Getting a large amount of coffee into one's body in the morning is of the utmost importance, which is why -- according to Rhoda Boone of Epicurious -- you should be having your morning coffee and eating it too.

In addition to providing that little extra hit of caffeine, coffee just tastes good when stirred and cooked into a variety of breakfast foods. Click the link below to read all of the delicious ways Boone worked java into her morning meal, but these are my personal favourites:
- In Yogurt: Stir a little cold brew (or cold, regular coffee) into Greek yogurt and top with berries and yogurt.
- Overnight Chia Pudding: Boone combined 1/2 cup cold brew coffee, 1/4 cup coconut milk beverage, 3 tbsp. chia seeds and 2 tbsp. maple syrup for a tasty, wholesome, energy-packed AM treat.
- Redeye Gravy: This coffee-based gravy is super easy to make, and provides a nice, somewhat bitter counter flavour to salty breakfast ham.
Of course, every single one of these coffee-packed meals should be consumed with a cup of coffee, because the whole point is to get more coffee into your life, so don't forget to brew a little extra.
