Breakfast Chronicles – Week 6-10

Well… I’ve been MIA for a while! I’m happy to say, though, that I have only skipped breakfast once. 🙂 I was out of the country on vacation for a couple of weeks, and had some very tasty breakfasts. I was in London, so I had a few traditional Full English breakfasts… Sausage, Bacon, Tomatoes, Baked Beans, Eggs.. Nom nom.

Now that I’m back at home and back to work, I’m staying on track and going with healthier options!

Below, my breakfasts this past week (Week 10):

Monday – Wholewheat waffle with peanut butter and strawberries

Breakfast Chronicles – Week 5

Well, I didn’t forget to eat breakfast last week, but I forgot to post! Here is what I ate for breakfast last week, including, rather naughtily, a pastry! My excuse is that I bought it the day before to meet the minimum credit card purchase amount at the cafe where I ate lunch. So I had to buy it! And it was just sitting there, begging me to eat it for breakfast! Hmm. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 😉

Monday – Chocolate Fiber One cereal with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and blueberries (like eating dessert for breakfast, but under 200 calories, and full of fiber!)

Breakfast Chronicles – Week 4

Whew, another week gone by! I’ve been doing this series for 4 weeks now – lets see if I can pull it off for another month and beyond! I’ve been trying to incorporate healthy, filling foods into my breakfast, as well as making sure I eat it every day, so that I don’t binge on junk the rest of the afternoon. I’ve failed a few times – today I grabbed a Clif bar at 11:30am – but for the most part I’ve been doing well.

What do you like to eat for breakfast? Do you have a hard time remembering to eat breakfast during the week?

Breakfast Chronicles – Week 3

Better late than never, here is Week 3 in my Breakfast Chronicles series! I had oat bran (as a hot cereal) for the first time last week, and it was really tasty. It has a nice nutty flavor and is very filling. Have you tried oat bran? Do you like it?

What did you have for breakfast this week?

 

Breakfast Chronicles – Week 1

I love breakfast foods, but I sometimes have trouble remembering to eat breakfast (or convincing myself to) during the week. I don’t like to eat right after I wake up, and once I start work, a couple of hours usually pass before I realize, “hey, I should eat something.” By that time, I don’t really feel hungry. But if I don’t eat breakfast, I can’t focus as well, and I tend to eat more than I should at lunch and dinner.

To keep myself accountable and make sure I eat breakfast (almost) every day, I decided to chronicle my weekday breakfasts here on this blog. Here’s week 1!

How about you? Do you have trouble remembering to eat breakfast? What are your favorite weekday breakfast foods?

Monday -Nothing (not a great start – but I was sick with a stomach bug)

Tuesday – A couple of handfuls of dry Kashi cereal (still recovering from stomach bug)

Wednesday – Oatmeal with Peanut Butter & Strawberries

Thursday – Oatmeal Raisin Clif Bar

Friday – Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Brown Sugar, Slivered Almonds, and Blueberries
