A Girly Breakfast – Yogurt and Fruit

You know, I really enjoy my manly breakfasts, but sometimes all a girl wants is some sweet cherries, creamy yogurt, and peanut butter. Loooots of peanut butter.

In this case, loooots of PB2. Yep, I still order PB2 – I try not to use it too often as it’s expensive, but I pull it out at least a few times a week. I’m still plugging away at the shipment I got over a year ago (16 jars, I think).

This breakfast bowl consists of:

  • Fage 2% Greek yogurt (almost a cup?)
  • ~1/2 cup of chopped cherries (I keep typing “cheeries“)
  • 2 tablespoons of PB2, mixed with 1 tablespoon water
  • a few drops of vanilla stevia

I’ve had it every morning this week for breakfast! I wonder when I will get tired of it.


In other news, I have slooooowly been going back through my old posts and editing them. I have found some great old recipes if you want to check them out! It’s really interesting to me to see how my taste has evolved (but in some cases not evolved at all) over the years.

These were all baked in a very old, decrepit kitchen in Collegetown in Ithaca, NY. They were tried by roommates and friends. I think I remember the oatmeal bread being a favorite – I’m pretty sure I made it several times.


What is your favorite thing to make for people? What is your favorite breakfast? Do you like fruit and yogurt as much as I do?

  1. Pretty jealous of your PB2 stash. I have a love/hate relationship with that stuff. Used to hate it b/c I thought it was too salty, then tried it again, fell in love, ran out, and then the company stopped making it for a while or something, and peanut flour just isn’t the same.

    I remember a recipe of yours that I made once or twice and loved – oatmeal biscuits. Need to revisit those. 🙂

    1. These? http://www.thesaladgirl.com/2009/02/15/oat-bran-mini-scones-macrobiotic/

      or… these? http://www.thesaladgirl.com/2009/02/07/stovetop-baking-soda-biscuits/

      I don’t think you’ve done these but they are quite good (haven’t made them in years though): http://www.thesaladgirl.com/2007/12/13/oatmeal-raisin-applesauce-cookies/ (They are probably not as fatty as what I eat nowadays but I remember liking them, and Bobby did too.)

      And now looking through my recipes I want to make these – http://www.thesaladgirl.com/2010/07/29/janet-each-to-their-own/ (That was a guest post and I never made them!)

      And speaking of that first link, I think you made my macrobiotic pie! CD liked it if I remember correctly 😉 – http://www.thesaladgirl.com/2009/05/25/awesome-macrobiotic-apple-raspberry-pie/

      P.S. I think I tried peanut flour once and was so disappointed I went right back to PB2. It’s not too bad if you buy in bulk; the jars end up being less than $5 each (even including shipping).

  2. OMG, I think its so funny when I look at some of my old posts and thought the photography was pretty decent – its so funny!

    I still tend to lean towards my egg sammies and my beloved cheese for bfast, although I had sauteed peaches with blueberry oat pancakes last weekend and it was delicious!

    Hope you have a great weekend Maggie!

  3. I’m a huge fan of fruit with honey or peanut butter so I can relate. I’ve never tried PB2 but it sounds intriguing… and promsing. I’m also a fan of Greek yogurt in almost any manifestation so clearly I have to try the combo above 🙂

    And I laughed out loud at the Collegetown kitchen comment. I’m a year out of Ithaca and I miss it. Thanks for the laugh 🙂 And major kudos to you for getting off meal plan and being so creative with your diet. I wish I had done the same! I just wanted to ask– what brand of whole wheat flour did you use for the bread. I’d really like to try the recipe.

  4. I’m obsessed with Fage Greek yogurt, honey and Metropolitian Bakery granola (a local spot by my house that makes granola). So good!
