Breakfast On-The-Go!

I am not a morning person. {yawn}
I dislike having to get up early at all and go to work/school.
I also have been eating breakfast in my car for the last 7 *eek* almost 8 years. 

You hear that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it's often the most neglected. So instead of filling up your coffee hot chocolate mug full of Marshmallow Mateys or Cocoa Puffs, and hitting the road, we're gonna learn some recipes on how to be healthy- 
On The Go...

First we have a Fruit, Cheese and Walnut Cup. And it is just that:
 fruit (apples, grapes)
your favorite cheese
(That's a little mathematical humor for cubed-ha!)
and walnuts-not candied-we're trying to be healthy here!
A great snack attack that fits perfectly in your mug. 

Next: A PB Waffle.
Need: Peanut Butter and
{preferably} a whole wheat waffle. 
TIP:Here at my house we don't eat a ton of waffles and when we do it's a Saturday, but I will usually make extra and FREEZE them for later.  
Fact:*Rhonda {our mom} makes the best whole wheat waffles in the whole weerld!  And she always makes them when us kids come home. Yum-o!
Dress your waffle up with PB; adding dried fruit or nuts if you're feeling a little wild and Enjoy!

Banana Shakn' Berries
Nesicito: Un Banana
Berries of your choice: Blue, Marion, Rasp, Straw, ect.
Yougurt: A berry, lemón, or vanilla style
Leche or Milk- for all you non-spanish speaking peeps
A **beso (kiss) of honey.
Mix it all up in your blenda and make a splenda breakfast for you and your Glenda...
{Lucky for you if you really know a Glenda, I didn't know what else rhymed with splenda and blenda.}

**Please excuse all my spanish.  I'll feeling a little rusty since my two semesters at BSU.  I'm pretty much fluent, but I just didn't want to overwhelm you with my awesome spanish-ness...Don't be surprised if I slip a word aquí and there, I'm practicing to be a professional ;)

Bear with me. We've got two more Ü

Mornings. Ugg.  Pizza. Yum!
Morning+Pizza = A great day ahead of you.
Have some old french bread? (not moldy-that'd be gross.  Just some left over from spaghetti night) 
Or some plain ol' crusty bread will do
EVOO (as Rachel Ray terms it)
(salt and pepper)
Throw it all on a small cookie sheet WITH aluminum foil-for easy clean up
  *I always forget I'm broiling and always burn my stuff.  So be sure to keep an eye on it.  It should only take a couple mins.
**You can also make this an afternooner snack-just add some spinach- yeah?!

Last one-phew!
I only picked this one as my favorite because it is and sounds so {trulie} DELISH!
Get this: a Cereal Parfait.
You will need: 
The possibilities are endless.

No more boring ugg breakfast on your way to school/work or whenever!
I'm so happy! Now I can feel good about waking up a couple minutes earlier and making something good AND healthy!
