First day of the Breakfast Challenge = complete! I have to admit, I got a little caught up in all my papers so I forgot to photograph one of my meals (oops!) – but for the record, it was very breakfast-y: toast with PB, some berries, a banana and some dried pineapple – YUM! I’m sort of on carb overload…can you tell? 😉
I didn’t forget to take a picture of dinner though I started out with a bowl of cereal: one serving of TJ’s High Fiber and Nature’s Path Puffs, with a Weetabix biscuit crumbled over the top. Served again with unsweetened CHOCOLATE almond milk, which, by the way, you must try! It goes really well with cereal, especially if you heat it all up in the microwave for about 30 seconds! Delicious!!
A close-up of all the goodies:
After the cereal I was pretty much done with any sort of carb for the day, so I had two “poached” (aka microwaved) egg whites mixed with some reduced fat Mexican cheese and topped with Tostitos salsa!
I also had a cup of Coffee Cocoa earlier in the day, again while I was busy writing my paper. Many of you know what that looks like by now
So what’s the verdict on day one? Well, I certainly wasn’t as creative as Carmen in terms of finding “alternative” breakfasts (beans on toast, who knew?!), so I’m going to have to work on that, because otherwise all the sugar/carbs are going to wear on me before the five days are over. What better way to do research than by asking you!
Do you have any interesting breakfast ideas that involve non-traditional breakfast foods?
I want to make this challenge as interesting as possible, so any and all ideas are welcome – within a college student’s grocery budget, of course!!
