The Most Important Meal of the Day

Obviously, I’m speaking about breakfast. Even though the week is still relatively young, I’ve had some great starts to my work days already. The first was a “healthified” version of the Egg McMuffin:

We use Arnold Sandwich Thins, eggs, reduced fat mozzarella cheese and Morningstar Veggie Bacon. It’s DELICIOUS, but also tastes good with avocado, mustard, horseradish, etc. Very satisfying.

Another star this week has been (surprise, surprise) a smoothie! This version, however, contains a new ingredient:

I have to say, I couldn’t taste the difference between when I used a scoop of PB2 and the times I used the real deal. That is unbelievable to me. I mixed it with Chocolate Muscle Milk Protein Powder, three fresh strawberries, a banana, Vanilla Chobani and ice. Par for the course, it rocked.

The fact that I enjoyed these two new breakfasts so much really clarified for me that I don’t branch out a lot at breakfast. Dinner is usually the meal where we try new things, different ingredients, etc. Breakfast and lunch are more mundane, which sometimes is a good way to sink into my routine, but I’m going to try to change that. I think it starts at the grocery store. I made more of an effort to plan this week as I had hoped to do in my Kitchen Resolutions, but the pre-meditation mostly went to dinnertime meals. I suppose it’s a gradual process, but one I plan to be more mindful of in the future.

Anyone have any wonderful breakfast/lunch ideas I can snag?
