Operation Skinny Jeans: Breakfast Faves

Breakfast Faves

On Wednesday nights, I have to write another blog for my gig as a Bar Trivia host, so Thursday posts are always hard for me. I was sharing my posts from the Live Well Colorado Get Movin Challenge, but now that that is over, I am going to have to get more creative. I was up until Midnight blogging for the other thing last night, so this post is brought to you by laziness :D

I was reading my daily blogs when I saw Skinny Meg was having a breakfast food link up! Sounds easy enough, I am gonna join that!

Before a workout, I almost always eat a piece of wheat toast with peanut butter and half a banana. I had no clue that Skinny Meg ate that too, so I feel way more validated in that decision. :D

After a workout, around 8-9am I have breakfast! My go-to's are oatmeal and yogurt and granola.
I like to use old fashioned oats and make them on the stove according to the package, and I add a tablespoon of Hemp Hearts and Chia Seeds to each bowl. A little bit of honey, a pinch of salt and I am in oatmeal heaven :D
For yogurt I take plain greek and add strawberries and blueberries, and a light drizzle of honey. If you find plain greek yogurt to be too bitter, try the vanilla kind.
I am pretty boring so I don't really switch up my breakfasts.
What do you normally have for breakfast? Anything that is super awesome that I just have to try?

  1. i just started making fannetastic food's microwave banana oatmeal and i am obsessed. so good and it keeps me full! i very rarely find breakfast foods that are easy [which is huge for me, because i'm so lazy] and filling so i'm especially excited about this one.

  2. That sounds super good! Do chia seeds have a weird texture? I've always wanted to try them & I've heard great things but I am weird when it comes to texture of foods lol.

  3. I change it up. Today I had plain greek yougurt and Cheerios then some raspberries for my morning snack.

  4. Eggs! 2 hardboiled eggs are my go to in the morning. I should start pairing them with something else, but that's the laziness in me!

  5. Why do I not know what hemp hearts are? I feel like I need them in my life asap!

  6. I love me a good smoothie!!

    Lately I have been doing eggs and sweet potato hash. It is super delicious.

    My other go to is egg whites, oatmeal and a banana.

  7. I LOVE oats for breakfast! I like mine with some vanilla protein powder, squeeze of honey, dash of cinnamon and covered with nuts and seeds. Never gets old. YUM! :)

  8. I absolutely love oats. I eat them almost everyday! Also, I make a mean egg white omelette with spinach and reduced fat feta. So good!
