Hello people of the internet!
Recently, breakfast has been my favorite meal of the day. There are so many options to choose from and it generally requires very little prep and effort to put together. And I love that I can play around with the different components to make it look extra pretty. :) It makes the breakfast experience so much more enjoyable! Ever since I started my new part-time job, I’ve been dedicating extra time in the morning to get ready and then enjoy nice meal to fuel me until lunch time rolls around. Here are some of my breakfast eats recently!
My all-time favorite fruit are blueberries and I love eating them partly frozen with greek yogurt, sprinkled with walnuts and chia seeds. On this particular morning I also decided to treat myself to some yummy chocolate. SO gooood.
My mom and I love to make hot banana oatmeal in the morning. The banana gives the oatmeal such a delicious natural sweetness as it cooks with the oats. Our favorite add-ins are raisins, chia seeds, and cinnamon. This one below has chia seeds, ground flaxmeal with layered strawberries and cinnamon sprinkled on top.
On days that I want something quick and easy, overnight oats are the way to go! I made this the night before by mixing oats, vanilla almond milk, chia seeds, ground flaxmeal, and strawberries. I also added sliced bananas to make this a happy meal! :)
Sometimes, in the morning I grab some Starbucks before work. My favorite hot drink is their soy cappucino. Such a satisfying drink! Anyone ever have a barista totally get their name wrong? I guess “Anna” was mistaken for “Emma”. Strangely, I didn’t really mind; I kinda liked it! Maybe I secretly wish my name was Emma. :D What’s your favorite Starbucks drink??
Ahhh I remember on this day I was running late to work so I ate this quest bar for breakfast. This flavor is AMAZING. By far my favorite of the Quest Bar line. Tastes like eating a candy bar! I felt slightly guilty. Not really.
During the weekend, I tried making Blogilate’s banana/egg pancakes. Everyone raves about them. Mine came out like this. They just keep getting darker and darker! Maybe the bananas were getting ripened as I cooked them. These were okay. Definitely needed a side of maple syrup.
Can’t go wrong with green smoothies for breakfast! Packed with good-for-you nutrients from spinach, bananas, apples, greek yogurt, chia seeds, ground flaxmeal, cinnamon.
If you know me you would know that I can live off bread – specially Asian buns. I grew up eating Chinese buns my whole life and it just never gets old. It’s definitely an awesome Chinese staple. I recently discovered this Japanese Honey Bun that’s just out of this world! The bread interior was so fluffy, with the exterior sweetened with a nice crunch. I had no idea there was a filling and was blown away by the delicious milk custard inside. It wasn’t super sweet or greasy at all. I’m totally going back for more. :D
This tuna salad on toast really hits the spot. It consists of celery, tuna, apples, salt and pepper, squeeze of a lemon, and a greek yogurt-based dressing. My tummy is so satisfied after having two of these!
Lastly, wash everything down with a nice cup of hot tea. Current favorite: Trader Joe’s chamomile tea.
What’s your favorite breakfast? What have you been loving lately? I’d love to know!
