The Most Important Meal of the Day
Friends, I am so excited to start a food blogging 6 part mini-series!
Here's the scoop: I eat about 6 times a day (breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack, dinner, dessert) and I eat like a lady (in small amounts and I'm obnoxiously slow). I tend to be pretty passionate about... a lot of things, acutally. But food and feeding times are up there! So I thought I would give you a little profile of the ideal food day in the life of Christine.
Today is breakfast! I woke up at an ungodly hour (Turkey still has a hold on my sleeping patterns) so naturally I was starved. Here's my usual standard for any meal or substantial snack: starch, protein, produce. As long as those three things are in one's meal, it will probably carry one for at least a few hours. Unfortunately I did not follow the rules this morning as I forgot to put starch in my breakfast (I think it's because it was 6am and I wasn't thinking straight). However, I did manage to put together a tasty meal for breaking the fast of a sleepy night.
Profiled in the picture above is a bowl of Greek yogurt (well, some may call it Turkish yogurt but I personally think the Greeks do it best) with homegrown and fresh sliced peaches drizzled in honey. Since my favorite two condiments in the world are sour cream and cream cheese, nonfat Greek yogurt is like an excuse for me to eat sour cream by the spoonful! And of course, a lavish breakfast (though this particular one isn't overly lavish) must come with a perfectly brewed cup of coffee. It's strong with a hint of vanilla creamer. Bon.
Next up is my mid-morning snack... oh you're gonna love it! So what did you have for breakfast today?
