You know those times when you decide to switch up your normal routine just a little bit? Aren’t those the best?
Case and point: I always have 2 multi-grain Van’s waffles drizzled with local honey for breakfast. Seriously, every day since last December. I love them because they’re easy, decently filling and cheap. But today I looked in my fridge and felt the need for change. Morning are my best study time, I do most of my work in the morning hours, so they tend to be the most monotonous.
How do we fight monotony?
Change and color.
Enter my first ever smoothie in a bowl.
No, you are not reading Kaitlin’s blog. I actually made a unique, delicious breakfast and then I added granola on top. This is not the usual for me!
What can I say, I saw farmer’s market strawberries and Greek yogurt. Before I knew it I was throwing things into the blender.
- 4 chopped strawberries (if you live in So Cal it’s a crime not to eat the fresh berries we have right now. They are in-sane!)
- Handful of frozen pineapple
- 1 0% fat Fage Greek Yogurt
- Generous pour unsweetened original almond milk
- Topped with granola, bought bulk from Whole Foods, because that’s how I roll
I cannot lie. This was amazing. Not only was it nice to have fresh fruit with my breakfast but the smoothie was so cold and refreshing. I’m not a big fan of yogurt bowls, so this is a good way for me to get some dairy into my diet. I don’t think that I would eat this for breakfast every day but I do foresee more smoothie bowls in my future!
Do you have go-to meals? What are your old standbys? I’m pretty uncreative when it comes to breakfast!
