What's for breakfast these days?

My favorite breakfast by far is mixing 2% and 0% Fage plain yogurt with my own fruit - pineapple and/or berries and chia seeds or sometimes I throw Kashi 7-grain nuggets on top for crunch.
If I want something really special, I will cook down the berries to make kind of a jam (NO sugar added though) and mix that in. So good!

What are you giving up?

While it is not for Lent, it coincides as my sister is getting married in 4 weeks. I have given up anything with added sugar (alcohol does NOT count) and dairy (cheese, cream, milk - NOT my greek yogurt). I have drastically reduced consumption of these items since January and while it has been hard, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. No doubt I will be enjoying a big piece of cake however the night of the wedding :)
