“Healthy” Drink Shocker

I think the Attune chocolate bar I ate last night sparked a chocolate craving in me this morning.

I figured a bowl of brownie batter hot cereal would ease my sweet tooth a bit and get some chocolate in my belly in a healthier way than a big bowl of chocolate ice cream with hot fudge sauce (which is what I really wanted) would.

Brownie Batter Hot Cereal

Thursday's Breakfast

I enjoyed my bowl of chocolate goodness with a hot tumbler full of my gym’s free coffee. Today’s coffee combination was Barnie’s cinnamon butter cookie and French vanilla coffee flavors combined.

I would have no problem downing a big ice cream sundae for breakfast. I see no boundaries between my meals (which is probably why I love breakfast for dinner so much). Growing up one of my favorite breakfasts was leftover spaghetti with my mom’s marinara meat sauce… I actually preferred it cold. πŸ˜€

Does eating foods typically reserved for dinner or lunch gross you out in the morning, or can you down a slice of pizza before 9 a.m. without a problem?

Bring on the pizza!

“Healthy” Drinks

My friend Katherine emailed me a pretty interesting link the other day. It was an eye-opening look at popular drinks Americans consume daily. The biggest shocker? The “healthy” drink (Naked Protein Zone Banana Chocolate drink, 15.2-ounce bottle) that had 70 grams of sugar… the same amount of sugar found in five Breyers Oreo ice cream sandwiches. Yikes!

Pick One: Protein Drink or FIVE Ice Cream Sandwiches

So which one do you choose?

Pass me the ice cream puh-lease! πŸ˜€

  1. I had almond joy oats this morning πŸ˜‰

    I LOVE breakfast food. No lunch or dinner stuff for me.

  2. BTW…I wouldn’t pick either of those πŸ˜€

  3. I always stick to breakfast foods in the morning only because I love them so much I wouldn’t want to miss them! But I have no trouble eating breakfast foods at lunch or dinner! πŸ™‚

  4. I usually eat breakfast foods in the morning just to try to stay on the healthy side of things…but I’ve been known to eat leftover cold pizza for breakfast! Yum.

  5. I often eat leftover protein from last night’s dinner for breakfast. Or one of my go to breakfasts is a tofu hotdog with sauerkraut. I am not a sweet breakfast person.

  6. I’m definitely the type that sticks to sweet things for breaky. I have no problem with breakfast for dinner though! And between the juice and the ice cream….. I’d choose ice cream without a doubt, any day!

  7. WOW!
    ThatΒ΄s definetely something I would have never thought possible!
    I guess, on that case… Ice-cream, please!
    Hahahaha πŸ˜‰
    Have a great Thursday!
    Brazilian XOXOΒ΄s,

  8. I’ve looked at so many of those Naked drinks, and they’re ALL so high in calories and sugar. Ridiculous!

    I don’t like non-breakfast foods for breakfast usually, unless I”m hungover πŸ™‚ Then, for some reason, they sound SO good!

  9. Oh man!! That’s pretty crazy! I knew those fruit smoothies had tons of sugar but didn’t realize it was that bad. I would definitely go for the ice cream ;). Ohhh and on the dinner for breakfast- I hate hate hate cold pasta sauce!! I can’t stand cold pizza or pasta. I would totally eat it for breakfast if I warmed it up first. I couldn’t tell you why.

  10. I agree that the Naked Juice is high is sugar – it seems to be (I may be wrong though) that it is natural fructose sugar – found in all that fruit that they put into it. I did not see any added sugar listed there. I know it’s high, but I do eat quite a lot of fruit and and I would be OK having it now and again.
    I eat dinner for breakfast quite often. πŸ™‚ Had lasagne leftovers the other day… I heart my breakfast. πŸ™‚

  11. That is a sick amount of sugar! Even if it’s natural sugar, that’s a bit excessive. I would definitely rather just eat a bunch of bananas (or ice cream bars…).
