Let's talk about breakfast

The other day a couple of you asked me about the breakfast in one of the pictures and I thought, I should write a little post about my favourite breakfast. I eat it since a year almost every day and can't get enough of it : )

Well, I used to be a muesli person for a long long time - and still love it, but as it wasn't always so great for my stomach I decided to try a couple of new things and one of them was the great budwig breakfast recipe. It is supposed to be very healthy for you and also tastes really good - quiet a good combination I think.

How to make it.
3 table spoons (150g) quark (sort of a cottage cheese), or yoghurt, add 1-2 table spoons flaxseed oil and stir it up really well (that is the important part) until you cannot see any more oil and the yoghurt looks quiet creamy. After that add two table spoons freshly ground flaxseed.

You can also add a spoon of honey to sweeten it or nuts and fruits if you want it a bit more exciting. A couple of months ago, I poached pears in freshly squeezed orange juice with prunes and a cinnamon stick. That was also very delicious.

Tips.
Keep the flaxseed oil dark in its container and in the fridge. Also grind the flaxseed every day fresh to avoid that it get rancid.

What do you eat for breakfast?

Give it a try, it is addictive!

Erm, sorry to mention this, but hasn't flaxseed a very laxative effect? If I'm wrong, I'll sure try your recipe!

hallo Maria, ich brauche dringend ein bisschen abwechslung im morgendlichen muesli, dein rezept werd ich mal versuchen. sehr schoene bilder, wie immer! liebe gruesse!

jana said...

bin dem öl auch verfallen, hab ich dir ja schon erzählt. ich müsste mir allerdings irgendeinen apparat zulegen, um die samen frisch zu mahlen...womit machst du das denn?
ich wünsch dir ein schönes sonniges sonntagsfrühstück :)

máni said...

wow, this looks so good, even if i cannot really imagine what it tastes like. i will have to give it a try! i am a muesli person and something new would be nice. i tried oatmeal but don't feel like cooking every morning.

wonderful mouthwatering photos!! :)

Rieke said...

sind 3 esslöffel quark bzw. joghurt mit öl und leinsamen wirklich alles, was du morgens brauchst um kraft zu tanken? ich hätte nach einr halben stunde schon wieder hunger... die bilder sehen jedenfalls lecker aus :)

celine said...

ooh, this looks quite yummy. i'll have to give it a try!

Chelsea said...

Where, if at all, do you buy your quark Maria? I've bought it from Cyrils Deli (Haymarket in Sydney) & it was just not the same as the smooth quark from Deutschland :-(

@Annemall: I know flaxseed is supposed to be laxative, but I have never experienced it..I guess I believed into all the great stuff it also does more :)
@Rieke: Das sind 3 recht große Löffel....und mit Obst und so reicht mir das echt...aber du kannst natürlich auch gerne mehr mischen..
@Chelsea: here in Sydney I make it with the great Greek Yoghurt...but I saw Quark at Harris Farms, but for 7 Dollars, which means I just have it here for Christmas or on my birthday with Quark :)

Trula said...

Thank you. I'd like to give it try. I normally have my muesli (with the flaxseeds still intact) with yoghurt and fruit. People here say, of course, typically German.

Kim said...

i tried it - it is delicious :)

fiori.viola said...

Oh my god! It's really addictive! I have the same breakfast (with soya yogurt, because in Italy we haven't quark - that I love!) and I can't get enough!!! :)

kristina - no penny for them said...

ich weiß, die frage ist schon gestellt worden - aber womit mahlst du denn leinsamen?

maja said...

instant coffee and a slice of hard bread with butter and cheese. not very inspiring, but quick and good. my boyfriend is more into yoghurt and seeds and honey and all that.

schorlemädchen said...

Kristina, ich mahle den Leinsamen mit einer elektrischen Gewürzmühle...du kannst aber auch nach einer manuellen Mohnmühle Ausschau halten, zum Beispiel hier http://www.getreidemuehlen.de/Handmuehle-Handgetreidemuehlen/Mohnmuehle-Jupiter/6021.html

Rieke said...

Danke für den Tipp, es schmeckt großartigt!!
Man kann den Leinsamen übrigens auch super mit dem Zauberstab schroten...
Was waren denn die Zutaten auf Bild 6 (von oben)? Sieht aus wie Ahornsirup, sehr lecker jedenfalls :)

I just started to eat a healthy "wholemeal" muesli breakfast last week, which involves soaking freshly ground rye and wheat over night and then adding lemon juice, cream and ground nuts. And fruits. Lots of fruit.
Eating healthy can be so yummy at times :-)
Thanks for sharing your breakfast!

Mmm... this post has made me hungry! Reminds me a bit of the breakfast I posted not too long ago on my blog. Too often people eat boring and not all that healthy of breakfasts so it's nice to see all these fruits!

fast times in münchen. said...

This looks sehr lecker. Thanks for the recipe. I've discovered quark since living here and it's love for me! Though, I find it hard to buy flaxseed. i used to use the flakes in Oz which kinda looked a little like fish food, ha.

I've have been lusting after Catherinehohm wares for years but just can't afford them :( Love your bowl.

leila said...

poached pears in freshly squeezed orange juice, with a cinnamon stick sounds so good!

ANNA said...

schorlemädchen said...

Thanks everyone for your nice comments, I hope I could give you some inspiration for a nice new breakfast...
@Rieke, das ist kein Ahornsirup, sondern in O-Saft gekochte Birnen, sehr lecker

it's time to change my morning habits!

Kimberly Geneviève said...
