There are two types of breakfast eaters: creatures of habit who can eat the same thing day after day, and those who get bored with routine and like to mix things up in the morning. I’m admittedly in the first camp: I go through phases where I relish eating the exact same dish day in and day out; something about the repetition of the morning routine makes me feel calm. In college, my go-to was a bowl of plain greek yogurt with strawberries and bananas… then there was my steel cut oats with cinnamon and blueberries phase. I’ve had chia pudding periods and avocado toast addictions. Most recently, there were a few months where I alternated between smoothies and smoothie bowls pretty much every day. The only challenge? Everyone else in my family is of the “mix it up” variety, so I’m always on the hunt for slight tweaks on our go-to breakfasts that add flavor without adding any extra prep time to our mad-dash mornings. Keep scrolling for my two favorite updates for this fall.
