Power Toast for a quick and healthy breakfast

Carlsbad, California

Hello Ladies,

The Man and I are enjoying our last few days in California, it’s hard to believe we’ve been here for almost two months already. There are many things I’ll miss: bike rides down the Pacific Coast, the view of the lagoon from the apartment, technicolor sunsets… and the Carlsbad Farmers’ Market.

I’ll miss the stands bursting with colorful locally grown produce, the incredible selection of hummus at the Baba Foods stand and the wonderful variety of other foods on offer. A few weeks ago I just about gave the Man an ulcer when I bought a small pot of local honey for $10. But let me tell you, it was worth every penny.

Power toast - breakfast recipe

The recipe for Power Toast I want to share with you makes very good use of this top shelf honey. I created the recipe a few months ago in Barcelona when I couldn’t find anything to  put on my morning toast. After scouring the pantry for odds and ends I came up with this filling, nutritious and delicious recipe. The nuts and seeds deliver great texture, while the honey offers a welcome sweet touch. A dusting of cinnamon takes it over the top. You can easily veganize this recipe by substituting agave nectar or maple syrup for the honey.

Springy Crab and Shrimp Rolls

Herblay, March 15, 2016

Hello everyone. Here in Herblay, we have had six consecutive gorgeous days! And more to come!! Nothing like big blue skies and a warming sun to keep spirits high before it’s officially spring. In anticipation of my favourite season, I thought I’d share this recipe for spring rolls with you. You can make them ahead and keep them in the fridge in plastic wrap or under a damp tea towel (a clean one please) for a few hours.

If you can get fresh crab all the better but if not, use good quality canned. This being one of my ‘flexible’ recipes you can adapt the ingredients to what’s available and what suits your mood. The result should be fresh and light. It is very important to have all your ingredients prepped and ready to assemble.
