This isn’t a recipe. It’s more like, “what I ate this morning,” and I’ll warn you, I don’t eat normal breakfast foods very often. Sure, I love a good bowl of oatmeal as much as the next person, but I ate it every day for so many years that I actually have oatmeal burnout. Cold cereal is also delicious, but it doesn’t last long in this busy New Yorker’s belly. I like to think outside the cereal box! Here’s what I ate this morning before trekking off to the Brooklyn Museum (followed by a job interview, followed by work, followed by another long walk.)
I started with a whole grapefruit and a cup of Lady Grey tea.
After my shower, I scarfed a mango with some unsweetened soy yogurt and a spoonful of ground flax (omegalicious?). I wouldn’t normally bother with something like soy yogurt since it’s not especially tasty, but I’ve been on antibiotics, so I need to repopulate my gut with some good bacteria.
After that, I microwaved some frozen kale and leftover lentils, threw in the juice of half a lemon, some avocado, and a dash of Slap Ya Mama. I added a side of beet salad, topped with sunflower seeds.
Friday, I am ready for you!
