“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”
Breakfast is my favorite time of the day. And I’m so glad this Breakfast Challenge is getting me out of the box and trying some new stuff! But the best part has been seeing all the goodies you guys have been whipping up in the kitchen. More on that later in the post!!
This morning I was craving eggs. And yogurt. So I decided to have both.
First, I put together a fruit kabob. I layered a peach, 1/2 a banana, and a kiwi on a skewer stick. On the side I had a bowl of plain, non-fat yogurt with a T. of crushed flax and topped with 2 T. of Natures Path Pumpkin Granola. It was so much fun to dunk and eat and crunch!!
For my egg sandwich, I simply sprayed a frying pan with cooking spray, and fried a whole egg + 1 egg white. Once it was flipped, I threw on a slice of cheese and sandwiched it between a whole wheat english muffin. I used to eat my eggs burnt and crispy, before I went through a stage where I wanted my egg yolk to be runny. Now I like it just cooked long enough to be soft and fluffy but not runny. It’s the happy medium.
Now, granted, today was my rest day. I wasn’t planning on running or biking. Just a walk at the most. But still…this breakfast was filling and kept me full for a good 5 hrs. which absolutely never—never, ever, ever—happens. Loved it!
Breakfast Challenge: Day 5: Huge success!!!
But enough about my breakfasts!! Considering that Sunday is usually a Higlight Day, I thought I’d highlight on some of your breakfasts! I couldn’t get all of them in, but I’ll be posting one more “Breakfast Post” on Wednesday when I finish up my Breakfast Challenge of the week! So I’ll be sure to post some more goodies then!
Oh, and just as a SIDE NOTE: If you love what you see and want to see more, visit these lovely lady’s blogs out!! They’re full of good eats and can help you remake the same breakfast at home too.
Drum Roll Please…
What does Alison make that doesn’t look good? But I do believe this bowl of goodness may top the list…
Christina whipped this delightful overnight bowl of oats together. There are a ton of goodies in there…cherries, bananas, strawberries…love it!
Holly combines good taste with snazzy style in this pretty bowl of creaminess!
Angharad is so creative!! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to highlight on her sweet bowl of oats with chocolate chips or her recent breakfast burrito. So I chose the breakfast burrito. But go check out the sweet oats if you get the chance. I plan on making ‘em soon!
Check out this breakfast roll-up!! Valerie knows where it’s at. Peanut butter + jam + banana…can’t beat it!
I’m for sure re-creating this soon! This lady knows how to mix up her breakfasts all the time, and I had the hardest time choosing one breakfast to highlight. But cottage cheese with fruit, almonds and granola made for such a pretty and delicious dish, that I had to pick this breakfast! Go check out some other goodies!
I’m a newbie to Janetha’s blog, but I’m already in love with her sense of good food and style! Check out this pretty breakfast parfait!
There are so many more good eats out there that I’m wondering why I didn’t mix up my breakfasts a looong time ago! It’s fun to get creative!!!
I can’t believe the weekend has already gone by! But this past weekend was very refreshing, so I’m ready to get to work tomorrow on important internship papers that need to get done by the end of the week! Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend!!
