Breakfast

DSC01917

I grew a fondness for breakfast during my college years. Not only was it the cheapest meal to go out for but sometimes 6:30 a.m. was the only time of day we could all get together to celebrate a birthday or a friend passing through on a visit. I know. But those are some of my fondest memories.

These days I try to have something light and simple but yummy whether I’m headed to work or around the house. Often, I’ll have any one of the following adjusting ingredients and quantity accordingly (note: I’ve excluded the christmas cookie breakfast).

SWEET QUINOA BOWL

Quinoa / maple syrup / almond milk / almonds (any nut) / berries (optional)

ALMOND AND KALE SMOOTHIE (sounds like a bummer, but it’s not)

1 cup kale / 1 cup unsweetened almond milk / 1 tablespoon almond butter / 2 dates / 1 tablespoon coconut oil. Blitz in a blender until smooth (adapted from GP’s Its All Good)

GREEK YOGURT WITH BERRIES

Greek yogurt (any flavor) / frozen berries (warmed in the microwave but not hot) / honey

BERRIES WITH MINT

Frozen berries (thawed) / honey / mint

And of course, some comfort breakfasts for the weekend company or tea with girlfriends.
