The kind people at Barefoot Running sent me a copy of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Barefoot Running. Sounds like a scintillating read, right? I thought so.
Is there anything better than sneaking in some time on the couch with a good book?
Yes: Breakfast is better.
It might be impossible for you to convince me that I should love another meal more than I love breakfast. I dig it with every taste bud I've got. And while you might argue that one falls in love with breakfast simply because one wakes up hungry, I beg to differ. For me, it's not about that. Rather, it's about the meal itself. It can be sweet or savory, baked oatmeal or boxed cereal, eggs...toast...you name it. I love it. (Unless, of course, you name bacon. It's the only breakfast item I will not touch. I think it stinks, and it's too salty. But I digress...)
Aside from being quite tasty (in my opinion), breakfast is truly the most important meal of your day. After a night of burning calories (yes, we burn calories while we sleep)—it simply makes sense that we need to refuel when morning comes. A car doesn't go without gas, right? You should expect the same from your body. It can't function properly without food. Healthy food, to be more specific. So it goes without saying (but you know me, I say it anyway) that your day should always start with something healthy and nutritious. Bonus points if it's delicious! But it's not just about our ability to function.
Noodle this quote from WebMD:
Lee's Blueberry Chia sauce. I mean, I literally can't explain how good it was. Would it help you to know that I made it two days in a row? Or that I'm currently salivating over the picture above? Oh, man. I might make this today's breakfast, too.
But before I do that, I need to clarify one thing: I baked all of the above in a cereal bowl. Portion control? Check.
Question: What is your breakfast of champions?
