What you fuel yourself with at breakfast makes a huge difference to how you feel throughout the day. We don't know how we got to the place in society where we think that eating sugar-loaded cardboard out of a box is in any way a good thing to do for your body!
A plate full of veggies, protein and healthy fats sets you up to think clearly, have plenty of energy and be at your best. And often whipping up a wholesome breakfast is pretty quick and easy. But even if it takes 5-10min longer...perhaps it's worth getting up that little bit earlier? Your body will thank you for it in the short and the long-term. We promise it's worth it :)
Here's Lynn's "favourite things" breakfast recipe for ya..
Several stalks of Cavolo Nero Kale
3 small tomatoes, halved
A handful of Rocket
A handful of Italian parsley or basil
Tasty cheddar (if you tolerate dairy)
In a medium hot skillet heat some butter or olive oil (I love Corban’s Garlic Infused Olive Oil**). Add salt and pepper and lay your halved tomatoes cut side down in the skillet. Sauté for a few minutes and then turn. Add the stalks of kale and let them sauté until they crisp up. Remove these veggies to your plate.
In a small bowl whisk your eggs and add chopped parsley or basil, some shredded tasty cheese. Pour in the skillet and add a few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce. When almost cooked through flip over.
Serve with the rocket leaves either grouped on the plate or chopped and placed on top of your eggs.
**If you are FODMAP and do not tolerate fresh garlic you may find this olive oil a real treat. It gives you the garlic flavour without the discomfort that comes from eating fresh garlic.
Alternatives: Fresh avocado slices also go well with this and can be substituted for one of the other sides that may not be available. I also love a bit of Kimchi with my eggs and it is great for your gut health. Always look for one in the refrigerator section as these are the ‘live’ varieties. Kimchi is spicy and has a bit of heat so if you can’t tolerate that then get a ‘live’ sauerkraut instead.
