Breakfast Options (African Breakfast)

I am not a breakfast person, but when I do breakfast I make sure it is well worth it. Here are some of the things I go to for breakfast, I hope you get inspired.
This is Tapioca boiled on low heat for 25min in Milk and sugar, topped with some cashew nut.
Did you know; Tapioca pearls are are made from cassava
 This is Cubed Mango in soy milk N a dash of heat... it is super yum and super healthy. You can substitute your favorite fruit.
Here I have Multi Grain Cherrios and some fruits.
Last but not least, I have fried eggs, pancakes, banana and grapes finished with some fresh honey.

Oh I love the pancake and fruit! I'm going to have to try that soonest! Looks delish!!!

Coy~Introvert said...

I'd try the mango in soy milk...
When I found out tapioca pearls were made from cassava, my love for it increased. And it's funny how the eastern part of Nigeria, that's the igbos, they have a meal made from sliced boiled cassava eaten with peanuts, they call it tapioca....

I'm not a breakfast person but if I have a really hectic day ahead, my favourite breakfast is a big bowl of hot oatmeal - made with a dash of sugar, salt and brown sugar!

Cubed mango, soy milk and a dash of heat...gotta try that! Interesting combinations all round...though some seem more brunch than breakfast, going by the portions. Lol. Inspiring ideas, 9jaFOODie!

Breakfast is my favourite meal so i eat it without mercy!! Double helpings of the last plate. Add some sausages.

And i prefer my banana mashed and blended with the pancake mix :)

Blessings....
am considered a picky eater, i say i know what i like and what i don't. Tapioca never had, don't like the looks of it, had a slight taste once that confirmed my dislike. I don't do pancakes though i can make a mean pancake. Bananas, blueberries, eggs works for me. Shrimp and vegs yeah i can do that, don't do fufu though.

great preparations.
Have a blessed weekend.
