Breakfast Ideas – From Readers!

15 Jul

And so we meet again, my friends. πŸ™‚

Ok, I was absolutely floored by how many of you commented on my post about breakfast a while back. Y’all are eating some tasty-sounding things for bfast, and I just couldn’t let the comments disappear into cyberspace.

So I’ve compiled them into a wonderful list, to not only give readers new ideas for bfast, but to also showcase the fabulous followers of Three Months.

Let’s begin:

  • Heather @ Where’s the Beach: oatmeal with protein powder, banana, strawberries and peanut butter
  • Katie @ Health for the Whole Self: plain Greek yogurt mixed with unsweetened applesauce
  • Katie @ Healthy Heddleston: Better β€˜n’ Peanut and homemade grape jam on Food for Life’s GF English Muffins, side of chocolate milk
  • Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat: omelette and a choco-banana protein shake
  • Erin @ Ed & Ashley: smoothies w/ fruit, almond milk and almond butter
  • Kara @ MyWellnest: pretzels and raspberries (she said she needs to go grocery shopping!…giver her a break!) πŸ™‚
  • Fit Chick in the City: overnight oats soaked in chocolate almond milk, then added peanut butter and 1/2 a frozen banana
  • Kelly @ Healthy Living with Kelly: tried something new – Oatheads instant oatmeal
  • Eunice @ Food 4 Fitness: protein shake and an English muffin
  • Lisa @ I’m an Okie: waffles and cheerios – staying in a hotel for a work conference
  • Lisa @ Early Morning Run: greek yogurt or oatmeal
  • Kathryn @ Foodies Not Fatties: high fiber instant oatmeal w/ low-fat cottage cheese and golden raisins

So there you have it! I hope you were inspired to try something new for breakfast, because after all, it is the most important meal of the day!

A Very Filling Breakfast.

12 Jul

So glad to hear you all enjoyed your weekend! If you’re playing catch-up from the weekend:

I must share with you a new treat I found at Trader Joe’s yesterday: Protein Power Banana Chocolate Chunk Muffins. Yes, yes, yes.

(Side note: it may seem like I’m rather obsessed with protein. I assure you, it’s just a coincidence!)

Anyway, these muffins are amazing. They are very dense and only about half the height of a regular muffin. Each muffin packs 2g of fiber and 7g protein. And for only $1.99 for 6 – it’s a steal!

While in bed last night, trying to fall asleep (that’s a whole other topic for a another post!) I was thinking of ways to incorporate these little treasures in my breakfast. Alas, I had an idea!

What’s that I see? Oatmeal? And a cut-up muffin on top? Oh, yes. And it was absolutely delicious! So delicious and filling that I didn’t even need nut butter. Crazy, I know.

Ok, friends. I have a lot of work to do. I need to prep for my phone interview tomorrow (whee!), head to the gym for Body Pump, scour the internet for new job postings and just enjoy this beautiful Monday. Well, I should say stormy Monday…it looks like it might rain!

Tell me, what did you have for breakfast? Any new concoctions to share?!

Oatmeal Completes Me.

28 Jun

Good morning!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! What did you do?!

If you’re catching up from the weekend, check out these posts:Β  my review of Body Step and find out the best time to grocery shop.


My morning has been pretty low-key thus far. It took me a few snooze buttons to finally get out of bed – but luckily, I had my husband waiting for me in the kitchen with a nice cup of joe. That was all the motivation I needed, folks.

So as you know, I’m unemployed. Pretty cool, huh?! πŸ˜‰ I’ve mentioned this before, but I get up every morning with my husband to enjoy coffee with him. I think it’s important to stick to a routine, even though I have no specific commitments throughout the day. There is no reason to sleep the day away – things need to get done. Like find a job, work out and do laundry (which by the way, a load is already in the dryer!).

But, friends, I digress. Let me get to the point of this post. Oatmeal completes me. Nothing keeps me fuller longer than a great bowl of oats.

Oatmeal and Almond Buttah

Into the mix:

-half a banana mashed

-1/4 cup of old-fashioned oats

-1/2 cup water

-cinnamon

-tablespoon of almond butter (my fave)


It’s absolutely delicious and completely satisfying. I know a lot of bloggers find it hard to have hot oats in the summer months. Me? I find them too delicious to give up for summer!

What’s your favorite satisfying breakfast?
