My Mexican breakfast
For the last couple of months, I’ve been having a non-dairy smoothie for breakfast, packed with lots of different super healthy ingredients that I blend myself, at home. I take advantage of the local and/or organic products that are available in San Miguel de Allende.
The traditional Mexican breakfasts include two or more of the following items: eggs, beans (refried or ‘de la olla‘ – which translates as ‘straight from the pot), coffee (flavored with cinnamon), some ‘pan dulce’ (Mexican pastries: conchas and churros are big favourites) and perhaps orange juice.
Some people like to buy tamales to from street vendors on their way to work; with their respective cup of atole (a drink made of corn dough and milk or water, which can also include sugar and other ingredients to give it a flavor: guava, chocolate, strawberries, etc). If we feel a bit ‘fancier’ and have time to spare we may have chilaquiles, in green sauce or red sauce, with or without shredded chicken. 🙂

My Mexican commute
I get to work by bus. My commute is usually 20-25 minutes long, but it can sometimes be shorter, depending on how fast the bus driver goes!
Thanks so much for sharing, Bere! Other Mexican readers, what does your breakfast + beauty routine consist of?
P.S. My 3 product makeup bag!
