How Traveling Through Scandinavia Changed the Way I Eat Breakfast — Make Mornings Better

While traveling through Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway last summer on my honeymoon, I fell in love with breakfast. This was definitely not the breakfast I knew back home in the South, which consisted of hearty dishes like fried chicken and waffles, biscuits smothered in sausage gravy, and Bloody Marys garnished with bacon and every pickled vegetable under the sun. In Scandinavia I was enamored of the lighter, healthier fare — cozy bowls of porridge, smörgås, and gravlax.

That kind of work requires a good breakfast — one that is filling, nutritious, and wholesome, but also tastes good. Here are some breakfast ideas from teachers of all grades and areas of study. And yes, it's more than just a shiny red apple.
