Whole-Grain Mornings, by Megan Gordon

Want to breakfast better? Inside you’ll find a seasonal collection of enticing recipes for sweet and savory whole-grain breakfasts, brunches, snacks and accompaniments. Take a peek!

  • From busy weekdays to slow Sundays, Whole-Grain Mornings will inspire readers to look beyond their average bowl of cereal towards healthy and delicious ways to incorporate whole grains into morning meals. Seasonal recipes include Blueberry Breakfast Bars, Greens and Grains Scramble, Zucchini Farro Cakes, and Apricot Pistachio Granola. Featuring food and lifestyle photography along with a guide to the most commonly used whole grains and natural sweeteners – this cookbook is as visually rich as it is refreshingly useful.
  • "I've always wanted to write a breakfast book. It’s the meal we all start with, the meal that ushers us into the day. Even more, I wanted to write a book that reflects the way I do breakfast, acknowledging the fact that what we eat in the mornings looks different on a cold, gray morning in February than it does on a sunny morning in June. A busy Wednesday brings about different breakfast options than does a leisurely Sunday... It’s with this that I hope you continue to return back to the book as the months pass, the seasons change, and friends and family trickle in and out to join you at the breakfast table throughout the year."
