Proper strawberry season is yet to come but I am an all-year-round strawberry lover (read: addict). Polish strawberries are the best in the world but when they are not around, you need to find alternative sources. Thank God for Spain. If I need to buy produce grown in other countries, I tend to stick to Europe. It makes me feel better, knowing that my strawberries only traveled over a few territories, rather than crossed the whole of the Atlantic ocean.
So, this is my stylish strawberry-inspired breakfast on a lazy Sunday: Greek yoghurt with strawberry crunch (by M&S) – a wonderful mix of crunchy oat clusters with slices of almond and chunks of dried strawberries, with added almond flakes and dried cranberries (for extra goodness boost), and a home-made strawberry & banana smoothie. To keep with the color scheme I decided to serve it with “Harper’s Bazaar Great Style” book, an inspiring guide on all you need to know about being chic. Coming from a writer at Bazaar, it presents dozens of looks by the likes of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Gwyneth Paltrow and SJP, and shares tips from renowned designers, including Carolina Herrera, Giorgio Armani and Donna Karan. It’s a must-have book for all fashion lovers (not just for lazy Sunday mornings). I found it in London last summer – in the Oxfam Books store in Portobello Road in Notting Hill. To be consumed with strawberries or on its own. Either way, enjoy!
