Welcome to this month’s recipe featuring a collection of breakfast recipes developed by my husband Olaf who doesn’t like to spend any more than 5 minutes in the morning making breakfast.  So, rest assured, they are very easy, very quick and nutritious and not only for blokes of course!  I really like how he makes sure he has some protein and good essential fats in each of the meals and a little bit of green!
