japanese breakfast fried rice

Remember how I used to obsess/panic over what I would pack for lunch?

Well, I’ve moved onto breakfast.

Last week I made a baked oatmeal and this japanese breakfast fried rice. For breakfasts. On work days.

What is wrong with me?! Why can’t I subsist on sprouted bread and peanut butter anymore?

So now, in addition to making and bringing lunches, my lunch bag is bursting at the seams with breakfast as well.

I absolutely loved this breakfast. It has lots of filling protein from eggs and edamame, whole grains and even vegetables which I love to fit into breakfasts as often as possible.

If your breakfast has to have a sweet component, try some fruit on the side!

    My evening meal preparation is turning into a 30 minute ordeal. I also pre-make my breakfast at night as well as lunch and snacks if I’m planning to go to the gym after work. Not to mention that I usually bring three different drinks to work as well…

    This looks awesome! I love eating hearty breakfasts like this on the weekend, but never have time during the week. Why have I never thought to make it ahead of time?? You’re a genius. :)

    Doesn’t it seem ridiculous at times? It is worth it to me, but sometimes I wonder…
