Happy Friday! I’m no nutritionist, but this week’s links seem to be very food oriented—healthy food that is. After years of feeling guilty of not eating a proper breakfast every morning, I finally nailed my morning routine.
Each morning I get out of the house for a latte. I can’t function without it. Besides, it forces me to get dressed and out of the house when I’m working from home. But a latte does not a breakfast make.
I know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but here’s the thing: I’m never hungry before noon! Over the years I forced myself to chow down cereal, yoghurt, eggs, avocado toast… I tried everything! And hated every second of it.
Recently, I started making a cup of warm water with lemon first thing when I wake up. It’s supposedly great for the metabolism and it also forces me to sit down and take a moment to read the news before starting the day.
Then, the other day at my local gourmet grocer, I spotted a homemade green juice that wasn’t exorbitantly priced. I had always disliked the gooey green concoctions, but I was curious to give this one a try. Unlike other green juices, this one had a splash of orange juice and pineapple in it, so I figured it wouldn’t taste like I was chewing on spinach. You guys, it was so delicious. I barely tasted the greens (even though it’s loaded with spinach, celery, kale and all those good things). I now have one after my coffee every morning.
Ok, so I’m still on a liquid morning diet, but between warm water with lemon, a latte and a tall glass of green juice, I think I’m finally inching closer to a balanced breakfast. Thoughts? What’s your breakfast routine?

Not exactly a sale, but Serena & Lily’s Fall Collection is the bomb.com. I’m loving their Beaumont bedding, this Alpaca throw, the Carson bed (!!!), the Calvin bed, this denim and suede rug, this rattan mirror and their entire collection of resin entertaining essentials. They also launched new French pleats linen window panels and a line of grasscloth wallpapers! What?!
