kNight & Day

Breakfast for the loved one..

You know, there is always bad and good about waking up early. I am a morning person, and now I am proud of it! I had a time in my life when I used to think that it is so bad to wake up early and then fall asleep around midnight. My hubby is complete opposite of me – he is totally Owl. Night is his time! His metabolism is raving after sunset! He loves to eat at night, he loves to play his PS3 games all night long, watch TV or just read news. His words: “I feel that if I sleep all night – I am wasting my time”. So I used to think that I am a terrible “time waster”, since my body is just simply shutting down at night. So I was fighting it and over and over. It did not do any good of course: I felt very tired during the day, was not getting enough sleep, was hungry all time (since my body was trying to compensate lack of sleep) and after all my body stil was getting that sneak picked day of the week when was falling asleep at 10 pm and waking up at 7 or so.
Now, I accepted it! I love my mornings and love to see early sun and hear birds in a quite garden praise the house. I love to feel myself rested and wake up with a smile. I perfectly set routine – sleep at 12.30 am and wake up at 8 am. I am at my most productiveness in the morning hours.
Now I enjoy mornings having enough time to get myself ready, make a wholesome breakfast, love my yoga in the morning – it charging my metabolism for store day!
How we manage with Mr.? Well it is very fair trade, I would say, he likes me being responsible for his awakening every morning, he likes to have his fresh cup of cappuccino waiting for him on the table. And me, I like him to come with me to the bedroom at my sleeping time and hug me till I fall asleep, I like to make breakfast for him and I love to see him being happy about his last night achievements in his PS3 game. Tis is how it works and we are both happy !

Now, would love to share with you this morning breakfast my loved one Mr. R, it is just a simple pancake, but smells like a apple pie. Inspired and Recipe adapted from Eat Learn Discover , who obviously adapted it from here

Spread some butter over two medium pie pans, added dices of 1 apple (skinned) and sprinkled with some cinnamon and sugar. Beat 2 eggs with 2 tbsp of brown sugar, added 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1/2 cup of all purpose flour mixed with 1/8 tsp of baking powder. Poured bater over apples and placed few cubes of butter on top. Baked in preheated to 190C oven for 20 minutes. before serving it – i drizzled some Organic Maple syrup and decorated with whipped cream (Mr. R loves both of them).

I assumed I could make this recipe more up to my diet, but it was breakfast for Mr.R and he loves “real food”. He finished it all and said he loved it.

I had fro-Yo for breakfast with raw macadamia nuts and snacked on gluten free corn bread from Organic Store (just craving corn lately).

Are you night or morning person? And your loved one? And how do you manage with it?

  2. That looks really yummy. Wonder if it works with buckwheat flour….or quinoa flour. Got a bag the other day and don’t know what to do with it. Tried muffins yesterday which were a disaster.

    • Thanks Anja. It is really tasty – try it and you can create any topping you like. I think you might try with buckwheat flour but then you will need it to add guar gum or similar for stickiness I guess. But then the taste will be more of a buckwheat bread I think. Tell me if you try it out – interested to know.
