Breakfast tings

Breakfast tings

Here are a few easy and tasty idea for your breakfast.

I thought you might want to have the recipe for Lebneh, as it’s a perfect addition to some of these breakfast and that extra source of protein. If not, you can always just mix up some Greek yogurt, olive oil, lemon juice and few herbs when you’re doing your prep of a Sunday. It’ll last the week. –

Garnish is extra fresh flavour. Go the extra mile, it makes all the difference.

Some I’ll give you some options for things that may take more time n- you can either do them of a weekend, or ignore them. See how it goes.
