I love that combo, too, but have not tried it with flax seeds (I love flax seeds). Also works very well with fresh figs. Alas - I can no longer have dairy but can dream about it...

I enjoy infusing honey with different flavours such as a bit of ground chipotle or lavender or rosemary or citrus on my fruit.

That sounds delicious! Chipotle infused honey with mangos - yum! I think you may have given me a gift idea for my husband's birthday. He loves honeys, and he loves chipotle - I know he'd be thrilled to eat them together.

Wonderful! I like to cook outside the box and infusing honey is such a simple way to add tons of interesting flavour.

I made some hummus this morning to go with my falafel chips; I also scrambled two eggs. An unlikely combination, I know.

I was so depressed at breakfast time today because I really felt like toast :( So I had a big spoonful of peanut butter and a cup of coffee. I have some gluten free muesli but it doesn't taste like muesli so I don't really want to eat it. I'm not used to how gluten free foods taste yet.

Cream cheese and lox on a Glutino bagel. Yum!!!

OMG. I have to try that. I'd have to add capers or minced onions, but that sounds over the top good!
