Breakfast: My (Almost) Every Day Go-To

| 0 comments

I love breakfast! Breakfast foods, anyway, just not usually at breakfast time.  But I have been really good in recent months about eating breakfast food at a reasonably breakfast-y hour!  I mix it up a little every now and then (like with these PANCAKES, for example), but this is pretty much my daily go-to breakfast: A fiber cereal and granola mix, with plain non-fat yogurt and fruit. In the winter, I often eat oatmeal instead, but the “winters” are short here in Florida, so cold cereals are my mainstay much of the year.

Notice the food scale in the shot, which I have posted about previously as being a MUST HAVE. And for me, that goes double with cereals. Otherwise, I will bust out my Jethro bowl and GO TO TOWN on that ish! Seriously. Even as I type, I can hear my Jethro bowl and the four boxes of Quaker Oatmeal Squares that I got as BOGOs, trying to lure me into the kitchen!

Pictured here is Love Grown Foods‘ Sweet Cranberry Pecan granola, which I LOVE! It makes it on my “Favoritest Faves!” list for sure.  I order this from Amazon, as it is hard to find in my local stores. I have tried many, many kinds of granola, and this is by far my fave.  Also, it’s not just delicious-but-unhealthy clumps of  fat and sugar that some granolas can be.  But although it is quite reasonable, even “healthy” granolas are calorie dense, so I mix it with Fiber One Original to get a little more food in mah belly without the crazy calories.  I add a half-cup of plain non-fat yogurt (a long-time favorite of mine and more filling than my precious, precious milk), and berries/fruit de jour and end up with a yummy, fast and filling breakfast.  Oh, and because I am trying to boost my protein intake a little, I also eat a couple of boiled egg whites, or better yet, a couple egg-white & veggie mini-frittata-like-thingies that I bake in a muffin tin.  Another future post! :)

Today’s breakfast combo, with raspberries, blueberries and 2 mini-frittata-thingies came to approx. 326 calories. Get the Nutrition Info in this post.

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya!
