HELLO Friday! So it was 65-70 degrees and sunny all week here on Nantucket...AMAZING! I was giddy that I was able to wear shorts, leave the doors and windows open, sit outside in the mornings to eat my breakfast. Enjoying these days as much as possible, because I have a feeling it will be like a light switch and I will be moaning about how cold I am...Right?
But back to breakfast...I LOVE breakfast! I love enjoying it after a busy early morning of work, clients, and my workout. When I get back to the house, I whip it up and make sure it is hearty, delicious, and packed with all the nutrients to keep me happy and healthy. And this week they were ALL out of bowls, hence the title. So let us take a look at my breakfasts during the week...
For those mornings when all I want is crunchy, hearty, and large clusters of granola, this breakfast gets satisfies all of those needs. Michele's Cherry Chocolate Granola is DELICIOUS! I could easily eat half the bag, so I measure a serving and then pick out all the large clusters to eat on the side. Granola clusters make me happy...It is the little things, friends. In this bowl I added:
- 1 cup Greek Yogurt;
- 1/3 c Michele's Cherry Chocolate Granola + large clusters on the side;
- 1/4 c unsalted almonds
Pumpkin pancake for the WIN! So simple and so easy and the perfect combo of nutrients to eat after a busy morning and a hard workout. This pancake keeps me full for hours and yes I eat my pancakes out of a bowl and with a spoon because I don't want to waste ANY of that nut butter.
- Pumpkin Pancake
- 1 diced apple;
- HEAPING spoonful of peanut butter!
One of my FAVORITE things about being an entrepreneur is that I create my own hours. Yes, I start sending emails around 6:15 AM and I have a tendency to work on the weekends, but that is okay because I love what I do. And I love when a friend says it is time to go out for a boat ride because it is 70 degrees and feels like Summer. Pack up a big breakfast bowl and run out the door. I packed this container with:
- 1 cup of Greek yogurt;
- 2 cups of larger than life green grapes;
- 1/4 c unsalted almonds!
And there was the really ugly but delicious breakfast bowl! It is funny how some of the best and most satisfying meals can sometimes truly be the ugliest. This smoothie did not disappoint, but gosh it was really ugly looking. I am trying out Rootz Nutrition for the first time and I have to say that this Paleo Protein Superfood was pretty darn good. More information to come later on this. In this smoothie I added:
I do not know about y'all, but I have been eating a LOT of apples lately! They are so good and go with everything and pair really well with peanut butter...Obviously! I have been eating 3-4 per week. Tis the season! I make protein pancakes a lot (because they are super easy) but will usually switch up the fruit to whatever I am craving or have in the fridge. In this bowl I whipped up:
What is your favorite breakfast bowl these days?
What Fall fruit can you not get enough of?
