I think my body really enjoyed yesterday’s leisurely morning because today I woke up before my alarm went off (around 7:20 which I know is considered late to some) and I was wide awake! I got out of bed and had time to make a nice breakfast, watch the Today show, drink a cup of coffee, fold a load of laundry, get ready, and pack my lunch before work! My normal morning routine is more like get out of bed, get ready as quickly as possible, grab my breakfast/lunch out of the fridge, and hurry to the metro. I am really enjoying getting up a little earlier and having a lot more time for me in the mornings.
I’m also glad to report that I am feeling a lot better this morning. Soreness wise (from Saturday’s shenanigans) I am feeling 95% better, and sick-wise, 75%. Those numbers are a bit arbitrary, but point is I am feeling a lot better today. I am so glad I took it easy yesterday.
Breakfast today was simple, but delicious. Ever seen one of these before?
It kind of looks like a pear, but it’s actually a Champagne Mango. It’s similar to a regular mango, but is smaller in size and the flesh is less fibrous (doesn’t get stuck in your teeth as much!) I’d never seen these before, but I found them on the grocery store (on sale!) so I picked one up to try and had it today with breakfast. It was delicious! I love mango and this was pretty sweet and juicy, and not stringy like larger mangos can sometimes be. The seed is the same as a larger mango, thin down the middle of the fruit.
I made two eggs over easy, and had each one on top of a toasted piece of Martin’s Whole Wheat Potato Bread (my new fav). I also scored the mango and had that on the side.
This was an awesome breakfast, albeit simple. As you probably know by now, I love love love eggs, and sometimes simple is best when it comes to breakfast!
What’s your favorite way to eat eggs? Or, if you’re not an egg lover, what’s your favorite breakfast? My absolute favorite way to have eggs is poached, but over easy is a close second. As long as the yolk is super runny, I am good.
