Are you a resolution person? I’m completely not into that New Year/New You stuff. I’m not going to suddenly wake up at 4am and workout for 2 hours since I am not a morning person. That being said I am definitely a breakfast person. That wasn’t always the case, but for the past couple years, I’ve woken up STARVING every morning, which has necessitated the whole eating breakfast thing. The thing about needing breakfast and not being able to wake up in a timely manner is that I never have time to make breakfast. So basically I need to eat something, but without it taking any time. Oh also it should be nutritious and filling.
I LOVE muffins. I know, they’re so unhealthy, blah blah blah, but I stand by them, because honestly, who doesn’t want to eat cake for breakfast? And after this election cycle, I think we can all use a little cake for breakfast–am I right? I feel like nothing can soothe your angry/sad soul like some apples, brown sugar and carbs. Sweet, fulfilling carbs.
We live in New York, which could be considered the city of brunch. So why would you need a pancake recipe when you can just go out to one of the hundreds of places? Well the dark side of brunch is the fact that you have to battle everyone else in the city who has the same idea. So that’s where pancakes you can make at home come in handy.
Who doesn’t love breakfast? Truthfully, teenage me was ‘not a breakfast person.’ I always would wake up and be all “I so can’t eat in the morning mom–it makes me feel sick.” Really I think I just didn’t want to wake up 20 minutes earlier in order to have enough time to actually eat. Well, I’m not sure who has the last laugh, but now I wake up starving, so no matter what time I have to leave for work, I’m giving myself time for breakfast.
