Breakfast is one of my favourite meals of the day. Most important for me is a really good cup of coffee – I like an Americano strong and hot, no milk or sugar. It’s not enough on its own though – I need something else to start the day well and on a busy work day I love to grab a quick bowl of granola topped with my favourite greek style natural yoghurt and some fruit compote. Plums are great at this time of the year or bluberries which I have in the freezer from summer.
