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!
