what's for breakfast?
Good morning everyone! So, I'm having a bit of a breakfast struggle and I was hoping you could help me out. I've gotten into a little rut here. You see, most mornings start with two slices of toast topped with some cheddar cheese. Occasionally there's some sliced avocado on top. Sometimes there's a side of scrambled or fried eggs. Now and then there's a piece of fruit. And of course, there's always coffee, but was that ever really a question?
Don't get me wrong, I love me some bread and cheese. I think it might be my favorite meal of all time, in fact. However, I think I might need to be starting my day with something lighter. Something that still fills me up, but gives me a little more energy. Maybe I'm imagining it, but I've started to think that the carbs and cheese in the mornings are making me drag a bit, especially as I start my workday. After my ten minute bike ride to work, I'm often ready for a snack by 10am.
Today, in my effort to branch out, I had a bowl of plain yogurt with a sliced peach, some flax seeds and a little drizzle of maple syrup. Sometimes I will break out from my toast with cheese, and have some granola and yogurt, or homemade muffins but we don't always have those other options. And even when we do, honestly, I usually go for the bread and cheese anyways.
So tell me, what are you eating for breakfast these days? What have you noticed gives you the most energy in the mornings? Enjoy your Mondays, friends!
