Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Or, if you are not Irish, then simply Happy Sunday! I just wanted to share my breakfast plate with all of you. I never really used to eat fruits before, but I have now developed a craving for it. Where a quick run to Mc Donald's would have satisfied a lazy Sunday breakfast craving prior to me being plant-based, I now look forward to reaching out for the fruits in the refrigerator. Even if it involves washing them, cutting them, and removing seeds, in this case --- papaya seeds. Whereas before, I would have found it much easier to get in my car, get in the drive-thru line (that would have probably extended all the way to the street), place my order, and head back home. But now, I would not even consider that as my first choice, in fact it does not even enter my mind anymore. And I figured, the time it takes to prep the fruits is just a fraction of the time it would have taken me to do the McDonald's run. And the best thing is I did it all while still in my jammies.
I was also debating whether to have toast for breakfast as my starch. Instead, I opted for teeny-weeny potatoes which I bought at Trader Joe's. I dry-roasted it, (that's right, no oil), and seasoned it with garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary, and a little bit of salt. I will show you how I do my no-oil roasted potatoes in my next YouTube Vlog post, so stay tuned for it.
I hope you enjoy the rest of this weekend, and may we all have a wonderful week ahead of us. :-) -GG-
