What I eat.....Breakfast

Now that I have cleaned up my diet, this has pretty much become my new breakfast, and I must say, it's actually pretty darn good! 

I thought breaking it up by meals week by week would be the easiest way to break it down.  As most of you know, breakfast is one of the most important meals, and one you should NEVER skip. 

Avocado Toast
This is probably my favorite of them all.  I love, love avocado toast, and it's super easy!  All I do is mash the avocado with a fork, spread it onto my toast, and then sprinkle a little salt and pepper.  If you like a little kick like I do, then you can add some red pepper flakes as well. 

This one is pretty new around here, and it is quickly becoming Todd's favorite.  Plus, it's so nice to have this one prepped ahead of time. 

1 cupUnsweetened almond milk (or low fat milk of choice)
1/2 cupPlain low fat Greek yogurt (or mashed banana, or applesauce)
1/4 cupPeanut flour (aka PB2) 1
1/4 tspSalt (or to taste)
2 tbsBaking stevia or 1/4 cup sweetener that measures like sugar 2
1 cupOld fashioned oats
1/4 cupProtein powder (or additional oats)
In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients together. Divide between 2 small bowls, mugs, or mason jars. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least an hour (or more) so the oats soften and absorb the liquid). Top with peanut butter and/or chocolate chips if desired! Enjoy cold, or microwave for 30-60 seconds to enjoy warm!

You can get the PB2 here, and this protein powder here

Peanut butter toast with a side of strawberries 
I guess I can say I probably make this the most for breakfast.  I always have all these ingredients on hand, and both of the kids love peanut butter toast and strawberries.  The Jif Whips is so good, plus it has less calories than regular peanut butter. 

This is what I grab on the days I am running late and need to eat my breakfast in the car.  I am kind of obsessed with this flavor and the bananas foster

So, as you can see, I keep it pretty simple (maybe even boring) around here for breakfast, but that's what works for me :) 

I would love to hear what you guys eat for breakfast!
