Whats Green, Minty, and Brown all over?
My breakfast, that’s what!
Breakfast has been utterly uninspired, as of late. It has been such a rush to get out the door for the past few weeks that I have been inhaling Corn Flakes & Almond Milk like a mini Hoover while putting on my shoes and packing my lunchbox. Yesterday, however, I decided to take a moment, breathe, and actually make a little something different for breakfast. It wasn’t pretty so I didn’t take a picture. However, it was delicious and a welcome change! It was a simple bowl of Gluten Free Oatmeal with mix-ins inspired by my favorite Girl Scout Cookie, the Thin Mint.
We may not be able to eat the real thing, but we can eat plenty of healthier substitutes, right?! (Check out my Mint Fudgie Babies!!!) My breakfast contained antioxidant packed Green Tea & Calcium power house Carob Powder. Talk about a healthy alternative to stuffing your face with an entire sleeve of Thin Mints! (…who does that… I’ve certainly never done that…. Okay… maybe one time…. or twenty….)
So, take a moment, whip up a bowl of Green Minty Goodness, and savor your morning! You deserve it!
