Breakfast in France
My mom and I are totally enamored with France. When we were there visiting close friends during the summer I turned 16 (what a Sweet Sixteen gift!!!), we truly had a blast. We self-toured all over Paris and borrowed our friends’ car and took a 4 day road trip into northern and northwestern France visiting the beaches of Normandy , Mont-Saint-Michel and Trouville-sur-Mer, driving past countless sunflower fields and down breathtaking poplar-lined country roads, eating at little bistros along the way, and just winging it in “hotels” with no hot water. It was the experience of a lifetime and reminds me that traveling with my mom is so much fun. So when she was up to visit Kyle and I a few weeks back, I decided to set out a throwback breakfast to our days spent en France.
As I’ve mentioned before, the French typically eat light for breakfast and what I decided to serve my mom is no exception:
- Fat free vanilla yogurt parfait with fresh peaches and Kashi Go-Lean Crunch
- Warm croissants and French gourmet jelly (which you can find in your grocery store!) on the side.
- For the parfait, simply layer the yogurt, diced peaches and Go-Lean Crunch (or you could also use your favorite granola) – its really as easy at that!!
- You can find croissants in most supermarket bakeries, regular bakeries or even in wholesale stores like BJs or Costco. They are still fabulous a day old provided they are kept in a well-sealed container – warm them up in the oven for a few minutes on 400 degrees F.
