Tasty Reasons to Get out of Bed During a Cold Morning

You only need to look outside to see that the weather isn't as consistent as it used to be, and temperatures are starting to lean on the colder side of things. While this can often make it hard to get out of bed, Great Harvest of Newtonville has a few ideas to share with you on how to make tasty breakfast treats to fuel your day.

Smooth out Your Mornings with a Smoothie

Fruit and berries are one of the tastiest healthy foods around and can make for a great smoothie. On your way home from work the night before, head into your local market and pick up a selection of your favorite berries and some fresh yogurt. While you're still half asleep, add your berries, yogurt, and some milk into your blender and let the sound of it making a tasty treat wake you up. When it's finished, you've got yourself a delicious morning snack which your body will love.

Warm It up with Oats

A classic treat which everybody enjoys - oats are packed full of flavor and nutrients and are a great way to warm up your cold mornings. Best of all, they're easy to make! Simply bring some water to the boil, add a pinch of salt, pour in your favorite oats and cook for around 1-2 minutes. One of the best things about oats is that you can add any flavor you like once they're cooked. Enjoy bananas? Slice one up and place it on the top. Prefer your oats a little sweeter? Honey to the rescue!

French Toast

One of the best ways to cook bread in the morning , French Toast includes a number of nutrients which can help to keep your body working during the morning and well into the afternoon. Simply heat up a pan, put in a few slices of your favorite bread, and then pour a mixture of eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and milk over the top to soak the bread. Cook until browned to your liking and enjoy! Once they're on your plate, add a sprinkle of icing sugar or maple syrup and you're set!

Use Only the Best Bread in Brighton

The key to any delicious french toast recipe is to use tasty bread. The evening before, speak with Great Harvest of Newtonville at 617-928-1162 and ask which tasty bread they have ready for you to collect on your way home. Baked fresh in store every morning, Great Harvest of Newtonville can make sure any french toast recipe starts with the best ingredient - tasty and fresh bread!


If you feel like something a little more gourmet, pancakes are going to the tasty warm breakfast meal for you. Simply heat up a pan, pour in small amounts of your favorite pancake batter and cook until golden brown. Of course, don't forget to flip them to cook evenly on both sides. Similar to oats, pancakes make a great base for additional ingredients to add flavor. While sugar is always a favorite to sweeten them up, consider sliced strawberries and some whipped cream on the top, with a small drizzle of honey.


If you would prefer a mixture of different ingredients in an easy to cook way, then an omelet is going to be your best choice. Crack a couple of eggs into a bowl, add some grated cheese, diced ham, spinach, cut tomatoes, a pinch of salt and any other ingredients you would lie and mix it all up. Pour the mixture into a heated pan and cook in a way similar to a pancake. Don't forget to give it a flip when it's halfway done to make sure the egg mixture cooks all the way through.
