The Best Breakfast

What a week this has been! Apparently getting a PhD is not an easy task.. 🙂 I feel like I have about a million things due in the next two weeks and for some reason my motivation has up and left me. While the next little while will be tough, the light at the end of the tunnel is that I get to go back to Alberta in December to see all my lovely pals and my family. Hopefully that can be my motivation! All of that being said, this is a relatively short and simple post, but hopefully one that gives some inspiration to boring old breakfast.

Anyone who follows me on Instagram knows that I love breakfast. I’m not talking about that random smoothie or bowl of cereal you shove down before running out the door in the morning, I mean the lazy weekend morning breakfast where you have all the time in the world.


For a while there I was on a huge pancake kick, berry pancakes, almond butter pancakes, pancakes with poached pears and cinnamon. Lately, I’ve been more into traditional egg breakfasts with some sort of hash. What in the world is a hash you ask? Well watch any episode of the TV show Chopped and you’ll see it’s one of the most commonly cooked meals, aside from bread pudding.


This is a straightforward post and not really a recipe, more of an inspiration to enjoy a good breakfast!


The Best Breakfast
Serves 1, Under 30 minutes, 1 spoon

  1. First, chop up whatever veggies you want to use. I love having fresh tomato and avocado with my breakfast.


2. Then fry up your bacon until your desired level of crispiness. I don’t buy meat regularly, but every once in a while I buy a few slices of bacon from the Kitchener Market for Sunday morning breakfast.

*Note- skip this step if you’re vegan. You won’t enjoy it.


3. Then you’ll want to pop your toast in the toaster, if you’re going that route. I don’t often buy bread so I end up using rice cakes instead.

4. Cook your egg the way you love it. I am the queen over over easy.



*As a side note, if you want to soak up some of the grease from the bacon, you can place it on a plate with paper towel before you assemble your extraordinary breakfast!*


5. Assemble your breakfast as your heart desires. As you can see here, I used some leftover sweet potatoes on the side. Recipe here.


Whether it’s a traditional breakfast,  a breakfast sandwich, pancakes, breakfast hash, an omelette.. just enjoy your breakfast at least once a week. It’s good for the soul!
