June Blogging Challenge Day 16 - Breakfast

Today's prompt is to talk about what I had for breakfast today and what I normally have.

I'll be honest, for years I didn't eat breakfast. I know what doctors say about breakfast being the most important meal of the day, but it was really hard for me to wake up and shove something in my face. Even when I swam competitively and had morning practices, I wouldn't eat anything until after practice was over. I can count on my hands the number of times I ate breakfast during college and if I did, it was typically left over pizza. Aaaahhhhh, college life.

Anyways, since being diagnosed with PCOS and trying to eat healthier, I've been trying to eat a healthy breakfast. Usually I take some sort of small pastry like a few mini muffins, a turnover, or a slice of breakfast bread, as well as some sort of fruit to work and eat around 9:30 or 10 when my stomach has waken up a bit. Today is a bad example because I had to work which happens once or twice a month and I didn't give myself time to grab breakfast so I'm just drinking a personal sized Simply Lemonade with Raspberry.

I've always been one to prefer pastries and fruit over eggs and bacon. For some strange reason I just can't stomach something so heavy in the morning. I do get random cravings for eggs now and then, but I generally don't eat them until brunch time. I'd say my all time favorite breakfast item is crepes. I'll never say no to a good crepe. 


Since today is Father's Day, I just want to wish all of the dads, dads to be, and dads in waiting a happy Father's Day. Whether you're holding your child in your arms or in your heart, today is a day to celebrate you. No matter if you're changing dirty diapers, or sticking a needle in your wife's butt every night, we couldn't go on this road of infertility with you. 


  1. Ohhh....I'm with you on the crepes. Yummy!

  2. I LOVE the last paragraph. What a beautifully written father's day wish.
