You probably guessed that I’m a big breakfast person. Truth be told, I never thought I will be a morning person too. I think it is not entirely by choice though. I love my bed and I certainly like to have that extra 5 minutes (if it ever do happen!). Since having Asher, and more so recently with work, waking up early = getting heaps of things completed before 9am. Take this morning for instance,
6am- all awake
6:30am- I’m scrambling eggs for the boys.
6:45am- everyone is eating breakfast OR dad is out of the house as he eats breakfast
(sometimes, hubby will be awake by 5:15am, and having his breakfast at 6am to get to work early)
7am- clean up, Asher gets dressed
Between 7-8am: Batch of pear and yogurt cakes in the oven, chickpeas are cooked, floors and toilets cleaned.
8-9am: Mummy and Asher play time, laundry get folded while I ring my dad on FaceTime.
On the rare occasion, like when hubby works from home, or a public holiday, I like to make us a hot breakfast that we don’t usually have. I love fritters and so with zucchini and haloumi on hand, I created some! Yummy, easy and good to be reheated for the next day (for when hubby needs to rush out of the door!)
- 4 tbsp coconut flour
- 1 medium zucchini grated
- 1 cup corn kernels (optional)
- 50 grams chopped haloumi
- 5 eggs
- pinch of bicarb
- chili salt
- Whisk it all up.
- Heat pan with coconut oil. Dollop fritters, turn when it bubbles. Serve with bacon!
