Day 2: Ask yourself 3 questions about your breakfast habits

As I shared yesterday, my daily toast and peanut butter breakfast routine is ready for a revamp. I'm craving more variety, more protein, more fruit! I like having a breakfast routine during the week, though, so any changes have to be easy to implement. With that in mind, here are the 3 breakfast goals I've set up for March:

  1. Eat some fruit with breakfast every day. This is the biggest change I'd like to make to my breakfast routine. Whatever I eat for breakfast, I'd like to add some fruit on the side. This could be a piece of fruit, a bowl of fruit salad, even a fruit smoothie. This will get much easier once winter has passed and we're into summer's seasonal goodness, but it's a habit I'd like to form now.
  2. Choose at least one make-ahead breakfast for the week. As Faith suggested in this awesome post today, I could make a big batch of crepes on Sunday and eat them with avocado or fruit throughout the week. I'm also thinking how easy it'd be to make oatmeal the night before, or a quiche or frittata that would keep for a few days in the fridge. Making at least one thing ahead would help give me the variety I want without taking up a lot of time in the morning.
  3. Cook or eat something special on the weekend. When I look through my Evernote recipes folder, I see I've bookmarked quite a few brunch recipes: bourbon-vanilla pancakes, blackberry scones, savory cheddar biscuits. The weekend is the perfect time to try out a few of these more indulgent recipes, but sometimes a Saturday morning goes by and I'm eating the same thing I ate during the week. So this month I'd like to commit to trying out a new breakfast recipe every weekend. (However, I do love a good bagel with cream cheese from our local bagel shop, so I'm counting that as something special for a weekend morning, too!)
