". . . little shall I grace my cause

In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,

I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."

(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

Quick and Healthy Breakfast

Not long ago, my Lutheran homeschooling email list spent some time discussing breakfast. One of the list members asked for easy breakfast ideas and received such suggestions as bagels with cream cheese, toast with fruit spread, yogurt with granola, oatmeal, and boiled eggs. I have another suggestion to add to the list:

Dark chocolate covered raisins.

You think I'm kidding.

I'm not kidding. I had them for breakfast today. Just think about it: by eating dark chocolate covered raisins, you get to enjoy all the health benefits of both dark chocolate and raisins. And if you have them with coffee while you're reading email and blogs, I can guarantee you will start the day off with the right attitude.

Go ahead. Try it sometime, with my blessing. (Just don't tell my 5-year-old, okay?)

and if you get tired of those, don't forget dark chocolate covered blueberries and cranberries. I suffer through them for those good antioxidants ;)

YES! RUT readers, this is why I read RPW's blog and you should, too. She is not only brilliant but a woman after my own heart who clearly has impeccable taste.

If you add some chocolate covered coffee beans yoll get more of a caffeine jolt. Chocolate covered peanuts and almonds provide much needed protein too.
