3 Healthy and Easy Breakfasts to Try While Working From Home
Yogurt, smoothie bowls and oatmeal to kick-start your day.
Breakfast is a very important meal to kickstart the day, but it is one that is often skipped or overlooked because mornings can be stressful and hectic, and nobody has time to make a meal at 7:30 in the morning. Now, those of us who can are working from home and self-isolating while we try to contain the spread of the coronavirus, and our routines are changing whether we want them to or not.
To get you energized and ready for a day of working from home (read: sitting on the couch with your laptop in your knee), we’ve put together three easy and healthy breakfasts you can throw together in a matter of minutes. None of the recipes require many ingredients, so don’t worry about having to battle your way through the grocery store for some eggs.

엄마가 올라오셨다. 미술 학원을 32년 동안 운영하면서 두 달 가까이 쉬어본 건 처음이라며 백수(?)가 된 기념으로 여유로운 마음으로 두 아들의 집을 방문한 것이다. 이틀 전부터 비상이 걸려 대청소를 시작했지만, 엄마 손이 닿은 어떤 것이든 내가 한 것보다 훨씬 나아졌다. 냉장고는 가득 채워졌고 세라믹 세숫대야는 윤기를 되찾았다. 무엇보다 지갑이 두둑해졌다. 요즘 내가 작업하고 있는 것들을 보고 칭찬도 아끼지 않으셨고 당신의 견해도 꼭 말씀해 주셨다. 엄마를 닮아 워낙 자기 주관이 뚜렷해서 누가 머라 한들 내가 그리고 싶은 대로 그리겠지만 어머니와 건강한 대화를 한 것 같아서 느낌이 좋다. 혼자서 해먹던 디저트도 해드렸더니 너무 좋아하셨다. 그래도 혼자 사는 작은아들이 걱정이셨는지 부산에서 음식 재료들을 모두 가져오셔서 집 밥 같은 집 밥을 먹이신다. 기차역까지 엄마와 둘이 걷던 길. 돌아오는 발걸음마저 가벼웠다.
