    Lia, this is almost exactly what I’ve been eating for breakfast all summer and loving it! I use toasted sprouted semolina bread and sometimes add cucumber or a fried egg if I’m really in need of nourishment.

    Oh yea on that fried egg. If I’m feeling decadent I’ll add a slice of bacon. I love the idea of cucumbers, though. A little extra ‘fresh’. Great to hear from you, Karen!
