Breakfast Parfait

I’m a typical morning person, and have kind of become more “extreme” in regards to waking up early than I used to. These days I can hardly even remember last time I slept past nine o’clock. I’m so used to waking up around six in the morning that I naturally wake up early even on the weekends which is a little annoying – I guess my body can’t tell which day it is :P.

According to a Swedish journalist (Björn Hedensjö) the whole morning- or evening personality types are not something you can control yourself but rather something that is genetic, like brown or blonde hair. I’m not sure if I believe that entirely, bu what do I know? Maybe he’s right…

And maybe it’s the same with breakfast, the most important (and delicious!) meal of the day. I LOVE breakfast, and the best ones are homemade granolas.

Here is one of my favorites…
