The perfect Balinese breakfast; papaya, pineapple and kiwi with lime and coconut.

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, 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 think that might be the perfect breakfast, especially in the summer when I don’t want anything too heavy.

Some days, I need a bit more protein to rev my motor, so I add a cup of Fage (plain Greek yogurt) drizzle it with honey, and top it with chopped, toasted almonds.
