Healthy, Easy Breakfast Idea
I don’t know about you, but breakfast is definitely my favorite meal of the day. I love to cook breakfast for myself on the weekends or even go out to a great brunch spot with my friends or family. I think the best part about breakfast is the fact that you can cook a delicious, satisfying meal without putting in a ton of effort. Yes, I’m a huge fan of eggs cooked every and any way. The best part is how easy they are to make.
Although I absolutely love mornings, I’m not much of a morning person. I like the idea of having the whole day ahead, but can’t seem to get out of bed early on the weekends. No matter what time I decide to roll out of bed, I do always take some time to treat myself to a good breakfast even if it’s almost noon. Don’t judge…
I always start my mornings off at home with a cup of English Breakfast or Earl Grey tea. And a cup of tea pairs perfectly with this breakfast bowl of goodness. I’ve included the specific brands I use below, but you can of course use whatever you like!
- Trader Joe’s Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats
- Trader Joe’s Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- Trader Joe’s Creamy Almond Butter
Start off by bringing 3/4 cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add 1/4 cup of steel cut oats to your boiling water. Reduce heat, cover, and cook for 5-7 minutes. Cut up one banana and a couple of strawberries. You can use whatever fruit you like, but I personally love the strawberry and banana combo. Add the fruit, cooked oats, and about 3-4 tbsp. of vanilla greek yogurt into a bowl. Another option is to use plain greek yogurt and throw in some honey for added sweetness. Lastly, add around 2 tbsp. of almond butter to your bowl and finish off by sprinkling some cinnamon sugar. Mhmm….
