Dear reader, let me introduce you to the most fabulous breakfast that you'll ever meet. His name is Apple Chowder, and I have no doubt that once you see him in person, it'll be love at first sight.
Now, I know what you're thinking:
"I worked so hard to snag Mr. Popularity (aka: "Johnny Cereal"), and now that our "routine" is down to just 5 mins, why in God's name would I wanna leave him?"or
"But Old Reliable (aka: "Oatie Oatmeal") and I have been kickin' it since the days of middle school, and he's always been so good to my heart - I'm not taking a chance on someone who might break it!"Don't worry, I completely understand. You and your breakfast already have a great relationship going, right? I mean, it's not like you get hungry before noon is it? And you're certainly not getting tired of having the same thing over and over again, are you?
Just to be clear, I would never implore you to completely abandon your breakfast of choice. I understand that there's something inherently comforting about having a breakfast routine, no matter how simple it might be.
My go-to "breakfast" is typically a Kashi granola bar, a piece of fruit, and a travel-mug of hot tea (Earl Grey or Darjeeling). So, believe me, I'm all for breakfast routines...
However, I also know that you shouldn't underestimate the power of adding something new - and delicious - to the start of your day. So go ahead, see if you can resist this bowl of crisp, juicy fruit topped with a decadent, maple-nut butter drizzle. It might make your regular breakfast jealous, but Mr. Chowder is totally worth it.
