IMG 6453 300x300 - Cheesecake for BreakfastThis recipe was originally inspired by a dip recipe over on Running with Spoons that I basically lost it over. A few minor tweaks and I felt totally justified eating it by the bowl. This high-protein, high-fiber recipe has become one of my go-to desk breakfasts. All you have to do is make the day (or two) before in a portable container so you can enjoy it at your convenience. Oh, and the best part? Totally tastes like cheesecake.
