Most of my breakfasts over the holidays consisted of yogurt with granola and a grapefruit with the occasional treat of cinnamon rolls and hashbrown casserole thrown in there.
While the yogurt, granola and a grapefruit did an excellent job of starting my day well, sometimes I need to mix it up a little. I think that a healthy but filling breakfast sets the tone for the rest of the day, even if there are little splurges in it. Of course, I still love my overnight oats but have I mentioned the laziness? I may just get back into my routine of them though with this new year.
Some of the other options I discovered were a whole grain English muffin with just a tough of peanut butter while it’s still warm so that the peanut butter gets all melty. And a piece of fruit on the side.
Or for a special, wintry treat, I made some oatmeal on the stove but threw in some cranberries. The cranberries got all warm and juicy and were the perfect addition to my oatmeal with some cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top.
Sometimes in the morning, it’s hard for me to realize I’m full and not keep grazing. I try to always isolate if I’m hungry or not and sometimes a cup of coffee sipped slowly helps me to digest and feel just right.
