I am currently attending a dinner with a whole bunch of Boston bloggers. I’d like to do a separate recap on that, so I figured I’d share my breakfast and dinner with you for now. They were both so good, I just couldn’t let them go undocumented.
I used to eat breakfast at work so that I would delay the time of my first meal of the day. I thought that if I ate earlier, I’d get hungry for lunch (or a snack) way too early and end up overeating. Eventually, I realized that eating at home gives me a lot more flexibility. I actually get to eat exactly what I’m craving, instead of what I prepared the night before… in a dozen mini containers 😉 And my theory was wrong. My breakfasts are satisfying and get me through 11am usually when it’s time for my pre-workout snack.
This morning I woke up with nutella on the brain, so nutella breakfast it was!
1/2 Food for Life (FFL) english muffin with banana slices, NUTELLA, and chopped hazelnuts
+ 1/2 FFL english muffin with banana slices, nonfat yogurt and a drizzle of maple syrup
Oh yes, I went there. This was decadent yet healthy-ish and made me just a little more excited for the (week)day ahead of me.
Leftover 1/2 manchego stuffed pork chop with roasted red pepper-pepita sauce, fiddleheads, tomato, roasted red pepper and spicy mustard on a FFL sesame bun
+ a simple salad of mixed greens, fresh pepper and pepitas, dressed in basil EVOO and lemon juice
I was STUFFED in a good way (left a few bread bites). Leftovers do not need to be boring!!
What time do you usually eat breakfast? At home or at work?
