Breakfast Update

One of my big goals for 2017 was to start eating breakfast more consistently (read: at all). A latte doesn't count. I wanted to do a check-in post with my progress, because that helps hold me accountable. If you follow me on instagram, you'll also notice, somewhat annoyingly, that I've been posting a lot of my breakfast pictures there.
I have been toggling between two breakfasts for the most part, depending on how much time I have, whether I'm running or not, and what I'm in the mood for. Once or twice a week I spend about an hour peeling and chopping veggies to roast. My favorite breakfast is a strip of bacon, already roasted veggies (beets, sweet potato, carrots, and brussel sprouts) thrown into the pan of bacon grease (mmmmm) to warm up, some red onion, and two delicious fried eggs to top it off. After a couple of weeks of considerable stomach pain I realized I was missing some healthy fat and eating a LOT of roasted veggies. I started adding half of an avocado to the mix and my stomach and taste buds have been very happy.

My other favorite breakfast is greek yogurt (I've even found a delicious coconut yogurt version!!) with granola, and whatever pretty fruit I have on hand. Yum.  Somehow making it in to a breakfast mandala makes me even happier to be eating its beauty.

Who's got some more breakfast ideas for me? I'd love anything I can make in advance!

I've been trying to be better about eating breakfast as well - usually I'm not too hungry when I get up, then it's almost 11 and might as well wait until get the picture.

I've been scrambling eggs and having fruit on the side. I also made the Superhero muffins from Run Fast Eat Slow - I don't love them like most people seem to, but they're good for breakfast on the go.
