s a long holiday so it is smart to have a variety of meals you can put together to keep everyone happy and nourished.  Many of the traditional foods such as potato pancakes, matzoh ball soup and vegetable kugels can be enjoyed at either lunch or dinner.  Where I find the most groans is with breakfast.  My family loves cereal so it can be difficult to come up with enjoyable replacements for eight days.  For those who eat cereal most days for breakfast, the Passover cereals in the grocery store can be a real downer.  However there are some delicious breakfasts you can put together to keep everyone happy.  These are some of my family’s favorites: hot quinoa with raisins and chopped walnuts, whole wheat matzoh with almond butter and organic strawberry jam, sweet matzoh kugel made with whole wheat matzoh, eggs, raisins and chopped walnuts along with fresh fruit salad.  A delicious  granola made with whole wheat matzoh farfel, slice almonds and dried fruit.  If you have any great suggestions for Passover breakfast meals please pass them on.
