Awhile back I discovered my favorite breakfast of all time. Like ever. In. The. World. Everyone who has visited me since my breakfast discovery has fallen in love with some aspect of this breakfast. I'm telling you, it is like pillows of heaven dancing on your tongue. Before I discovered this breakfast, sometimes I would eat eggs, or toast, or peanut butter on toast...or whatever. But not now. Now I would never miss this breakfast because it is so damn good.
I discovered it last September when the Canadian and I, and a friend of ours headed out to Bath for a weekend. We stayed in a sweet little bed and breakfast that had, in addition to the usual 'full English' some yogurt and fresh fruit, which of course I ate because I've always loved yogurt and fruit.
A side note about yogurt in England. I love yogurt, and generally thought that the States had a decent selection. Uh. No. The first time I went into a Waitrose (think, better than HEB not quite as good as Central Market) I saw four, very long, aisles of yogurt. And I'm not talking strawberry and blueberry people, I'm talking 'champagne and rhubarb' flavors (for real, I tried that one.) If you can name a flavor, they have it. Yogurt is like seriously a *thing* here.
So back at the bed and breakfast they had out this honey flavored yogurt and I tried that along with some various fruits and some granola...and it was like this incredible flavor explosion happened in my mouth and my brain. I felt like I had won the taste lottery.
And then I became obsessed with it -- until I realized I could just buy all of the ingredients really easily shopping online. Oh, did you know I do my grocery shopping online? I do. It's awesome. I mean seriously, can you imagine schlepping 15 bottles of wine for two miles? Uh no. Online grocery delivery is the greatest invention ever.
So, here is the magic that is my yogurt concoction...and all of the ingredients come in neat little packages pictured below, delivered weekly to my doorstep.
I know I'm going on and on about it, but I look forward to this breakfast almost as much as coffee. So there you have it. My full English breakfast not a big fry up, but a bunch of healthy crap.
What do you eat for breakfast...or, if you're an expat, what have you discovered that you obsess over eating?
