There’s one thing I’ve learned that makes mornings easier. Especially Monday mornings.
The THIH breakfast principle:
Choose something light and energizing for breakfast, and stick with it.
Taking all the guesswork out of breakfast means you’ll get out the door faster and still be properly fueled. For those who like variety (like me) set up a rotation of healthy favorites, like these:
And more to come in the next few weeks!
I follow my own principles, so this Monday Munchy (everything I ate over the course of a day) has a very familiar breakfast. Behold, everything I ate last Monday:
Breakfast, 8 am:
Smoothie with nonfat Greek yogurt, 1/2 fresh peach, 1/2 banana, 1/3 cup frozen blueberries, 2 tablespoons raw oats, handful raw spinach, water. Unpictured: Coffee with skim milk, Brazil nut, spoonful peanut butter.
Lunch, 12 pm:
Look familiar? I took these pictures three days after the last Monday Munchy, so I still had leftovers of my creamy pasta Alfredo (recipe here) with fresh ground black pepper. Served with fresh raw carrots and tomatoes and a tall glass of skim milk.
Finished with a handful of crisp spiced pecans:
A mug of Yorkshire Gold with a splash of skim milk. I always leave the tea bag in because I like my tea extra strong.
Snack, 4 pm:
My favorite Chobani flavor, passionfruit. So good!
Dinner, 6:30 pm:
Sweet ‘n’ sour noodles with crispy tofu (recipe coming up!). Check out the crispiness:
Ended the day with a square of date cake:
And an inch of leftover Muscato from our dinner party the week before:
Not bad for a Monday!
Q: What’s your favorite breakfast? Do you prefer your breakfast sweet or savory?
