breakfast of champions


summer is sadly coming to an end and i'm headed back to work next tuesday after two glorious months off. so this morning as i fixed my breakfast, i realized that in a few days i probably won't have time to linger over the lovely meal i've been making for myself for most of the summer.

this breakfast has been such a treat for me over the last couple of months. it usually contained some variation of the following:
* 10-12 buttered crackers with brie
* a handful of raw almonds
* a few dried apricots (i like the organic kind but it takes awhile to get used to that rusty brown colour instead of the bright orange you typically find)
* organic vanilla yogurt with seasonal fruits mixed in (today it was some diced peach, blueberries, and strawberries*...all from ontario)

mmmm...

*believe it or not, the strawberries are from ontario even though strawberry season is kind of over. these are apparently called "everbearing strawberries" or so the friendly farmer from the market tells me. i think i was able to buy them well into september last year!

That's a nice breakfast! This is what Buffy the Vaampire Slayer says about breakfast:

"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It's unbelievably important. You should eat breakfast at least three times a day."

Have you ever tried the Liberte coconut yogurt? It tastes almost like dessert - it is so creamy and delicious!! I just tried it for the first time today and it quickly became my best friend :)
