I mostly eat the same breakfast every morning. An egg sandwich. 1/2 cup of egg beaters, 1 slice of reduced fat cheese and some sort of bread (the bread changes, it might be regular whole wheat, it might be an english muffin, etc.) This breakfast keeps me full until lunch time, four hours later. Whenever I switch it up, I get hungry much quicker. For example. yesterday I had oatmeal with some almond butter and pumpkin butter. And of course, I was famished two hours later. It’s funny how different things fill different people up. I know that a lot of bloggers eat oatmeal for breakfast and are completely content until lunch. I am just not one of them. What do you eat for breakfast? Do you find yourself hungry before lunch time? Do you eat basically the same thing every day?
I’m finding this meal planning thing to be easier that I thought. Really the hardest part is figuring out what I want to make. Jotting down the ingredients on my grocery list and actually buying them is pretty easy. Now granted, I’m starting out pretty slowly. I planned three dinners for the week. Last night was the Indian meal, tonight will be chicken fingers and Thursday will be tortilla pizzas, which is not even really a recipe.
I’ve been thinking about how to give my blog more structure. Maybe structure isn’t the word I’m going for. Fluidity, perhaps. A lot of food bloggers take pictures of every meal. While I don’t want to do this myself, it does seem to provide better flow. The pictures sort of become woven into the story of what said blogger did all day. i.e. I went running X miles this morning (talks about run) and then afterwards ate breakfast (shows picture and recipe etc). Mine is more like me talking about something random in one paragraph, then showing a recipe with a picture in the next, then talking about something completely different in the following. Do you know what I mean? It isn’t fluid. Maybe I should post recipes in their own posts and not try to intersperse them into my daily thoughts? This post is a perfect example. Although there is no recipe, these three paragraphs are about something completely different. My thoughts just jump around like that (hence, the abundance of parentheses). I’d like to get input on this. What would make my blog entries seem more fluid? Or is everything okay the way it is?
