Breakfast Rocks

I feel like I’m so behind on blogging lately, but I think I’m starting to catch up. I’ve had so much prep work to do before our trip next week – plus I have a lot of fun things happening soon – so I’m just working through it all, one email, letter, and package at a time.

Thank goodness for filling, healthy, and balanced meals! They’re my saving grace lately, and I need all the sustenance I can get.

This morning was the one of the most ridiculous mornings I’ve had in a long time. I just could not decide what I wanted for breakfast. I went back and forth, back and forth, until I finally just started getting stuff out of the fridge and cabinets.

I ended up with a great meal, but it took me forever! Definitely could have used that time to finish getting ready on time.

One oatmeal/egg white pancake with almond butter and half a peach that I split with Nick.

Plus a long overdue green smoothie.

I can’t believe I got fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains all in one meal. And it tasted good, too.

It’s no surprise that breakfast is my favorite meal. I love it all – sweet and savory, carbs and protein, and the occasional chocolate thrown in there ;)

Some of my favorites over the past year and a half?

  1. YUM YUM YUM! breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day :)

  2. I realize last night that this is my last day in the office before vacation. I am excited and scared all at the same time. I thought I had more time. But it will be okay!

  3. Mmmm…your breakfasts are making me hungry! I tried overnight oats for the first time today – delish! (Now I just have to eat up the rest of my PB and then I can have OOIAJ!) :-D

  4. I love VOO with banana softserve. Actually I love any form of oats for breakfast. I prefer to have savory breakfast dishes like eggs for lunch or dinner or snacks. Oats make me happy :)

  5. YUMMMM I love breakfast too. Why do you keep tantalizing us with bfast porn at this hour? Oh the torture :D

  6. I just ate an egg and cheese sammy after my run – totally hit the spot!

  7. If we go out to breakfast I always order an omelette.
    I hate chopping all the veggies myself.

    At home I love eggos.

    Boy am I lazy!

  8. I love breakfast too! But I prefer eating it for lunch or dinner :) I was just thinking about how long it’s been since I’ve had a green smoothie and added the ingredients to my grocery list. Can’t wait! You make the best-looking breakfasts ever :)

  9. Ohh I love this post! Breakfast is my all time favorite :) Even though oatmeal’s the only thing that ever gives me energy or fills me up..I still look forward to it every day!

  10. I am nowhere NEAR as creative as you in the breakfast department! :) Lately, I’ve been sticking with my healthy, filling standby: 0% Greek yogurt with gluten-free, high-protein cereal and fruit (usually strawberries and blueberries). Keeps me full and happy for hours! Good luck getting everything done!

  11. Breakfast is my most favorite, too, but I usually stick to cereal mixed with greek yogurt – I love it too much to give it up!! I guess that’s why I have breakfast for dinner so much – eggs and toast or banana pancakes! :)

  12. Your breakfasts look great! Love all the variety. But it is your favorite meal after all!

    I’m REALLY boring when it comes to breakfast. Pretty much every day for the past year I have had oatmeal, yogurt, nuts and/or fruit. But I do eat “breakfast” foods like omelets and eggs for lunch and/or dinner quite often… :)

  13. I am so glad I’m not alone in the decision making department. I will stand and stare at the pantry for SO long trying to decide what to make for breakfast! I am usually trying to decide between a veggie & egg scramble w/ a whole wheat english muffin, PB and banana oat bran, or kodiak banana pancakes. Oh, or a veggie and egg sandwich! See I just lOVE breakfast!

  14. Breakfast cookie. Hands down.

  15. I could definitely live off of breakfast foods..I need to try your recipe for breakfast pizza sometime!
