I am not a breakfast eater.
Just because I am awake does not mean my stomach is awake.
Unfortunately (& as our mothers have relentlessly explained to us):
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Nope, sorry. Even though I don’t want to, even though my stomach argues, I need to eat breakfast. If I don’t, I turn into a morning grouch.
With the demise of my blender, I’ve had no ‘easy escape’ smoothies to drink mindlessly.
So I made a move. I bought some new ingredients for a breakfast recipe I had been ogling for a while. Overnight oats has shifted me. I make it the night before. I sling whatever I crave on it. Pictured above is overnight oats layered with banana “soft serve”, cacao nibs, & warm apples with cinnamon + nutmeg. Yum yum.
& for the first time in a LONG time (perhaps forever) I go to sleep looking forward to eating breakfast!
That’s crazy talk.

THIS LOOKS AMAZING
I’ll make some for you sometime!
I’m always so grateful for a reminder to check out your site again – the design is absolutely beautiful, and this post is no exception! Thank you for the inspiration!
Thank you, Gwen!
My stomach needs at least an hour to wake up after I am.
But strangely, some foods, such as a fruit smoothie that is mostly berries, poses no problem, no matter the time!
and haf an hour later, i can eat whatever. Magic smoothies!
Get a new blender asap, and we can share recipes!
I look forward to getting a new blender! I just have to decide what sort…
when you do something, you go BIG! From smoothies to THIS? admirable….
Go big or go home!
Okay okay, it’s not in a fancy goblet every day – just on Sundays when I have time to do it up right (& the sun is up when I’m eating breakfast).
OOoh, overnight oats. I have never been able to get it together enough to consistently make these for myself…
Oh, you totally should! I’m addicted. I like how I can add different things depending on my mood.
Another person who makes banana soft serve! One of my students introduced me and I cannot get enough. ‘Cept that my blender is so loud I have to stretch the chord into the back yard and wrap the whole thing in a towel. Seriously.
HOLY MOLY! I think I just drooled a bit…alright alright, a lot.
