They say it’s the most important meal of the day, whoever “they” are. Whether it is or not, I agree! I love breakfast. I enjoy morning routines. Coffee brewing, bacon frying, fresh fruit and the plethora of news and food photos streaming on my iPad to get my brain started for the day.
As much as I love making breakfast for myself, I eat out pretty often. I forget sometimes how it feels to create something yourself. I go through spurts of making breakfast every day to stopping by Bojangles every day. My life has no “grey area”. I’m either eating really well or really horrible! I could be going for a run after work or being a couch potato.
I used to hate anything other than simple white bread as a kid. Anything with nuts or seeds was gross. I’m now in my thirties and wouldn’t be caught dead buying white bread. I’ve found a love for seeded bread, specifically Eureka! Bread “Seeds the Day”. I’m also a sucker for clever names.
Here are some of my proud creations.
1 | toasted bread with whipped cinnamon honey topped with sliced banana, frozen blueberries, fresh raspberries sprinkled with pumpkin seeds and honey drizzle
2 | raspberry black coffee, fresh fruit, slice of pumpkin loaf
3 | oatmeal waffle with fresh raspberries and pecans, organic maple chicken sausage
4 | vanilla icelandic yogurt topped with pumpkin seeds, frozen raspberries, sliced almonds and chia seeds with a side of black coffee and glazed donut
5 | toasted bread with whipped cinnamon honey, fresh fruit and local cottage cheese dusted with fresh ground nutmeg
6 | french toast made with seeded bread drizzled with local honey and a side of frozen blueberries, uncured bacon, small fruit smoothie and black coffee
7 | smoothie bowl with dark chocolate chips, coconut, chia seeds, muesli, and slivered almonds
