Rice Pudding with Mango Sauce

Today the weather is cloud so let’s make a sunny breakfast. Today I’ve made a rice pudding. Rice is a good for your digestive system especially in the morning. It fills you with an energy for a whole day. Fruits fill your body with a bunch of vitamins. Having a breakfast is very important, do not skip it. I know nowadays people is so busy. For the most of us it’s simplier and faster instead of having a real breakfast take something on the go or even skip it. But the breakfast can be easy, healthy and fast to make and not only breakfast. So spend 15-20 minutes on the kitchen and make for yourself and for your family a nice breakfast.

Papaya Berries Smoothie Bowl

Do you want a half of papaya for breakfast? Yes, please!) I so miss an island vibes, ocean, salty water on my skin.. Hawaii take me back) Of course in California we have an ocean but for the most time it’s freezing near the ocean at least in Northern Cali where we live now. There is no way you can swim on the ocean because it’s really cold. I mean reeaaally!) I’ve swum one time in Pacifica but I was wearing a surf suit)) There was 28F (14C) degree outside. And it were summer time. So I guess you got a picture)) But in Hawaii you can enjoy warm ocean and soak on the sun.

If you ever have been to Hawaii you know that a half of papaya you can find almost in each cafe for breakfast. Papaya offers not only a good taste and sense of tropics but is an excellent source of antioxidants vitamin C, vitamin A and vitamin E have each been associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer. The healthy food could be and it should be delicious that’s for sure.

In Hawaii usually a half of papaya serves with a lemon or yogurt. My version a little bit fancier. I’ve decided to add more ingredients in it.  All you need to make my version of Papaya Smoothie Bowl:

From what should I start? We love Hawaii, we love island (tropical) lifestyle. We spent there one week and we in loved with it.

And in places like Hawaii you can finally exhale and it’s an amazing feeling of relief..
