What's for Breakfast?

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day because I LOVE breakfast foods. Recently I tried out these Van's 8 Grain waffles from Target with peanut butter and cinnamon for breakfast and they kept me full till lunch time! The waffles are 160 calories for 2 and have only 3g of sugar. Instead of syrup I always top my waffles with peanut butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Peanut butter can add a lot of calories to your daily intake so I recently got some Better'n Peanut Butter from Trader Joe's which is less in calories, fat and sugar than regular peanut butter. This is a healthier option of peanut butter which doesn't go unnoticed--> I wouldn't lick the knife after spreading it, but it still gets the job done by adding a creamy fulfilling taste that I look for. I try to eat more calories in my earlier meals rather than for dinner so I usually will pair this with either yogurt or walnuts & almonds. 


I once read an article explaining the many benefits of cinnamon for your health which is why ever since I sprinkle a little bit on my waffles and cereal for breakfast. I recently came across this summary of benefits on pinterest and thought I'd share.
