Breakfast Variety

It's funny. For months, I ate the same breakfast almost every day: steel cut oatmeal. I loved my oatmeal and couldn't imagine starting the day without it. Then there was a stretch when I taught a very early morning class and had trouble fitting in breakfast. But I managed to get up early enough to make my oatmeal on most days. On days I didn't have time for oatmeal I ate a banana and a bar. However, after many months of eating the same breakfast, I got tired of it and switched to whole grain bread with avocado, tomato and basil. Sooo good! :o)

Recently I have found that I want to eat a bigger variety of breakfast foods and "more traditional" breakfast foods: eggs, waffles, potatoes, pancakes. This was kind of surprising to me as I never really wanted to eat these foods, except when we went out for breakfast. Well, we aren't really going out to eat breakfast anymore, so maybe that's why I'm starting to miss these foods.... So today I made whole wheat blueberry pancakes with cottage cheese, bananas, strawberries, blueberries & plums on the side. They were just what I wanted - satisfying yet healthy. Hubby loves his syrup, so he added quite a bit of syrup to his pancakes and was very happy.... :o)

Questions: Do you eat the same breakfast every day or do you mix it up? What is your favorite breakfast food (right now)?

Be well,
