breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I can respect you if you don’t agree, but I will be honest.. HOW COME IT ISN’T?
sorry that was aggressive. my love for breakfast is aggressive :). first thing when I wake up I text my crush <3… NOT. haha. first thing when I wake up my mind says “food, food, food”. when I go to bed I get excited for breakfast. yeah, it’s that bad. I got it bad for you, bfast. I got it bad <3.
this is a breakfast meal I have often. I make these yogurt bowls because they are quick, tasty, and simple. good qualities about a meal for one. most of my breakfasts are eaten alone, and I don’t think I am alone in that statement. why does “alone” often have a negative stigma attached to it.?
“yea I heard he went to the show alone.”
“all by himself???”
as I mentioned this you probably felt sorry for me. pls don’t. why is being by yourself so unacceptable? I would love company at breakfast, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love my own company at breakfast. it doesn’t mean eating breakfast with myself is sad. I enjoy myself. I say “with myself” on purpose. I am not “by myself”. I am not beside a persona that is me. I am with myself, I am spending time with me. after all, I just graduated college and I am ~figuring myself out~. right?
I am the person I spend time with most, and the person I ignore the most. I ignore myself to check up on what other people are doing. why should I keep ignoring myself? social media makes me think I need an audience for everything I do in order for it to have meaning. I am more at fault for believing that than the sm platforms. I must remind myself that I can take in experience without an audience. it can be meaningful, it can be real, and it can be just for me. I can live without an audience. and it is not sad. I find myself always wanting to share share share. why shouldn’t I enjoy something simply for me? is seeking affirmation from others for the cool things I do taking away from my own appreciation for the cool things I do? am I diving too deep into this idea?
I LOVE my friends.
I love spending time with them; however, there are benefits of spending time with only me. when I am alone my experience is completely my own and unfiltered by other views. if you bring a friend to a concert of a band you love, of course you are going to be affected if they like it or not. but, would I, brynn, even go to that concert alone? I hope so. after all of this would you believe I call myself an extrovert? I recharge by spending time with other people. when my friends can’t hangout I get bummed and I forget to appreciate my alone time. I would be bummed if no one could go to the concert with me. this is why I am reminding myself that YES, I should recognize how valuable time is alone. time with me is important. if I believe my friends should be excited to hangout with me, then I too should be excited to hangout with me. am I sounding a little vain now? idk. I love me. ha.
abruptly back to the food, YOGURT.
this bowl is kind of like a dessert to be honest. creamy, fruity, crunchy..yes pls.I like putting frozen blueberries in my yogurt because the coldness is familiar to ice cream. blueberries also have a lot of fiber which helps regularity in the digestive system ;). coffee and these blueberries will get me ready to read the paper on the john before lunch time. am I gross or just honest?
fruits and nuts are a good combo in taste and in health. these fruits are a simple carb that breakdown quickly and give you energy fast, while nuts will give you a longer lasting energy through the day. fruit and nut trail mix is no accident babe. this bowl will give you an energy boost and sustain your hunger until lunch.
did I take too many photos of this one bowl? maybe.
