Food Week: Simply Breakfast

27 Jun

So, breakfast.

The most important meal of the day or an unwelcome intrusion on your beauty sleep?

I have a mixed relationship with breakfast… during the week I’m the latter, at weekends the former. But whatever mood I’m in, I love an overhead photograph of it. Fortunate, considering that’s pretty much all you’ll find at Simply Breakfast.

Blogger Jennifer Causey is a professional lifestyle photographer, but shoots her morning meal each day for fun. Almost always overhead, always beautifully styled and always something 100% more exciting than my weekday Weetabix.

There’s something so pleasing to me about the concept of this blog and Jen’s beautifully understated photographs and minimal wordiness. You’ll find the odd recipe, snippet of insight and some really fascinating lists under the tabs at the top of the page (New York, gear, cookbooks…) but for the most part the pictures are left to speak quietly for themselves.

One final thing… I often have trouble convincing others that crumble is the ultimate breakfast food so was delighted to find an ally in Jennifer. Trust me, dollop on Greek yogurt and try it. You’ll never look back.

    I love breakfast! If it looked like Jennifer’s and came on that table I would love it even more (if possible)

    Like this – particularly like the look of that lovely wooden table! Beautifully styled. I’m afraid to say my breakfast is the same every single day (berry granola, banana, soya milk, black tea) which seems very dull when compared to all these lovely looking offerings. Saying that, breakfast is the one meal I truly relish, dull or not. It’s interesting how good photography and styling, as here, can elevate the simplest of ideas. Nice one!
