I’m a firm believer in breakfast being the most important meal of the day. I really can’t start my day till I’ve eaten breakfast. I need it so I can function properly and think, if not I’ll cry and everything will be horrible!

Lately I’ve been all about peanut butter and banana overnight oats and avocado toast. They’re my favorite go-to breakfast foods and I haven’t gotten tired of eating them morning after morning. The amazing thing about overnight oats and avocado toast is that you can mix it up every day. One day you can top your overnight oats with walnuts and chocolate chips and the next you can mix in strawberries and honey. Another day you have goat cheese and tomato on your avocado toast and the next you have refried beans and onions. The possibilities are endless!

I know most people skip breakfast or grab like a pop-tart because you’re in a rush to get out the door to work or to run errands. You don’t have to do that anymore! These recipes are all super easy so you can make them in minutes or you can make them the night before and grab-n-go in the morning.

    I don’t see how people can function without breakfast. Dinner and lunch may fall to the wayside when life gets busy, but breakfast and coffee are non-negotiable. My breakfast routine is generally a bowl of something hot, some sort of fruit, and (most important) a coffee-beverage. Since work requires me to rise at the ungodly hour of 4:30 am and I don’t want to spend any time in the morning cooking, my hot dish is made in a large batch before hand and re-heated as single servings in the work microwave.

    So many new ideas here!
