What's your daily breakfast?


I start my day with:

Warm water and a squeezed lemon or lime.


After 30min or so, my fruit platter:

Frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, banana, apple, AVOCADO and sometimes I add melon.

I add yoghurt, honey and cinnamon.

Avocado is a very delicate fruit and timing is not so easy.


This keeps me going and after another hour or so:


2 eggs with some dark bread and coffee.


I am fine until late in the afternoon.

Two eggs benedict with duck eggs

Dark multi grain bread with cheese 

Butterzopf with jam or Nutella

At least that is one version of the breakfast I like.

What is Butterzopf?

Upon waking up I'll have a glass of warm water with a TBS of apple cider vinegar long before breakfast..... Sometimes switch off to a TBS lemon juice instead of ACV.....


Then....About an hour later....


Usually home made toast, eggs, bacon or sausage.... Garden fresh veggies, a soup, along with a fruit plate....Polished off with no fat milk...Sometimes it's jok / congee....A few times a month waffles, pancakes, or breakfast burritos find their way to the table ...

Some days that's the only meal I want....

I generally don't eat after 1400.... Intermittent fasting in my own way.....


I don't like coffee, but my wife likes it enough for both of us....

First thing on waking , hot ginger and lime juice in a mug. An hour or two later breakfast. Never the same thing twice in a row. So....something from my breakfast menu:


1 ) Full English breakfast ( as full as possible ) but no mushrooms. Home baked  bread and either      hashbrowns or bubble and squeek patties . Orange juice and coffee


( eggs any style , fried , poached , scrambled or as ham and cheese omelette )


2)  Porridge with banana . Toast and coffee


3) Mashed sardines on tomatoes on toast ....  coffee


4) Meuesli with banana. Toast and coffee


5) Bacon cheese and tomato croissant with coffee


6 )  Cornflakes with apple, banana and strawberries ( in season )  coffee , toast


7) Ky grata  ( two eggs in a dish with a bit of diced tomato , bacon, sausage  with toast and OJ

    coffee after.


8 )   breaky sandwich ( bacon egg and tomato with melted cheese between two doorstep slice)

     OJ and coffee


9 ) Shakshuka  . To my own recipe.  In a small pan , fried onions , diced potatoes , sliced bacon, sliced sausage , diced tomatoes and a little green or red pepper. Fry this up then make two wells and put in 2 eggs. Add a little water then cover with a lid until eggs poached. Grate cheese on top until melted. Share with wife over home made sesame toast.




10 )  anything else I can think of like kedgeree when I can get smoked fish.


Nothing much for lunch or supper.

As no one has done this already, I had better trot out the old line  - "a roll in bed with a little honey"


Truthfully though (and much more disappointing) , ginger tea and a fresh fruit salad.

How about optionally a little whipped cream or Nutella on the honey? ????

If it was Peggy yes.




But I wouldn't get in a car with her afterwards unless the windows were open.

Just difficult for avocado.

Imported ones crazy expensive. 

I use the local ones but timing is difficult. The last ones I had, even after 5 days, they were still hard.


I prefer the "Hass avocados"
