From Sea Level – Starting Your Day Deliciously
Photography by Megan Schlobohm, Chef – SV Lolalita
We’ve all heard people say, “I need a vacation from my vacation,” and what an oxymoron that might seem. But, we all know the truth – relaxing can actually be exhausting. First, the anticipation of travelling to the Islands gets our heart rate going; then comes sailing and splashing around the British Virgin Islands to take in every water activity on offer; eating all the incredible cuisine available; swimming, snorkelling, sunbathing, dancing, and karaoke into the wee hours of the night – with all this, our senses are filled with vibrant colours and swaying beats – it’s a joy, a pleasure and a great day and night is had by all. Then we sleep and our bright, beautiful, beloved sun greets us the next morning. Alas! We must do it all again.
This glorious and energetic ride can be helped with a little bit of mum-like advice: “eat your breakfast.”
Power up your fun-filled vacation day with this classic, savoury, fulfilling breakfast treat – loaded with whole grains, protein, freshness, and spice to fuel your most memorable Caribbean adventure.
