A while back, shortly after our chickens started laying eggs, the kids started complaining about having eggs for breakfast every day. They would eat them, but they weren’t always happy about it. I’m not necessarily a morning person, so I sleep in more than I should and give myself very little time to make something more fancy than scrambled eggs most days.
Paleo Protein Powder
My son is the worst offender when it comes to finishing his egg breakfast, and he’s always asking to have our protein instead. The solution was simple, make him his very own protein powder that he could make himself. You can’t go wrong with a peanut butter/chocolate drink before school, plus he’s got a little pride in being able to make his own food.
Easy, Homemade Protein Powder
This powder is really easy to throw together and can be adjusted for any quantity. Rather than exact measurements, it’s written out in “parts” so you can make as little or as much as you want. I usually use an entire canister of hemp protein powder and use that as the base of my ratios. It perfectly fills the container I use for the protein powder and lasts a long time around here.
And if you’re nut free, simply leave out the peanut butter powder. I sometimes leave it out and he loves it all the same.
