A real breakfast… for once

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I love breakfast foods. Why is it that I never seem to make time to make a good one each morning? It seems like the past 2 weeks I’ve been working early shifts and grabbing a quick bowl of boring cereal or a not so healthy treat at Starbucks. Today is a new day.

I wonder if it has to do with my latest motivation; the cleaning and organizing last night and now a good old fashioned breakfast. I even took the time to get out my favorite plate and placemat for a good photo op and for something special for me. ME I think being the key word here. I’m taking more time these days to focus on me which I don’t always do…

Anyways, my breakfast started with a nice big pot of Fresh Market Spring Blend coffee made in the French press…..


followed by 2 eggs over easy and a side of multi-grain toast…


Do you like the placemat and plate??!! Both recent purchases of Pier 1 Imports.  I love to shop there for unique bowls and mugs and placemats ,etc.

I already have a sandwich made for lunch to bring to work to have with a side of fruit and yogurt. Then dinner will be a nice bowl of tomato soup tonight I think. Planning a head makes a huge difference for me. Since I do work random retail hours it usually sometimes helps cut back in the urge to eat crap that is easy accessible at the mall.


Holy Greek Yummo!

This morning was one of THOSE mornings, ya’ll know what I mean! I was dragging ass as I was getting ready and of course running a bit late. Plus the past few mornings I’ve had tummy aches which pushed me further behind. Needless to say I didn’t have time (or really) want breakfast before I left the house. Once I got to the mall, I needed some coffee and was feeling better so I headed to Starbucks. I figured I’d grab a whole grain bagel or something like that to have with my iced coffee (I was jonsing for ice coffee today!)

As I got into line and grabbed a bottle of water out of the cooler case I noticed their parfaits. I thought to myself, that sounds good today. I started to look through, trying to find the best one and what do I come across but a Greek Yogurt Parfait!


Look at those ingredients! mmmm it was awesome!  I need to find a recipe now for coconut-almond macaroon granola! Obvious the price is  tad much so I wouldn’t buy this every day but what a treat! It made my morning! I was a lucky winner that morning at Starbucks too; I NEVER win anything! Guess what it was?? a plastic spoon for my yogurt! yay! hahah the guy behind the counter was funny Nyah-Nyah

Needless to say that was one of the perfect breakfasts (from Starbucks) this morning. Greek Yogurt Parfait and an iced coffee = yummo!
