Healthy, Fruity Breakfast Hand Tarts
Very Good 4.2/5
(20 ratings)

Ditch the toaster pastry. They're loaded with sugar and fat--and not much else. My hand tarts are full of fruit, and if you make them ahead of time your kids can grab them and go.

Roasted Buckwheat Breakfast Cereal
Good 3.7/5
(12 ratings)

Cold, it crunches and pops in your mouth with a bold, nutty taste. Hot, it becomes smooth and more mellow. Either way, buckwheat (kasha) is a healthy, hearty breakfast.
