Do you like sweet breakfast? I always crave sweet fruits in the mornings after I wake up. Bananas are great energy filled food, perfect for the start of a new day. Paired with blackberries and figs, they bring the morning to another level. A sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and a beautiful raw creation is served.

When I was little, my grandmother had all kinds of fruits, berries and vegetables in her garden. I remember feeding our dog with blackberries and he enjoyed them as much as I! Fresh blackberries were always my favourite kind of berries.

Sometimes I really miss the times spent in my grandmother’s garden eating real, organic food without realizing how important and nourishing it is for my body. Now I live in an apartment, thousands of miles away from my grandparent’s place and getting organic produce is really not that easy anymore. I still enjoy eating fresh fruits and vegetables as much as before though, if not even more.
