I have to admit something...I don't like breakfast. I never have. I'm not a morning person, and I just don't like preparing food in the morning unless it's super easy. I also don't like cereal, which takes away a lot of easy breakfast options. I used to skip breakfast quite often, but I now try to eat at least a little breakfast in the morning.
Going meatless in the morning isn't hard for me. I do enjoy having a little sausage or ham in the morning on occasion - if someone else makes it - but I also find that I prefer a lighter breakfast these days. So, here are a couple of my current favorite breakfasts - fast, easy, light, and delicious!
First, yogurt with fruit and granola. So easy! Chop up whatever fresh fruit you happen to have on hand and top with yogurt. I like to use either vanilla yogurt or 2% Greek yogurt with a little honey. Top with some granola - homemade or store bought - and mix. Delicious!
Next, a breakfast that is even easier and just as tasty. Quarter a banana and top with a smear of peanut butter, a tablespoon or so of raisins, and a dusting of cinnamon. Voila! Fast and tasty!
A great thing about these breakfasts (outside of them being easy, fast, and tongue-tempting) is that they have a nice combo of sweetness, fiber, and protein. The sweetness makes my tongue happy, and the fiber and protein keep me going all morning.
If you shun breakfast as I do, give these a try. It might make you change your mind about the most important meal of the day!
