Breakfast Club


Once upon a time, I was part of the “don’t eat anything until 1100hrs” club. I was a major breakfast skipper. I thought that eating less in a day would make me lose weight. In fact it did the complete opposite. I gained 10kg and my metabolism slowed right down. I’m not saying the the meal skipping was  completely to blame for the weight gain, but it defiantly contributed. 

I now wake up every morning, do my 30-45minute walk, then come home to eat. 

I have usually smashed two meals before 1100hrs now! Haha! 

Over the past week I have been eating very strictly and sticking to a meal plan of healthy food choices. Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day, so I’m going to share with you my top 5 picks. 

SMOOTHIE BOWL


1/2 a frozen Banana

30g vanilla protein

50g spinach

ice

30g oats

1. Blend all ingredients together and enjoy straight away.

Note – this is a great meal on the run in smoothie jar, or you can sit down to it in a bowl, topped with your favourite granola.

Eggs on Rye


2 slice rye toast

3 tbsp organic tin tomatoes

2 organic eggs

30g cottage cheese 

1. Cook the rye.

2. Spread the tin tomatos evenly on the toast.

3. Cook the eggs with the 30g cottage cheese wished in.

Breakfast Protein Loaf 

250g organic oats

2 organic eggs

90g vanilla protein (can use almond meal and vanilla essence of you refuse to use protein)

1 Apple

Cinnamon

1 tbsp maple

1 tbsp coconut oil or peanut butter for good fats

50mls coconut water.

1. Preheat oven to 180degrees

2. Blend all ingredients together.

3. Put in oven proof dish.

4. Mix in 100g blueberries and a small handful of trail mix on top (optional). I also added a chopped Apple.
5. Bake for 30-45min on 180 degrees. It truly all depends on your oven.

Note – Serve warm or cold. Serves 5. Can freeze.

Great for meal prepping for the week.

Protein Pancakes

30g oats

1 egg

30g vanilla protein

1/2 apple

1/2 tsp cinnamon

50mls water.

1. Blitz ingredients in blender

2. Place mixture in the fry pan and cook untill golden each side.

Note –  It’s so easy. Topped with Greek yogurt, blueberries and prunes.

Breakfast Burrito



1 mountain bread

Greens from the garden (spinach and kale)

30g cottage cheese

30g basil and oregano tin tomatoes

2 organic eggs

1. Cook the eggs

2. On the mountain bread, place the cottage cheese, tomatos, cooked eggs, green and salt and pepper to taste.

3. Enjoy cold or you can place in the sandwich presser.
All these breakfast meals took no longer than 15minutes each to make. Some of them can be pre perpared the night before.

I hope you found some breakfast inspiration in this blog post.

My Healthyland Blueberry Smoothie 

My wedding is coming up in under 3 months. I decided to meal prep and plan my weekly meals again. Since becoming a mum I LOVE my outings to Cafes with grandparents, aunties, uncles, friends etc, but I am a huge fan of home cooking. 

There are so many cafes around that serve healthy, nutritious foods, but I want to go back to having my 4-5 good healthy meals a day. Not just breakie, cafe healthy lunch and dinner. Or coffee and forget to eat. My training is doing well, but I miss my passion creating food recipes for you all and myself. 

So watch this space, the next week I will be sharing my healthy meal prep with you all and sharing some clean recipes on my blog.

This is my afternoon tea today. It’s a blueberry, greens smoothie.  I am time poor as I’m trying to sort out work and spend time with my little man!

1 handful of baby spinach leaves.

Then pour in fry pan to cook 8-10 small pancakes.

This does 2-3 days worth.

Raw Chocolate Dip. 


I decided I wanted to make a delicious dip to go with fruit. So off I went to look in Priceline at there superfood section. I wanted something that could nourish my body but still taste delicious.

I purchased a Natures Way organic cacao, as I fancied something chocolatey (is that a word?).

They had other great products like Maca, super greens but I wanted to create a dessert.


I had Cruz’s approval too haha…

Cacao is high in magnesium, calcium, zinc and lots of the Vitamin B groups.


Recipe for the cacao dip. 

3 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp 100% peanut butter

1 tsp Manuka honey


Melt!


Then mix in 3 tbsp of @natureswayoz organic cacao and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

Serve Instantly with chopped fruit. I used strawberries and banana 🍓🍌🍫.


Perfect for a morning tea, dessert or a party.
Enjoy responsibly ☺️
Cacao is also available online too here – NATURES WAY CACAO-PRICELINE
