A Wednesday Morning

December 11, 2013

Toasting nuts and seeds is one of my most favourite ways to instantly take my breakfast bowl from nice to spectacular. And everyone deserves a bit of spectacular in their morning, don’t you think?…

Another way to make your morning spectacular is with freshly ground coffee beans. Now we’re talking.

Mum knew that Ben and I were in the market for a coffee grinder, and before long her superior op shopping skills summoned a splendidly functional grinder. Mum is famous for her finds. This one might just be my most favourite yet.

Today Ben and I were both home for breakfast, which was a real mid-week treat. I so love to share my Wednesday Breakfast Club eats with him.

After a morning jog we got to preparing our meal, Ben meditating over the coffee grinder and me toasting some nuts and seeds. Almonds, pepitas and sunflower seeds. Plus some untoasted, chopped brazil nuts. I handed Ben a brazil nut to try, knowing it to be a fairly foreign ingredient for him. “Aren’t they amazing?” I said. “They are the richest food source of selenium, you only need two a day and you’ve got your intake”. Nature is magical.

Ben retreated with his breakfast to his office and I curled up on the couch, reading some favourite blogs and enjoying my toasted bowl of goods and freshly ground coffee.

It wasn’t a fancy morning, but it was spectacular.


♥ Gippsland Dairy Smooth and Creamy Yoghurt – my treat yoghurt (but without the fruit in it, please, just yoghurt). I say “treat” because the second ingredient is sugar. As an every day variety I usually go for Farmers Union Greek Yoghurt.

    Looks like a spectacular morning indeed! I’m about to go to a co-op to stock up on granola ingredients (been eating eggs everyday, and your posts make me crave muesli!) & think I’ll get some pumpkin and sunflower seeds too 🙂 x

    Whilst I didn’t have it this morning, my fav at the moment is roasted macadamias with sliced banana, good natural yoghurt cinnamon and honey….. Drool….. I jump out of bed for this one 🙂

    Now that does sound spectacular Heidi! Have you thought of buying an Easiyo maker to make your own yoghurt? You can make it without any sugar and however you like it- yummos

    What a great find! Love a good op shop find. I’m in the market for a coffee grinder too. If your mum sees another… 😉

    Brekkie was a small bowl of natural yoghurt with blueberries, chia sees, almond meal and a little muesli. Lovely
