Breakfast is BY FAR my favorite meal of the day.  Last night, I literally stared at the ceiling imagining this breakfast (not because I was hungry, just because I plan ahead). πŸ™‚



I made English Muffin French Toast. That’s right, I dredged 1 and 1/2 English Muffins in egg batter and fried it up.  So delish!


Gah!! So good.  Worth all the fantasizing.


And a bowl of Chobani and fruit, a la Meghann.


Fruit included a banana and some grapes.


Non-Food Blogs


Obviously, I read a LOT of blogs (I probably read yours if you comment, I just don’t have an opportunity to do much commenting myself).   But in addition to the plethora of food blogs, I also read a lot of non-food blogs. 


My favorite non-food blogs:



Yes, I read a blog about dachshunds.  I can’t help it.  I love them.


What are your favorite non-food blogs?

    i’m hooked on reading running blogs and triathlon blogs. my newest obsession has been Amber, a canadian college student who is incredibly interesting.

  • Life Coach Jen April 7, 2009, 5:30 am

    In the blog world people have been “french toasting” all sorts of foods I would have never thought of! Awesome, It does remind me of a guy who told me to make peanut butter and jelly french toast one time, though.

    Other blogs,, I like Leslie Goldman’s blog on body image, goldman, and The Great Fitness Experiment too. Mostly food and body image blogs!

  • Krista April 7, 2009, 5:39 am

    Oh gosh, well I’m always checking “Cagewriter” which is a blog about MMA (mixed martial arts) because I’m a big UFC fan; then I look at my friends blogs who don’t write about food, haha.

  • Dori April 7, 2009, 6:05 am

    My friend’s friend is a spin teacher (she is coming to NY next week and I will be taking her classes, very excited!) and writes a great blog about spinning called

    I really like hearing the instructor’s perspective and learning more about my favorite workout!

  • Graze with Me April 7, 2009, 6:59 am

    The Skinny Website and Fitsugar are my favs. I guess they’re both body and/or health related but what can I say, my interests are closely linked.

  • tfh April 7, 2009, 7:02 am

    I could definitely eat brekkie three times a day, except then I wouldn’t get enough veggies…I will check out the blogs you mention. Even the dachshund one. πŸ™‚

    Yum! Your breakfast looks great! I will definitely check out some of the blogs you listed!!

  • Rose April 7, 2009, 7:26 am

    There is this blog by Edith Zimmerman that is food-based but absolutely ridiculous. She is basically my inspiration for anything I do.

    I also read the Mental Floss blog because my friend writes for it. I love quirky facts – total nerd here.

  • balanceisbest April 7, 2009, 7:31 am

    yummy breakfast!

    I don’t know if this counts as a blog, but it’s the popsuagr group of blogs. Fitsugar, yumsuagr, popsuagar, etc.

  • eatfabinnyc April 7, 2009, 8:44 am

  • Hallie April 7, 2009, 9:41 am

    What a great question! I love finding new blogs to read (although I already read so many!).

    I get my celeb updates from’s RSS feed, and I read Get Rich Slowly, a personal finance blog written by a regular guy (not some wealthy economist). I also like blogs about bloggin (woah…) like SkinnyMinnyMedia (by Roni of Roni’s Weigh).

  • Matt April 7, 2009, 10:45 am

    P.S. Delicious breakfast!

  • Andrea of Care to Eat April 7, 2009, 10:50 am

    Caitlin – if you read this, email me back your address. I have a little something that I bought for a friend years ago but never gave her and I just realized it would be perfect for you!
    One blog that I read is so raunchy and funny – I love it and you probably would too:

  • sarah April 7, 2009, 4:15 pm

    another plug for the underwear drawer. michelle is brilliant! she inspired me to start my (also somewhat medical . . . though hybrid running/food) blog.

    i also love frayed laces, many other running blogs, LMNOP, the chloe conspiracy, and happy hour sue.

  • Rachel April 7, 2009, 8:45 pm

    This is late in coming, but I was reading over all the suggestions and I had to laugh at Hallie who mentioned “some wealthy economist”… my husband is an economist and believe me, Hallie, we are not wealthy πŸ™‚

  • Kelvin April 8, 2009, 3:54 am
