"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Daily Breakfast Dilemma

Lately, I've been waking up and deliberating what to eat for breakfast. If breakfast is the most important meal of the day, how come there aren't more interesting and healthy options? I can only jazz up oatmeal and omelettes in so many ways. 
Yesterday, after griping about breakfast on FB, I ended up eating leftover rice with an egg, diced tomatoes, red bell pepper and basil with some sesame oil and soy sauce. I was feeling rebellious and not wanting to eat a "breakfast food," because it's mostly all crap that's bad for you.

Then I got some good ideas for future breakfasts from some friends:

- Omelette made in a rice cooker: http://bit.ly/aUzl4x.
- Granola and yogurt (which I do from time to time)
- Bircher muesli - 1 can of fruit cocktail or fresh cut fruit, some fried oats (fried in butter and sugar - don't let it burn), a bit of honey, some lemon juice, a grated apple and plain yogurt - you can make a lot and eat it through the week
- And although this might be stretching it for me: "Cold rice is good for breakfast! With granola, if I have it, and bananas and milk."

If you have any other HEALTHY ideas, please share!
