My relationship with breakfast has not always been the best. I spent most of my 20’s never eating breakfast – opting for coffee and running out the door to work. But now that I’m in my 30’s, I see how important breakfast is. When I take the time eat a good meal in the morning, I have better energy and eat well throughout the day. It truly is the most important meal of the day.
Still, I’m always pressed for time and it can be very tempting to grab a cup of coffee and go. I’ve had to work hard to fit in my breakfast habit.
A few tips:
Prep the Night Before
Take it To-Go
Wake Up Earlier
Try new breakfast options and plan on things that will keep you interested in breakfast. Cereal is fantastic, but think outside the cereal bowl.
One idea is to use my favorite Post cereals, Shredded Wheat Original, Great Grains – Cranberry Almond Crunch and Honey Bunches of Oats – Honey Roasted, as a topping in a smoothie bowl.
Using my favorite cereal, Honey Bunches of Oats – Honey Roasted, as a topping on a delicious smoothie bowl makes my breakfast fun. It also offers the option to take it to go and change up the toppings.
For this smoothie bowl, I used a Vanilla Smoothie Base (but you could use any!), fresh strawberries, chia/flax mix, dried cranberries, toasted coconut and Honey Bunches of Oats, Honey Roasted.
I like to build mine by placing the toppings in their own “spot” on top. You can mix or enjoy a different taste with every spoonful. The cereal gives it a great crunch and taste.
Post Cereals make kick-starting your day with a nutritious breakfast easy – whether in a smoothie bowl – or however you choose to incorporate them. Post Cereals contain fiber that prepares your body for the day and keeps you full until lunch. And they have whole grains that are packed with nutrients, including protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants. With these cereals, you’ll be starting your day and the new year with Spoonfuls of Goodness. You can change out the toppings, switch the Post Cereals (above I used Post Shredded Wheat – Original) to create a smoothie bowl that is perfect for the entire family. No one can say that they don’t like breakfast when you allow everyone to add their own toppings!
