It’s been nearly two months since we’ve been in school, which means you’ve probably had more than a few boring breakfasts.
Whether it’s been Cocoa Puffs every single morning or switching between strawberry and vanilla yogurt, chances are you could use some new, unique breakfast entrees to switch things up a bit.
If you’re fine with eating the same thing every day, more power to you! But for those of us with ever-changing morning munch-y desires, here’s a list of something new you can eat every day of the week:
Monday – Is it really Monday again? Unfortunately, you probably won’t be able to get over that dreaded beginning-of-the-week feeling, but eating a super delicious breakfast can certainly brighten your spirits!
Today, check out the omelets and toss in your favorite toppings (here’s a great way to eat your veggies!). You’re going to want a protein packed meal to keep you awake during your classes. Pair it with a slice of toast or English muffin and you’re good to go!
Tuesday - In my opinion, Tuesday is basically Monday, except that tinge of excitement you get from seeing your classmates again is long gone. I’d recommend French toast this morning. Make it more exciting by topping it with peanut butter and frozen blueberries.
Or, if you’re more traditional, you can’t go wrong with syrup. But you’re looking to skip the extra sugar from it, top your toast with some jelly instead: it’ll sweeten things up without giving you a sugar rush.
Wednesday – It’s Hump Day! Let’s kick the morning off with a bowl of cottage cheese. Mix it with fruit: blueberries, strawberries, or whatever you can find!
Make sure to add in a dash of cinnamon (there’s a shaker by the Grill area) to get an extra zing of flavor. It tastes great topped off on a slice of toast or half a bagel.
Thursday – Don’t be a cereal killer, be a cereal thriller! (Oh geez, not another pun…) Now sounds like a good time to whip out one of those sasquatch bowls. Fill it up with your favorite cereal, but why stick to one?
Mixing two or even three different cereals will give you a unique flavor in every spoonful.
Friday - Power through your last day of classes with a not-so-boring bowl of oatmeal. Here are a few combinations you can try in the dining hall:
- PB&J – Mix ½ cup of oatmeal with a tablespoon each of peanut butter and jelly.
- Chunky Monkey - Mix ½ cup of oatmeal with chocolate sauce and add sliced bananas on top.
- Blueberry Cinnamon – Mix ½ cup of oatmeal with a ladle-full of frozen blueberries, a couple shakes of cinnamon, and a tablespoon of honey.
Saturday – Hallelujah! Finally, Saturday has arrived. To start your weekend, make a kick-ass breakfast sandwich: toast and butter an English muffin, then add 2 sliced hard-boiled eggs to the inside. Throw in some salt and pepper and a couple squirts of hot sauce for good luck.
On the side, cut up an apple and dip in it some au natural peanut butter. Do you hear that? It’s my stomach, already growling for Saturday breakfast…
Sunday – Can you believe it’s been SEVEN WHOLE DAYS since you repeated a breakfast? Don’t stop now! On Sunday, treat yourself to the pancake bar.
Whether they’re chocolate chip or blueberry, pancakes on Sunday is sure to lift your spirits up before your next week of school begins.
All that’s left is drinks: switch it up between milk, tea, coffee and all those weird looking fruit-infused waters you haven’t tried yet. Bon appetit, mes amis!
