Why do some people opt out of breakfast?? This is a genuine question. I am confused!!
Breakfast has always been my favorite meal of the day. When I was in middle school, my Spanish teacher told our class this saying:
“Desayuna como rey, come como príncipe, y cena como mendigo.”
…which translates into, “Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a beggar.” Pretty sure this doesn’t accurately describe my eating habits, but it’s still stuck with me since then.
This morning I ventured out of my oatmeal comfort zone and tried this recipe for hole-in-the-middle by mynameisyeh. I tried to get creative and holiday-spirity by using a shamrock cutout (happy st. patty’s to you all), but that turned out shamefully ugly. Then I tried a heart cutout, which also failed. Finally, I settled on a circle and decided not to flip the toast. Cutesy egg thing resulted.
Also, why have I never toasted bread on the stovetop before?? Skillet + slice of bread + drizzle of canola oil = crispy carb perfection. Bon apetite.
P.S. The smoothie pictured is my go-to recipe! Toss a handful of frozen berries, half a banana, 1/2 cup almond milk, and a splash of vanilla into the blender for a healthy start to your day.
