I whined on Instagram and someone called me out.
I was complaining about a lack of healthy but fast breakfast options in Springfield when I was reminded that eating at home was a more economical and environmentally friendly option.
Eggs with kale and some oatmeal with chia seeds and cinnamon are my standard breakfast at home and I love it!
But I find myself eating breakfast somewhere else more and more these days. I've come to depend on Starbucks egg white and roasted red pepper egg bites.
But I would love a local option. The problem is most local options are slow and meant to be savored (hello peanut butter and banana toast) or sugar bombs that destroy my blood sugar. (FYI...I'm a type 1 diabetic, not an anti-sugar fanatic.)
Springfield, we have a breakfast problem. We need some better "breakfast on the go" options. There are two I'm going to do a better job of patronizing. They are Traveller's Coffee House and Neighbor's Mill. If you've got suggestions for a quick breakfast that isn't fast food, let me know. (Bonus points for good tea!)
Plus I have another new segment...The Best of Thrive Personal Fitness! Instead of making you search for the best of my ten-year-old blog, I'll be periodically sharing some of my favorite and most-read articles. This week it is Powerful Practices To Help You Love Your Body.
