My New Favorite Breakfast

Traditionally I have always favored sweets when it comes to breakfast food (that darn sweet tooth of mine!) but I have been experimenting with savory starts to my day this Summer and have come up with a combination I am absolutely in love with! It's fast, easy, healthy and oh so yummy! It's like a little Caprese Salad but the breakfast version.

I start with half a cup of cottage cheese (give or take, I don't really measure), top with fresh tomatoes, fresh basil leaves, a drizzle of olive oil and some fresh ground black pepper. If I'm feeling really decadent then I might add some walnuts. I love having this meal before yoga because it's light enough to have before working out but gives me a little protein boost which keeps me full but gives me lots of energy. This breakfast is definitely going to be added to my long term repertoire, yum!

June Photos

 Well here it is almost the end of July and I am just now getting June photos up on the blog, most of which have already appeared on facebook. Oh well, blogging fail! I took almost no pictures in June until close to the end of the month when Eric gave me a new camera as an early birthday present! Of course after that I couldn't stop taking pictures!

Most of these photos are from the day we went to the High museum with the kids. They have some really cool interactive sculptures in the courtyard area and we also saw an Eric Carle exhibit (among other things).

The High has a great kids section with lots of fun things to play with. Needless to say this was their favorite part.

These last photos are from Natural Learning Alternative, the preschool coop where I take the kids (and where I will be teaching this Fall!). We absolutely love it there and are so thrilled to have found a place that fits our educational philosophy so well.

For my actual Birthday I got a new camera lens to go with my new camera so I have been taking lots of photos this month as well. We also have a big vacation coming up so I should have LOTS of photos to share from July!
