We have long been admirers of Kitchen Matters author and acclaimed cooking instructor Pamela Salzman. Her mantra is simple: eat well, live well, be well, and stems from her lifelong love of food, cooking, gardening and nutrition. Here at Lunya, we couldn't agree more. Second to sleep, we believe eating a healthy breakfast is vital to leading a productive day, helping maintain focus at work, and jumpstarting metabolism.
Pamela came by The Bedroom to help us create seven simple breakfast recipes for each day of the week, inspired by the busy woman on the go. We also got to chatting about her busy morning routine, because let's face it - we’re all familiar with that morning scramble. We hope you enjoy!
What time do you usually wake up?
5:45am weekdays and I usually can’t sleep past 6:30am on the weekends!
Tell us a bit about your morning ritual. What's the first thing you do each morning?
I scrape my tongue, then make a quart of warm lemon water and drink half of it before working out. After I get my kids out the door, I go to my work out - usually some type of cardio mixed with a few weights. I drink the other half of the lemon water, shower and then I eat breakfast.
Coffee or Tea?
Tea, either green or matcha.
I listen to podcasts in the morning while I am getting ready and in the car on my way to work. Right now, I'm really loving the goop podcast, and Rich Roll.
Sit-down breakfast, or grab and go?
Weekdays are grab and go, but I bring my frother and tonic essentials with me to work and make myself a proper superfood matcha latte or tumeric latte before I start prepping for a class.It’s usually quick and sometimes eaten in my car on the way to teach a cooking class! I’d rather eat slowly in my car than swallow my breakfast in 2 seconds in my kitchen. Weekends, I take my time with breakfast and the newspaper.
