I don’t know whether you’ve noticed, but I’ve put on a few pounds over the last three or four months. Personal stress, packing and moving, and just general laziness and threw me right out of balance, and before I knew it I was completely out of all my routines.

I usually cook up a pot at the beginning of the week and store it in the fridge, heating one serving at a time in the microwave with a little almond milk. It makes breakfast fast, easy, and wholesome. I also love mixing in good stuff to … More Raspberry Coconut Cacao Oats
I used to think I couldn’t have cereal in the morning anymore because cereal is pretty much straight carbs. Not so!

When I want savory I do eggs with toast or in a taco with sausage (yum!), but then I’m usually not getting enough whole grain and I’m … More Steel-cut Oats with Egg, Cheese and Scallions

Leftover veggies + roasted root veggies from my fridge + a couple of eggs as soon as this is all heated through = breakfast!
Fuel for starting again. #icandohardthings (I’d be happy to point you to the calculator I use for macros. Most use numbers that come out way too high, for me, but I’ve found one that seems to work well. Just comment below for help!)
Fast and tasty breakfast with a little oomph: whole grain toast spread with Dijon or whole grain mustard, ½ oz crumbled feta or goat cheese, a sunny side up egg, and some wilted spinach. Yay protein for breakfast! Thanks to Smitten Kitchen for the recipe.
