As a busy, working mom, I'm constantly asked, "How do you do it?". Ok, of course that's a lie, no one cares. BUT, at the baby shower I attended recently, I did get asked how I fit in exercise in the mornings before work. I explained that my main secret was putting absolutely no effort in regarding the looks department, and I also explained what I eat for breakfast. I thought it might make an interesting post.
I tend to get into breakfast routines, and stick with the same thing for awhile. I used to be all about the sweet breakfasts, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, etc. But the past two months, I've only been able to do salty.
First, there were these crackers. Huge time saver. Throw a box in my work bag, put them on the table when I arrive, eat while answering email. No preparation necessary, and they even sell them in bulk at Costco.
Then, I started to think I needed some more protein, not just carbs. I started adding some hard boiled eggs. I like to dip them in salt. Or, sometimes hot sauce.
Lately, instead of my morning coffee, I've been enjoying this green tea.

The best part is, these breakfast choices can double as evening snacks. They can even be eaten in bed, if, by 7pm, I'm too exhausted to be vertical. Which is frequently the case.

The only problem is, all these breakfasts are preventing my pants from buttoning lately.
Or....maybe the reason my pants won't close is also the reason I'm craving weird - ass breakfasts?
