Dish of the Week: 1 fruit at breakfast

Strawberries and nut butter


It is a struggle to continue the quest but I’m determined to succeed, however much I’ve been adding fruit to pastries in the last few weeks.

You look at the fruit, and immediately feel a chill.  You think you want chocolate croissants and hot chocolate and want to cheat by eating apple tart.  Maybe tomorrow I’ll try with a baked apple.

thin toasts,

one with peanut butter,

and the other with cashew nut butter.

And a creamy double espresso

with a spark of cinnamon.


The little bowl seems to reflect January tightness, but I promise I have already been munching on them.  But no, no more to replace the ones gone.



Dish of the Week: 1 fruit at breakfast

Apricot jam, honey and kiwi


Continuing with my determination to eat at least a fruit every breakfast.  One week in and I already feel a flatter stomach.  I haven’t lost any weight, just backlog.

Today’s fruit is going to be a kiwi cut in half which I will eat with a coffee spoon, by carving in.  This reminds me of the first time I ate kiwi, back at the time when kiwis were properly exotic fruit just imported for the first time in Spanish supermarkets and not as cheap as nowadays.

It’s going to be accompanied by silky honey and the best apricot conserve in the market.  Very sweet, but with a tangy aftertaste.

A lovely way to start a sweet morning.
