Breakfast

Every once in a while I am asked what I eat for breakfast. I thought if people ask me this in person, it might be a good thing to share here too.

I don’t like to eat the same thing each day, so I mix it up a bit. If a weekday and I have time, I will make a smoothie of soy or almond milk, silken tofu or almond butter, kale, spinach, chia seeds, banana, and whatever fruit I have on hand. These are delicious and I don’t get bored since the fruit and protein always change. If I have more time, I will make toast with freeze-dried wheatgrass and almond butter. If less time, make instant oatmeal that doesn’t have any sugar in it and add some nuts. With the least time, I have protein powder and soy or almond milk. Protein powder is difficult for me because I don’t like the taste of most of them. There are a couple I can tolerate and if I ever come across one that I think is extra yummy, I will share.

On the weekends, if there is time, I will make something more special like pancakes or waffles, but those are certainly a rarity.

So, there it is. Not super exciting. But I have found that by getting protein and vegetables first thing in the morning, I stay full longer and have more energy. I exercise first thing each morning, so eating afterwards is a good thing. I have tried eating uncooked oatmeal mixed with fruit and non-dairy milk or juice. I am not a big fan, but every person likes different things. You may really enjoy it.

What do you normally eat for breakfast?
