    I always go for looking for a new cereal that I can do tons of different combos with! Maybe a good cocoa kind for some chocolate in the morning!

    I think the Road ID is a great idea! My favorite quick breakfast is instant oats with some greek yogurt on top and peanut butter! The combo of fat, protein and carbs really keeps me full!

    I am allergic to penicillin too! My doctor advised me to get a medic alert bracelet. It basically is like the Road ID except I wear it all the time. My go to breakfast is a ww english muffin with almond butter and apple butter. Good luck this weekend!

    I have the same Road ID! The blue one that goes on the shoe! Got mine for Christmas and I love it too! Especially since it’s usually dark when I start and finish my runs most of the time!

    Mushroom, Spinach, Goat Cheese Omelet on Arnold’s Sandwich Thin with pumpkin butter always makes me happy!

    My all-time favorite breakfast is a toasted Ezekiel English muffin with tahini, honey, and cinnamon, and fruit on the side. In fact, I’m eating it right now! πŸ˜€

    Good luck this weekend!! You’re going to rock it.

    You are so great about being safe! I think its a good idea that you took today off. You’ve got a huge weekend coming up!
    French toast is a fav breakfast of mine. I plan on making it tomorrow πŸ™‚

    Hi Meghann! I was just wondering how many calories you try to consume on a long run day, such as a 12 mile training day. I am started to train for my 1/2 and am a little lost on the nutrition part. Do you eat past fullness so you make sure you get all the calories or what is your advice? Thanks!

    I have to sing the praises of Ezekiel english muffins too! I love their cinnamon raisin english muffin toasted, 1/2 with almond butter and sliced banana and the other with strawberry jam + coffee and OJ = heaven! It’s really energizing too!

    I ordered my RoadID yesterday, and I definitely made my penicillin allergy known too!! I can’t wait to get mine! πŸ™‚

    I love berry smoothies with ff yogurt and egg whites (on the side) for more protein. Yummy!

    Great safety message – I may need to order one soon. I love the quote even more!

    I like waffle sandwiches for breakfast! Take 2 toasted waffles, spread with PB and jelly/fruit butter/ sliced fresh fruit, top with a little granola and smush together. Yum.

    I just saw Sarah from LovINmytummy make some awesome looking bread pudding. It was for dessert, but could be an awesome breakfast! I also always want to have smoothies for breakfast, but think I’d have to have something to eat with it bc the lack of chew would throw me off!

    I also have a road ID (pink bracelet) and think that it is a wonderful idea!

    I don’t know if you’re a big PB person?? But i love the wafflewich with PB, and maybe strawberries cuz you don’t do banana right?? Good luck this weekend :D!

    Seems like you crave grains in the AM just like me, so maybe you would like overnight oats? I was a little apprehensive to try them at first because I thought they would be mushy… But they turned out great!

    Good luck without cereal! I don’t think I could handle an oats free week.
    I do love smoothies for breakfast!

    Fave breakfast is overnight oatmeal with 2 chopped dried figs, pumpkin, diced apple, Greek yogurt, coconut, and maple syrup! Try it and let me know what you think!

    Very nice ID! I like the quote πŸ™‚

    My go-to is oatmeal (of course), but I’ve been mixing it up with smoothies lately. And don’t forgot about things like eggs or egg sandwiches – great on protein.

    great breakfast ideas here πŸ™‚

    some of my favorites:
    – kath’s baked oatmeal
    – homemade carrot raisin muffins crumbled into yogurt
    – granola, cottage cheese and banana parfaits
    – mushroom + goats cheese egg white omelettes w/ toast
    – baked beans on toast (a British thing- NOT the typical American baked beans!)

    Yes for the road ID, what a great present!

    I would definitely suggest yogurt & bars combinations, cottage cheese with fruit, omlettes, french toast or waffles for a bfast switch up.

    Also, check out this great article about whole-grain breakfasts:

    Have a good day!

    Go simple… eggs, toast, fruit. You’ve got your fat, protein, grains and some fruity goodness. Yum!

    Haha, Meghann–No joke, I totally thought you had started a cereal-free week already! That cereal looked like bits of ground beef to me, and I was momentarily SO confused!

    Yay for the RoadID. What a thoughtful and awesome present!

    Good luck this weekend!

    Haha how funny! I used to be insanely addicted to cereal so I understand how you’re going to try and go cereal free for a week. I think I’ve kind of replaced my cereal obsession with oats in the morning but I’m thinking cereal will make another appearance once summer comes around. Love the road ID πŸ™‚ What time do you usually run in the morning?

  32. Emily

    I should really invest in a road ID! I like that you can wear it attached to your shoe.

    Have a great weekend!

    I really need to invest in a RoadID. I’m usually an early morning runner as well and soon will not have my ‘rents knowing my route and time if something were to happen to me.

    I was in a cereal every morning rut, but then i started blogging and got addicted oatmeal! oats made with cinnamon, banana, half water and half milk, and pecans is my favorite breakfast!

    Other ideas:
    -An avocado and egg sandwich
    -Blueberry pancakes with almond butter
    -Eggs scrambled with veggies and cheese

    Can’t wait to see how your week goes!

    egg sandwichs, pb on toast/english muffin, waffles, cottage cheese on an english muffin, whole wheat bagels, or yogurt and granola (granola isn’t “cereal” right??)

    Haha…your mantra is my mantra! I can’t tell you how many times over the years I’ve told people the reason I run is so that I can eat whatever I bake…I guess great minds (and cousins!!!) think alike!

    Good for you getting a Road I.D.! I’ve wanted one for ages, but haven’t gotten around to ordering one. This month I will, maybe as a little b-day present to myself. πŸ™‚

    Have fun and GOOD LUCK this weekend!!!

    Gina’s breakfast cookie! Or oatbran topped with PB πŸ™‚ Yum…

    Also, I love simple scrambled eggs on toast with jelly. Delicious.

    I’m impressed with giving up cereal for a week! I eat it every day, even if it means it’s a part of lunch or dinner πŸ™‚

    Good luck in your races!

    Hmm, I’m kinda in a breakfast rut – but I love cereal. I know you do too though!
    What about a sando? Those are kinda fun.
    Nice Road ID! Safety first baby!

    I’m glad you’re being safe!!! Unfortunately I don’t think I have any super creative breakfast ideas. Usually I stick to cold cereal, oatmeal, or yogurt with fruit, but the other day I had waffles with pbj and a banana πŸ™‚
