My Favorite Travel Breakfasts…

23 Jul

You already know I love to travel.  You can certainly be aware of this by reading my previous posts on my recent visits to New York, Mexico, Paris, India, Miami…

And when I travel I get extra hungry, particularly for breakfast.  I can skip lunch; I can skip dinner… but I would never ever skip breakfast.  I am a sucker for big breakfasts and this is what I usually try to do:


Start with a fruit salad – Any fruit you like will do.  I try to stick to acid fruits together, like pineapple, grapes, strawberries.  And when I go for melons – watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew – I try not to mix them with any other fruit.  I also like the papaya and mango combination, if available.  While in India recently, I enjoyed a lot papaya and pomegranate seeds… YUM!!

At home it’s difficult for me to make me a fruit salad,  that’s why I make myself smoothies from fresh fruits or fruits that I froze myself.  When I travel is simple to just serve yourself fruits that someone else cut for you…



Follow with something more hearty – I like oatmeals, pancakes, breakfast potatoes, toasts,  etc.  A few of my favorite things to eat while I travel are:



And when I am traveling outside the US, I like to also try a few local things, even if they’re far removed from what I am used to having.  Like Chole Bhature or Dosas when I was traveling in India, “tacos al vapor” while in Guadalajara or croissants and tartines when in Paris… 

Include some kind of freshly squeezed Juice – Orange Juice is usually my favorite, but I can go for watermelon, grapefruit, apple or even vegetable juice… whatever is freshest and prettiest.



Hope that if you’re not an avid breakfast eater, this gives you a few ideas on what to try the next time you have the buffet in front of you… or inspire you to get adventurous to try interesting breakfasts when you are traveling…

    You should check out what is in that casserole at Cracker Barrel, I had to stop eating there when I became vegetarian because it was hard to find a single vegetarian item on their menu, nearly everything included some type of pork fat.

      Thanks for the heads up… I have asked, but I will continue to ask if I ever return there. Thanks again.
