Are you tired of scrambled, pouched or hard boiled eggs? You are not alone. The trick to enjoying a delicious savoury breakfast even during the weekdays is to bake a delicious frittata. They are so easy to make and you can really throw in anything you have leftover from the weekend. For this recipe I decided I would add in two of my go to vegetables packed with micronutrients to keep you feeling fabulous and full of energy......Kale and Sweet Potatoes. Starting your day with a savoury frittata will give you a healthy source of protein and fats to keep you feeling satified, slow down the release of glucose into your blood and it may even prevent any sugar cravings you have during the day. Give this recipe a go or switch it up to include your favourite veggies.
'Feed your mind, body and soul with nourishing foods'
2-3 small sweet potatoes grated or spiralized
6 organic/pasture raised eggs
1-2 large handful of Kale chopped finely
1 shallot chopped into thin slices
1 garlic clove crushed (optional)
1/2 cup of milk alternative (I used almond milk)
1 tsp himalayan salt
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup of chopped sundried tomatoes (rinsed of oil)
1/4 cup coriander (optional)
Preheat the oven to 175C and line a 8x8 dish with baking paper to make it easy to remove the frittata when cooked through.
In a pan heat a bit of coconut oil or rapeseed oil and saute the shallots for 1-2 minutes, add in the garlic and sweet potaotes just to soften lightly. Then lightly toss through the kale until just wilted. Remove from the heat and set aside.
In a large bowl whisk your eggs, add in the milk, sea salt, pepper, coriander. Add in the cooked veggies and stir to combine. Then pour into the prepared baking dish.
Bake in the oven for 35-45 minutes watch that it doesn't burn but that it is cooked through.
Slice into portions and serve with fresh rocket salad and 1/4 sliced avocado or other veggies of choice.
** Can be frozen into portions for a quick breakfast on the go during the week or on the weekend.
I woke up this morning and felt inspired by some of the ingredients I had in the fridge so I thought I would create a new green juice recipe. Having gone out for a few drinks last night I felt like my body needed a bit of cleanse to help my liver get rid of the toxins that have built up. What better way to do this then with a green juice.
So for this green juice I placed all of the ingredients through the juicer and served it up in my favourite half pint glass from Cogges Farm in Witney. This recipe served 2 ppl. You can keep the second portion for later in the day if you need a pick me up or energy boost.
4-5 stalks of celery
1-2 green or juicing apples
1 lime (peeled if not organic)
handful of mint leaves
Note: Place one apple in first followed by the other ingredients and then finish with the other apple. You could also add in some extra greens like spinach or kale, be creative play around with the flavours and tastes and see what new recipe you can come up with.
