Three things that are making me happy right now:
- My new custom made dining table (more on that at a later date).
- Long summer days.
- Hearty breakfast bowls that keep me full for HOURS.
I’m thinking back to those office mornings where I used to be in a routine of:
- Small breakfast on my way to work at 7:00am.
- Second breakfast snack around 9:30am.
- Lunch about 12:30pm.
- Second snack 3:30pm.
- Dinner around 6:30pm.
- STILL HUNGRY AT NIGHT.
Gosh that is a lot of food and meals to think about.
I wish I would have considered eating meals that actually sustained me for longer than just two-three hours. I thought about food a LOT because I always felt likeI was hungry; in hindsight I realize I wasn’t eating enough.
I wish I would have asked myself “I wonder what it would be like to eat until I was full?”
Can you relate?
And I also wish I would have considered eating something like this big breakfast bowl back then.
Quinoa, Egg & Veggie Breakfast Bowl
This has got it going ON.
We’re talking good carbs, healthy fats, fiber from veggies and delicious root veggie hash browns from Dr. Praeger’s to take this breakfast bowl up a notch. The root veggie hash browns are made with a medley of carrots, Yukon Gold potatoes, rutabaga, taro & yuca. Root veggie are my FAVE and these little hash browns are too good.
Oh, and if you haven’t heard of Dr. Praeger’s they are an awesome food brand bringing you high quality, convenient foods in the frozen section. YEP – the frozen section.
If you’re thinking, “Uh, the frozen section?” with a hint of skepticism, I understand. Years of relying on “lean pockets” and “lean cuisines” only to learn those weren’t actually good for me, had me re-thinking the whole frozen packaged foods thing for awhile too.
But the good news is times are-a-changing and there are actually loads of convenient, frozen foods out there that are actually good for you – Dr. Praeger’s being one of my favorite go-to brands for quick, easy and delicious food items to add to your plate.
