Confession time. I'm not very good to myself at breakfast. I'm rushed and distracted and I tend to eat a piece of toast standing up in the kitchen and then run. Oh, I'm better the rest of the day and I will eat fruit and vegetables and yogurt before it's all done. But, seriously, what a piss-poor way to start the day. No more, though. I'm vowing to reform.
And in the time it normally takes for my bread to toast, I had all these ingredients layered into a jar and ready to go. What I especially liked, while I was eating it at my desk checking emails, is that I wasn't trying to get through it as fast as possible, like my toast. I really liked digging in and finding the bits of apple and little clusters that are in granola. This was fun. And healthy. And it kept me full till lunch. I'm a reformed woman. And I'm heading off to the market to stock up on my cottage cheese, granola and apples because this is definitely my new thing. Enjoy!
