I double dog dare *you* to eat healthy breakfasts with us

I’ve been on Noom since January, and I’ve lost 56 pounds. Yup, it’s pretty great. I’ve hit a plateau, though, and my Noom coach recommended changing up my breakfasts. I got buy-in from Snuggles, who is a breakfast evangelist, to go with a Family Plan on this one. This week, we are trying five new, healthy breakfast dishes together.

Sounds good, right? OK, yeah… but this means getting up early five days in a row to eat weird stuff. Cocoa coconut ground Chia seeds, for instance. We are Adulting breakfasts hard, and that calls for Adult methods.

I’m inviting *you* to eat healthy breakfasts with us because I’m pretty sure that this adventure is going to require some peer pressure to self-actualize.

Here are five healthy breakfast quests. Each recipe makes two servings. Try one or two with us this week, and leave your comments with the blog post.

I look forward to hearing your tales of 5 AM healthy breakfast quests! I would love to be in this with you!

  1. I generally don’t eat breakfast, but these recipes sound good. They also sound like foods that can be eaten at any time of day. I can’t promise I’ll be joining you for breakfast (I’m a natural night owl, and some days I’m just getting to sleep when you’re rising.), but I can say for sure that I’ll give a couple of these recipes a try.

  2. Oh! And I almost forgot – low fat Greek yogurt and fruit ( peaches are a favorite) smoothies with about a 1/8 cup of 1% milk blended in are also super for breakfast? An immersion blender makes it a snap to make!

  3. Oh, I do a version of the overnight oats. A bottle of kefir is 4 cups. So I do 4 Tupperware dishes with 1/2 cup oats, quarter cup nuts and a cup of frozen fruit each. – blueberries or raspberries. Then the night before, I add a cup of kefir. Do each night until gone.

  4. Day One!: Our first servings of overnight oats. I followed the recipe in the post and used the add-ons: cinnamon, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and chopped almonds. We were both delighted by how tasty it was, I was delighted by how easy it was to make the night ahead. I see more overnight oats in our future.

  5. This morning it was Southwest Burritos from the recipe in the post. I was pretty darned sure they would be a sucky disaster. I mean, we both like southwest burritos, but in my mind, they are restaurant food. THEY WERE GREAT. I even put jalapeno on mine after declaring for the last 19 years of our marriage that I don’t like jalapenos. Thinking back now, is it possible that I just never tried them on their own?? What’s more – they “sealed” just like the author said they would!
