Vegan MoFo 2015, Day 1: My Breakfast

1 Rise and Shine! It’s MoFo time! Tell us about your breakfast.

Ever since the early days of my pregnancy with Lou Who, Mr Pine Nut has cooked breakfast almost every single morning. In those days, I was too tired to drag myself out of bed early enough, and after she was born, the routine had been well-established, and I am so thankful that I don’t have to think about that meal, too. (I do often make Sunday breakfast, which is generally more like a brunch.)

Sometimes the breakfasts he makes have been inedible. Like the time he sneaked some lentil flour in when I had a lentil aversion during the abovementioned pregnancy, thinking that I’d surely never notice. Nice try! 😉 But with few exceptions, he feeds us well. 🙂

Generally, he has an informal rotation of potatoes in varying forms, hot cereals, pancakes, and waffles. He doesn’t use recipes, so the breakfast table is always a testing centre for his experiments. But we are willing guinea pigs, and as I said, he does well.
This is what he made us this morning: a mixture of millet and oats (he grinds the whole grains with water in a blender before cooking). I topped mine with walnuts and dried cranberries, and had some cantaloupe afterwards.

  1. He sounds like a keeper! I make 95% of the breakfasts in our house, largely because I always wake up ravenous and would probably die of starvation if I had to wait for my partner to get into gear. I don’t think I’m as adventurous as your husband though!


    • I’m the opposite! I would sooner wait until later to eat. We have breakfast at 7am and I have a hard time making myself eat, and then I’m starving an hour later. But on Sundays or days when we eat breakfast closer to 9, I eat more and I stay full. Oh well. 🙂 Everyone else in the family likes the 7am time so I’m outnumbered!
