Pinspiration: Healthy Breakfast Options
Marie Young

I try to live by the saying “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper”. However, I usually end up doing the exact opposite. My morning breakfast is scarce, my dinner is way too much and let’s not even talk about lunch…if I even have one!

Since I’m going to be starting the Bloggers Like Me Get Fit Challenge January 7th, I’ve been forced to take a good look at my nutrition, or lack thereof, and how it’s been affecting my weight. My head isn’t in the clouds. I know that I won’t be able to lose weight by doing some extreme diet or some weight loss set of shots. I’m completely aware that I won’t be able to lose weight UNLESS I have the proper nutrition and I exercise OFTEN.

This morning, while making breakfast I stood there and stared in the refrigerator for like 5 minutes in complete disgust of what my options were for breakfast. It then hit me that it wasn’t the options to choose from that was my issue, it was my limited cooking skill set. This sent me into an immediate Pinterest spree looking for healthy options for breakfast and this is what I found:

Healthy Morning Muffins

With ingredients like carrots, bananas and raisins I knew this would be a great option for me. Even on those mornings where I am rushing out the door, I can grab one of these with some fruit and it will for sure last me until it’s snack time!

Eggs, Avocado & Salsa Over a English Muffin

This recipe is a shot out for my husband. Why? I won’t TOUCH scrambled eggs with a 10 foot pole. I don’t know why, something about the consistency. My husband on the other hand loves them. This one is as easy as it looks too just stuff all the ingredients into an English muffin and wha-lah!

Breakfast Salad

This one looks so good if I had it sitting in front of me I probably wouldn’t even eat it. It looks so cute, I would put it on the kitchen table as decoration. But for real, I love Arugula salad and as strange as it sounds (as I previously stated I can’t stand scrambled eggs) I can tear up some poached hard or boiled eggs. Yep, I’m a little mental different! LOL.

Shamrock Breakfast Sandwich

Now this one is my absolute favorite! I don’t know about you but sometimes I have to stop myself from eating a burger for breakfast. Something about them is just so insatiable…

This sandwich looks just like a burger that I would demolish too. It’s also roving the whole king thing in the saying “eat like a king for breakfast…” I don’t mind testing out that theory with a breakfast option like this either!

Needless to say I will be trying some much needed new breakfast recipes in preparation for my Bloggers Like Me Get Fit Challenge. Lets not forget to mention I just HAVE to expand my cooking options. The family and I are tired of my signature cream of wheat, bacon and eggs. Yep, I’m steppin my game up!
