breakfast time.

Morning is my favorite time of day.  It’s quiet, stress-free (well, usually), and full of lots of energizing things:

black coffee…


reading material…




stovetop oats…


[clearly not on the stove]

My version:

  • 1/2 c oats
  • 1/2 c soy milk
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1 banana (1/2 cooked in, 1/2 added at the end)
  • various assortments of fresh and dried fruits

After cooking, I add:

  • 1 T ground flax
  • a couple spoonfuls plain yogurt
  • various assortments of nuts and nut butters

Fun fact:  

My bedroom has no natural light due to a complete lack of windows.  I live in a studio converted into a 2 bedroom (it’s not as dollhouse-sized as it sounds), but the tradeoff was that only one bedroom got the window.  Waking up in pitch black definitely took some adjustment; luckily, we have a beautiful mini terrace for all my sunny (and photo-taking) needs.  

How do you start your morning?

PS: Thanks for the sweet comments on my first post!
