does anyone else here get into breakfast ruts? i went three years eating the exact same thing for breakfast every weekday (1/3 c. oatmeal, soy milk, almonds, raisins & dried cranberries) until one day i could take it no longer.
the crazy thing is that before that day, i loved it, without fail. often ate it for lunch, too.
the past year it’s been peanut-butter & pure raspberry jam on toast. but i’ve discovered a variation on this beautiful theme that will keep me on this particular addiction a while longer: tahini.
tahini & jam on toast. on days when i’m feeling crazy, it’s tahini & red-pepper jelly on toast.
as the friend who introduced me to this marvel of a breakfast option explained, “tahini on toast will be all you’ll eat for breakfast for months. you’ll forget that peanutbutter even exists. then, one day you’ll run out of tahini, and reluctantly pull the pb from the cupboard in its stead. it will be the most delicious thing you’ve ever tasted. you’ll forget all about the tahini. that is until the process reverses itself, and its back to tahini. you’ll find yourself caught in a blissful cycle of tahini & pb that will never end.”
