When You’re Not Eating Bagels for Breakfast

January 23rd, 2012 | Posted by Alison Spath in Breakfast

It was another egg and everything bagel kind of weekend here.

(That means it was a good weekend.)

But now it’s Monday, and we’re moving on to better and bluer breakfasts.

These little wild blueberries from Woodstock Farms are my current favorite small blue thing.

I pop about a half cup of them into a dish and let them thaw in the fridge over night.

Or, if you forgot about them last night like I did, an hour on the counter at room temperature works too.

For some reason, I am really digging these mini bluebs way more than big ones right now. All I can tell you is that they are simply the perfect, perfect size for decorating a bowl of oats and chia seeds soaked overnight in a half cup vanilla yogurt and a half cup or so of almond milk.

Hey! Chia seeds are my favorite small black thing!

They are even better after an early morning date with my new friend Summer Sanders and her prenatal workout!

A note to my pregnant friends out there, (present and future!) I really like this DVD. For a workout in my basement when I not feeling like hauling myself to the gym or out in the cold? It’s a decent workout!

(The Prenatal Vinyasa Flow at yogadownload is my other favorite at home workout right now.)

But back to that blue breakfast. A breakfast for everyone, whether you’re gestating or not.

Oats topped with blueberries, half a banana and ground flax seeds with a small drizzle of almond butter and a half cup of coffee today.

All Together Now

Not a calorie light breakfast by any means for those with weight loss on the brain right now, but it’s a breakfast that will hold you over! And if super foods are what you want? Super foods are what we’ve got.

Bagels are super too of course. Just a different kind of super.

(And flax seeds are my favorite small brown thing. I’ll stop now.)

    It does look super satisfying! I’m a fan of breakfasts like that—that help me not think about food for a few hours (at least not think about food due to hunger)!
    Chia seeds are my fave little black things too. Definitely.
