Oops Early Morning = Fantabulous Breakfast

Last night, I was already craving a fantabulous breakfast with visions of Great Harvest rolls floating through my head. So, I set my alarm and tried to mentally prepare myself to wake up at the first alarm instead of hitting snooze.

I set my alarm for 6:30am.

Fast forward to this morning. The alarm went off. I felt sooo groggy. I figured one snooze wouldn’t hurt. After one snooze, though, I was up. Imagine my surprise when I turned on the TV to get the news on and I saw the time – 5:40am. What the…?

That’s right. My clock was BROKEN! It was an hour off!

So, the bad news was I lost an hour of sleep. The good news is that I’m awake extra early!!


With my extra time, I prepped that breakfast I was craving. Plus coffee and water to drink.


An egg (cage-free) sammie on a Great Harvest honey whole wheat roll.


A Virginia roll with local honey drizzle. (Both rolls re-heated in the oven for that fresh-baked taste).


Plus all the berries (blueberries, raspberries, strawberries) leftover from yesterday’s delicious vegan/GF fruit tart (click to view the festivities).

Nom nom nom!


Anywho, so I’m a little extra sleepy today, but some positive things have resulted. While I’m normally hitting snooze right about now, I’ve started enjoying a delicious breakfast and I even have time to blog! Sweet! I actually like waking up early, I’m just not so good at it.

Happy Monday!

What are you having for breakfast to start your week?

  1. Hi Diana, I’ve just recently started reading and wanted to say hello. Your breakfast looked delicious. I may have to go pick up the items for egg sammies so I can have them tomorrow. I really relate to having trouble getting up early. I was like a zombie in the mornings. Then I signed up for a workout at 6 am and have been waking up at 5:15 for the past four weeks. I like it, but I don’t think I would have been able to with out the incentive. Keep up the good work!

  2. Love the morning post!!! Your breakfast looked so good, I had a buckwheat pancake, 1 egg, and a strip of turkey bacon! I always reward myself after a good workout!

  3. I am boring; usually a cup of Kashi 7 Whole Grain Puffs with one packet of TruVia and 1/2 cup 1% organic milk and a morningstar farms veg. sausage for protein. 🙂 I hate getting out of bed but do like an early start though I rarely manage it.

  4. Since Lent is over and I can eat bread again (yay!) I had some POWER TOAST, which I have been DYING to try since I saw it on your blog over Lent. It was super yummy and kept me full until lunch (about 6 hours!). It was Great Harvest Low- Carb (don’t know if they have that in your neck of the woods, but it has tofu in it = more protein!) with Maranatha PB + Chia and Flax seeds. To quote you, “nom nom nom!” that plus a tall soy latte and I was set until lunch!
