We spend so much time cooking amazing breakfasts for our guests, I was curious what most of us eat. My first year as an innkeeper I gained so much weight! I was eating all that yummy stuff. Couldn't do that anymore.

This morning I made a smoothie with leftover fruit from yesterday and threw in fresh papaya.

whole wheat toast with peanut butter and honey. Oh, and coffee, of course. 4 guests for brekkie and only one drinks coffee, just one cup, so there was some left for me, too.

My current guest is a coffee hound and a band member who stays here (she has been demoted to family status) band nights is also a coffee hound. I made my 24 cup pot with Malawi coffee today. I got 2 cups and it went dry!!!

Same thing every morning because it holds us until lunch...oatmeal, prunes, nuts, blueberries and pear with warm milk poured over the top.  No actual cooking.  DH varies it up a bit with the fruit, depending on what is in season but even when we travel we aim for this breakfast.  All stops are out when it comes to dinner though. Anything goes!

I used to think that a bowl of cereal was a great breakfast because it was low fat.  Now, I'm avoiding it like crazy because of all the carbs & sugar.  Lately, I've been doing omelets for myself.  Mixed bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, black forest ham and swiss cheese.  Yum!

Power bar and fruit. Usually yogurt and fruit.

I made myself a helping from our "Do It Yourself Muesli" shelf this morning, adding fresh Scottish strawberries, they're at their best at the moment.

Yesterday I used what was left of the pancake batter to make to pancakes, sandwiched with strawberries and drenched in maple syrup.

Chia pudding with berries and walnuts. I am loving this stuff and considering using it in a fruit course for guests, perhaps just a bit layered in a fruit parfait instead of yogurt. I can definitely see using it for vegan guests.

Very interesting! I had to google it to see what it was. I've never used chia seeds for anything except for chia pets! wink

I know! Ch-ch-ch-chia...

I heard about chia seeds as the latest health food trend and saw recipes and pics of the pudding for a while before I finally tried it. Surprised myself by liking it!

Easy peasy: Put 2 1/2 - 3 tablespoons seeds in a 250ml jam jar; add some kind of milk (dairy, almond, etc) to about 3/4 full; screw the lid on tight and shake to mix. Refrigerate overnight to let it thicken. In the morning, add nuts, fruit, or sweeten to taste.

Oh, i get weak-kneed over Pop Tarts. *sigh*  I sometimes go to the aisle in the store and fawn over them.  Can't buy them.  No way.  It's like Lay's potato chips - you can't eat just one.  Mega weakness!

When my UK guests see the box of Yorkshire tea I tell them I traded a lovely innkeeper in England for a box of Pop Tarts. They goggle.

Well, it's the truth. Worst part... I had a muffin on the counter that I should have had... I bought it on Saturday and it's still there.

Leftover Anadama bread with greek yogurt.   My favorite.

I bring the leftover muffins and coffee cakes to work (I work in an office) and they are gone in minutes.  

On the weekends, I serve muffins, yogurt and fruit and then make myself eggs and toast.   Smiling
