Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day: its my favourite. Other meals I can take or leave – I’m happy to snack throughout the day on bits and pieces. A good, healthy and satisfying breakfast however is at the top of the list of priorities in my day. A few weeks back we were up in LA – I was very excited to go to a bakery café for breakfast. The Vienna Café. It has become a fast favourite of mine. The eggs benedict are to die for. Complimentary red velvet cupcakes and a basket of hot, freshly baked bread and rolls.. yes please!
I was reading Real Simple magazine – an article on healthy snacks. I’ll be the first to admit that I indulge in way too many snacks with preservatives. 100 calorie snack packs, otter pops, candy. All the good but bad stuff. So, I made it my goal to eat healthier, more sustaining snacks. Today I had Fage greek yoghurt with a dollop of honey and plain oats. What an amazing breakfast. So healthy and extremely filling - very delicious. Usually I will eat yoghurt and cheerios for breakfast. Or toast with jam and a piece of fruit with yoghurt. I’m totally sold on Fage greek yoghurt. Its wonderfully creamy. My friend Anna has talked about the greek yoghurt in Greece. Anna is in Greece right now. She says there is nothing like the yoghurt there. Mmm. I’d love to try it someday. My other snack for the day is a chopped up apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter to go with it. For lunch I’m planning on a boiled egg and salad. Its my preservative-free eating day. I’m wondering if I will feel fuller on “real” food? Usually I eat a mix of quick foods and natural foods. I love to shop at organic stores and Trader Joes/Henry’s/Whole Foods. Unfortunately the convenience factor of a quick packet of chips gets in the way of my healthy eating.
What is your favourite meal of the day?
