“Instead of telling the world what you’re eating for breakfast, you can use social networking to do something that’s meaningful.”

Edward Norton. Sorry dude.

Nutrition is hard y’all. Among my weaknesses are cookies, cheese, french baguettes, beer and bourbon (and gin and wine). And I think that I love pizza only slightly less than I love my own flesh and blood, Darwin.

Lighten up, Darwin — I’m just kidding!

But one of the things I’ve got going for me is that I like to eat a healthy breakfast just about every day. Er, minus the Himalayan-sized amount of french toast I was served at brunch this weekend.

Really, this was an obscene anomaly.

Normally I have 4 rotating breakfast options and I wake up actually looking forward to making and eating them. Like many folks I was a breakfast refuser for so long, but since getting into the habit a few years back I find it’s not only the full belly that I enjoy, but also the ritual of just sitting down in the morning at the table and spacing out a bit before the day starts.

These corn tortillas by La Tortilla Factory are worth waking up for. Add a scrambled egg, avocado, salsa, and a generous shake of Burn Baby Burn hot sauce (aka the best hot sauce ever), fold it up and munch away.

I’m koo-koo crazy for dates lately, and I’m happy to have found this simple and flexible recipe from Food Doodles. This is a great basic shake with 3 ingredients — dates, almond milk, and banana — making it easy and fun to add creative extras like ground flax, chia seeds, greens, almond or vanilla extract…

Kefir, cereal, and fruits

Probiotics! I make my own kefir, which I find has a more pleasing texture than the store-bought stuff.

On long run days I make a loaded oatmeal with peanut butter, chia and flax seeds, banana, and currants.

Almost always an avocado and hummus, and sometimes a fried or boiled egg or leftovers (like the greens above).

Do you have a breakfast repertoire or do you wing it?

  1. You can’t even imagine how much I love french toast. Mmmmm.

    I’ve been eating the same breakfast every day for a YEAR. Green smoothie. Every week day. Weekends are for long runs, waffles and brunch 🙂
