Eggs- my favourite breakfast or snack. On weekdays, I usually have some yogurt and berries, or maybe soft boil eggs with salmon. On most days, a good breakfast will last me till lunch time.
Growing up, my mother would purchase my favourite breads to entice me to eat something before school starts. I went through a phase as well in baking our own bread. The smell of fresh bread in the morning is just amazing.
While I still do indulge in bread and muesli occasionally, I find that starting the day with protein and some fat seems to sit better with me. I’m not sure if it is my digestive system or just how my body seem to function. Certainly hubby is noticing a difference as well and for the time being, we are sticking to this routine.
Breakfast is still one of my favourite meals of the day. While I wouldn’t say I am a natural morning person, having a good big hot breakfast just seem to make it a bit better isn’t it? Especially a hot breakie on a cold morning.
On weekends, I like to make omelettes or scrambled eggs. In this version, I sautéed some prawns, chill and fish sauce. Somehow, it reminded me of the flavours of pad thai without the noodles. Come to think of it, this can also easily be a side dish for dinner or even stand alone for lunch.
