So I know I told you guys that I would be making a Baby Page so as not to overload you with all my crazy ramblings/thoughts/baby shiz but I couldn’t figure it out. Technically NOT technical at all so from now on baby posts will be mixed with food posts. Hope that’s okay
I don’t want to talk about babies at all though today! I want to talk about breakfast. Yummy yummy breakfast. If haven’t noticed on the blog before (I know it’s kind of hard with the lack of posts…) but I get into suuuuper food routines. I have no problem eating the same meal a couple times a week or month. Example: Peas and Thank You Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna. HOOKED. But I couldn’t imagine eating the same thing everyday for lunch or dinner. Boring much? But breakfast on the other hand is a completely different story.
A few years ago I never used to eat breakfast at all. I used to sleep until noon (or 2 or 3), wake up and have lunch. Or if I did wake up before lunch time I would eat leftovers for breakfast. Spaghetti at 8am? Yes please. I’m not sure when I came to the realization how important that first meal of the day is, but now I can’t imagine not eating as soon as I get up. And not leftover rice with mushroom gravy either
Breakfast is the one meal where I can eat the same thing every single day and not be bored. But it changes weekly.
Of course it started with oatmeal. SO many different variations.
Ashley’s scottish oats with granola and pomegranate seeds
same oats as above but with peanut butter cups (chocolate + oats = amazing)
buckwheat groat oatmeal with granola, raspberry jam, maple peanut butter and almond milk
quinoa flake oatmeal with goji berries, frozen raspberries and blueberries and almond butter
overnight oats – 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup almond milk, 1/3 cup yogurt, 1 tbsp chia seeds, cinnamon and vanilla left to soak in the fridge overnight…..
topped with a pear, raspberry jam and granola in the morning
After my small oatmeal obsession, I moved on to french toast…
Ezekiel french toast with almond butter + almond milk mixture and frozen raspberries
topped with strawberries, greek yogurt and maple syrup
cinnamon spelt waffles with pomegranates and almond butter + almond milk
with greek yogurt and strawberries
waffle sandwich with 2 egg whites, raspberry jam, laughing cow and maple syrup
spinach + hazelnut smoothie, strawberry, peach + pineapple smoothie, spinach + saskatoon berry smoothie
Vega Almondilla + Spinach smoothie
and pizzert babies (which totally double as an awesome afternoon snack ;))
Kat’s pizzert babies with almond butter, granola and coconut
Ashley’s banana cornmeal cakes became a staple for many weeks. Total no brainer. They are so filling and so delicious. I think I only stopped eating them because I couldn’t find buckwheat anywhere!

Just as obsessed I was with those bakes, I looove love Deb’s protein muffin. I’ve probably made it uhhhhhh…a couple 100 times? I make mine with brown rice flour, applesauce, egg whites, blueberries and vanilla bean powder. Deeelicious!
Muff topped with lots of almond butter, 1/2 english muffin with butter + jam and an orange
Topped with LOTS of peanut butter, maple syrup and hemp hearts
Same as above but with lots of blueberries cooked in.
Aaand of course I could not forget eggs. I could eat eggs every single day and probably be a very very happy lady. There are soo many different kinds of ways to eat them! Over easy are my favourite though
Egg rollup with pineapple, cherries, toast with cinnamon + laughing cow
Big omelette fail with broccoli, peppers and spinach, oranges and strawberries.
2 egg scramble with tons of ketchup, quinoa cakes with avocado, hemp hearts + goji berries and raspberries
Runny egg on two pieces of toast, avocado + veggie sausages
More runny eggs on a socca pancake (1/4 cup chickpea flour, 1/4 cup water, salt + pepper +italian seasoning) with avocado, cheese and salsa
I have totally saved the best for last. PANCAKES!! I am so so obsessed with this recipe right now. I add in 2 tsp of bee pollen, use Sun Warrior protein powder and have tried almost every fruit in them
with strawberries, maple syrup and hemp hearts
with blueberries, lots of butter, maple syrup and hemp hearts
with raspberries, butter and maple syrup
So tell me….
What is your favourite breakfast food?
Do you get into major food routines?
Notice how muffins and cereal did not make my list? I love them both but only for snacks, not for breakfast.
Miss you guys tons and tons,
PS. Has anyone seen my ankles?? Yeah….me neither. They’ve been missing for awhile now haha
