This is my family’s traditional St. Patrick’s Day bread. My grandmother has had this recipe for longer than I’ve been alive. I was SHOCKED to find out this wasn’t real Irish Soda Bread, but instead more commonly known as Spotted Dog. Whatever you call it, it is unbeatable topped with a bit of butter.

Eating good breakfast to continue the day had become a good habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my day off healthfully. The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and gives me power to take on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the root of all disease, but fruit is also loaded with fibre, which is best for your digestive system and helps keep you feeling full all day , and not want likely grab a snack out of the street food before lunchtime.
Make fruit a morning habit is simple . Simply put the fruit in your refrigerator next to the sweet drink or on the table next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
