Neon.

Something about these photos screams the 80s – neon socks, neon windbreakers, neon slap bracelets.

I had plans for pancakes this morning, but I woke up 15 minutes too late and have to be on my way in just a few.

Cereal it was!

Luckily I’ve had wheat waffles and morning o’s in the house – love both of them. Out of wheat waffles now. I have to decide if I want more or a different flavor! Some Quaker Oatmeal Squares would be divine.

In the bowl:

  • wheat waffles
  • morning o’s
  • berries
  • banana
  • chias
  • coconut
  • almond butter

Have a crunchy day!

OMG Windbreakers! I used to live in those things when I was a pre-teen/teen… so very attractive those were ;)

That bowl is gorgy! Looks like a well rounded breakfast. I just got to work and I am dying of hunger :(

I took a break from my fabulous tofu scrambles, and I made blueberry protein pancakes this morning. They were okay, I did not use my normal recipe. Your breakfast looks more exciting. I did miss my tofu eggs and veggies.

Have a great day!

Ha, the decor does look a bit vintage! But..the cereal still looks delicious :D

Very bright morning! Are wheat waffles some kind of cereal I’ve never heard of, or did you just break up actual waffles?

They are Whole foods brand chex cereal

Mmmm Another fantasic looking breakfast, and oh my gosh I forgot about slap bracelets !!:) brings back memories how I thought they were the best thing invented.

15 The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh January 25, 2012 at 8:48 am

Ooh those match your new light over the table! Slap bracelets. Sigh. I noticed slap watches are becoming popular. I see bruised wristbones in the future of many a tween!

Love slap bracelets! They need to make a comeback!

17 Molly @ RDexposed January 25, 2012 at 8:58 am

Dang those slap bracelets hurt! Why’d we love them so much? I’d rather go for neon breakfasts.

18 Dee January 25, 2012 at 8:58 am

Wow, this looks like a really hearty cereal bowl. Do u find that adding in fruits and such to cereal keeps you full longer? I usually need two bowls to fill me up and even then I find I’m hungry an hour later. :/

Definitely – plus some fat too!

I have unsweetened that Matt gets in bulk at the bakery. It’s similar to the unsweetened in the whole foods bulk bins.

Haha – I wish slap bracelets would make a comeback. They actually banned them at my elementary school. Something about an eye getting poked out… ;)

I love bright colours!! I’ve got 3 bright yellow, blue, and green bowls from Crate & Barrel and they definitely brighten up breakfasts. Slap bracelets.. don’t even get me started! I had TONS of them when I was a kid!

Good thing the 80s are coming back in style! I’m personally digging the hot pink, orange, and green t-shirts that Gap’s been rockin’ lately!

27 Life's a Bowl January 25, 2012 at 9:29 am

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying peanut butter wafflewiches lately [the past two mornings actually haha] but the idea of breaking the waffles up into a yogurt bowl is an awesome idea! I picked up a box of the Kashi blueberry frozen waffles and think they’re awesome :D And you can never go wrong with any of the Vans waffles…

28 Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous January 25, 2012 at 9:31 am

Those berries are so plump and delicious looking!

I eat Quaker Oat Squares every morning..never a bad choice! I would recommend trying the new honey nut flavor- tastes sweeter than the original brown sugar but the sugar content is the same!

Oooh I’ve never heard of (or seen) wheat waffles (other than the ones you put in the toaster) but they look awesome! What brand are they?

Whole Foods brand

Hmmmm…..looks yummy, did you put milk in it too? Where do you buy Wheat Waffles?

As you already know, I LOVE cereal! By far my favorite way to start the day. Although I think a neon green bowl might just take my regular bowl of Kellogg’s FiberPlus(R) Cinnamon Oat Crunch to the next level. Who loves the ’80s? I do! :)

Neon and vibrant colors wake me up, which is a good thing this morning :)

the Blackberries look delish!

47 Suz January 25, 2012 at 11:22 am

Kath–Do you buy organic berries? I know I am so torn when shopping for my son. I want to stick with organic berries, but he eats them so quickly that the price is a tad painful. What are your thoughts on this?

Reply

48 KathEats January 25, 2012 at 12:03 pm

I try to. the only time I don’t is in the middle of the summer when you can get giant tubs of non-organic local berries for so cheap. I just can’t pay more for non-local organics then.

Reply

49 Karen January 25, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Suz – In the winter I purchase frozen organic berries as they are less expensive while being every bit as nutritious as fresh. I find Trader Joes offers the most budget friendly line. You can just defrost a portion as desired!

50 jessica January 25, 2012 at 11:34 am

I don’t know if this concerns you but the quaker oat squares contains BHT….. We used to eat them up but then realized this. So no more for us until they change their ways.

Reply

51 KathEats January 25, 2012 at 12:04 pm

hmmm yeah, that’s not very cool. But I imagine it’s a very very small amount

Reply

52 Tracy January 25, 2012 at 1:45 pm

Whole Foods may have a better version of Quaker Oat Squares maybe? I know Barbara’s Bakery makes a cereal called Shredded Oats that are similar.

Reply

53 Lizzie January 25, 2012 at 11:41 am

Is there a difference between morning o’s and cheerios?

Yep, I have pre-teen kids. They’re definitely back…and slap watches.

Oh man… it’s been so long since I’ve had a bowl of Quaker Oatmeal squares…
a bowl of that with 1% milk is just about the greatest thing I can think of right now.

I just saw in the store the other day that Quaker has a new flavor of the Oatmeal Squares – honey nut. I didn’t buy them or look a nutritional data, but I did try there new Whole Hearts cereal – delicious!

Oh yeah, snap bracelets are the bomb! I had probably 20 or 30 of those babies back in the day. Our elementary school actually had to ban them because they became such a distraction during classes and some kids were using them as weapons. I wish I had saved mine. I bet they’d be worth something someday.. or at least be useful if I ever ran out of manueverable metal.
