Breakfast Week: Omega 3 Triple Berry Oatmeal

Breakfast Week: Omega 3 Triple Berry Oatmeal

Of all the meals in a day (including snacks) what’s your favorite? Ours is breakfast, or brunch, really. (But only if we’re making breakfasty things at brunch.) I’ve clearly passed the obsession on to my kid, and I often wonder if it’s nature or nurture. Is his love of all things brunch in his DNA or have I simply indoctrinated him?
