Guest Post: New job - New Breakfasts!
It's Juanita here! I'm a newbie lifestyle blogger from London who is partial to cake and a burger every now and then - and I am super grateful to Bex for letting me guest post on her blog, to get in some practice! :)
So I have recently started a new job, working in Central London, and I am surrounded by food, and most importantly… a lot of food. Now there’s a new tea shop opening down the road and I’m counting down the days until I can start having a good cuppa to accompany my cakes :)
When I was younger I thought about food differently - the only food really on my mind was chocolate and ice cream; I know I question how my teeth remained in my head too. I’m still not sure about that. As I have gotten older, these two things have started to give me heartburn so you can imagine my disappointment as I have started to change my lifestyle - starting to learn to cook and choose healthier options.
By making these small changes, I don't have to worry about missing out too much and I have found alternatives and a new passion for breakfast, (yep, breakfast!). I now interchange breakfasts over the week and have narrowed it down to three different types:
The Simple Breakfast
This includes a cup of Strawberry and Orange Tea with Lemon drizzle cake, or maybe a pastry. Quick and simple, yet delicious and also can be taken out. I still have to have something sweet!
I know not everyone loves cake, but I still have to say, ‘Who doesn’t love cake?!’
The ‘I’ve got a few extra minutes to spare Breakfast'
This one can reach anything from porridge or toast and right down to anything that involves eggs. For me it’s scrambled eggs on toast. I rarely see these luxurious ‘few minutes to spare breakfasts’, as I’m
forever running slightly late (or out of bread, or out of eggs) but when I do it’s happy days.
The full shebang
I cannot deny that my first and foremost love is for a cooked breakfast. I’ll take English or American; fry-ups or pancakes. (I say fry-up but there’s nothing actually fried; it’s all just pushed into the oven and left for about half an hour and only the egg is fried). I also use fry-light to keep fat and calories down. As long as it’s hot and there’s lots of it I’m happy. I’ve even found a quaint chain that does variations of both – The Breakfast Club. So if you’re in London check them out, and I hear they’re opening outside of London too! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!
So - what’s your favourite breakfast? I'd love to find out in the comments.
Thanks for reading. If you'd like to see more of me then head over to my blog: LDN Girl.
