Current Breakfast Obsession: The Humble Yogurt Bowl

I’m not quite sure when this happened, but at some point this spring/summer, I started throwing a random yogurt bowl into my breakfast rotation.*  Turns out whole milk Greek yogurt is pretty incredible and topped with perfectly ripe summer fruit and a little bit of granola, you have the makings of a breakfast that’s quick, filling and makes for a beautiful Instagram picture really freaking delicious.

As an extra dose of endorsement, Joey actually requested a yogurt bowl breakfast during our trip to the cabin last weekend.  And again just yesterday morning!  And he only eats the best of the best, so you know it’s good.

*Is it really a rotation if it’s 90% overnight oats and 10% waffles?

Also, I’m not going to tell you how to live your life, I’m just going to strongly suggest you get the whole milk, full fat, unflavored Greek yogurt.  Reminds me of when we used to have a milk delivery and would eat the cream off the top with a spoon.  Those were the days!  Also, if you don’t have a go-to granola recipe, might I strongly suggest this one (my current go-to), this one (because it has a bit of everything) or this one (for that fall vibe)?

What’s your favorite breakfast right now?

Current Breakfast Obsession: Overnight Oats with Kefir

Bet you thought I forgot about this post series.  Bet you thought I’d been living off oatmeal on the weekdays and waffles on the weekend.  Bet you thought I’d revert back to my almond milk and banana overnight oat summer self once June rolled around.  You bet wrong.

My TimeHop reminded me of this post I wrote last May and these overnight oats with kefir that I ate a few times but then moved on and forgot about.  So sad when that happens.  But they’re back!  And I’m loving them every single morning, except for on the weekend, when I really am just eating waffles…

Just know I bought whole milk plain kefir instead of low-fat and it’s the creamiest!  If you’ve never tried kefir it is thick like yogurt but much less tangy.  I truly love it.  I ran out of coconut flakes and have been topping these with fruit and granola instead and it makes life feel very good.  Try it!
