Now we've officially moved into Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere, you can see the nights are starting to cut in earlier and the mornings are darker for much later.
It's also the time when I advise people to eat warmer foods such as soups, stews, and casseroles.
Breakfasts should be alot more wholesome and warmer, no eating fruit and yoghurt for breakfast because it's too damp and cold. Some great ideas for breakfasts include, porridge which we all know about. Rice pudding with a bit of cinnamon or nutmeg... I know people question the rice pudding for breakfast, but homemade rice pudding for breakfast is really nice. In Asia, congee is very popular and its a kind of watery porridge made with rice. So it's very similar to rice pudding.
Bread and butter pudding with raisins, or dried apricots would be a nice breakfast choice. Even adding a few dark chocolate buttons if you are feeling particularly decadent, or your energy needs a boost. I can hear you saying, but these are normally deserts to be eaten after a meal? Usually they are, but who says you can't have them for breakfast instead... ?
Then we have the traditional breakfasts of course, eggs are great, mushrooms, beans, sardines, or toasted avocado on toast. Kippers are an excellent option, or Kedgeree is really nice. There are alot of options for breakfasts rather than the old cereals, fruit, or yoghurt.
