I have fallen a little behind with my post schedule, this was last Sunday, it was a rainy morning in Balmoral at the Boathouse Cafe…remember when I danced in the rain? I was dancing because I was so happy after eating that breakfast, the best avocado on toast I have ever eaten (it came along with goat’s cheese curd & juicy cherry tomatoes…I want more!) & the most photogenic fruit salad of all time.
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, I’ve said it many times before but it’s a fact, and facts need to be told. Breakfast is the king of all meals. It is scientifically proven that all calories ingested at breakfast will be burnt throughout the day. Take notes my friends.
Breakfast has no rules, whether you have a sweet tooth, or you’re more of a full-english kinda person, or maybe you like a bit of both, the best of both worlds I say.. you make your own rules. Breakfast will set the mood for the rest of the day, when was the last time you woke up 15 minutes early to sit down quietly in the morning light with a cup of something warm & a bowl of something delicious?
Pancakes oozing in golden syrup, bowls of fresh berries with scoops of fresh cream, one perfectly poached egg along some decadent smoked salmon, a nutty bowl of freshly cooked oatmeal drizzled with maple syrup & a handful of blueberries, waffles when you have time on your hands, crispy bacon with just about anything, buttery toast with homemade raspberry jam…the creativity is endless!
I have never been, and probably never will be, a morning person – unless breakfast is involved. There’s nothing better than preparing yourself something decadent & enjoying it somewhere comfortable & beautiful. Maybe on a crisp summer morning sitting on the patio in the morning light listening to the world slowly waking up, or in the midst of winter back in your warm bed between two fluffy pillows, some peaceful music playing in the background & a candle flickering by your side. But when breakfast is shared it takes a whole new dimension, add a lover next to you in that warm bed or a couple of friends wrapped in blankets on that patio…
Breakfast is the unicorn of all meals, it is purely magical.
