zero waste breakfast 2Breakfast today was something quick, but I did add a certain flamboyancy that was well received.

It consisted of yogurt, small pieces of apple, banana and orange (which all looks rather anaemic in the photo as Little Miss Green doesn’t do apple skin), topped it with oats. To make the oats more interesting I tossed them in melted butter for a few moments in a frying pan. I’m sure this topping has a name, but I don’t know what it is. A drizzle of honey on the top and breakfast was done.

Little Miss Green’s words (after looking at it, sighing heavily and complaining about how disgusting it looked) were “This is delicious Mummy!”

She is out for lunch again today, but Mr Green and I will be eating up some leftovers. I’ll be having fried rice with vegetable and lentils, much like yesterday. I’m not sure about Mr Green yet; I’ll probably give him the left over Sunday meat and potatoes. On a cold, foggy day like today; that should go down a treat 🙂

I’m not sure about dinner yet; Little Miss Green is out at one of her clubs, so it will depend on her appetite, but I think it will be curry for He and fish pie for She. The fish pie will keep if she isn’t that hungry.

    This looks yummy! Great idea about roasting the oats a bit.. Were they soaked and cooked before or not? (guessing not..?)
    I love lentils too.. best in a soup..
    Hope Mrs Green will get some lovely dinner too.. (wasn’t mentioned anywhere.. :))
    /I agree meat goes down well on cold foggy snowy rainy days!! 🙂 perhaps horrible for an ex-vegetarian to admit, lol – but so it is!!:) meat has lots of zinc, B12 and other stuff, so some of it can do a body good too!/

    Hi Layla, not soaked; just tossed in the butter from raw. This is how I make our fruit crumble toppings too – it adds more substance and taste to the topping.
    LMG was given cheese sandwiches for lunch apparently (and then came home with an empty crisp bag LOL!)
