Breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day. I like to take my time, eat my food slowly, sip my coffee and I will get up 30 minutes earlier if needed, so I can start the day like this.
However, my breakfast is not typical of the French, where most have bread with butter and jam, and a big bowl of tea or coffee. I don’t eat much bread, and I have found that eating protein agrees with my system much more, holding me over until lunch. So here is a peak into some of my typical breakfast options.
- Eggs. Scrambled. In an omelet. Quiche. Hard boiled. I’ll take them in any form as long as the yolk is cooked!
2. Yogurt. I usually have it with half a mashed banana. Once in a while I will add some nuts on top because I like anything crunchy.
3. Muffins. There are a ton of healthy recipes out there. I need to make them because you rarely find muffins in France, and if you do they are very industrial / processed.
4. Pancakes. I have 3 or 4 different recipes made with coconut flour or almond flour. I always have them with almond butter. Another great option that holds me over until lunch. I make a huge batch and freeze them.
Eggs, pancakes, muffins….that is definitely my American influence. NO ONE in France eats eggs for breakfast.
The only thing I miss from the US is bagels and English muffins…. neither of which you can find here that I would consider even close to decent.
What is your go to breakfast ?
