Sometimes the simplest food tastes the best. My mom moved to Maui when I was in college and I would spend my holidays visiting her. Breakfast was a papaya picked off the tree in her backyard squeezed with a bit of lime juice. Perfection! Years later when Spencer and I went to Ubud, Bali and stayed in a little hut, breakfast would magically appear on the doorstep each morning. It was a plate of sliced papaya, pineapple and banana sprinkled with fresh coconut and a lime wedge. I still think that might be the most perfect breakfast, especially in the summer when I don’t want anything too heavy.
These days, I need a bit more protein to rev my motor, so I add a cup of Fage, plain Greek yoghurt, drizzle it with honey and top it with chopped, toasted almonds. So here is that breakfast for you today. I found a strawberry papaya in my local market and added it to the papaya wedge along with fresh pineapple, and banana.
