wake up to a bowl of Monday morning but, no ordinary Monday morning. One that will make Monday marvellous, make it magnificent, magical and moreover, worth jumping out of bed for! Sometimes it takes a little more to face Mondays but I promise you that if you have a delicious breakfast to prepare, that’s quick to throw together, that 6am wake up call won’t feel so bad after all.

I like to mix up my breakfasts so I don’t get bored and this was a little delight to put together, let alone eat. I went into Waitrose this weekend in search of some passion fruit and came out with figs, so I had to find something creative to do with this gorgeous fruit. My daily breakfast fuel usually consists of plain Greek yoghurt which fills me up til elevenses and as I had a bag of hazelnuts in the cupboard to replace my standard toasted almonds, whipping breakfast together in next to no time was pretty straightforward. 

So next time, when you don’t want to pull the covers from your face and the snooze button seems in easy reach, remember to embrace Mondays instead with a wholesome healthy breakfast.
