In the mood for a champagne breakfast, but on a beer budget? Here’s a recipe that will satisfy your gourmet urge without breaking the bank.
It requires only three ingredients and takes around 5 minutes to prepare, so it’s economical in every way.
As a child, I always thought broccoli florets were the baby children of tall trees. My mum used to tell me, “If you eat your broccoli, you’ll be as tall as a tree!” Highly effective (no pun intended), given that I was a foot shorter than anyone in my class. Sadly, I’ve since learned that broccoli does not make you taller (I remain vertically challenged), but it is high in vitamin C and fiber, so who’s complaining.
