What Breakfast Has Taught Me.12:46 PM
Breakfast can offer you a cheap piece of good advice in the morning if you really need it. I sit down every morning with my bowl of Cheerios, sliced up strawberries, and a cup of green tea with lemon and the contents whisper to me, "Start your day off positive."
I think they just mean that I'm doing the right thing by eating breakfast. When I was in middle school and high school I wouldn't eat breakfast because 1) I could barely get out of bed on time, and 2) I thought that not eating breakfast would help me avoid some weight. (Which is wrong, I'm pretty sure).
You see, your brain needs power before it can start the day off. It needs that jump start, and I don't mean the tall non-fat soy sugar-free caramel macchiato (???) you picked up on your way to work this morning. I mean a hearty, balanced breakfast. Without it, I'm pretty sure my days would be ruined. Once I'm able to start my day off with something fresh, I feel like I can do anything. As breakfast tells me to start me day off positive I'm thinking, here I am, breakfast, doing the positive thing...you're going to change my world.
That last statement is both true and untrue. Breakfast changes my day/world because I allow it to. I look at it in a positive light and allow myself to continue from there. Here's a short list of other things breakfast has taught me:
1. Don't overdo it.
2. Natural sugar > refined sugar.
3. Mornings are the best.
4. A simple life triumphs over a complex one.
5. Fruit is my best friend.
6. Tea is the ocean of my life.
7. The internet can wait.
8. Breakfast talks are time consuming.
9. Breakfast talks are usually the best kind of talks.
10. All good things must come to an end.
I know that Rice Crispies snap, crackle, and pop, but has your breakfast been telling you anything insightful lately? What are some things you've come across in the beginning of the day while nomming on your morning meal? Let me know in the comments.
It's the little things. I hope your strawberries are juicy and your yogurt fresh,
