Cheezy omelette 

This is a fabulous balance of protein, healthy fats & carbs. This simple gluten-free, dairy-free vegetarian dish, that should start your day on a good note.

I wasn’t a big egg eater until I saw a Naturopath in July 2015 who suggested I add more to my diet, due to being a lazy pescetarian (I love seafood, but don’t often bother to make it), now I aim for 2 organic eggs every second day.

I would love to hear how you enjoy eggs; or what your favourite breakfast is.

INGREDIENTS

2 x organic eggs (I used Southern Highlands brand – from Wholefoods House in Woollahra)
1 cup kale
2 tablespoons parsley
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 avocado, sliced (If avocadoes are in short supply in your area, or out of season, replace with ricotta or feta)
2 slices preferred bread (I use Naturis organic buckwheat bread)
2 wedges lemon
Chilli flakes (optional)

METHOD

1. Heat the stove to a high heat. Tip in olive oil then kale & parsley.
2.  Stir constantly for 1 minute then crack in 2 eggs & put in 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast. Flip over after 1 minute, take out once cooked.
3. Serve with toast, sliced avocado & lemon wedges. Chilli optional

Green smoothie 

Here’s a tip, a can of coconut milk can look intimidating & in the past, I’ve avoiding opening one, thinking I won’t be able to finish the whole thing: freeze it into individual ice cubes (in my case, heart shaped).

Following my naturopath visit on Friday, I realised I did need to pump the nutritional value of my smoothies, but am not yet willing to put in a raw egg (although my brother swears by it).

1 x avocado

4 x coconut milk ice cubes

1 x banana

1 big handful of baby spinach

A sprinkle of Heilala vanilla powder

Top with organic strawberries & a sprinkle of chia seeds

METHOD

Blend all ingredients placing baby spinach in blender first, then vanilla powder, then heavy ingredients on top.

If required, slowly add a bit of water to get your desired consistency. Mine was pretty thick 

   
 

Millet, avocado & tomato

I love millet but until last night, I was hopeless about cooking it.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup millet

1 tomato

1 avocado

1/2 lemon (to be used for dressing)

1 tablespoon olive oil (for dressing)

HOW TO COOK MILLET LIKE A PRO

1. Throw 1/2 cup of millet into a saucepan

2. Dry toast for 3-4 minutes, stirring constantly.

3. Pour in 1 1/4 cups water (it will spit). Bring to boil then lower heat to a simmer. Set the timer for 12 mins. Remove from heat. Let it sit 10 minutes with the lid on.

4. Chop parsley

5. Cut avocado in half, remove stone & scoop out flesh with a spoon.

6. Slice tomato 

7. Once all items are in the bowl, squeeze over some lemon & drizzle over olive oil

As always, Himalayan pink salt, pepper & chilli to taste
