Good Morning! They say if you eat a good breakfast you’re set for the day. It’s difficult for me to eat A LOT for breakfast, but I do try to make what I DO eat taste and look delicious. Start with a cup of fresh hot coffee (or, in my case, coffee substitute)…then pile rich frothy hot milk on top (made with my Nepresso Frother), pour into a giant cup and sprinkle with cinnamon. Eat it with a spoon, it’s so good. I like to take it into the sun room and sip and spoon while watching the birds outside my window having THEIR breakfast. It’s a sweet, quiet way to start the day, rather meditative.
Later in the morning it’s time for a more substantial breakfast.
Fresh fruit salad is always a favorite and the natural sugar in the fruit keeps blood levels from spiking and making me crazy. Cut up various fruits into bite size pieces and place in a bowl, drizzle lemon juice on top, add a touch of brown sugar and, if desired, raisins, and mix gently. The flavors will meld after a few minutes and the lemon keeps the fruit from turning brown. Spoon onto a pretty dish,”pretty” is key here, add a dollop of Greek style unsweetened yogurt (most fruit flavored yogurts are LOADED with sugar) and sprinkle more cinnamon on top. This will tide you over until lunch.
Let me know if you like this. It’s low calorie, filling and looks good enough to eat! Happy Breakfast!
