One of advantages of temporarily living in California is an unlimited access to California oranges. Since 6 weeks T, squeezed pounds of them and I’m trying to add it to almost each meal. As you all know oranges contain a large dose of vitamin C, so it’s all about health, not this amazing juicy and refreshing taste.
But life likes to play tricks on us from time to time and despite the excess of vitamin C in my body I caught a cold. The fact that I run 6 km in a rain, in an evening with a fair wind around, could have had a tiny impact on the whole situation. When me and Mr T. made it to the ocean we were tired and wet but happy. 5 minutes later we were freezing and not that happy anymore. We could only think and talk about how to get something dry to wear and hot to drink. So, I have a cold. It’s not fun at all as we’ve got only 2 weeks in San Francisco left. My heart and stomach demand oranges, so starting from the early morning hours, I eat them.
You will need (for 2 servings):
- 1 california orange (ok, not necessarily california one)
- 1 blood orange
- 2 tbsp pistachios
- 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 50g granola
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup natural yogurt
Recipe is not complicated at all. The only thing you need to prepare are roasted pistachios and pumpkin seeds. To do so heat the oven and roast them for about 5 minutes with a bit of an olive oil. Cut the oranges, spread with granola, pistachios and the pumpkin seeds, add a little bit of honey and yogurt and it’s ready.
