An Udi-ful Day – Breakfasts

Do you know what I love about Udi’s muffins, bagels, and breads?

When I eat them, I forget that I’m eating gluten free.

Do you know what I mean? Some gluten free substitutes I’ll be eating and it and think “This tastes good for gluten free.”

But when I eat an Udi’s bagel, I just think “This tastes good.”

Especially the Double Vanilla Muffins.

Oh man these muffins! Do you remember the Sara Lee Pound Cake in the freezer section? It came in an aluminum tin; I LOVED it as a kid. Well friends, these muffins taste IDENTICAL to that cake! The flavor and texture are perfect. Just perfect. Hmmm… now my mouth is watering!

Most mornings this summer I’ve been in a rush to get to bootcamp before work. That’s why I LOVE Gluten Free Breakfast Parfaits.

You don’t need no stinkin’ gluten!

Oh yeah. It’s good. And it takes NO TIME to put together. I make it the night before, pop it in the fridge, and it’s good to go in the morning.

In a mason jar, start with a layer of yogurt. Choose your favorite! I had Greek Vanilla Yogurt on hand, but feel free to mix it up! Next come the berries. Again, feel free to customize the layers to your own tastes. I love fresh strawberries and blueberries when they’re in season. Your third layer is a bit of  gluten free vanilla muffin. Then repeat.

I sliced my Udi’s gluten free muffins:

to make the layers. But you could also crumble the muffin for the layers. Your choice! I sliced because it was less messy and helped maintain the layers.

Oh the layers.

Full of fiber, protein, and antioxidants, it’s like eating a dessert!

On mornings when I have a bit more time, I love to make my favorite savory breakfast.

It actually only takes about 5 minutes to make: One half of an Udi’s Gluten Free Everything Bagel topped with smashed avocado, fresh tomato, an overeasy egg, and Cabot cheese.

YUM!

Just using one half of an Udi’s bagel helps save calories and $$, and it’s just as filling when it’s topped with healthy fats!

On SUPER RARE mornings when I have nothing but time:

Udi’s Gluten Free Breakfast Pizza – I mean seriously. Cheese, tomato, red onion, avocado, overeasy egg, and bacon! SO GOOD!

Why am I writing this blog post before I’ve had breakfast?!

What about you?

Favorite quick breakfast? Favorite breakfast when you have more time?
