Breakfast Boredom

I’ve mentioned before that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Usually, it consists more of “meals” than “meal.” I eat eggs for lunch, or waffles, yogurt, etc. I could eat breakfast foods all day long. I get overly excited when restaurants serve breakfast all day. But lately, I’ve been hitting a wall when trying to create new breakfast dishes.

I tend to eat a lot of carbs. What can I say? They’re good and you know it! I feel like my meals center around carbs quite a bit. So my new challenge is, coming up with breakfast dishes that don’t center around carbs. You might say, well how about eggs?

I love eggs…but I can only eat so many fried eggs or scrambled eggs with veggies. I need to come up with some more creative mixings or uses…

This morning my breakfast was pretty standard: cereal. Nothing creative about it. Except of course the brilliant move of slicing bananas on top.

I had some Kashi Heart To Heart cereal. It’s actually pretty good. Kind of like Cheerios, except it just tastes healthier. Here are its’ stats:

Not too shabby…but keep in mind this is for 3/4 cup of the cereal. I’m pretty hungry in the morning so I probably eat like, double that. One of these morning’s I’ll measure out 3/4 cup just out of curiosity. That’s the thing with cereal, the nutrition stats are always based on small serving sizes. I’m pretty sure no one is full off of 3/4 cup of cereal. At least I’m not!

I had some Extra Bold coffee to go along with my extra bold bowl of cereal.

I’m a big fan of the Keurig coffee maker. I love that you can make different types of coffee everyday without buying a million bags of coffee. On the downside, you do have to buy the little k-cups. Those tiny little cups of coffee are not exactly cheap. They are fun though…a little too fun to shop for!

As you can see, I brought out the “A Team” mug this morning..

B-A-N-A-N-A-S

My question for ya’ll is…..what are your favorite breakfast dishes? What is your “go to” breakfast…? Any new, unique suggestions on dishes with eggs?

I appreciate your help! Your comments are bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

  • That sounds delicious but I’m still working on finishing my Cheerios! I’ll get to buying that box I promise! :)

    I definitely want to try out those Chocolate PB Protein Pancakes! I tried some this morning that turned out pretty good, but still need some tweaking, but I’ll share anyway…

    1/2 C Quaker Oats
    1/2 C Egg Beaters
    1/2 C Plain NF yogurt (last time I followed the recipe using cottage cheese and they fell apart and didn’t have a nice texture-next time I want to experiment with greek yogurt, but didn’t have any on hand)
    Cinnamon
    Vanilla

    I mashed up some blackberries and used them instead of syrup… YUM!

    Thanks for all the great ideas!!

      oats are a good idea! ill have to throw those in next time. ya i’ve read a lot of protein pancake recipes with cottage cheese but i just never buy it….so i figured maybe greek yogurt could be a good substitute? i think it worked out pretty well. thanks for the comment! :)
