Breakfast is the bane of my existence. I hate getting up early and have a tendency to hit the snooze button a few too many times, so by the time I manage to drag myself out of bed I’m usually running late for work and don’t have a lot of time to make anything extravagant.
I’m also not a huge fan of traditional breakfasts foods. Sweet carbs like cereal and pancakes make me feel queasy in the morning. I much prefer something savory and high in protein. This morning, since I have the week off from work and my sister is in town and staying at my place, we decided to put our heads together and actually eat a complete morning meal. We heated up the leftovers of that aforementioned Christmakkah chili, toasted some vegan corn bread that our friend Lucia brought over from Sans gluten free bakery in San Rafael (www.sansglutenfreegrocery.com), slathered it in Earth Balance, and were scarfing away five minutes later.
My point here is that, if you don’t want to eat a lot of meat and/or dairy for breakfast, it helps to get creative. Leftovers are always a a quick and delicious way to go. Don’t be afraid to re-purpose the contents of your tupperware containers. -e
