I may have mentioned this before, but breakfast is by far my favorite meal of the day. I mean, there are just so many options — endless options really! Sweet or savory, hot or cold, bowl or plate. And now that all of the snow has melted away and the sun is actually out in the sky BEFORE I head off to work, I’m more than ready to put away my trusty white white ramekin that I made oatmeal in eeeeevery morning for what seems like forever, to explore all the wonderful poached eggs with avocado, crunchy granolas, and banana pancakes drizzled with peanut butter that make me truly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
And so I give you >> 13 delicious, healthy, must-try breakfasts!
