A Ski Worthy Breakfast

If you are going to be skiing hard for 4-5 hours a day, it is essential that you get in a good breakfast full of carbs and sugar. Or at least that's what I tell myself to justify my love for a big sugary breakfast. 

On my first morning I tried some of my dad's homemade marmalade with a croissant. He went obsessed with making his own marmalade this year because he wanted a low sugar variety and didn't trust any of the ones available at the supermarket. Click here for the recipe.

My dad's homemade marmalade

The marmalade was good, sweet with a hint of sour and bitter but it's not what I have been craving for. This morning Robert (my brother) and I decided to make waffles. Oh yeah. I frickin love waffles and there aren't many places in London that serves them, that's why I am going to take full advantage while I am here. I tried to buy a waffle machine in London a few years ago but the cheapest available was around 50 pounds! It's only around $20 here in the US. 

It is so easy especially that we have the ready mix batter. All you need to make 3 waffles are:
1 Egg
3 tablespoon of oil
3/4 cups of water
1.5 cups of waffle mix

Main Ingredients
Mix it up
Pour it in

While the waffle mix cooks, Robert starts chopping up whatever fruit we can find in the fridge.  You can also use strawberries, blueberries, pineapple or whatever you have..

We used watermelon, banana, apple and almonds
When the waffle looks golden brown you know it's ready
Pour the maple syrup

Pour in the syrup and it's ready to eat! If you have whipping cream too, even better. Unfortunately we were out of cream, but if I had some, there would be a dollop on there.
