What’s for Breakfast?

On P10, the most important meal of the day and the one you really don’t have time to deal with are the same meal….breakfast.  I loves me some breakfast but sometimes it seems like I have the same thing every day for weeks (refried beans, eggs, cheese and avocado).  Or I just fall back on my go-to breakfast, the OMG Smoothie.

But seriously, most of the items I’d have eaten for breakfast before are no longer an option on P10, especially Stage 1 – so what DO we have for breakfast?

Brinner – let’s forget about ‘breakfast’ being eggs, toast and bacon.  Why can’t breakfast be leftover dinner?  Or leftover lunch?  Heat it up and you’re done.  And you’d probably be out the door faster.

Eggs – I also love eggs but daaaaaaang, eggs for breakfast every single day can get old really fast.  There’s only a several hundred different ways you can eat them but there’s a limit, ya know?  So I won’t go over all the different ways you can prepare them, but the recipe is:  eggs + some other stuff = breakfast scramble.

Smoothies – sure, that’s quick and easy but that can also get old fast.  And same thing, there’s only several thousand ways you can make them, once again, basic recipe: liquid + other stuff = breakfast smoothie.

Moving on…

So how about some great quick and easy breakfast ideas?  Here’s the first one:  make something ahead of time, hide it from the kids and eat that for breakfast.  And to keep from eating the same thing every day for a week, make TWO things ahead and time and alternate or at least rotate in some brinner, eggs or smoothies.

All of the recipes below are on the blog and can be found by using the Label menu on the right hand side of the home page – just click on Breakfast.

Here are some items you can make on your day off, slice and freeze (or hide in fridge) to have a ready-made breakfast:

So now you can sleep tight, get up early, work out on the treadmill and then treat yourself to a decent breakfast before you head off to start your I do.  Honestly and truly.  Especially the treadmill part.  Stop snickering at me.
