23 Easy & Healthy Breakfast recipes, including drinks & smoothies, savory egg-based meals, and finishing with a list of sweet (but still healthy!) dishes to round out the list. I’m a firm believer that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but when I’m rushing to get to work, I don’t usually have heaps of time to mess around in the kitchen whipping up a healthy and hearty . . .
Blueberry & Cashew Greek yogurt bowl
With the weather a bit dark and gloomy, and cold and rainy if you have London-like January weather, it’s very tempting to reach for a heavy and hearty breakfast. I’ve definitely been chowing down on full English breakfasts over the past few months (maybe a few too many…), but after all of the Christmas parties and holiday eating, I’m finding myself longing more and more for simple, fresh and light . . .
For the past few weeks I have been loving watching the leaves change into gorgeous reds and yellows. Not to mention, I can finally break out my comfy scarf collection, now that there’s a nice chill to the air. Last week I happened upon the Spitalfield Market in London and kind of went scarf crazy! They have the biggest, comfiest, prettiest scarves to choose from… I couldn’t resist. As the days . . .
Microwave scrambled eggs
This past month has been busier than busy, and my priorities have been less on food and more on…well, just getting things done. Now I’m the first person to not mind spending two hours on an elaborate morning breakfast on the weekend, whipping up pancakes, quiches, hash browns and whatever else my starving Saturday self is in the mood for. But sometimes… folks just don’t have time for that, and . . .
Copycat Starbucks Frappuccino
Since I moved to London a few months ago, I’ve been both blessed and cursed with the luxury of having a Starbucks right downstairs from my office. When I lived in Paris, the occasional treat of a grande white chocolate with whipped cream was just that… an occasional treat. If I was on my scooter, then it was a dangerous balancing act trying not to spill the drink precariously tucked at my feet. If . . .
My birthday…and chocolate cake
This Saturday was my (31st....) birthday, and it was fabutastic. Yes, new word, that's just how awesome it was. I had a few annoyances throughout and somehow managed to actually cry at one point, but all in all, it was one of my best birthdays yet! All of the credit goes to my husband, though, and he really hit a home run this year. Thanks to him, I have a few new London travel tips for you to . . .
Avocado & soft-boiled egg toasts
In my quest to eat bigger breakfasts that are not pasta, I’ve stumbled upon the best thing ever: avocado for breakfast. Even after ten years of living in Paris, I never really got into the whole croissant with jam or pain au chocolat in the morning. Sweets just aren’t my thing -- ever, really, but especially not in the morning. I’ve been surviving on big bowls of pasta to get me through the . . .
McMuffin copycat make-ahead breakfast sandwiches
Updated: July 12th 2015 I like to think of myself as an organized, structured and generally speaking a planner. Of course, the downside to that is that I also tend to take on way too much and then stress myself out about actually being able to finish everything on time. So I’ve had to come up with a few shortcuts to maximize my time and one tiny change has made a big difference in my daily . . .
Avocado & poached egg toasts
Since we’ve moved to London, our weekends have been a flurry of shopping excursions (hello, Ikea) and decorating and more shopping and well… not much else. So when I woke up this past Sunday knowing that my day would be full of more of the same, I knew I’d better have a good breakfast to get me through it all! As I was making this, I was half awake (because I hadn’t yet had my spinach apple . . .
