I was in the mood to bake something today. I debated on baking something to have for breakfast, but couldn’t decide what I wanted so I decided to bake a desert instead. See what happens when I get motivated to go to the gym which then gives me more energy… I use it to bake! Today I decided to bake peanut butter blossom bars. I didn’t get around to baking peanut butter blossoms at Christmas time so that was on my list of wanting to bake… so I did.
I haven’t baked in a while, since before Christmas actually. I have made granola and homemade LaraBars, or as he calls them “LoriBars”. Richard wanted the granola for his breakfast yogurt and Colby wanted the LoriBars. He had two for breakfast this morning and one after school. I guess I should have made a double batch. I had some of the granola myself for breakfast. It wasn’t what I wanted, but it was easy and loaded with nuts- proteins, so it’s what I had.
I’ve been in a breakfast funk lately. When I lived in FL and was teaching, I made Richard and I smoothies every day for breakfast. It was simple and easy. I would take it with me and drink it in my classroom and that would tie me over until lunch. I haven’t made a smoothie since moving to PA. Plus, I’m not sure a cold smoothie would be on my to have list right now. I go through phases of having yogurt, cereal or sometimes even just a spoonful of peanut butter for breakfast. I know the importance of a good breakfast, I just don’t know what I want to have. Yes, I know I should make eggs or some other hearty protein based breakfast, but I don’t want to. I don’t usually want eggs for breakfast, I prefer them as a dinner not a breakfast, ok I’m weird I admit it.
I have from time to time baked myself breakfast things such as muffins or quick breads. But, again I know this isn’t exactly the best thing for me to have for breakfast. So, I get into this rut of what should I have for breakfast that is good for me and is what I want to eat at that time of the day.
