Speaking of spilling, I have a confession To Spill before we get started…
I have a new #BlogCrush. Shhhh don’t tell.
I recently checked out Mr. Arman’s blog (at The Big Man’s World) and I have to say that I’m hooked. His posts are truly an inspiration to read not to mention they are fun and quite informative as well. I really appreciate how the topics he presents are totally relevant to some of the things I’m currently struggling with nutritionally and it makes me sit back and take a hard look at my own diet and contemplating if certain changes and/or experimentation might be of use to me. A great, light-hearted and comical blogger he is and I would totally recommend checkin him out! #SharingTheLove
Anyways, enough secret spilling and onto the topic of the day…which is also a link-up from Arman’s blog I might add…
This is the best time for me to jump into this partay as it’s all about one of my favourite meals (and a favourite to everyone else here it seems!)…
Let’s begin shall we?
Now I’m not really one for selfies…in fact I really despise taking pictures of myself because I never think they look good but if I must…
Now you see why I don’t do selfies….
What is your classic go to breakfast choice?
If you have been following me for a bit you know there is really only one answer here…
Oatmeal…Zee Rest Day Zoats.
Proats. Zoats. Whatever! As long as it’s pipin hot and topped with goodies (why hello there nut butter, Questie turds and melted fruit :-P), it’s heaven in a bowl for me. I have done baked oatmeal in the past, and it’s good too, but always go back to my mushy bowl of goodness. Drroool.
Favourite sweet style breakfast?
Let me repeat myself sloooowwllly…Cinnamon Swirl eggy-chia proats topped with 1/4 of a cookie dough Questbar and a tsp each of raw cashew butter and Nuts n’More Toffee peanut butter.
Oatmeal addict in the house. Proats are the way to this girls heart.
Favourite savoury style breakfast?
Does savory and breakfast belong in the same sentence? I kid. I kid. 😉 I know many of you love your savory breaky’s I just never have’m. If I did though, it may look something like a chunk of sweet tater or, better yet, kabocha with a blob of nut butter along side a veggie egg scramble of sorts. I have very much been intrigued by the idea of putting nut butter on a sweet tater or squash because they are both my favs BUT this combo threatens my addiction to them both being savory and never sweet. No cinnamon or syrup has ever come anywhere near my taters or squash. Not Ever!
OR Leah Peter’s breakfast plates…Exception! A nut butter of some kind would be added to these oats. Breakfast is not breakfast without nut butter IMO!
Spill it! I used to have an omelet on the side of my oatmeal back in the day (lol last year) when I hadn’t figured out that adding my egg whites to my oatmeal is beyond amazing for not only fluffiness but also VOLUME! Bigger and puffier oats that last me longer >>>>> flat oats + omelet.
I know that’s still not the most savory breakfast, but work with me here! That’s as far as I will stretch! 😉
Share a breakfast recipe you are a fan of- It can be your own or another bloggers!
I don’t really stray that often but here’s one of my oldies that was quite yummy! My Vanilla Banana Chunk Oatmeal ‘Cake.’ Recipe here.
Strangest breakfast you’ve ever eaten?
Technically this wasn’t really breakfast as it was quite late for that BUT it was my first meal of that day.Wasn’t this exact bowl of goodies that day, just an idea of what I tend to get. This was actually my dinner last night.
Whole Foods #BowlOfStuff. This is definitely NOT MY NORMAL! It was after that huge snow storm we had around Christmas that left me stranded in Toronto. Once we actually got the car running, we made a dash to Whole Foods for some much needed (was eating my arm off at this point..) fuel!
Do you have a typical breakfast routine?
My day always starts off with eating. GET OATMEAL IN ME NOW! I’m hungry what can I say? What I’m eating (okay so they’re not that different…it’s still oatmeal…) and what occurs after my breakfast depends on whether I’m lifting that morning or not.
Training Day. Proats + off to the gym for 7:30am
Rest Day. Zoats with berries + prep for work + nap + work.
Love my 2-a-week rest day naps! 😉
So tell me….
What’s your favourite sweet breakfast? Savory?
Weirdest thing you have eaten for breakfast?
Thanks again to Arman for the Link-up!
