Today’s increasingly busy lifestyles can make enjoying whole-grains and natural, seasonal foods in the morning seem like a challenge, forcing many of us to rely on store-bought yogurts, sugary prepared cereals, and other fast but not so healthy choices. Luckily, Megan Gordon’s Whole-Grain Mornings: New Breakfast Recipes to Span the Seasons ($22.00) offers a beautifully illustrated collection of sixty-five wholesome and inventive breakfast recipes that are so easy and convenient they are perfect for any day of the week. Seasonal recipes like Greens and Grains Scramble and Strawberry Rhubarb Quick Jam complement breakfast staples like Whole-Grain Pancake Mix and The Very Best Oatmeal. Natural sweeteners top tasty fare, such as infused honey drizzled over Rosemary Apricot Oatcakes, and a variety of homemade yogurts make even the staunchest avoider of breakfast eager to pull up a chair.
Featured throughout is an inspiring account of the author’s own personal journey, from her business success as the founder of Marge Granola and her relocation from San Francisco to Seattle, to stories of nostalgia and new-found love. Whether one is thumbing through the pages to savor the stories or just looking for a simple, easy-to-follow guide to the most important meal, Whole-Grain Mornings is a delightfully nourishing way to start the day.
