Busy mornings can make it easy to get stuck in a breakfast rut with the same routine meal losing its appeal after you eat it day in, day out. For an entire year of high school, I ate Weetbix (or Weetabix for my British friends) cereal before school. Every. Single. Day. Without fail, I started the morning with two Weetbix, milk and brown sugar. It’s been 7 years and I’ve only just been able to start enjoying them again.
I must admit, 2009 was a breakfast rut for me. But it was the year I began eating breakfast for the first time, which was a step in the right direction nonetheless. You might ask: But Sarah, why didn’t you just make something else once in a while? And to that I would answer: I honestly didn’t know how to.
I wasn’t a toast fan because I couldn’t find anything I liked to put on top of it. Side note: Vegemite is our national spread here in Australia and I couldn’t stand the stuff until quite recently. Eggs took too long to cook during a rushed school morning. I wasn’t aware of any other cereals that were reasonably healthy. All I’d heard of were Cocopops, Fruitloops and Frostie Flakes (I hope these names mean something to people outside Oz). So Weetbix it was.
Luckily, I’ve reformed from my boring breakfast ways. I love prepping delicious, healthy and nutritious breakfast recipes on Sunday. But some of my favourite recipes honestly taste good enough to double as desserts. Whether it’s rich, grain-free muffins, a fruit and nut-packed slice, a thick and creamy smoothie or chocolate oatmeal, there are plenty of tasty recipes that will have you turning up for round two after dinner.
