Dessert for Breakfast & Burn Baby WOD

Good morning and happy Tuesday!


I totally ate apple crisp for breakfast yesterday morning. I actually ate two bowls because I can never eat just one when it comes to my Mom’s Apple Crisp recipe. It is so addictive.

Dessert for breakfast? Totally okay every once in awhile, right?

My favorite dessert-for-breakfast is leftover cake (or a cupcake) with a cup of coffee. The flavor combination is amazing and the caffeine and sugar really get ya going!

After breakfast, I headed to CrossFit for a workout. After a dynamic warm-up, we worked on heavy Back Squats and then finished the class with a quickie workout.


I did the workout as prescribed (#65 Front Squats, #35 KB Swings) and finished in 4:37. Even though this workout was short and sweet, it was definitely a quad-smoker!

After CrossFit, I stopped by Whole Foods for a few groceries to get us through the next couple of days. While there, I bought some Cream of Mushroom soup for lunch, which I paired with a salad that I made at home.

My salad was actually inspired by one that I enjoyed at Elizabeth‘s baby shower on Sunday afternoon. It was soooo delicious, I went to buy the ingredients on my way home! In the mix: romaine lettuce, roasted sweet potato, celery, walnuts, crumbled goat cheese, and creamy balsamic drizzled on top.

After lunch, I ate a few handfuls of Moose Munch, which was a total impulse buy at Marshalls the other day. It’s one of my favorite holiday treats, and it always reminds me of Mal’s grandma. She lived in Medford, Oregon, where Harry & David is located, so we always received goodies from there for Christmas.

    –>Love this post of apple crisp for breakfast because it is totally something that I would do as well! Is there anyway your mom could send the recipe to us readers!

  2. I knew I had become an adult when I came home from college on break and asked my mom if I could have cake for breakfast. Her reply, “Have whatever you want!” I love having a leftover cake, cookie or sweet dessert for breakfast, I just make sure I don’t do it too often!
