There was no greasy breakfast or hangover for hubby and I this year.
Just a 6am wake up (thanks Poppy!) with avocado and tomato on multigrain toast and a super-charged smoothie to kick-start 2012 with all the healthy energy we can muster.
Packed with seasonal bananas and apricots, high fibre soy milk, oatbran and then sweetened with maple syrup; it made us feel great about getting the year started.
Then we packed Poppy into the car and headed to Manly beach for a bit of sun and a delicious seafood platter at the pub overlooking the beach.
