Spring has arrived and with it, a renewed interest in healthy eating and exercise. I’ve been trying to vary my workout routine day by day, with Zumba and Pilates and I’ve even decided to devote one day a week to running. I have never ever liked to run or jog, but I know it can have a really great impact the body, so I’m willing to give it a go.
Along with (almost) daily workouts, I’ve been more mindful of what I eat. So far, the best thing for me is to have a smoothie or something small for dinner while eating good things during the day. Who wants to work out after they’ve eaten a heavy meal? Not me. My biggest problem is breakfast because I never feel like I have enough time to make anything good. This means I either don’t eat or I grab Starbies, which isn’t bad, but it’s not something I should have every day. The Kitchn posted their Cooking Cure for the Spring, which helps readers get to know what they’re eating and inspires them to try some new things. While I haven’t kept up with the entire program, I’ve been bookmarking bits and pieces. A few breakfast/energy ideas came up, and this one seemed pretty tasty to me: Blueberry Breakfast Bars.
The recipe is really simple, with yummy blueberries and whole wheat flour. I loved the way they turned out! My main issue was figuring out how to store them properly, since I was the only one at home who was eating them. Still, making these bars was quick and easy. If you’re looking for something to shake up your breakfast routine, give these a try!
What’s your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? Any ideas for on-the-go meal?
