Although I personally love having eggs for breakfast, it’s nice to have a bit of variety to spice up the way you start your day.
Here are my top 5 quick and easy breaky ideas to chuck into your morning routine.
I play around with ingredients and encourage you to design your own. One of my favourites includes the following ingredients whizzed up in a blender
1 young drinking coconut, pour the coconut water into the blender and scoop out the flesh
1 raw eggs (for that protein kick, promise you won’t taste them) or 1 scoop of pea protein powder
1/2 mixed berries
2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp Maca powder
1 tsp Acai powder
Blend and enjoy.
This is another one you can get really creative with. This porridge is delicious and very filling.
3/4 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
500 ml water
375 ml milk
Combine the quinoa and water (NO MILK YET) in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat until the porridge simmers and cook, covered for about 10 mins.
Stir in HALF the milk and your selection of berries and nuts, or raw cacao & cinnamon and cook, covered, for another 10 minutes.
This dishes up two serves, so don’t be tempted to eat the whole thing.
Fluffy Buckwheat Pancakes
Yes you read right, pancakes. They’re a delicious healthy version to indulge on the weekends.
1 cup low-cal ricotta
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup self-raising wholemeal flour
fresh mixed berries
Whisk the ricotta, egg and milk until all ingredients are smooth. Then whisk in the sifted flours.
Use a little coconut oil to grease a non-stick frying pan then pour a generous amount of pancake mixture into the pan. Cook for about 2-3 mins on each side, you’ll see the pancakes puff and go golden. Repeat with the remaining mixture and serve warm topped with berries and yoghurt.
The perfect scrambled eggs on toast with mixed herbs
This is my morning ritual on most days.
Whisk two eggs and a splash of milk in a mixing bowl. Cook over medium heat in a saucepan (works best). While that’s cooking toast some sprouted or rye bread and slice half an avocado.
The eggs will be cooked when the texture is still moist, creamy and a little sticky. You don’t want to overcook them.
Place the eggs on your toast and top with fresh cut garden herbs. The herbs infuse the eggs with fragrance and life. Delish.
Wrap it up
When you get sick of toast try opting for a breaky wrap. Grab 2 slices of mountain bread and fill it with mixed baby leaves, scrambled eggs, herbs, avocado and some home made chili. Wrap it up and enjoy.
I know i said top 5, but this recipe is a must to add to any savoury dish. My home made Chilli Sauce. I picked this recipe up at the Golden Door Health Retreat a while ago, it has since become a staple in our fridge.
Blend together 300g chopped chillies (red) with 2 tbs apple cider and 2 tbs organic tamari sauce.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge and it should last you for a couple of weeks. I literally put it on EVERYTHING.
