Last week I challenged myself to get out of my breakfast rut and make something different for breakfast each day of the week. I normally make eggs and toast or eggs and avocado or eggs and cheese… and I was kind of tired of it. I go with eggs because they help me stay full all morning but they also get kind of boring. As I mentioned last week, I always seem to remember to take breakfast photos for WIAW but not the rest of the day so today we’re going with ALL OF THE BREAKFAST PHOTOS!
Monday: The usual, egg whites topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and sliced avocado. I cut up a big bowl of fruit and berries and ate half of it with breakfast and took the rest to work with my lunch.
Tuesday: Oatmeal, cooked with egg whites and flax seed, topped with blackberries, strawberries, chia seeds, chopped brazil nuts, and coconut. I added unsweetened almond milk after the photo.
Wednesday: Toast with peanut butter, banana, and macadamia nuts, as well as almond milk blended with a scoop of protein powder and ice.
Thursday: BREAKFAST TACOS. Those capital letters hopefully convey to you how excited I was to be eating breakfast tacos. I used two small whole wheat tortilla shells, scrambled an egg for each of them, a swipe of pesto, havarti cheese, and chopped tomatoes. I munched on some blueberries while I cooked the eggs because the runger was all too real.
Friday: The sweetest Jo gave me some FlapJacked protein pancake mix to try, and I was so excited to try them that I totally forgot to photograph it. I mean, you can probably guess what pancakes look like, but these ones were pretty thin and I topped them with peanut butter (obviously) and a bit of maple syrup.
They were pretty good and really filling! I have another couple packages of the apple cinnamon variety to try and I can’t wait! I liked trying something new for breakfast each day because it helped me get out of a breakfast rut. Now that it’s pretty warm every morning now I come home from my run craving something cold so this next week might just have to be breakfast smoothie week!
