Impromptu Breakfast

Impromptu Breakfast Fruit Bowl

This morning I could not think of anything to make for breakfast. I wasn't in the mood for one of my raw power puddings and I didn't want "just anything". I wanted something sweet with a little bit of a crunch. Here is what I started throwing together. I knew the focal point had to be my red skinned organic pear. It has been sitting on the counter top just begging me to find a recipe for it. Then I thought, dried apples and black mission figs with perhaps some raw honey drizzled on top and a splash of fresh squeezed lemon juice. Next I needed the crunch factor. Yesterday I dehydrated another batch of my sprouted buckwheat krispies. That would be my crunch! But wait, I had the fresh blueberries that I just bought last night. I had to throw some of those in too. And last but not least, my boxwood basil. So there you have it, my impromptu breakfast fruit bowl. Here is the recipe:

I look forward to learning new things and planning these fun outings for the children in our group. Our oldest two children are going to be my assistants. They are excited to have this opportunity as well. We look forward to a great school year!
