Guppy Gourmet

Chef Claudia doing her morning magic…

Although we are operating out of a very tiny space and on a tight budget, the two chicks have been eating very well while on the road. To do this we started with some great staples from our beloved Trader Joes. Then you need some creative menu planning. Lastly you need to manage in a really small space. This trend to simplify is something we have been thinking about especially as it relates to living in more compact spaces.

Here are some of our breakfast meals:

Veggie omelette with spelt tortillas

Ezekial cinnamon french toast with yogurt, blueberries & peaches (Donna especially like this one and requested a repeat.)

Swiss Miss: Plain or flavored yogurt mixed with raw oatmeal, granola & fresh fruit. Sprinkle with cinnamon & walnuts and agave nector to your liking.

Mexican frittata made with eggs, red pepper, spinach & feta. I added some stale bruschetta slices to absorb the egg mixture and give it a puffy quality. Serve with avocado slices, salsa and tortillas.

Hope you enjoyed this week’s sample of meals that are healthy, inexpensive and made in a confined galley.

Bon appetit from the Guppy Gourmet!

    I want to be a Groupie on the Guppy Gourmet Gastronomie Gas Guzzler! But what is a spelt tortilla? And are there any wine dinners planned?

    • A spelt tortillas are made from sprouted grain and can be found in any health food stores in a bagel, bread or tortillas form. They have less glycemic response so I prefer it over wheat.
      As for wine dinners, you are a girl after our own heart. We have shared several happy hours with wine, cheese, hummus & bruschetta spreads. Next one will be in Golden CO sometime in the next few days, want to join us?

    Jeez — that is better than any breakfast I’ve had lately. The occasional frozen waffle just doesn’t compete . . .
