The Most Important Meal

I think I have a new favorite breakfast. I love my green monsters, but sometimes I just want a little more substance on days when I wake up to my stomach’s threat to eat itself it it’s not filled in five, four, three, two…


My version of substance this morning was a whole grain bagel with whipped cream cheese, fresh spinach, and tomato slices.

I don’t think any more words are necessary here.

Except about the coffee. It’s Starbucks Serena Blend, alternatively titled “Perfection in a Little White Bag.”

I love my coffee bold, but for a medium roast, it’s pretty punchy! I won’t lie, I totally bought it for the bag, but the citrus and floral notes were a second driving factor 😉 Neither is overpowering, and the tang of the citrus is counteracted by the mellow florals. It’s definitely the perfect breakfast coffee.

You know how some people are wine connoisseurs? I could totally be a coffee connoisseur. Except I have to learn how to spell it first, because I just sent my spellcheck into a tizzy. So much for being an English Major, right?

Are you a big breakfast person, or do you need less to kick off your day?

    I’m a HUGE breakfast person because I seem to always be hungry when I wake up in the morning. It’s far and away my favorite meal of the day. I often go to bed at night dreaming about what I’m going to make in the morning! Lol.

  2. I’m a hugeeee breakfast person! It’s the first goal of my day and I have to eat within about 10 minutes of waking up or I become unbearable – watchhhh out! (:

    mmm so droolworthy. I absolutely LOVE bagels!
    I’m not a big breakfast person on weekdays… I tend to snack late at night so I’m not very hungry when I wake up. I usually eat a small breakfast and then have lunch around 11:30. On weekends though….chances are I was out late the night before, and have slept in- so I’m ravenous when I wake up! I love huge brunches with lots of carbs 😀

  6. I’m a huge breakfast person – I absolutely NEED a filling meal in the morning. This bagel sandwich looks great!
