My 30 (or more!) days challenges

Breakfast – Day 37

ruflag

When I moved in to my current flat, I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t have a balcony, but it wasn’t an issue, as, I thought, the London weather wouldn’t allow me to use the balcony too much anyway!

Today the weather is absolutely splendid, and I realised that I could actually create a mock balcony if I open my three bay windows. And I’m indulging in an unbelievably huge breakfast: croissant, pain au chocolat, muesli with blueberries, assorted fruits, hard-boiled egg, yoghurt, jam, Nutella, orange juice, coffee – I definitely feel as if I’m at a luxury resort! Life is good 🙂 IMG_8801

Breakfast – Day 25

It is a beautiful morning today, so I am having a breakfast out at Café Rouge at the water side. The breakfast consists of champignons truffés (which essentially are poached eggs with mushrooms and truffle oil on a toasted muffin), some orange juice and a cup of americano coffee.

Breakfast – Day 18

It’s the second day in Brussels, and I’m having breakfast at the Thon hotel (that’s where I’m staying). As you can see, I decided to try pretty much everything! And everything tastes great!

Breakfast – Day 17

I’m in Brussels this weekend, so I’m having a breakfast out. The place, Tout Bon, is very similar to Le Pain Quotidien, and I’ve already posted the breakfast I had there, but never mind. Here I have a croissant and some bread with various spreads.

Breakfast – Day 7

ruflag

I love eating out, but for me this concept has always included lunch and dinner only. Somehow I could never understand why anyone would want to go out for breakfast – I guess, this is because I have always hated breakfasts and treated them merely as means to fill the tummy and not feel hungry and sick, rather than properly enjoying them.

One thing that I’m now learning through this challenge is that breakfasts can be truly enjoyable and indulgent. So on this rainy Saturday morning I’m having a delicious breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien, the Belgian bakery-café. What I have here is a pain au chocolat, a variety of breads with organic jams and dark chocolate spread, orange juice and Belgian-style hot chocolate. Lovely!

Breakfast – Day 5

I rarely eat hot breakfast on week days, but somehow feel for it today! I’m having crispy fried eggs with seed bread toasts, smoked salmon, slices of avocado and grapefruit, black coffee and orange juice.
