Spinach & Pepper Breakfast Sandwiches

My breakfast routine has stayed the same for about a year and a half now. I eat a sandwich with egg, Canadian bacon, and cheese that I make in a little breakfast sandwich maker. For a year and a half, that’s the first thing I ate to kick start my day.

I finally got burned out on it.

I’m sick of it.

The thought of Canadian bacon makes me nauseous now. I can’t stand eating one more bite of my standard bearer sandwich. Help!

Meanwhile, I’ve been experimenting with different daily breakfasts. I’m going to cook up a scramble today, and I’ve got plans to make burritos sometime soon. The need for something simple, pre-cooked, and handheld is what I’m seeking. I actually do sit down to eat my breakfast every morning, but I want something that can also be eaten on-the-go.

This newest experience makes damn sure to start your day off on the right foot, nutritionally. This sandwich is so veggie-packed, it’s unreal. Top it off with a dollop of guac of slices of avocado, and this sandwich turns into an otherwordly delight.

If you guys have any ideas for daily breakfasts, let me know. I try to stick to protein/savory breakfasts, so I don’t start the day with a bunch of sugar. Overnight oatmeals are just not my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, I love oatmeal—but I can’t start my day with it.

  1. I do the same thing with breakfast. Eat the same thing until I hate it. Move on to the next thing till I hate it. Rotate back.
    This looks like a yummy change 🙂
