The Brex Files

Pun in the title was kindly provided by Sam. The post could also be called ‘What I Ate For Breakfast Every Day For A Month’, or ‘A Month of Breakfast’ but that doesn’t sound as exciting does it?!

In fact, writing that sentence doesn’t sound very exciting but I thought it would be fun to show you what I start the day with in pictorial form.

I’m a breakfast obsessive, I think about it all the time. Before lunch I’m already thinking about the following days breakfast. I’m also an oat obsessive and love nothing more than a steaming hot bowl of oats. I had nothing against my oats, but an added benefit of recording my breakfast everyday was to make me try a little more variety and some savoury breakfasts, which is something I NEVER do!

So here they are my Brex Files for May.


If you like the look of them each row is in date order and I’ve broken it out at the bottom.
