I adore breakfast. It’s not only the most important meal of the day, but also the most flexible.

You can have everything from a chocolate chip pancake to a breakfast taco, an omelette to a bowl of oatmeal. I am always looking for ways to change up my regular breakfast routine, and this past term that I spent in London, I had a breakfast revelation.

It was called Moma — this British product that comprised a small pot filled with oats, yogurt, and fruit. They were incredible. Our FSP used to fight to get them in the morning. I developed an addiction. I was eating Moma for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I left London hoarding about two to three in my backpack, but those quickly finished.

Fortunately, however, I have found a recipe for this breakfast delight in Collis.

  1. Grab a scoop of oatmeal (use a packet and add hot water if the pots are out)
  2. Grab some yogurt — I prefer plain, strawberry or vanilla — and a banana
  3. Once the oatmeal has cooled a little bit, add, bit by bit, the yogurt, so that the oatmeal is pretty cold by the time you’ve dumped all of it in
  4. Slice up the banana into the bowl and mash with a spoon, et voilà!
