Dessert for Breakfast

Sunday, September 29, 2019

I'm stuck at the same weight as last week. I'm not at all concerned and am actually a little surprised I didn't gain because I was definitely on and off the wagon this past week. I'm glad the 5% challenge is starting up again soon. I'm looking forward to that Firecracker accountability!

For some reason, I thought it would be good to share my favorite breakfast recipes. I'm a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast and have been eating pretty much the same thing for years and years. I might have an omelet or something special on the weekend, but weekdays I have two go-to recipes.

1. Banana Baked Oatmeal recipes.sparkpeo

You can vary this a million ways by adding dried fruit or nuts, or sprinkling sesame or chia seeds on top. A dollop of Greek yogurt on top is also nice. It's also a good way to use up those over-ripe bananas sitting around on your kitchen counter. It calls for Basis Muesli Mix which is just a mix of rolled oats and other rolled grains. You could just use rolled oats, but I like the mix for the nuttier flavor.

2. My other favorite is Maple Vanilla Chia Seed pudding. This can also be varied in many ways, but my basic recipe has just four ingredients: 2 cups of vanilla-flavored soy milk, 2 cups of plain Greek yoghurt, 6 tablespoons of chia seeds, 4 tablespoons of maple syrup. Whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl, leave sit for about 30 minutes, then divide into 5 portions and refrigerate overnight. I add seasonal fruit and a sprinkling of that muesli mix I talked about before. By the way, I think my Firecracker buddy Micaroo was the one who first suggested this recipe, but it's gone through so many revisions and adaptations to German ingredients, I don't know if it bears much resemblance to hers anymore.

Do you eat dessert for breakfast?

    I am a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast too. I eat an apple with peanut butter or mini omelets that I make ahead of time.

    They both sound pretty good to me. I too am a creature of habit when it comes to my breakfasts - savory, not at all sweet. I am thinking I might try your recipes as an afternoon treat though!

    Yes, I'm a big fan of smoothies. Secure protein powder: in choc w/ banana & PB or vanilla w/ kale or spinach & berries. Mix w/ almond, coconut, soy milk or water. Good before bed, sweet dreams!🐨

    emoticon I will try the chia recipe as I have wanted one that someone I know says is good. My husband prefers meat and eggs so I have come up with a muffin tin egg bake with veggies (sautéed mushrooms and onions always), I have added broccoli, asparagus, artichoke and spinach, 1/2 of turkey brown and serve sausage per muffin, 1/2 egg per muffin and top it off with egg whites until full and parmesan cheese. Each muffin runs about 150- 175 calories depending on ingredients but it makes a fast husband approved breakfast. I top with salsa and if I am hungry I will add low carb/low calorie bread or tortilla wrap.

    I too have been more than off track on this in-between and took today to prep meals for the week (including the above recipe) to be on track for the start of the challenge emoticon emoticon emoticon
