“Breakfast is a big deal.”
“Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”
“You have to eat breakfast if you want to lose weight.”
Blah, blah, blah. You’ve heard it, I’ve heard it, everyone’s heard it. You have to eat breakfast. I mean, I get it. It is important and healthy and everything but when I wake up early (because of school, you’ve probably heard the concept) I feel sick. I feel tired and I really, really, really don’t want to eat anything. Therefore for a long time, I didn’t. I didn’t eat my breakfast, I didn’t even try to make it. I just gave up on it and told myself I don’t need some breakfast to be healthy.
But the truth is, I need it. You need it. Everyone needs to have breakfast, even if it is just a tiny bite of something. It counts and it will help you to gain more energy for the long day that awaits. And you know what I did? I, the great breakfast hater, swore to myself that I will document a whole school week of my breakfasts and then share it online on my blog. I had a motivation. I had to do it. And… I did!
WHAT I ATE THIS WEEK FOR BREAKFAST:
Since I’m not used to eating breakfast, I decided to start up with something small. Like an apple. So I cut an apple and added a little bit of agave syrup on top. It was really delicious. And of course I had to have my juice (on Monday it was apple juice) and I even made myself a cup of tea (I believe it was strawberry and raspberry tea).
I woke up pretty late on Tuesday and I didn’t have much time to spare. So I went for the easiest and quickest option – a glass of apple juice and a small baguette with peanut butter.
Wednesday was the day of oatmeal. I made myself cranberry oatmeal and again drank a glass of apple juice. Simple, quick, but freaking tasty!
I really love cranberries. So much that I decided the oatmeal wasn’t enough and therefore on Thursday I ate cranberry biscuits. And because there was no apple juice left, I drank a glass of black currant juice. Not that great, but I still like it.
Once again I ate oatmeal. But this time, I added some chia and sesame seeds. It was interesting and really tasty. And I drank the typical glass of juice (black currant) and even made myself a cup of tea.
So there you have it. I did it. I ate my breakfast and it was actually kind of nice. And I have to admit I felt more energetic than usual. And now I dare you to try it. You don’t have to blog about it or put it on the Internet but just try to eat your breakfast. It’s really healthy and who doesn’t want to be healthy? I tell you what. You eat your breakfast, you’ll be healthy and you’ll live for a very long time. You’ll live so long that you will be so old you will shrink. And then someone will carry you around in their pocket and it will be great. Unless they put an used tissue in the same pocket. Because that would probably be less great and more… gross. Well, anyway, what was I saying?
