Breakfast Sushi

breakfast sushi | my skinny sweet tooth

Sushi isn’t just for lunch or dinner. Granted, you won’t find any fish or wasabi here. I’m talking about replacing all those savory elements with fruit and all good things to start your day off right. I’m also getting rid of the rice and replacing that with a low carb, high fiber tortilla. Basically, this is a no-fuss breakfast option to help pull you out of the typical cereal and bran muffin rut. Have your kiddos customize their own “roll”. They’ll have fun with it, too! Who wouldn’t love eating with chopsticks for breakfast?

Listed below are just two of my sushi creations, but the possibilities are endless. As I have more combinations, I’ll update this post 🙂 But go for it! Use what you have on hand and get creative!

Making your own candy can be a cinch and healthier, too! Reese cups are one of my favorites and probably once of the easiest to mock. Very few ingredients (3 to be exact) help with throwing these together quickly. 6 healthier Reese Cups coming right up!

apple ring samoas (with peanut butter)

apple ring samoas | my skinny sweet tooth

This is a slight naughtier version of my heathy apple rings. Although both equally delicious, sometimes that little devil on the shoulder shouts a lot louder than the good guy. Gosh, he’s so annoying. But as my journey gets farther and farther along, that voice is becoming distant. It seems there’s a new guy in the mix: the “best of both worlds” guy. I like him. We get along quite well 😉

So as I’m staring at my husbands Girl Scout cookie stash (the samoas!), the “best of both worlds” guy and I come up with this. It’s got the crunch of a cookie, and classic taste of a samoa. (I even added peanut butter! oh my!) However, these are a little messier, but that’s just more fun 🙂 Here’s another break down for you!

Umm … yes. Plus, the apple rings are so much bigger. And 99% of the time, bigger is better. The other 1% are my hips; definitely bigger is not better here …
