Break­fast Op­tions

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Feature -

For­get for one sec­ond how im­pos­si­bly dif­fi­cult it can be to get up at the crack of dawn and pad, slip­pers and bathrobe in tow, to the kitchen. Don’t think about the cold tile floors and dis­grun­tled grog­gi­ness. Set­tle your mind, in­stead, on the joy of watch­ing the sky slowly, but surely change its colours as the day be­gins. Imag­ine the smell of fresh hot cof­fee and warm, but­tery toast, the scene punc­tu­ated with the chirp of birds out­side the win­dow. Easy op­tions abound, too, so you won’t need to labour too hard, nor too long!

If time per­mits, go down the route of prep­ping ahead. Overnight oats are a great op­tion. Mix to­gether equal parts your favourite yo­gurt, milk, and rolled oats – not in­stant – and add a ta­ble­spoon of chia seeds. You can thin it out if de­sired be­fore eat­ing the next morn­ing with some fresh fruit, honey, or gra­nola.

If you’re fond of soft­boiled eggs first thing in the morn­ing, con­sider in­vest­ing in an egg steamer. They’re fairly in­ex­pen­sive and make it im­mensely easy for you to have the per­fect runny eggs. The night be­fore, take out your eggs and let them come to room tem­per­a­ture in the steamer. Fill your boiler with wa­ter. Come morn­ing, all you need do is bring the wa­ter to boil, pour in the in­di­cated amount, and wait.
