Surprisingly amazing breakfast!

I've been looking around for breakfast choices, having gotten a little tired of the egg-veggie combo I used pretty much through the entire Whole30 paleo experiment.

I also try to keep my breakfasts under 400 calories.

Initially, I turned to having a small banana with almond butter and two slices of turkey bacon. It really filled me up and had enough protein to keep me going!

Today, I just wanted a light breakfast. What I concocted blew my mind and is getting added to the repertoire! I used plain almond yogurt (from Amande), strawberries and a tablespoon of natural bilberry preserves.... it tasted amazing! The almond yogurt has kind of a weird, wet texture, but once I mixed it up with the goodies, that didn't matter. The yogurt has a nice little sweet taste behind it, too.

I really am loving finding a wide variety of food choices available to me on paleo! The only limitations are my own creativity, really :)

The breakfast I had today was no more than 220 calories (one serving of the yogurt is 150 and the jam is about 50). I am more than happy with it because my belly feels full and my taste buds are pleased (both important parts of my meal times!)

Not going to the gym today, going to go groom my horse and walk my dog instead, on this last free weekday that I will have this year (aside from holidays!). Man, I have really enjoyed not working a full time job... life has been slow and sweet and full. But it is time to start amassing some moolah if I want a house and a kid someday :D



  1. Breakfast is something I look forward to every morning! I keep it under 400 calories too aiming closer to 250-300 including my morning coffee with skim milk.

    Good luck with being paleo! I've heard good things from friends :)

  2. Looks like this grrrrllll is gonna have to make a little road trip up to Whole Foods w/the Spawn this week and hunt down that almond yogurt...tres interessant, mon ami...looking forward to it. And, re: your last sentence there...take it from an older and wiser hell with the kids. I mean, mine are awesome and shit but I advise sticking with horses and dogs. ;-) Don't tell them I said that.
