Gardener ‘Shape Up,’ Breakout Breakfasts

It’s all about breakfast on this triple-shot Friday!  The weekend is upon us and if you are in need of some new breakfast ideas, try one of these three fabulous starters.

Since starting ‘Gardener ‘Shape Up’, Being Mindful of Health,‘ breakfast has played a leading role in my nutrition intake.  I have always eaten a little something in the a.m., but many times as life gets busy this meal gets shoved down the priority list.  An Almondina cookie or half of a pear or piece of Canadian bacon is what I might grab before leaving the house in the morning. Great start for the day?  I think not!

Knowing full well breakfast is the meal that gets your brain going…and knowing I need as much brain and memory power as I can muster each day, I’ve changed my habits.  These Breakout Breakfasts (BB) can be made in about 10 minutes, are well-balanced in terms of nutrition and are approximately 300-400 calories if kept to reasonable portions.

BB #1   – Plain greek yogurt , chopped almonds, blueberries, a bit of honey


BB #2  – poached egg, whole wheat english muffin or toast, clementines or orange

Do you need to breakout of old habits and get off to a better start?  If so,  which one would you be most likely to try?  BB1, BB2 or BB3?

By the way, I’m participating in triple-shot Friday with PRIORHOUSE Blog.  If you like things in 3s, you’ll like triple-shot Fridays!
