I wanted to write a post today about eating healthy breakfasts. This is one area of my diet that I really need to work on. I think that if I can get things figured out in the breakfast area I will feel better and lose weight quicker.
The problem is that I have know idea where to start. I am the type of person that wakes up way to early with my kids and feels hungry and nauseous (I think from lack of sleep) at the same time. The only thing that sounds good to me in the morning is Chocolate (muffins, cupcakes, cake, donuts, etc...). So what do I do? I either give into my cravings and eat unhealthy or I just skip breakfast completely. Neither of which is good for me.
I really want to be that person that gets up in the morning and gets a bowl of cereal and a big piece of fruit. I really would like to enjoy a breakfast like that but for some reason I can't stand the thought of healthy food in the morning.
It's kind of funny because when I was growing up my Mom would not buy cereal with sugar in it. I was always so jealous of my friends because they all ate the "good" cereal for breakfast. I do remember that instead of the sugar free cereal I would eat any cupcake, cookie, donut or dessert we had in the house at the time and that would be my breakfast. Either that or cold pizza (which by the way I still love to do).
Maybe it's just something that I got so used to doing as a teenager that I can't get rid of the thoughts of needing sweets in the morning. It is kind of crazy and sometimes I wonder if I am the only person in the world that feels this way about breakfast.
So I know I have this problem that I need to resolve but I'm not really sure how. It's not as easy as just eating it. I need to find some breakfast foods that sound appetizing to me at the same time as being inexpensive, healthy, filling and quick. Every week I go to he grocery store in search of breakfast foods and come home without any. It is just that nothing healthy looks good to me. I would love to have a healthy casserole that I could make the night before and bake in the morning.
Do you have a problem finding appetizing breakfast foods? What do you eat for breakfast?
