Bracing myself for the day

I don't dread going to the geek/nerd store. In fact, I really enjoy it and I usually end up wasting tons of time staring longingly at Xbox 360 games and the latest horror movie DVD's.

But, even though I enjoy it, I still always leave the store feeling like I have run the gauntlet or survived some kind of fraternity hazing ritual.

Knowing I would need a hardy breakfast to brace myself for the day, I broke out two items I picked up at the store the other day.

Herbed egg whites:

Scrambled egg whites with paprika, basil, a pinch of salt and black pepper to taste.
I was inattentive with the eggs this morning. I was cutting up my orange when I should have been hovering at the stove waiting for the perfect time to take the eggs off the heat.

Instead of being light and fluffy - it ended up more like a cut up crepe. Oh, well, it still tasted great :-)

I poured some of the kefir into a small bowl and topped with muesli and blueberries.

I used a spoon and ate it like soup - very yummy!

And I had a side of orange slices:

I am really enjoying the low acidity of the Cara Cara oranges.

Gah, I always forget to include the drink. I enjoyed all of the above along with a mug of strong tea.

Happy Thursday everyone!
