Efficient-See!

"efficiency"... "efficient-See".. get it?

Breakfast:

I think there are plenty of ways to eat a completely delicious, healthy meal without laboring over it. I hate spending a long time cooking breakfast, it just seems so unnecessary. While I realize that adding in lots of things to a meal can be fun and totally delicious, sometimes I think its just plain silly to make everything so complicated! ( yes, i am fully aware that I do this sometimes as well and I am calling myself silly just as much as anyone else).

I am especially impatient because I have a whole day ahead of me to get started, get going, write, read, run, play, work etc. I understand why so many people would skip breakfast because of their busy schedules. Plus, I hate having to clean more dishes ( "i ain't got no dishwasher" ).  I make almost everything in my microwave or in my toaster oven- to save energy, to save time, to save dishes- I like to be efficient.

However, as a future dietician/ gastronome- I always conjures up these delicious ideas of healthy eats:   i.e  Pumpkin Pie for One Breakfast, B_Healthy Stuffed French Toast - Even with these, I am always eating breakfast within 10-15 minutes of starting to make it.

Today, the efficient B_Healthy totally won.
