I’m pretty sure the only thing that could shake me out of a self-imposed blogging break is a post about breakfast.
Well played Arman, well played.
Breakfast is kinda my shit.
♫ “Cause it’s the real shit, shit to make em feel shit. Lump em in the club shit.” ♫
Apparently it’s also the kind of meal to make me bust into Mobb Deep’s Quiet Storm or Icona Pop’s, I Love It. Yep, been there, done that, and obviously, I have no loyalties where music is concerned. Breakfast on the other hand, is a different and delicious story.
I love breakfast. It’s the bomb diggety of my meals, the champagne to my orange juice, if you will, which is almost as important as the food. I wouldn’t want to be parched now; dehydration is no way to go, although I do reserve my mimosa consumption for weekends, the days when I don’t crunch numbers for a living. See how considerate I am.
Since I’m feeling so kind (I need to take advantage of these moments), I’m going to bypass a whole host of words and jump right into Arman’s Spill It Sunday Survey – The Breakfast Edition. … and away we go.
What is your classic go to breakfast choice?
My go to breakfast, especially when I’m on the move, is a fruit filled smoothie. If there’s greens on hand, I’ll toss those in too. You know what they say. Blend ’em if ya got ’em.
Favorite sweet style breakfast?
My favorite sweet breakfast would have to be any of my homemade granola. I use maple syrup as the sweetener, which I offset it with a scoop of plain Greek yogurt and usually some fresh fruit. In the words of a sly leprechaun, it’s “magically delicious,” without all the faux ingredients.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Granola, also known as The Elvis. I promise to share this recipe as soon as my nimble little phalanges type it up. Hopefully in the very near future.
Favorite savory style breakfast?
Eggs are my absolute favorite, hands down, breakfast, although I do like to keep my hands up long enough to eat them. They also make me channel Dr. Seuss.
I would eat them in a box. I would eat them with a fox. I would eat them in a house. I would eat them with a mouse. I would eat them here or there. I would eat them anywhere.
Share a breakfast recipe you are a fan of – It can be your own or another bloggers!
I’m hooked on Kirsten’s Breakfast Salad with sautéed shallots, cabbage, eggs and potatoes. I figure if someone can get me to enjoy a vegetable I don’t even like (I’m talking to you, Mr. Cabbage Head), that’s a win in my book. Seriously this dish is freaking AH-MA-ZING.
Another breakfast I adore in a subtle and sweet way is Arman’s Sweet Potato and Cheddar Pancakes, which also come with a dose of cauliflower and spinach, a savory veggie filled pancake if I ever did see one.
And last but certainly not least, we can’t forget Heather’s Zucchini filled gems. I literally defrosted shredded zucchini earlier this week, with these babies in mind. I’m thinking they’ll make a perfect post work dinner.
Strangest breakfast you’ve ever eaten?
A Beet Juice Mimosa, by my account and yours.
Do you have a typical breakfast routine?
Open Mouth – Insert Food. 🙂
Since no Spill It post would be complete without a selfie, I’ll share my morning splendor, bed head and all.
What’s your take on breakfast? What kind of breakfast do you eat the most? Just for kicks, what’s one breakfast you can’t stand? Do not say eggs. Alright fine, say whatever you want. I did ask, didn’t I?
