Energise with a good breakfast

December 3, 2015

Energise with a good breakfast!

Make sure you set yourself up for the day by eating a healthy meal that will satisfy your appetite and set stage for smart food choices through out the day. If you skip breakfast you may find that you will overeat during the day. Ideally choose a hearty breakfast that combines carbs, fibre and protein. 

Below I have listed some of my preferred healthy dishes

  • Scrambled or poached eggs on whole meal toast
  • Avocado and egg on whole meal toast 
  • Smoked salmon on an avocado
  • Tuna on avocado 
  • Poached eggs, peri peri sauce, cottage cheese on whole meal crackers/toast

  • Poached eggs and spinach with whole meal toast
  • Mashed avocado on whole meal toast/crackers
  • One sliced apple with Peanut butter 
  • Sun warrior Chocolate Protein powder mixed with Oats
  • Smoked salmon, lemon juice and scrambled/poached eggs (can add whole meal toast)
  • Bransflakes with sliced banana, coconut/almond milk
  • Omelette with 3 egg whites and 1 whole egg (yolk included) add ingredients such as tomatoes, mushrooms, tuna/ham, cheese, onions
  • Oats made with water with added raisins, cherries and sultanans
  • Salmon Eggs Benedict 

On the Go breakfast Smoothies

The Avocado is officially Queen Green

July 16, 2015

Avocados – Sorry Kale you’re no longer Queen Green… All Hail the Avocado!

Now before I go any further, I would just like to point out that I have been obsessed with the avocado since day one (it probably helps that I am a vegetarian/pescatarian)

Why should you be eating them?!

  • Avocados help aid weight loss
  • Boosts your brain performance
  • Incredibly nutritious
  • Avocado help control blood pressure
  • Improves your heart health
  • One of the cleanest produce around
  • Contain more potassium then bananas
  • Loaded with fibre and antioxidants
  • May help prevent cancer
  • Easy to incorporate into your diet
  • THEY ARE DELICIOUS

Here are some of the most abundant nutrients, in a single 3.5 ounce (100 gram) serving (3):

  • Vitamin K: 26% of the RDA.
  • Folate: 20% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin C: 17% of the RDA.
  • Potassium: 14% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B5: 14% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin B6: 13% of the RDA.
  • Vitamin E: 10% of the RDA.

Then it contains small amounts of Magnesium, Manganese, Copper, Iron, Zinc, Phosphorous, Vitamin A, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin) and B3 (Niacin).

This is coming with 160 calories, 2 grams of protein and 15 grams of healthy fats. Although it contains 9 grams of carbs, 7 of those are fibre so there are only 2 “net” carbs, making this a low-carb friendly plant food.

There is literally SO much you can too with these green babies. You can have avocado on toast, add them to smoothies and salads… You can create a stuffed avocado by adding a flavourful filling of your choice say tuna, egg, goats cheese, prawns, smoked salmon, vegetables, couscous… AHHH I’m hungry again.

Avocado's rule!

 

On that note I will leave you with some mouth-watering pictures of avocado dishes that you could try out at home.
